Next stop on the germophobe express


What luck! Another gadget perfectly suited for me, the resident germophobe.

Whether its from a faucet in a suspect country or from a babbling brook found on a camping trip, SteriPEN will help ensure that your H2O is safe to drink.

Using UV technology, SteriPEN destroys more than 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa in seconds, letting one rest assured that Montezuma will not be taking revenge. Operates on 4 AA batteries that can provide up to 140 uses. Comes with a lightweight storage case for easy packing.

Probably want to check this one out some more. Since UV is very rapidly attenuated by water I'm not sure the actual UV dose away from the probe is anywhere near the killing dose.


The site is actually http://www.steripen.com/, not http://www.streipen.com/
