SteriPEN water purifier

No need to stress about whether the water is safe to drink, or contribute to pollution by buying cases of bottled water. The SteriPEN Classic 3 water filter uses ultraviolet light produced by its wandlike pen, which can purify 99.9% of the organisms that might cause sickness. It seems like a magic wand, but it really does work, as certified by travel doctors and hard-core hikers who swear by it. It’s small, lightweight, can purify 12 gallons of water on a four AA battery charge, and its lamp is good for 8,000 treatments. $70
