Steripen Journey LCD
The mere mention of ultraviolet (UV) light in any conversation follows with how horrible it is for your skin. Overexposure to UV light can cause serious damage to your skin. Though, UV light has many benefits including its use in the SteriPEN Journey LCD.

SteriPEN, headquartered in the Maine coastal town of Blue Hill, was granted its first patent in 1999 and sold its first water purifying device the same year. Amongst its products is the SteriPEN Journey LCD which has been decorated with several awards including the Best Travel Gadget in 2009 by Travel + Leisure magazine.

The SteriPEN Journey LCD uses the same technology that bottling plants and municipalities use to purify water – UV light. SteriPEN boasts the Journey LCD can purify up to 2,000 gallons of water until its UV light conks out.

The Journey LCD is simple to operate.

  • Turn it on
  • Choose the correct settings on the LCD
  • Place the lamp in untreated water
  • Stir until purification is finished.

After the Journey LCD is inserted into untreated water, the purification process takes no longer than 90 seconds.

The major advantage that the SteriPEN Journey LCD has is how quickly it purifies water. Competing water purifiers make you wait up to 4 hours after treating water to ensure that it is free of microbes, pathogens, germs, etc. There is no such wait with the Journey LCD.
