SteriPEN Classic 3 UV Water Purifier
Destroys bacteria, viruses and protozoa, uses AA batteries

The SteriPEN Classic 3 UV Water Purifier purifies water using Ultraviolet (UV) light. Whether your source is a clear running brook or a hotel tap, the SteriPEN Classic 3 destroys viruses, bacteria and protozoa, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium, in seconds.

While the SteriPen Classic 3 is a bit larger than the SteriPen Journey LCD UV Water Purifier, it runs on AA batteries. The Journey LCD UV Purifier comes with built-in rechargeable batteries which you recharge by plugging the USB cable into a laptop or other device that can recharge mobile phones, tablets, etc. Because the SteriPen Classic 3 uses AA batteries (alkaline, lithium or rechargeables) it can be better for emergencies or disasters where you may have no power. And it is good for extended trips to wilderness areas or countries where you may not be able to charge the Journey via USB cable.

Trusted on mountains and trails for over 15 years, the SteriPEN Classic 3 UV Water Purifier is the best-selling portable UV purifier of all time. Since 1999, hundreds of thousands of people have ensured their drinking water is safe and avoided ruined adventures with SteriPEN Classic 3.

The SteriPen Classic 3 operates on four AA batteries batteries. With one set of alkaline batteries, the SteriPen Classic 3 purifies up to 50 liters of water. Or supercharge your Classic 3 Purifier with lithium batteries and treat up to 150 liters. With a lamp life of up to 8,000 liters, you’ll be drinking safe water for over 7 years!

The SteriPen Classic 3’s enhanced LED indicator panel lets you know treatment size and status of the batteries and the UV lamp. The Classic 3 is sleek and ergonomic with an easy-to-remove twist-off lamp cover.

Like all SteriPEN UV water purifiers, the Classic 3 is simple to use: remove the lamp cover, press the activation button, submerge in water and stir. In 48 seconds you have ½ liter of safe drinking water, or purify a full liter in 90 seconds. Compared to standard chemical treatments that can take up to four hours, that’s safe water fast without adding chemicals that can leave an unpleasant aftertaste.

The 40×40 micron screen Pre-Filter fits perfectly on wide-mouth one liter water bottles (like the 1 quart/liter Nalgene Guaranteed Leakproof BPA-Free Wide Mouth water bottles that we sell). The pre-filter removes particulates that can get in the way of UV light in water. The Pre-Filter is designed to be stored directly on a wide mouth bottle and the SteriPEN Classic 3 fits perfectly in the filter.

Just insert Classic 3 in the filter opening, turn the bottle upside down, and gently rock to circulate light throughout bottle. The tapered end also fits snugly in plastic water bottles. Just insert the lamp into the water bottle, turn it upside down and gently rock the bottle.

Can be powered by alkaline, lithium, or NiMH batteries.
So easy … just activate, place in water, and stir. LED indicators flash to let you know when water is safe to drink.
