Lightweight Portable Water Boiler by Boilerwerks
Whether you’re a novice prepper or a full on survivalist, you should know the importance of boiling your water if it hasn’t come straight out of a sealed bottled. Even the cleanest water source can have bacteria, cysts, and microbiological waterborne pathogens, amongst other invisible enemies, that can make you extremely ill and possibly kill you.
Sometimes it is not practical or possible to make a full on fire to sterilize the water you just secured. If you are mobile and avoiding an enemy, be it the living or the undead, a smokey fire could give away your position. What you really need and want is a device that is efficient enough to rapidly heat your water while producing minimal smoke.
