The SteriPEN Adventurer ultraviolet (UV) water purifier is the top water purification pick for many travelers, hikers, and campers because of it’s size, speed, and ease of use. Half the size of the SteriPEN Classic, the Adventurer weighs only 3.6 including batteries, but can purify 16 ounces of water in only 48 seconds.
SteriPEN offers the only patented handheld water purifiers that use ultraviolet light to destroy waterborne microbes. UV light has been used for more than 90 years in high-end water purification systems that are typically found in bottling plants, food production, hospitals, city water providers, and many more.
According to testing performed at the University of Maine, the University of Arizona, and the Oregon Health Sciences University, the ultraviolet light from the SteriPEN Adventurer effectively destroys more than 99.9% of protozoa, 99.99% of viruses, and 99.9999% of bacteria. This included testing against: Salmonella Typhimurium, E. coli Poliovirus, Cryptosporidum, Klebsiella terrigena, Streptococcus faecalis, Rotavirus, Bacillus subtilis (vegitative and spore), common yeast, Giardia and Coliphage MS2 just to name a few. In fact, the SteriPEN Adventurer ultraviolet water purifier meets the US EPA’s Guide Standard and Protocol for Testing Microbiological Water Purifiers.
We like the SteriPEN Adventurer so much that all of our staff members use one when traveling to areas with potentially unsafe water supplies and when hiking/camping.
The Adventurer come complete with what you need to get started including 2 disposable batteries, users guide, and nylon carry case. A perfect complement to the SteriPEN Adventurer is the Solar Charging Case. Note that we offer the SteriPEN Adventurer and Solar Charger together as a kit.
