About this product

The SteriPEN Sidewinder is designed to keep you safe from waterborne diseases, wherever you are in the world. It will purify one litre of water in just 90 seconds and requires no batteries for use.

This UV water purifier uses germicidal ultraviolet (UV) light to destroy 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and protozoa, including giardia and cryptosporidium. Use it with water taken straight from natural sources, such as rivers or streams, or with tap water in countries where there are known water purity problems.

The hand-powered crank system featured in the Sidewinder is eco-friendly and will save both batteries and plastic bottles from entering landfill. A one litre Tritan BPA-free bottle is included with the Sidewinder along with a SteriPEN Pre-Filter. This filter should be used prior to treatment if the water contains particulates.

Purification of water requires the handle to be rotated for 90 seconds (approximately 300 revolutions). A red LED will indicate whether the lamp is not sufficiently submerged or if the handle is being rotated too slowly. A green LED indicates when the water is safe to drink. This long-life storable water purifier will provide 8,000 treatments.
