SteriPEN Adventurer Opti Handheld UV Water Purifier
The SteriPEN Adventurer Opti Handheld UV Water Purifier harnesses the power of ultraviolet light to make water safe to drink. This same technology is used by leading bottled water manufacturers as well as major cities in the US, Europe, and Asia to purify water.
The SteriPEN Adventurer Opti utilizes an optical eye to sense the water and project UV light to destroy 99.9% of bacteria, protozoa and viruses quickly and effectively. UV light does not alter the taste, pH, or other properties of the water, and works without the introduction of chemicals to the water. The handheld system is easy to use does not require pumping or time consuming filtration. The patent-pending technology ensures safe use and provides purification in even the coldest of waters.
The optical sensor also doubles a great backup light when camping or taking a night-time walk to refill your water bottle. The Flashlight mode is activated by pressing and holding the single button down for three seconds. The clear lamp cover focuses the LED light.

I recommend you get a water-clear bottle so it's easy to see when the UV light turns off; Nalgene makes one in the Tritan series. Tinted bottles make it hard to see whether the light is glowing or not, especially in the sun.
In the party was another person who had an identical steripen [coincidentally acquired from Amazon too] that also failed. So in all two of twenty pens failed.
Fortunately neither party became ill largely through disciplined personal hygiene, the use of our back up procedures and guides taking us to streams that they believed were clean.
I know many have used steripens without an issue but frankly this concerned me because when it was really needed this product did not prove electrically reliable. If you do buy one I STRONGLY recommend you test test test it when you receive it rather than finding out in the field that you bought a lemon.
I recently went out and bought the Steripen with the USB charger which I can charge using a Solar powered backup battery. I would use the battery powered version for short trips but for extended trekking...I would use the USB version.
PROS - Simple, Works, Well Made
CONS - Hard to see the light in the daylight, non-standard battery (I carry an extra)
