Absolute Micron Filtering Technology Makes The Difference

"U" shaped micro-tubes allow water to enter into their core
The proprietary element of Sawyer’s water filters is comprised of tiny "U" shaped micro-tubes that allow water to enter into their core through tiny micro-pores. The high number of those tiny tubes and their surface area allows the filter to have one of the fastest flow rates in the world. This high flow rate eliminates the need to store water, reducing the possibility of water contamination after the filtration process.
Each filter is certified for absolute microns; that means there is no pore size larger than 0.1 in size. This makes it nearly impossible for harmful bacteria, protozoa, or cysts like E. coli, Giardia, Vibrio cholerae and Salmonella typhi (which cause Cholera and Typhoid) to pass through the Sawyer Mini filter. Sawyer filters have been tested by independent and qualified research laboratories and found to remove 7 log (99.99999%) of bacteria and 6 log (99.9999%) of protozoa, exceeding US EPA standards. The filter does not remove chemicals, dissolved solids, or viruses. However, viruses are very rarely found in North America or when traveling to foreign cities.
Sawyer's revolutionary filter technology is in use by hundreds of groups, including non-profit organizations, relief agencies, and governments in more than 70 countries around the world.

Imagine this-- freshly foraged chicken of the woods filets, pan cooked over an open fire courtesy of the BioLite CampStove, served with a side of wilted dandelion greens, and aromatic rosemary sprinkled atop warm, buttery rice. If your mouth is watering with anticipation and dreams of recreating such an idyllic, delicious scenario, you're in luck because the CampStove can make your gourmet camp food dreams a reality. Thanks to such an innovative stove, long gone are the days when your vittles were restricted to watery mac'n'cheese, peanut butter sandwiches, and questionable dehydrated food. The CampStove doesn't just provide savory meals--it's a stove, electrical power, and heat source all rolled into one. This convenient, self-sustaining stove is about the size of a 32 oz, BPA free water bottle, emanates smokeless flames, and its' advantageous powerpack easily nests within the heat mesh stove (just make sure the stove has cooled down before nesting). In place of cumbersome, excessive, and rather expensive fuel canisters, this easy-to-use stove only desires to be fueled with scrounged up twigs, pinecones, or any other flammable biomass that you discover whilst travelling. So you can forget about those eyebrow-raising fuel receipts and spend your money more wisely elsewhere, like on additional delicious frothy beverages or s'mores supplies. One of the most appealing aspects of the CampStove is its intuitive recycling of energy. While your chicken of the woods simmers in a sea of butter, your phone charges in 20 minutes time, providing an additional 60 minutes of talk time to the pre-existing battery life. However, in order to harness the electricity that's required to charge your phone, lights, or squirrel-sized jet pack, the BioLite's patented core technology captures otherwise wasted fire-heat through a heat probe attached to the brightly colored, orange powerpack. The powerpack then converts the heat into usable electricity via a thermoelectric generator. This truly is an innovative product.
