The shatter resistant and virtually unbreakable Berkey Light™ system is made of a high impact strength, non BPA copolyester.
The Berkey Light™ system does not leach foul tasting plasticizers into your water and will not retain foul tastes and odors from waterborne contaminants. As the system purifies water, it produces the delightful and relaxing sound of falling raindrops.
When used with the Berkey Light™ LED Base, these water droplets light up and glow and the resulting waves reflect soothing patterns of light onto the surrounding area. The lighting effects coupled with the melody of raindrops, combine to create a unique and relaxing atmosphere.
The revolutionary Berkey Light™ cleanable purification elements purify water by removing or reducing viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and by extracting harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. They also reduce rust, silt, sediment and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury.
The base has an optional eight-lamp LED lighting system, available in practical white or beautiful cobalt blue, allowing for optimum use day or night. Incredibly, the Berkey Light™ LED lamps have an average life of over 11 years of continuous use and are so bright the white LED’s can be spotted for more than a mile in the dark, yet they require very little energy.
The adaptable Berkey Light™ LED lighting system is designed for long-term use even when electrical power is not available. The LED lamps can be powered by the 110 Volt AC adapter (included with LED base) when electricity is available, or by the internal rechargeable batteries (included with LED base). To use outside the US, a Step Down Voltage Converter may be required; please check your local voltage requirements first.
When power is not available, the Berkey Battery Adapter™ case (optional) provides an incredible two weeks of nighttime light from four small AA alkaline batteries and the Berkey MP Solar™ charger (optional) provides for an endless source of power. This makes the Berkey Light™ system the ideal camping-light and emergency light.
What’s more, the detachable base can be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight.
