A tiny portable water filter with unprecedented versatility. The MINI can be used attached to: a straw to drink directly from the water source, a standard disposable bottle (with 28 mm thread), a collapsible drinking pouch, or a hydration pack. It is 5.5 inches long, and weights 2 ounces. It is filled with hollow fiber membranes that attach to the filter's outlet. Each membrane is a tube with 0.1 micron pores throughout, only allowing clean water to enter its core. Backwashing can restore up to 98.5% of the filter's flow rate, which enables the MINI to filter up to 100,000 gallons without needing replacement. The MINI removes: 99.99999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera and E.coli; and, 99.9999% of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium. The MINI was introduced in 2013, and has been used for applications such as: emergency preparedness, and outdoor recreation (hiking, camping, scouting).
