The SteriPen Adventurer Opti is the smallest, lightest SteriPEN. The Adventurer Opti uses a revolutionary optical eye to sense the water. The patent-pending technology ensures safe use and provides purification in even the coldest of waters. The new optical sensor doubles as a convenient LED flashlight. It's a great backup light when camping or taking a night-time walk to refill your water bottle. The Flashlight mode is activated by pressing and holding the single button down for 3 seconds. The clear lamp cover focuses the LED light. The Adventurer Opti retail package includes 2 non-rechargeable (disposable) CR123 batteries and a neoprene case with belt loop. Device works with containers with minimum 1.75 in. diameter opening (ie Nalgene wide-mouth bottles).
The SteriPen adventurer water purifier is a super fast and convenient way to purify water from rivers and streams. We used it on a Himalayan trek in Bhutan where it proved itself, even with Yak in the area. Beats the heck out of those cumbersome "chemistry kit" water purifiers.
