Easy and EffectiveUsed these in river water scooped straight from the source while on a walking safari in South Africa. Don't taste too bad and I never got sick, so I'm plenty satisfied with their effectiveness.

Basic chlorine tabsStrong chlorine smell and taste that definitely fades after a while. Light and compact. Recommended.

Served its purpose and no beaver fever.I guess I can't say for sure whether these tablets eliminated all of the dangers in drinking dirty lake water after running through a filter, but I can say that nobody got sick and there were definitely beavers in the lake. Using a filter/tablet combo enabled us to go pretty deep into the back country with no more than a Powerade bottle and a 2-liter hydration bladder. Didn't find these to have a chemical taste like I've always heard, if treated water tastes bad to you, you aren't working up enough of a thirst. I've boiled in the past and it was nice to just be able to treat what we pumped, wait a bit, and drink cold, clean water without a huge fuss.
