Product RatingThe SteriPEN Defender is the toughest of all SteriPEN Models. It is actually made to US Military specifications and it shows. This is a much more rugged unit than other SteriPENs and only about $40 to $70 more (depending on the comparison). I own both a Classic and now the Defender and there is no comparison, the Defender is much better. If you want 100% reliability and durability, the SteriPEN Defender is the only UV portable purifier to buy - I have nothing negative to report on this product!
