2. Because of the 0.01um ultra filtration membrane cartridge, it is better filter the clean water than the cloudy water. Otherwise the cartridge is easy to be blocked.

I love doing outside activities, but I am not even close to being the camping expert. I had no idea something like this existed but I am glad I have one now.
This little gadget is a portable water filter, with this you can drink from dirty water and it will filter it and give you clean water as you drink. It's a straw, so you don't have to do much work or even wait to start drinking clean water. Though I would not be using this as my primary or only source, this is perfect for emergencies. It's light, not too big and comes with a hook so you can hook it up to your gear or clothes and keep it always by your side. There's different ways to use this, and it comes with instructions on the ideal way for your needs.
Works well. The Portable Water straw is a straw that filters water so that the dirty water can be drinkable. The straw is similar to other straws available but is priced less compared to others at the time I purchased this. The Water straw removes 99.9 % of Water Bourne protozoans / parasites and about 99.99% of bacteria from water. The device uses a hollow filter membrane filter to significantly reduce contaminants. The straw can filter about 1000 liters of contaminated water which makes this ideal for disaster relief or for donation to a person in need. There are no chemicals such as iodine or chlorine in this water straw which makes me believe that this straw is safe to use. The package comes with instructions and comes with 1 water straw.
All in all this is a Portable water straw if you're on the go or need it for emergency situations. I will say that I got this as a free sample in return for an honest review. However, even if I hadn't this is a great deal and well...
I had no idea about this product before. It came in a decently packed package.
Pros: - As other reviewers have pointed out, it could be life saving in certain conditions - The simplistic design makes it more usable. All you need is a source of water and you are good ! - No need for batteries - The blue color and design aspect of attaching it to your pant makes it more portable
Overall the concept is good. I personally don’t have any equipment to test whether all bacteria and virus are filtered out but in a worst case scenario, would rather have something like this rather than drinking unclean water.
I received this product for free for the purpose of my honest and unbiased review.
