SteriPEN Ultra UV Water Purifier

SteriPEN first popped onto our radar back in 2007. Since then, we’ve been traveling with ours to any destination where tap water might be a bit suspect. Every other year or so, the company manages to make their already ultra-compact, user-friendly water purifiers even better. Their latest version – the SteriPEN Ultra – is billed as “the most advanced UV water purifier in the world”.

Features include: a user-friendly, high-contrast OLED screen that provides performance and treatment data; the ability to treat 1L of water in just 90 seconds or 0.5L in 48 seconds; and the impact-resistant bulb is good for at least 8,000 treatments. Bonus: travelers will love the unit’s ability to charge via USB, wall outlet or portable solar panel.

Pricing + Availability

Available now for less than $100 USD directly from SteriPEN or (aff).

Disclosure: Vagabondish was provided one complimentary SteriPEN Ultra unit in advance of this review. Read our view on sponsored content.
