    Saw a link for this on a gadget website and thought it was cool. It might be good for people who travel to the more remote areas or those that are super paranoid about getting sick from the water.

    The UV light things would probably be much more effective at impressing your friends and as conversation starters than the tablets, I would think.

    If UV light really kills all germs (even the smallest ones), does that mean that if I put a UV light in my bedroom that there's no longer a need to shower? :lol:

    I think those tablets are just iodine tablets. Backpackers have been using iodine tablets to purify water for years. But iodine makes the water taste horrible! You pretty much have to mask the iodine flavor by making tea or kool aid of something with that water, it's that bad.

    I've used portable filters with some success. But most of my backpacking has been high in the mountains and I usually would end up just drinking from a running stream and not worrying about it.
