Took Steripen to Kenya. No problems with water on the trip. I was able to charge with electricity. However, I will be ordering the solar charger that is available for when in remote areas. Steripen doubles as a flashlight, although I wouldnt rely on it to save you from lions, tigers, and bears...Oh My!
I got the steripen freedom when it first came out. I was planing a trip to the Grand Canyon and was looking to get some thing different. Before the trip I tested it and got 48 uses from one charge and 53 when I tested it again. So far I have used 3 or 4 times in the back country and have been pleased. It super light to witch is a plus.
