Some time back I got this baby called LifeStraw. Now allow me to tell you how it was for me to use one. LifeStraw is a hand-held water purification system that gives you 99.999% purified water. It removes waterborne bacteria from any water body say a river, lake, puddle; literally any water body. This award winning device was designed with a philanthropic ideology that aimed at providing clean water in severe conditions in Africa. With a LifeStraw, you can just fill the water from any waterbody and drink right out of it. If you travel a lot, then investing in a LifeStraw will be the best thing ever.
This refillable bottle has a 2 stage filtration with an incorporated carbon capsule. This award winning technology reduces chlorine, foul taste, even odor for about 100 liters of water if used on a go continuously. To test this bottle, I carried it with me on a recent trip.
LifeStraw came out strong as a winner of course. Firstly, this brilliant technology in a bottle is highly convenient. It hangs well on my bag pack. I didn’t have to worry about looking for clean water for that day. Which was pretty amazing. As I began, I was apprehensive about the purification so I would fill the bottle from a running water body only. The LifeStraw, of course, did a great job of purification. You have to try a little harder to sip water through the bottle, some might find that task exhausting. But again, it purifies water from any source, so one can put some efforts in sipping through.
Further, ahead I tried to test the bottle in muddy puddles, lakes and the water was clear as crystal, tasted like heaven. I was able to simply fill my bottle and drink clean water. The bottle is about 9 inches and holds up to 650 Ml of water. As compared to any other purifying technology economically this device is a great investment. You can reuse it. I think the utility of this product goes much beyond its usage in resource scarce regions. One can very much depend on this product in their day to day life. I carry it along to work everyday, especially when I am shooting outdoors.
So I would review it as a win especially because in a country where resources are scares, especially when traveling to remote areas or bag packing across mountains this bottle will come in handy. I am in love with the simplicity and ease at which this product provides clean purified water for consumption. Pretty basic, isn’t it? So this is where you can get one for yourself.
