  • Features

    • Internal 2,200mAh li-ion polymer battery can be recharged from any USB power source; connect the included USB cable and start charging from a solar panel, laptop or car
    • Low-power indicator lets you know when battery needs recharging; when fully charged you can treat up to 50 liters
    • Ultraviolet (UV-C) light rays safely purify clear water by destroying 99.99% of protozoa (including Giardia and Cryptosporidia), bacteria and even viruses
    • UV-C purification protects you from risks that cause botulism, cholera, dysentery and typhoid, just to name a few
    • To purify your water, just click a button and gently agitate the water
    • Purifies 16 fl.oz. (0.5L) of water (cold or warm) in less than a minute or treat 32 fl. oz. (1L) in 90 seconds
    • Designed to fit perfectly into store-bought bottles of water: just insert the Steripen Ultra's lamp into the bottle and flip the bottle upside down to start treating the water
    • Small size fits most containers—use it in cups, mugs, water bottles and canteens
    • Steripen Ultra turns itself off once ultraviolet treatment is complete; can be used up to 8,000 times!
    • Watertight seals keep water away from the electronics; rubberized grips provide secure handling in wet conditions
    • Long used by municipal water districts and bottling companies, UV-C light treats water safely
    • Use only on clear water, as cloudy, sediment-laden water hinders effectiveness; FitsAll prefilter (sold separately) clears particulates and debris from water
    • Includes Katadyn Steripen Ultra water purifier, USB cable, carrying case and user instructions
