Steripen that you crank to power.

If you have $100 that isn't doing anything productive it might be a good deal. 

I still use iodine/vitamin C tablets.

Unless there has been some major advancement in hand crank technology i would highly recommend against this one. I like the steripen, they can be quirky and have problems, but a hand crank one is a disaster waiting to happen i think. Just refer to the recent wind up flashlight thread...if they break anywhere near as often as those its a definite waste of money.
