Bottlelight / Water Purifier/Camping Light


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

A bottle that is also a light is a product that helps to reduce your luggage while camping. The top consists of two pressurized cast-aluminum parts with interior sealing. This part provides a watertight and durable case for the electronics. A UV water purifier during the day and a useful camping light at night, Bottlelight provides two essential must-haves: fresh water and light. In only 60 seconds, the UV LEDs eliminate 99,9% of bacteria, viruses and protozoa in 1 liter of water. A USB port can charge the battery (10 hrs; 30 lumen) while the 45° reflector at the bottom provides a plain and glare-free light source.

This design fulfills an unmet demand. Many customers shall appreciate its unique feature.
Jury Statement
I am very happy to get the iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD for my Bottlelight project. Since it is an independent project I did during my free time, it is very nice to get this kind of feedback!
