Camelback Discontinued The All Clear December 2015
For a UV purification method, the CamelBak All Clear is unique in that it treats water directly in your bottle and takes a tiny bit less time than a SteriPEN. It has an advantage over pump filters in that it treats for viruses, but like other UV methods, it does not strain out particulate or treat water on the threads of the bottle. Compared to both SteriPEN models in this review, the whole system is heavier but it is a plus that it can be recharged through a mini USB cable or a solar charger. The downside is that the lamp and battery are non-serviceable and non-replaceable, so once it maxes out (after 10,000 cycles), you need to get another one. This is a handy and safe treatment method for a single person on a day-hike, but it would be difficult to treat large quantities of water at camp.
