In this HD video Survival Bros tests the SteriPEN Sidewinder UV Water Purification System. ¬†It’s hand powered, meaning it’s battery-free. ¬†I think it’s light-weight at 16.6 ounces, and compact enough to fit in a backpack with a height of 8.6 inches. ¬†The Sidewinder is perfect for camping, and emergency preparedness. ¬†Their moto is “safe drinking water anywhere.” ¬†That’s a noble mission, and one we can all appreciate.

Imagine knowing a hurricane is about to devastate your area, and seeing this on your shelf. ¬†I can’t picture a prep that would bring more peace of mind than the SteriPEN Sidewinder. ¬†This tool disinfects 8,000 liters of water that could be contaminated with bacteria, protozoa, and viruses. ¬†Those potentially harmful risks are getting eliminated thanks to the powerful UV lamp. ¬†Even a kid could operate this purifier. ¬†All you have to do is fill it, flip it, crank it, and drink it. ¬†In 90 seconds you have water you don’t have to worry about. ¬†Survival Bros is also grateful that the bottle is BPA-free, so you won’t be drinking chemicals that way. ¬†In the box you get the 1L container, water-tight bottle lid, and Pre-Filter for particulate removal.

The SterPEN Sidewinder is one of those products a prepper really needs. ¬†It’s a good backup to have, in case your regular water source is compromised, or you’re just off the grid. ¬†I have no complaints with this system. ¬†It feels well made, it works, and will continue to keep me safe for many years. ¬†They even offer a 3 year warranty. ¬†Plus, they are an American company. ¬†Check out their full line of gear at http://www.steripen.com ¬†There’s an ultraviolet light solution right for you. ¬†I’m sure you’ll see us testing more SteriPEN products in the future. ¬†We approve 100%!

You’re off the grid, but you need power. That’s when you wish you invested in a solar panel charger, like the Solarmonkey¬†from Powertraveller that I tested in the HD video above.

If I’m alone in the woods, it’s nice to know my cell phone has power just in case. That’s why the Solarmonkey¬†Adventurer comes with. If I fall off a cliff, having my iPhone¬†handy sure beats a whistle. Powertraveller¬†has created a huge variety of solar chargers,¬†excellent for any job. From small ones that can give your¬†phone¬†a boost, to large solar panels that can keep your laptop running. I like the Solarmonkey Adventurer¬†because it’s a great size for backpacking, and mountain biking.

The powerful internal lithium polymer battery is 2500mAh, and will charge fully in 12 hours or less. Plus, you can charge the battery, and a device at the same time, saving time.  And it can plug into a wall, or DC outlet.  I was shocked at how fast it charges my phone. The system is lightweight too, tipping the scales at only 9.3 ounces.  The dimensions are 6.6 x 3.7 x 0.8 inches.

It comes with many tips to be compatible for your device, and a heavy-duty “Monkeytail” cable made just for Apple products. The neoprene case it comes in is durable also. It will keep the solar panels safe, and secure. A carabiner is included. I use that often so it can just hang off my bag. As I mentioned in the video review, the¬†panels are shock and water-resistant. It outlasted me pouring water on it while charging, and surprisingly worked after I froze it. The Solarmonkey¬†Adventurer from Powertraveller is badass. I can easily recommend it¬†to my friends.¬† Thanks for visiting Survival Bros.¬† Come back soon.solarmonkey-adventurer-5
