iStraw personal water purification
The iStraw is a lightweight polycarbonate straw fitted with a special membrane, which uses micro-filtration technology to clean your water. If you've tried chlorine tablets, you know how icky the taste can be, and with the iStraw there's no aftertaste. The company sent one for me to try out so I can attest that the water tastes great (well, as well as tap water can.)
iStraw is handy for personal use to help protect you from waterborne bacteria and protozoa that may be present in drinking water -- whether you're backpacking, camping, sightseeing,or just sipping cocktails in a foreign country. By filtering up to 500 litres of water, it will be some time before you have to change the cartridge.
£19.99 at iStraw and yes, they accept PayPal.
Don't leave home without it.
