Great 1st attempt - Improvements needed

The device is simple enough to use, and is great for what I needed it for. Yes, it can purify only 750 mL at a time, but in comparison to other UV purifiers out there, they typically only go up to 1-liter per treatment anyway, and I like the slightly smaller 750 mL bottle for traveling with.

My one big complaint about the All Clear is that there is no way to lock out the power (on/off) button on the UV cap. The power button is very easy to unintentionally activate when the UV cap is in its travel case, especially when it's being packed and transported with other gear in a backpack.

The travel case for the UV cap is a soft, thin, neoprene-like case. It holds the UV cap and the USB charging cable for the battery. The power button on the UV cap sits right on top of the cap and is very easy to unintentionally activate through the soft travel case. Anything pressing against it can turn it on.

The first concern is that the batteries can be prematurely drained without you even being aware of it, and therefore the device might not be usable when it's needed (I'm not always going to be near a USB port for charging it).

The second concern is that these repeated unintentional activations will count against the 10,000-cycle life of the device. The UV cap is programmed to stop working after 10,000 cycles. I realize that's a large number, but how many times did it activate inside my backpack without me being aware of it?

The third concern is with the heat that's given off when the UV lamp is on. It does get warm, and that heat is now trapped inside the closed travel case inside my pack, surrounded by other gear.

The batteries in the UV cap are not removable and not even accessible, and there's no way to lock out the power button from unintentional activations. If you press it, the UV lamp goes on for its 1-minute treatment, whether you want it to or not. This problem should really be addressed in order to make the All Clear a much more travel-friendly water treatment option. Outside of that, I still prefer it over the pen-style UV purifiers.

Very Simple to Use

I have not yet taken this into the woods however that isn't really needed for this review.

I have a SteriPen which is essentially the same concept as this but with more moving parts to deal with. UV sterilization is proven technology, so what any decision on this item really comes down too is, "Is the convenience worth the price/ weight?"

The answer is "Yes"! Couldn't be simpler to use.... fill with water, screw on cap, push button, swirl it around, and it tells you it is finished. No batteries to replace (Rechargable) and when it has reached its end of life it simply stops so there is no chance of thinking it did it's job when it didn't. Probably pretty close in weight to the Steripen bottle and pen combined except it is in a single piece.

Only real con is that it is top heavy. No so much that it easily tips over.... really only an issue when empty. If there was more weight to the bottle it would be more stable but then you would be carrying more unneccessary weight.

Would give it 4 1/2 stars if possible.

I got it on sale, but after using it would have paid full price. Good item for those with a 20% off coupon burning in their pocket.
High Desert Hiker at REI on 09/09/2013

Happy so far

I picked it over the Steripen as it appeared more durable and easier to use. I paired it with the 96oz Nalgene "Cantene" though I so far have kept the bottle around that it came with in case I am out solo (rare).

Contrary to other reviewers, as an engineer I am unconcerned about not using the supplied bottle. If you understand the way the UV system works, it's going to work if properly applied to the water no matter the container.

With the large Nalgene Cantene, I go four 60 seconds rounds of UV treatment while sloshing back and forth every few seconds (just rotate across my knee). I wish it had a custom time setting so I did't have to push the button 4 times, but oh well.

Just returned from a pack trip with 3 other folk and I treated around 30 liters of water with the battery near half depleted.

Would likely give 5 stars if it had replaceable battery.

Meh

The case is frustrating- the zipper broke and was constantly stuck. I'm not terrible with zippers, this is just a terrible zipper.
The main con is the wet lip of the bottle. There are ways around it; of course one being the accessory camelbak makes.
(OR, MAN UP and slurp from the Earth like a Puma!!)

For how small the bottle is, you are using it a lot. And dropping the UV top or the lid in dirt is a struggle getting the threads clean- minor but annoying.
I feel like I want to dislike it because of the case, but it works, and is a favorable size for bappakin'.
Cool thing is, when I got it home I realized it fit almost all of my other bottles. Even the larger ones, *just have to zap it twice I guess.

I do like the system. And it's cool at night, (drinking the electric cool-aid) or sumpin'... future water idk.

AT Tested

I wouldn't worry about the bottle breaking.... The best feature of the All Clear is it's convenience; it treats a 750 ml bottle in 60 seconds, is highly effective, and doesn't alter taste. The battery will last up to a couple weeks (or more) on the trail - and it is internal, so you don't need to spend money on replacements. I used this for 5 months on the AT and did not have a single issue with the All Clear or water related illness. It may be a little heavier or bulkier than chemicals or a pen, but in my opinion its worth it. What can I complain about- not much, I had to buy a USB to wall adapter in order to charge it from wall outlets, and it takes awhile to charge, but I think that is a testament to the battery strength. Oh, and it looks cool at night. Very happy with this product.

Which bottle?

There is a slight wrinkle regarding the special bottle that comes with the All Clear. The directions (safety) state that the UV cap should be used exclusively with the .75-L Camelbak Better Bottle, which implies that any Camelbak Better bottle can be employed. When I spoke to Camelbak directly they said that the unit should only be used with the bottle it came with, since that's the only one they actually tested. I pointed out the discrepancy between what the company says and what the directions state and was told that they would look into a rewording of those instructions. Just be aware that although the UV cap fits quite nicely onto a regular .75-L Better Bottle, it should only be used with its own proprietary All Clear bottle. Unfortunately that proprietary bottle cannot be purchased separately. If you break it, you'll have to contact Camelbak for a special replacement bottle.
robosolo at REI on 03/03/2012

Well, this thing has served me well since I got it in December. I've been in places that are renowned for their disgusting water since then, including Kashmir, Delhi, Kathmandu, and a few cities in China, and not once have I gotten sick. Plus I have the added bonus of using it in public, at which point people say, "Wow, what is that?" and "Does it really work?" and "Whoa Mitch, thanks to this Camelbak product, you are so much cooler and up to date than us". Well, not that last bit as often.
The point is, the battery lasts ages, the thing actually WORKS, the light is pretty when you stare at it, and it's easy to carry, which helps when you have a lot of miles under your belt and many more yet to go. It's so good that I'm writing my first Backcountry review in honor of it.

A simple and easy to use water purifier!

I used it on a hiking trip, and the wide mouth made it easy to fill water from the creek, but if I wanted to drink from it after I purified the water, the wide mouth was difficult. There's no lid with a nozzle, just a cap and the purifying UV light.
The was the only problem, it's an awesome purifier and I plan on using it for years to come, I used it multiple times filling our campsite water supply from the local creek. The other campers were skeptical until I drank a substantial amount of water from the creek.

I will admit I have not used any other water purifiers but the Camelbak Allclear really assured me that I can go out of civilization with my Allclear and not need bottled waters which are inconvenient for hiking.

Comments about CamelBak All Clear Water Purifier Bottle: I've used the All Clear on several trips, and have found it to be good for my purposes as a backpacker / overnighter. I also bought the attached filter. Pros: Battery stays charged for a long time Rechargeable via USB (my Solio Bolt) Kills bacteria AND viruses .75L per 60 seconds Cons: Filter is an ad-on Filter freezes in cold water Impossible to keep possibly "contaminated" water from the lip of the container A bit on the heavy side My Workflow (in cold temps) 1. Scoop up water in a "dirty" container 2. Pour it into All Clear through filter 3. Process water 4. Remove filter 5. Wipe off threads 6. Pour water into another container (Reservoir, etc.) Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Speedy UV Treatment

I've used the All Clear on several trips, and have found it to be good for my purposes as a backpacker / overnighter. I also bought the attached filter.

Pros:

Rechargeable via USB (my Solio Bolt)
Kills bacteria AND viruses
.75L per 60 seconds

Cons:
Filter is an ad-on
Filter freezes in cold water
Impossible to keep possibly "contaminated" water from the lip of the container
A bit on the heavy side

My Workflow (in cold temps)
1. Scoop up water in a "dirty" container
2. Pour it into All Clear through filter
3. Process water
4. Remove filter
5. Wipe off threads
6. Pour water into another container (Reservoir, etc.)

Negative Reviews:

Just don't drop this big @$# bottle!

Major problem = Prone to damage.

I'm looking at my collection of various water bottles and the first thing I notice is that they all have scratches, dings, dents, or other damage from being dropped over the years. Water bottles are constantly being pulled out and put away which makes them more prone to being dropped and damaged.

Furthermore, which such an awkward heavy cap on the bottle, this things likely to take a few extra falls.

Finally, this thing is over a pound! Other UV systems are way lighter and more versitile since you aren't restricted to Camelbacks bottle.

I like most of the stuff Camelback makes, and UV is a solid treatment for viruses and other bugs, but this just isn't a good idea. I'll stick with my Hiker and Micropur = great taste, no worries, low tech and extremely durable (12 years old).

Camelbak light filter will not turn on

Bought it two weeks ago and it will not turn on after briefly amazing me. However, I hear it has a robust warranty that I will try this weekend. I mostly use this at my office in a very old building believe it or not and thought it was worth the high purchase price till it stopped working three days ago.
