A backpacker's bottle that purifies water and provides light

Bottlelight is a compact, one-litre bottle that functions as both a portable UV water purifier and a camping light. In just 60 seconds, UV LEDs eliminate 99.9% of bacteria in 1 litre of water. A 45° reflector at the bottom provides a simple and glare-free light source at night. It is easy to clean and the carabiner clasp can attach to almost anything. Constructed from durable, pressure formed aluminum parts and shatterproof glass, Bottlelight is designed to survive many adventures.
