Does the job well
Having had a bad experience with the Steripen Classic (was unable to get it to work with any batteries, so returned the unit), i decided to give this more recent model a try.
So far it seems to do the job well, I've not taken this on an actual trip yet, but have tried it about 5 times, with different size bottles.
The tapered end means it can easily be applied to most small type openings (like pet bottles, or even foldable water bottles and bladders).
In combination with the pre-filter and adapter, it also works great in combination with wider mouth bottles like the CamelBak Chute.
It is slightly on the heavy side, if compared to some other Steripen models. And the internal battery is not user serviceable, meaning you have to send it in to be replaced when it wears out.
Yet the internal battery seems reliable, and the unit hasn't failed yet, where the Classic seems to be quite error prone.
- Easy handling
- Runs smoothly
