    I don’t believe it. UV sterilization is ok but its not that good

    Believe it when its tested by a independent reputable lab otherwise I call BS.

    I have used a Steripen for purifying water when hiking in remote areas and in third world countries. I’ve never been crook after using it. It’s more convenient than using purifying tablets and I don’t need to buy dozens of water bottles in my travels.

    There’s always the question: what does this mean? 1/1000 means 1000/1000000. Consider the millions of bacterial in a heavily contaminated glass of water and its hardly comforting. That still leaves 1000’s of bacteria.

    I bought a Steri-PEN a few years ago and I take it everywhere overseas with a rugged wide mouthed water bottle. Despite any doubts about its 100% effectiveness it provides an additional source of purification that is generally far better than using chemical tablets. Its even great for use at airports before embarking as water at some airports and that served from on-board tanks is questionable. I also carry a small travel kettle for sterilising water in hotels. There are a number of countries on the safe list in which I have lived and worked where I wouldn’t drink the water straight from the tap.
