The SteriPEN Emergency is a compact, lightweight device that uses UV light to quickly kill harmful microbes, viruses and bacteria that may be present in water. The Emergency is specifically designed for home emergency and disaster preparation kits. The Emergency is designed to fit perfectly into commercial water bottles, forming a seal that lets you keep the water in the original bottle for purification. Just insert the Emergency securely into the mouth of the bottle, turn it upside down, and you have safe drinking water in less than a minute.
Affordable and efficient, the Emergency purifies 200 half-liter servings of water on just one set of AA lithium batteries, enough to provide your family 2 gallons of purified water per day for over 12 days.. It is effective against Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, Salmonella, Staph Strep, Botulism, Cholera Smallpox and Typhoid.
The Emergency uses 4 AA batteries. Lithium or Nickel Metal Hydride batteries are recommended, alkaline batteries are not recommended. The UV lamp is rated for 3000 treatments. Batteries are not included.
