4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Compact Water Purifier for Traveling
By ED on April 5, 2018
I recently saw some articles about people spending a ridiculous amount of money for “raw water,” which is the idea that water taken straight from the source — without any sort of treatment — will help strengthen your immune system and overall health by getting back to the natural environment from whence we originally came…or something. 

To be honest, I can’t totally follow the logic behind it, and I’m pretty sure that anyone who believes in “raw” or “organic” water are the same folks who maintain that the Earth is flat and that vaccines are bad for you. The fact of the matter is that there is a lot of nasty stuff floating around in water that can make you sick, and a purification system of some sort can drastically reduce any unwanted illnesses and trips to the bathroom.

WHAT IT IS
Steripen’s Freedom Water Purifier is one of several ultraviolet water purifiers from the company, Steripen. The Freedom Water Purifier is supposedly their most compact version, which makes it ideal for foreign travel and backwoods excursions. Steripen claims that this product kills 99.9 percent of bacteria, viruses and protozoa that cause water-borne illness, and can purify 8,000 liters of water in its lifetime. It also doesn’t change the taste of the water, which is a plus. It’s basically a flashlight that you stick in your water (half a liter at a time) and swirl around for 48 seconds and the UV light kills all of the bad stuff, leaving you with safe drinking water.

WHAT I LIKE
I’ve used purification tablets before, and this thing is a heck of a lot easier than those. There are certainly cheaper ways to purify water (like the Life Straw), but I have yet to find one more compact, easy to use, and with the ability to purify as much water as the Steripen. It automatically turns on when it senses water and turns off as soon as the requisite amount of time has passed to obliterate any gut-busting microbes. No counting or responsibility on your part. Just stick, swirl, drink. 

I have a tendency to get really sick when traveling, so I thought it was worthwhile to invest in something that would be the equivalent of a nuclear bomb for any organisms looking to wreak havoc on my GI tract. It also has a rechargeable battery built in, so you’re never stranded without juice because of not having a battery.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE
First of all, it is expensive, at least by my standards. I wish this was closer to a $30 price point, but Amazon currently lists it for $56. That being said, if you’ve ever had severe GI issues from water borne pathogens, then you can probably justify coughing up the extra $26 for peace of mind. Secondly, and this is going to sound weird, Steripen put some sort of coating around the body of the device to make it feel softer and give it more grip, and it turns into a gummy mess that picks up all sort of dirt and debris. It doesn’t need the coating in the first place, and it seems odd to use a material that’s going to attract dirt and stuff when it is literally going to be plunged into your drinking water. The good news is that this gummy coating can be scraped off as long as you are patient and persistent. Other than price and this other odd issue, I haven’t run into anything else I dislike.

SHOULD YOU BUY ONE
Do you get sick frequently when traveling or hiking? Have you ever prayed to the porcelain gods and promised to do whatever it takes to never be in that position again? Then yes, I would buy one. The fact that it is so portable really makes it a great choice. If the price was better and it didn't have that weird gummy film on the handle, then it would have five stars instead of four.

While traveling in Honduras with some friends, we used it pretty frequently when we couldn’t procure bottled water and nobody got sick on the trip. For me, this is a huge success given how many times it was used on local water sources. Without controlling for all of the variables, it’s hard to say if this was the Steripen or some good luck, but either way I was happy. Also, let’s be honest, it was probably the Steripen.
