The WAKEcup Ultra Violet Light (UV) Water bottle, gives you pure drinking water peace of mind.
Innovative UV-C technology in the lid cleans the inner surfaces of the bottle by eliminating bacteria, viruses and mould. Activate the UV by a click of the button and after just 3 minutes the bottle will be clean...Leaving no germs, odour or taste!
Suitable for everyday use, the UV bottle is also great for camping and for when you don't know about the quality of water you could be drinking. Our double walled UV bottle holds 550ml of hot or cold liquid, keeping water cold for 12 hours and hot for 4.
The UV bottle comes in luxurious matte black stainless steel, with an Ultra Violet WAKEcup logo and is the perfect gift for anyone with health anxiety around the food and drink they consume.
The USB rechargeable Lithium battery gives you self-cleaning power for up to a month on a full charge. Waterproof MicroUSB connector included with the bottle.
Laboratory test results confirm that over 99.99% of bacteria, virus and fungal spores were killed when exposed to 3 minutes of UV-C light. Test organisms included: Staphylococcus Aureus, Escherichia Coli and Candida Albicans.
UV light is widely used by the NHS, US and EU healthcare providers to sterilise patient rooms and other surfaces.
Dr David Weber says "UV Light has been demonstrated to be a safe and effective method to disinfect water. UV is environmentally friendly, leaves no residuals and kills germs."

Love this bottle, I saw many other options out there but all way more expensive. I came across wakecup shortly after searching for something a bit cheaper and it does not disappoint. I am very impressed with how well it cleans up my tap water. We have very hard water at my house and I've previously used Brita filters to clean it but it never worked fully and left a metallic taste to the water. So I ended up buying water every week or 2 as I went through a lot. After finding out about the UV cleaning solution I just had to try it as I was wasting a lot of plastic and knew I needed to stop. When I finally got it I tested it straight away, now the quick clean did work but not as well as I hoping but not to give up so easily I tried then using the longer 5 minute clean and to my surprise it does the job well. I can now drink my tap water without it tasting absolutely awful. It cleans up the water very well and hardly any bits left after they've been vaporised by the UV light. Had the bottle almost a month and have still only done the initial charge on it so battery life is great. I would highly recommend people buy this not only to help the planet but to give you a much safer way to drink water, I even found out bottled water has stuff in it you don't want!
seems a very well made sturdy item, yet light weight.
looks to be designed as a flask, double walled design.
although having any tea or coffee, would surely prevent the uv-c light from doing its job
Really well made. The bottle itself feels premium and reassuringly solid and the rubber handle that it will last for ages.
