Because I like to go on walkabouts from time to time, which often means an unplanned, unresearched trip that could land me anywhere in the world, one of the top, always-pack items I take is some kind of water filtration gadget. My go-to for a long time has been the LifeStraw 22 oz, BPA-free filtration bottle. I love it. Easy to use and works great.
But I’m always keeping my eye out for what’s coming down the pike with water filtration. It’s a significant interest of mine.
The latest that caught my eye for personal travel is an innovative UV-C CrazyCap 2 Pro insulated bottle that outputs 99.9996%.purified water. It’s good for hot and cold and holds 17 oz. Sometimes compact is better.
But the one I am most excited about because I think it can solve huge problems around the world is this portable filter-free technology that converts seawater to drinking water with the push of a button. And it only weighs about 20 lbs.
According to MIT, who created this, “the suitcase-sized device, which requires less power to operate than a cell phone charger, can also be driven by a small, portable solar panel, which can be purchased online for around $50. It automatically generates drinking water that exceeds World Health Organization quality standards. The technology is packaged into a user-friendly device that runs with the push of one button.” Check it out in the video below.
This could be a game-changer.
