Finding unique but useful holiday gifts can be a challenge. Introducing the LARQ self cleaning, water purification bottle. I got us each one for the holidays.
I hate using single-use plastic bottles, even though I frequently do so. And I hate re-using a plastic water bottle because I worry about germs when they start to smell. (Did I have a cold the last time I drank out of this water bottle on the elliptical?)
So when I found out about the LARQ bottle, I was intrigued. It’s the world’s first first portable water purification system. You charge the bottle top. The charge lasts for a month. The top has a UV-C LED that automatically comes on every two hours to purify the water in the insulated bottle–no more worrying about germs and water impurities. The top is water-proof. I had only recently learned that UV light is a very effective way to kill bacteria and viruses. This technology (UV light) is frequently used to purify well water.
The UV-C LED chips in LARQ are smaller, more energy efficient, non-toxic (mercury free), and more economical compared to traditional Mercury based UV technology. Eradicates up to 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses in higher power Adventure Mode–LARQ website
I’ve been using my LARQ since the end of 2019 and love it. It’s solid, feels like a well-made thermos, and well insulated insulated. And for me, the best part is that I am using fewer single-use plastic bottles and feel more confident that the water I drink is germ-free.
