I don't know if it's a gimmick, but why not just buy a bottle with a wide mouth that is easy to clean and save a bunch of money?

I wouldn't use this to drink dirty water... but I find that it keeps the water and the bottle from getting musty.

I have it.

I can tell you that the water inside stays fresh for longer. The science of uv sterilization is real, used in many medical and science settings too.

As for putting contaminated water... Don't. This water bottle does not have any filtration method.

Decent reviews online. Should be good for killing "living things" like germs and viruses, plus the caps could be occasionally used for sterilizing surfaces / electronics. Was debating and finally grabbed a set today Smiling Face With Open Mouth

You'd have to shine it at the surface for longer than a minute, most likely longer with this dinky thing. Plus you'd probably have to hold it literally RIGHT above the surface. Not sure how practical that would be.

Lots of reviews here:

https://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/ ... filter-bar


We had a hot tub with a UV light. It had a metal enclosure with a sodium-like light bulb in it. The hot tub would blow air through the enclosure and the air would go out in the water.

When the UV light stopped working, the Hot Tub got dirty very quickly (Grime stains started appearing at the water line level) and we had to use more bromide.

UV sterilisation at least isn't a gimmick. If you're living in a Canadian city, some cities in parts of the world don't have this luxury, the tap water is potable which makes this product a bit useless. Ideally a water bottle should be cleaned regularly, and water shouldn't remain in it for long periods of time. Will admit though that it sounds cool for when you're outside, and you have an available still clear water source. Then again, life straw exists, doesn't require batteries, and it's a filter.

Deep UV LED sterilizing light that destroys 99.999% of germs. <- their claim, not mine!
All you need to access safe drinking water anywhere in the world! Includes the latest CrazyCap and insulated water bottle so that water from any source is safe to drink in as little as 60 seconds!
Perfect for hiking, traveling, or a day at the office.
Advanced deep UV sterilization can even sterilize multiple surfaces such as a shared workspace, desk computer, mobile phone, and more.

I put it through the test...

After eating a rather large spicy burrito, I dunked it in the toilet, and activated the UV cap...

60 seconds later, fresh drinking water!

Nice to know if I'm ever stuck in a toilet stall, I have access to clean drinking water anytime! ;)

See above post... Just wash your bottle!

Honestly, unless you need it for the advertised usage, ie: hiking, why would the average person
living in civilization waste money on this, and not just get any other regular water bottle.

I think many of the commenters don't understand the point of this bottle. It's not a filter bottle - you put clean water in it for drinking. What it does is kill off bacteria in the bottle after you take a sip. You know your mouth isn't germ free, right? While you swallow and brush your teeth throughout the day to inhibit bacteria growth in your mouth, the bacteria in the water bottle grows in a pretty perfect environment (especially in a warm car in summer). Yes, you should clean your bottle, and if you finish your bottle in a few minutes everyday this is probably not useful for you, but if you like leaving your water bottle in your backpack or car for a day or so, this could be useful.

I cannot find what UV light it uses.
Is it UV-C?
How long will the battery last?
I cant really see how can this bottle be useful though.
Perhaps for people who share the bottle with other people?

I have the og version of this bottle (I forget the name but it was a kickstarter or something, with UV-C, this seems to just be a generic copy) Anyways I have found it to not be worth the hassle, here's a list of pros and cons. Battery was decent enough, probably lasted at a month.

Pro:
Less microbial growth in water
In a pinch could bu used to treat some clean but unpotable water

Cons:
Heavy
Low capacity
Not dishwasher safe (at least for the cap)
microusb charging (Seriously everything should have USB-C by this point!)

Last issue I won't actually put on the list but for whatever reason I actually found the water become more musty smelling out of these bottles. Honestly it sounds crazy but the company even sent me a replacement bottle and that still did not solve the issue so I really don't know what the hell I was doing wrong.

Yes Burnaby Willingdon had a stack of them... a few weeks ago.

I have tried this and the cap was defective like it wouldn't turn on.
