CrazyCap2 : FirstLook

Can a bottle cap save the world?

The RainyDaySports folks have looked at a lot of filtration devices over the years—portable, countertop, under-sink, LifeStraw—but we have never seen anything like the CrazyCap2.

The CrazyCap2 is a tiny, portable, UV-light powered purifier that fits on most standard cola-style bottles.

Unlike other water purifiers, this gadget needs no maintenance (filter changes, new bulbs, etc.) except to be charged up every so often.

  • 100% LED
  • 278nm UV wavelength
  • Rechargeable
  • Rated for 500K uses

The CrazyCap2 is completely self-contained. The touch-pad to activate the UV-LED is on top, a silicone O-ring sits at the base of the lamp module, and the UV-LED is sealed inside.

Because of its portability, the CrazyCap2 can sterilize not just water, also sanitize utensils and surfaces. Try doing that with other water filters!

How many disinfecting cycles the CrazyCap2 can provide depends on when the battery was last charged and how frequently it was used. According to the CrazyCap2 folks, it will work for 7 days on a single charge, with 3-4 uses in Normal Mode sterilization.

Charging the CrazyCap2 is very simple:

It is charging when the CrazyCap2’s light is on and pulsing, and fully charged when the light is steady Green;

Note: Green light indicates >50% battery charge, Orange light indicates 25%-49% battery charge, Red light indicates <25% battery charge

The CrazyCap2 may be purchased with or without a stainless steel bottle. Their 17 oz. capacity bottle is made from 304 stainless steel, is insulated, and will keeps drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours. For the extra $10, the bottle is a bargain even if you already have a bottle which may fit the cap.

Can the CrazyCap2 change the world? If it can make water safe enough to drink, reduce the amount of plastic bottles ending up in landfills, and last a good long time, then it just might.

Even if it can’t, it can certainly do a whole lot of good! We’ll have more in the FirstUse writeup coming before the Summer.
