SteriPEN Protector Opti is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fault or poorly made I purchased this unit from extremoutfitters and it finally arrived in to me here in Australia, however I opened up the unit, everything looked good until I noticed the tail battery cap was sitting very crooked, I thought it was just loose or something so I installed the battery, tightened the unit so its only snug as the instructions say but the tail cap still sat extremely crooked to the extent in which the rubber waterproofing seal is no longer in contact with the tail cap on the top section of the unit, this makes the battery compartment susceptible to water and moisture, for a device thats meant to meet military standards and made in the USA, it sure is quite a failure, I have contacted extremeoutfitters about this, but im not sure if the issue will be fixed by a replacement tail cap or if its a flaw with the internals of the unit, I do hope Steripen can help me with this issue aswel

As another person has asked, what warrants the extra cost for this model? Is it more durable? Will batteries last longer? Will it kill more stuff? Will the lamp last longer? Will the UV rays prevent ISIS from reproducing? But seriously. What's different?

When are more of the Protector model going to become available? I need to purchase at least 3 of these, but I've only found 1 as being verified to be "In Stock" at a US based retail shop.

Here is an on-line sources you can try: http://www.extremeoutfitters.us/steripenprotectoropti.aspx and of course, the Adventurer Opti is the exact same pen with a different color configuration. The major difference between them, besides the color, is that the AO is manufactured in China, hence the lower price. ~ David

Is there a comparison chart that shows the max volume of liquid each pen is effective in and the time to sterilize?

Asked by: chrisa
Most SteriPEN models treat 1/2 liter of water in 48 seconds and a full liter of water in 90 seconds. The only exception is SteriPEN Freedom which is designed for 1/2 liter treatments. It too treats a half liter in 48 seconds. If treating a full liter we recommend running two cycles.

I am still confused. Why this military grade SteriPen is more expensive? What is in this model which differentiates it from others? Thanks!

Unlike other SteriPen models, does this model destroys the virii, bacteria, etc. (as against sterilizing them)? Does it have anything in addition to a UV lamp to make it happen?

Asked by: Kaarigar
All SteriPEN models are effective against over 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and protozoa (like Giardia and Cryptosporidium). The UV light damages the DNA of the microorganisms rendering them harmless. You can learn what UV light destroys here: www.steripen.com/glossary.

Will the pen sterilize a 5 gallon bucket of water?

Asked by: Bonhomme
SteriPEN is certified effective in destroying over 99.9% of microorganisms in up to a liter of water (33 ounces). For larger quantities, we recommend treating a liter at a time in and pouring that water into the larger container.
