Amazon is offering the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter for $12.97 Prime shipped. Down from its $17 going rate, today’s deal comes within $3 of the 2020 low and is the best available. A single LifeStraw can filter up to 1,000-gallons (or 4,000-liters) of contaminated water without the use of iodine, chlorine, or other chemicals. It removes a “minimum 99.9999% of waterborn bacteria” and “99.9% of waterborn protozoan parasites”, filtering “to 0.2 microns.” Weighing just 2-ounces, this is super simple and easy to keep in your backpack or go-bag so you ensure that there’s always fresh water to drink. Rated 4.8/5 stars from tens of thousands of happy customers, and is a #1 best-seller at Amazon.
As an alternative to LifeStraw, you could opt for two 50-count bottles of Potable Aqua Water Purification Tablets With PA Plus. This is a tablet that you just put into water before drinking and it works on taking all of the contaminates out. While it’ll only last for 50 drinks, instead of 1,000-gallons, it does come in at $10 on Amazon, making it a more budget-focused solution.
