Whenever you travel to a different country, it is always wise to drink bottled water – as you can never quite tell just what kind of water quality the tap produces. Well, with the $99.95 Portable Water And Surface Sanitizer, you need not worry all that much any more, since this device relies on a similar kind of technology that is used to sanitize hospital instruments. Capable of eliminating up to 99.9% of germs from water or surfaces, it has been tested by an independent laboratory. Emitting UV-A and UV-C light which are capable of penetrating bacterial membranes, destroy their DNA, and kill harmful microorganisms like E. coli, Staphylococcus, and Salmonella, it does seem to be the ideal device for rapid, effective disinfection while traveling.
As for its performance capability, we are talking about sanitizing surfaces in just 10 seconds and purifying a couple of cups of water in 40 seconds when you insert the wand attachment into the liquid. The integrated LCD display will be able to count down the remaining time until the surface or water is sanitized, showing an “OK” signal when the process is complete. Powered by a quartet of AAA batteries, all travelers save for Bear Grylls ought to have one.
