Steripen Sidewinder

Date:26 October 2012 Tags:, ,

Sure, you can lug huge containers full of water along with you on your next camping trip. But why would you want to? Steripen’s Sidewinder conveniently generates safe drinking water wherever you are. It’s the first portable UV water purifier to require no batteries; a 90-second crank of its handle produces one litre of the life-giving stuff. The unit’s UV system, said to be good for purifying 8 000 litres of water, obliterates waterborne bacteria, viruses and protozoa such as giardia and cryptosporidium. It comes with a one-litre BPA-free bottle and pre-filter (so you can remove particles in suspension before treatment). Price: about R1 300.
