The Journey is easy to use: Just add water to your container, then place the Journey inside. The Journey’s LCD screen’s universal symbols will tell you how much water you’ve chosen to purify (1/2 or 1 liter), the battery status, and how much time is remaining until the process is complete and your water is safe to drink. The screen also tracks the filter usage and signals when the lamp is approaching its life limit. Steripen’s top-of-the-line outdoor purifier, the Journey offers up to 8,000 doses, allowing you to purify water for years to come. At 4 liters of water per day, the Journey will last almost six years. And like all SteriPen models, the Journey is fast, taking just 48 seconds to purify 16 ounces (on the 0.5 liter setting).
The Journey includes a tapered end that fits snugly in water bottles, and is also compatible with the Fits All Filter, which works even with wide-mouth water bottles. The Journey, which weighs just 4.5 ounces, ships with two non-rechargeable (disposable) CR123 batteries and a custom-fit neoprene pouch.
