The wild purification cup / Cup

The wild purification cup

The cup is especially designed for the people of field exploration to whom survival tools are extremely important. It can be separated into two parts, designing for field exploration and emergency situation. The upper part of the cup is a recycled filter system, which can purify river water, stream, dew and so on, filtering almost all bacteria and protozoa in the water. After filtering, the water will be heated if you shake the bottom part of the cup that produces heat through shaking.
