The SteriPEN Adventurer Opti water purifier with Solar Charging case is equipped with an optical water sensor for reliable purifing performance.

  • Solar charging clamshell case pulls double duty, recharging the included double-cell rechargeable CR123 lithium battery and providing handy, secure storage for the purifier
  • Simply clip the charging case onto a backpack or set it on the ground and aim it towards the sun to recharge the double-cell battery; empty charging case weighs 6.8 oz.
  • Solar panel recharges 1 double-cell battery in 2 - 5 days, depending on solar conditions; battery can be recharged via the included plug-in power adapter in 4 - 6 hrs.
  • SteriPEN Opti features an optical water sensor that detects whether or not the device is in water and only allows the UV lamp to activate when the SteriPEN is immersed
  • After pressing the button to activate the SteriPEN, immerse the lamp and optical sensor; the UV lamp will then activate and emit UV light and visible blue light
  • Optical sensor doubles as a backup LED flashlight that can be handy when walking to the stream to get water; operate flashlight with SteriPEN cap in place to protect the lamp
  • Adventurer Opti requires no pumping, chemicals, test strips, extended timekeeping or filters; leaves no aftertaste, will not clog and does not require lubrication
  • Innovative SteriPEN system uses UV light rays instead of chemicals to purify water for drinking
  • Ultraviolet (UV-C) light rays safely sterilize clear water by destroying 99.99% of protozoa (including Giardia and Cryptosporidia ), bacteria and even viruses
  • Long used by municipal water districts and bottling companies, low-level UV-C light treats water safely; plus, unit's light will not damage eyes or skin when used properly
  • SteriPEN protects you from risks that cause botulism, cholera, dysentery and typhoid, just to name a few
  • SteriPEN Adventurer Opti is simple to use: just press a button and gently agitate the water with a quick stir
  • Purifies 16 fl. oz. of water (cold or warm) in less than 1 min. or 32 fl. oz. in a 1.5 min.; fully charged battery provides up to sixty 16 fl. oz. treatments
  • Small size fits most containers—use it in cups, mugs, water bottles and canteens; carries easily in a shirt pocket
  • SteriPEN Adventurer Opti turns itself off once ultraviolet treatment is complete; light source can be used up to 8,000 times!
  • Watertight seals keep water away from the electronics; rubberized coating ensures secure handling in wet conditions
  • Low-power indicator lets you know when batteries need recharging; screw-off cap permits easy battery access
  • Use only on clear water, as cloudy, sediment-laden water hinders effectiveness; FitsAll prefilter (not included) clears particulates and debris from water
  • Opti can also be powered via 2 single-cell disposable CR123 lithium batteries (not included); never attempt to recharge disposable batteries in the solar case
  • Includes SteriPEN Adventurer Opti water purifier, solar charging case, 1 double-cell CR123 rechargeable lithium battery, AC adapter, neoprene carrying case and user manual
