Handheld Ultra-Violet Light Water Purifier

SteriPen Keeps You Safe from La Revancha de Montezuma. Good news for all those who would rather spend their vacation on the road and off the can!

One of the most common concerns voiced by those traveling to Mexico has to do with the quality of the drinking water. And there is reason to worry. Tap water in Mexico, even when designated Agua Portable (potable water) is definitely not for drinking. Really the only solution for good-tasting completely worry-free water is to buy one of the many varieties of mineral or distilled product.

What about the water used for other purposes: washing, brushing your teeth, etc. In most places in Mexico, you're probably fine using what comes from the tap, but if you have a delicate constitution or health issues, you'll be glad to know about this simple new device which can completely purify a glass or water in 90 seconds.

The Steri-Pen uses ultra-violet light to clobber the microscopic bugs hanging out in the water supply that make us sick. The UV emission from the tiny pen actually interrupts the DNA sequence of all bacteria and viruses, rending the water completely safe.

The SteriPen comes in two packages. The first is the SteriPen "Classic."

Product Description (from the manufacturer)

SterPEN Classic has been proven in the field by Appalachian Trail thru-hikers and Everest climbers. It uses 4 AA batteries that are not included. Batteries are an important choice to make. We strongly recommend Lithium or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries as they deliver 6 to 10 times more doses per set than Alkaline or Nickel Cadmium alternatives. Lithium or NiMH batteries will purify 170-230 16oz. (0.5L) glasses of water.

The SteriPEN Classic eliminates viruses, bacteria and protozoa as its Ultraviolet Light (UV) destroys the DNA of microbes. It is effective against Outdoor Microbes like Giardia and Cryptosporidium; Travel Pathogens that cause Diarrhea, Dysentry, Hepatitis, and Legionnaire's Disease; Household Germs such as Bird Flu and Influenzas, E. Coli & Salmonella; and Staph & Strep; Natural Disaster Risks like Botulism, Cholera, Smallpox and Typhoid.

SteriPEN Classic makes a great addition to Emergency Preparedness Kits.

The second model is the SteriPen Adveturer.
