1.ACTIVATED OXYGEN, O3, is also known as Ozone. Ozone is created naturally during a lightning storm. It's good when in the upper atmosphere but bad when it combines with pollution on the ground to create smog.
2.Activated oxygen will neutralize bad tastes, minerals, and other contaminants so that the water tastes delicious.
3.Activated oxygen, (aqueous ozone) very quickly, leaving slightly alkaline and oxygen enriched water. Aqueous ozone is APPROVED BY FDA, EPA, AND USDA for use in purifying water, processing food, the organic industry, medical, dental, and hotel industry.
4.OZONE IS NATURE’S DISINFECTANT. It is a powerful, and complete bactericide. Aqueous ozone kills in seconds, disease-causing contaminants such as e.coli, salmonella, giardia, norovirus, hepatitis, staph, strep, cholera, typhus and more. It also breaks down herbicides, pesticides, and pharmaceuticals.
5.AQUEOUS OZONE in the Roving Blue products is a breakthrough, patented technology, a unique process that is more effective than other disinfectants and exclusive to these products. No other device can do this.
6. USED BY MILITARY SPECIAL OPS PERSONNEL and tested extensively, Roving Blue is an important part of protecting our troops.
DELICIOUS WATER TO DRINK, PLUS WATER TO DISINFECT
Roving Blue O-Pen is a pen-sized lifeline.
All travelers want safe, delicious tasting water. The O-pen can get rid of bad tastes and destroy a huge number of pathogens, pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, and chlorine. Some of the pathogens killed by aqueous ozone created by Roving Blue products are norovirus, hepatitis, e.coli, salmonella, staph, strep, crypto, giardia, cholera, typhus, and more.
While filter systems, straws, and UV lights are all viable options, none of them can give you water that can disinfect. Filters can clog, lights can break, and they can both lose effectiveness without you realizing it. With the O-Pen, you can be certain it is working, because if it is bubbling, it is creating ozone!
One click and 30 seconds are all you need to purify 8 ounces of water and give you water to disinfect your environment Ozone remains for about 15 minutes, then becomes slightly alkaline oxygenated water. Bad tastes and odors are removed from water making taste as great as bottled water. 16 L of water can be purified on one charge, then recharge the batteries with USB port, included.
Consider the following scenarios
When we think of contaminated water, one of the first things we picture is a natural disaster such as a hurricane, flood, or earthquake where water systems are broken or in disrepair. This is indeed a very likely scenario, especially considering the hurricane season this year. Pure water can be hard to find. During natural disasters, the water can contain extremely high levels of pathogens and can cause severe infection if injuries are not treated when you have to wade through this kind of water very often.
Backpacking, hiking, or camping, especially in the wilderness is great fun and very popular. Although being forced into the wilderness due to Nuclear war, government collapse, or the “Zombie Apocalypse” is not likely, having water that disinfects your hands, the scrapes and injuries that are inevitable, and disinfecting the food you eat along the way is invaluable. You can’t pack enough water to drink with you and just plain water won't disinfect like ozone.
Is the water really safe? According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), whereas "person to person" transmission of norovirus has been documented, "Norwalk gastroenteritis is transmitted by the fecal-oral route via contaminated water and foods."
Contaminated Water Supplies On Cruise Ships?
The FDA reports that "water is the most common source of outbreaks and may include water from municipal supplies, well, recreational lakes, swimming pools, and water stored aboard cruise ships."

INTERNATIONAL OR RURAL TRAVEL
Travel can be challenging sometimes. Even when you think you are getting pure water, you might not be. Be assured with O-Pen.
At a rural dinner in one of my international travels, I was concerned about the drinking water. It was comforting to know I could use the elegant and unobtrusive O-Pen to make sure the water was free of pathogens without having to use a somewhat unwieldy filter straw, or another filtering device that might offend the hosts or staff.
In Brazil, we were riding in a jeep for a tour of the rainforest, when we passed a man on the roadside with a pickup full of plastic water bottles. He was filling them with water from a lovely waterfall that cascaded down a rock wall and onto the road. He then capped them and placed them back into the truck. I did not see the label or know what the bottles were for, but I was somewhat uneasy buying and drinking bottled water, wondering if it, too, was filled from a roadside waterfall.
Of course, airplanes are candidates for contamination. While you do get bottled water from the attendants to drink, there is nothing but the sterile wipes you bring on board (with chemicals in them) to clean your tray table, bathroom handles, seats, etc. Wipes are not that thorough. It is far more effective to sterilize your tray table with aqueous ozone.
Sometimes parents have no option but to change a (dirty?) diaper on the seat or tray table or floor. Disinfecting the seat and tray table seems like a good idea. Airplane tap water is considered so contaminated, even the attendants won’t drink it, so it is a good idea to have a way to purify the water.
O-Pen Tactical Black
You will never wail in despair…. “water water everywhere, nor any drop to drink” Whether pleasure cruise or Zombie Apocalypse, with the O-Pen, you can be sure of one thing. Your water is safe for you and your family.
What people are saying about the O-Pen
The O- Pen is a necessary product; I do not consider it a luxury. Super easy to use. If I can do it so can you. I have a great sense of security knowing that I can carry—in my pocket, purse or backpack— a way to make water safe to drink. I don't leave the house without it.
Sheila M. Pearsonson Water, water everywhere NOW any drop to drink! With the O-pen, this valuable resource can be safe to drink anywhere. Convenient, easy to use, and reliable, the O-pen guarantees that clean hydration is only a moment away. Along with a collapsible cup, mine is clipped in my flyfishing vest, ready for a safe, thirst-quenching drink directly from the stream. Ultimate portable reassurance!
We don't leave the house for a weekend of camping and backpacking or even a day on the boat without our Roving Blue O-Pen! For backpacking, when you never know what may happen, we combine it with our bio lite grill (which has a USB port to charge items with the energy from the wood-burning grill) to ensure we are good to go no matter what Mother Nature throws at us. Now that we have a clean water source that travels with us and is super light (very important when you have limited space) we have more room in our packs for luxury items. As a previous reviewer stated, Roving Blue O-Pen is not a luxury, it is a necessity, especially if your hobbies include finding yourself outdoors at the mercy of Mother Nature. Buy one, you won't regret it!
I love this pen! Such a convenient and necessary tool. I took it to Mexico recently and had no problems with drinking their tap water. A travelers dream. Not complicated to use, stores easily, holds charge ect. I highly recommend this product.
Works as advertised to purify water on my last trip south of the border. No issue at airport security. Well worth the price.
