SteriPEN Defender is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use...love this device I was a die hard PUR Hiker water purifier user until I went on a recent 3 day packing trip with a buddy who was using a Steripen. I was skeptical at first, but when we stopped for water fills, he was always finished before me and did not have to deal with pumping or keeping the tubing in just the right spot to avoid pumping up a bunch of sediment. Plus it was much lighter in his pack. After trying his, I was a convert. I've only been on one trip since, but I am a convert. Thank-you Streipen for developing such a great product. The pre-filter is not needed if your'e careful, but I don't like floaties, so I don't mind the extra step of using this for extra clean water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best method for water treatment I have found. I purchased the Steripen Defender just prior to my fall fishing trip and had the opportunity to use it for a full week. The main reason I switched from the traditional hand pump filtration method was I found the units required frequent cleaning, always leaked and tend to loose efficiency quickly. Filter replacement costs were also ridiculous. On the trip I used a funnel with filter material (I used a paper towel instead of a coffee filter since water did not have too much sediment) to remove the "chunks". The Steripen was easy to use and battery power was sufficient for the entire week, handling all water needs for two people who drink a lot of water. Since my trip I have suggested to my camping friends and relatives to check out this product as an alternative to the traditional water treatment methods.

Hello, I am searching for your military products in Germany. But I didnt find a shop where I could buy a defender or protector... Can you tell me where to get them here at best near Frankfurt ? Thanks in advance..

Asked by: DaWotan
There are a couple of web sites that operate out of the US that deal with the military pens. http://www.extremeoutfitters.us/purifier.aspx does have international mailing service available. In Germany, there are several retailers that carry SteriPEN products, but do not list the military models on their web sites. They do, however, have the Classic and/or the Adventurer Opti, which for all intents and purposes, are the same as their military equivalents, the Defender and Protector, respectively. The only difference between them is the color of their plastic components, where they are assembled and the price. http://www.bigtree.de/ausruestung/?keywords=steripen http://www.scoutbox.de/start_14/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=steripen&XTCsid=i4usidnvlb0sktdche5fbemok6 and https://www.globetrotter.de/marken/steripen ~ David

How much water (what size container) can steri pen purify at 1 time? 

Asked by: Philstritz
Most models allow you to choose to purify a half liter or a full liter at a time. A half liter will be treated in 48 seconds and a full liter will be treated in 90 seconds.
