Hydro-Photon, Inc. Introduces The SteriPEN JourneyLCD for 2008

Hydro-Photon, Inc., announces the SteriPEN JourneyLCD, featuring an LCD screen, making this the most user-friendly system available today.

Blue Hill, ME – Hydro-Photon, Inc., the leader in portable water purification systems, announces the SteriPEN JourneyLCD, the easiest to use portable water purifier on the market. The SteriPEN JourneyLCD uses SteriPEN's proven technology, ultraviolet (UV) light, to destroy the DNA of disease-causing bacteria, viruses and parasitic protozoa. What makes the NEW SteriPEN JourneyLCD different is its ability to communicate through an LCD screen, making this the most user-friendly system available today.

The SteriPEN JourneyLCD uses universal symbols that take the guesswork out of the process and provides the user with added confidence that the SteriPEN is being used properly. The LCD screen displays the user's dose selection (1/2 liter or 1 liter), battery status and time remaining countdown to completion (showing the progress of the water purification process). Weighing less than 6 ounces, the SteriPEN JourneyLCD will last for 10,000 treatments. In addition to the functions listed above, the SteriPEN JourneyLCD tracks the number of uses and the LCD screen illustrates the lamp life bar which blinks when the lamp usage approaches 10,000 cycles.

Like all SteriPEN products, the SteriPEN JourneyLCD is simple to use: Just push the button twice for ½ liter or once for a full liter, insert the device into a container of clear water -- and the SteriPEN goes to work! All you have to do is stir. It takes 48 seconds to purify ½ liter of water and 90 seconds for a 1-liter dose compared to standard chemical treatments that can take up to four hours. You get safe, drinking water in seconds -- no set up or clean up required. And because the SteriPEN uses light instead of chemicals to purify, water doesn't have an unpleasant chemical aftertaste.
