User Review: SteriPEN Adventurer Opti
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $80
A good solution when water filtration isn't necessary. Doesn't add/remove odor! Doesn't affect flavor!
- A little pricey
I have waited for these UV purifiers to be around for a while, and they are now reliable. I have had mine for a year, without fault for over a hundred uses.
A lot of people list battery cost as a con, however I beg to differ. The rechargeable model requires replacement once the lithium ion battery goes, where with this, you buy new and recycle the old. I have found the CR123 batteries to be very cheap online, and don't mind spending pocket change when it comes down to health and safety.
It takes a little time getting the system down, but once you do, no big deal. Several people have also complained about the 90 seconds to go through the cycle, but how fast can one refill their reservoirs and bottles anyway?
