The original LifeStraw is one of the most popular gadgets on this site. This gadget is literally a life saver. It is a straw with a built-in filter that allows you to drink from just about any water source. The filter removes almost all water borne bacteria and parasites making it safe to drink. In places where safe drinking water is not available, it has saved thousands of lives. The LifeStraw Universal Water Filter improves upon the original design. It fits into just about any water bottle turning it into a water bottle filter.
WIth the LifeStraw Universal Water Filter, having access to safe drinking water becomes a little more convenient. It is not huge innovation like the original LifeStraw was but it makes carrying around the LifeStraw and a water bottle easier by combining them into one. It comes with the same high quality microbiological filter that filters out 99.999999% of waterborne bacteria, and 99.999% of waterborne protozoan parasites. A single filter can filter up to 1000 gallons of water before it has to be replaced.
The big difference is that the filter now attaches to one of two bottle cap attachments that come with the kit. These two caps fit just about any water bottle brand that is available in the market right now. On top of that, it also comes with a leak proof cap that prevents any spills.
Besides the microbiological filter that filters out all the nasty stuff, it also has a replaceable activated carbon capsule that removes chemicals, chlorine, and improves taste.
The LifeStraw Universal Water Filter is simple to use and a boon to campers in remote locations. With it, you will never have to take the risk of drinking unfiltered water whether it comes from a lake, a stream, a bathroom tap or even a spigot at the side of the road.
