Water Purification: Facts vs. Myths

Watching Naked and Afraid or Survivor won’t make you a skilled survivalist. Sure, you may watch these kinds of shows enough to know the first things to do when you find yourself embracing nature are find a place to camp and make a fire before the sun goes down.


But if you were stranded in the wilderness, at what point does your mind begin to conflict with what you know vs. what you think you know?




As enticing as it may seem to kneel on the ground and scoop water from a river into your parched mouth, most of us know not to drink from a backwoods stream. Though, most of us think, “I need to boil the water for ten to twenty minutes before I can drink it.” Most of us are wrong.


Waterborne pathogens such as bacteria, protozoa, and viruses can be killed at high temperatures – but that doesn’t mean you need to bring the water to a rolling boil.


The Facts


Water boils at 212° Fahrenheit. However, according to the World Health Organization, pathogens can be killed or inactivated at a water temperature of 158° F in less than a minute.


It’s important to note that boiling temperatures change with altitude. The boiling point at sea level is 212° F, but if you’re at a height of 2,000 ft, the boiling temperature of water drops to 208.4° F. Therefore, the boiling point reduces as you get higher in altitude.


The Future of Survival


Whether it’s a camping trip or very unfortunate situation, people in the wilderness will probably use some sort of pot to purify water over a fire. Depending on how skilled you are in fire-starting and the amount of time it takes to heat the water, you’ll probably stay thirsty for a while.


With the Cauldryn travel mug, you can skip the hassle of over-the-fire cooking and purify water in moments. Setting it to level two will kill the pathogens at 160-170° F. Still don’t trust the facts? Bump it up to level three, four, or five if you want. Cauldryn can reach 212° at its maximum level to not only ensure sterilization, but also cook foods like soups, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, and vegetables.


So next time you find yourself in survival mode, know your facts from your myths. Having a Cauldryn might help, too.

Cauldryn Fyre Mobile Bottle Review

Traveling with a rechargeable insulated travel mugs!

We think they nailed it. Thanks to MidWest Base Camp for the kind words about our insulated travel mugs. No matter where you’re going – Cauldryn provides all day long heat for your favorite beverage.

How often have you wished for a battery-powered hot water bottle when you’re out on an adventure? Or how about a rechargeable electric hot water bottle that keeps your beverage warm almost indefinitely.

Better yet, what some might call a self boiling mug or water bottle, one that boils water when you need it? That my friends, is the Cauldryn Fire.

I almost didn’t believe it when I was offered a review sample of the Fyre. A water bottle that makes winter adventuring more pleasant and also is a survival tool year-round is a great addition to the gear closet.

The Cauldryn Fyre has a modular design. It’s a vacuum insulated stainless bottle with a two-stage lid (large and small opening, my fave). Integrated in this is the Fyre heating element, which, using a base, plugs in to an outlet and offers unlimited boil, brew, high heat, or drink cycles.

The Mobile model includes a rechargeable battery, so you can take it with you wherever you go (a true survival tool, sterilizing water as needed). It also allows you to charge devices from two USB outlets – super handy as a backup power source.

You can purchase a mobile battery at any time (MSRP $69.99) and make a regular Fyre mobile or have more battery time as a backup to the Fyre Mobile. There’s also a DC Power Base (MSRP $9.99) that can be used with any Cauldryn unit to power the unit from a 12V or 24V car/boat plug and is small enough to fit even in small cup holders.

The Battery Powered Travel Mug for All Day Temperature Control

Since our launch in November we’ve loved the responses that have been coming in from our customers. Our electric travel mug is changing the way people consume their hot beverages and that is something we are proud of!

With all of the great feedback we have been receiving, we would like to share a recent review from The Adventure Blog!

Gear Closet: Cauldryn Fyre Mobile Heated Water Bottle

One of the things that I’ve l liked most about the continued advancements in technology is that it has forced us to improve the batteries that go into our various devices. These more powerful and long-lasting rechargeable power cells have made their way into a wide variety of other product that either didn’t use them before or didn’t exist at all. Such is the case with the new Cauldryn Fyre Mobile, a heated water bottle that will redefine the way you think about hot beverages and cooking around the campsite, while on the go.

At first glance, the Cauldryn Fyre looks like a lot of other water bottles you might find on the market, It is sleek, made of stainless steel, and uses the vacuum-insulated design that has proven to be a winner in countless other models over the past few years. The 16-ounce bottle even has two openings for sipping a beverage or for pouring out more liquid depending on your needs.

But look a little closer, and you’ll start to see how this product differentiates itself from the competition. For starters, it includes a built-in heating mechanism that allows it to warm a beverage completely on its own, or keep liquids hot for hours at a time. This heating element is so powerful in fact that it can even boil water all on its own. Simply plug the bottle into a USB outlet and set it to the temperature you need.

The Cauldryn Fyre comes in two different models, the standard version and the Mobile. The difference between the two is that the Mobile edition comes with a battery pack that allows it to function while away from a power source. An included battery pack means that you can have hot beverages on the go, even if you’re venturing far off the beaten path. Taking a morning hike to the top of your favorite peak, but would like some hot coffee along the way? The Cauldryn Fire Mobile can handle that. Snowshoeing or backcountry skiing and want some hot cocoa? Check!

The secret behind the Cauldryn is its Fyre heating element. Embedded in the bottle itself, this handy piece of technology offers five levels of warmth ranging from Boil (212 degrees), Brew (195-205 degrees), Extra Hot (160-170 degrees), and two Hot modes (135-145 degrees and 125-135 degrees). Those modes can be selected as needed, providing options for conserving battery life too. The Boil and Brew options eat up the most power of course, while the lower hot modes are much more conservative. In fact, they can be switched on and keep a beverage steaming hot all day long, even running off of just the external battery.

The stainless steel cup can be easily removed from the power pack for wire-free drinking. It snaps back into place extremely easily, making it a breeze to take a drink while driving, then return it to its power source to keep the beverage warm as needed. The travel mug does a good job of keeping liquids hot (or cold) completely on its own, but when paired with the mobile battery pack, it truly can provide warm drinks all day long.

With the battery pack attached, the Cauldryn Fyre Mobile is a bit tall, which means you’ll have to be careful not to tip it over. Because of this extra height it can be a bit unstable, although the lids ensure that no water spills out. In fact, the device actually operates just fine, even if it is laying on its side.

One of the more intriguing uses for the Cauldryn Fyre Mobile is as a portable stove for use in the backcountry. Because it can boil water quite quickly, you can heat up packaged meals in no time at all. Obviously there are backpacking stoves that are much smaller and lighter than this device, which tips the scales at about 1 pound (.45 kg), but when you factor in fuel and a pot to boil water, things even out quickly. On extended trips the battery life wouldn’t necessarily be up to the task, but on short overnighter or weekend outings, this is a viable option. Particularly if you bring solar panels or an external power source for recharging.

Speaking of the battery, it holds a large enough charge that if you’re conservative with how you use the Cauldryn Fyre you can make it last for quite a long time. The battery pack comes with two USB ports as well, allowing users to recharge mobile devices such as a smartphone. The battery pack is sold separately for $69.99, allowing standard Cauldryn buyers to add one later if they like, or Mobile users to pick up an additional one for additional run time.

Overall, the Cauldryn Fyre Mobile is a fast and efficient way to boil water, but is also fantastic for keeping hot beverages warm for extended periods of time. That makes it a great choice for anyone who spends time in the outdoors during the colder months of the year. Whether you’re actually hiking into the backcountry or simply going to the local ice rink, this bottle will come in handy. It also makes a great gift heading into the holiday season as well.

The standard Cauldryn Fyre runs $69.99 while the Mobile edition is $129.99. Find out more here.

Best New Gear Awards

When Gear Institute – the leading authority of the coolest new gear for outdoor enthusiasts – headed out to find the most innovative new gear at the Outdoor Retailer show it didn’t take them long to find Cauldryn and our innovative thermal travel mug.

Here is what they had to say following the show.

Meet the world’s first self-heating water bottle. Using rechargeable battery power (from AC or DC outlets), users can choose a few different settings to heat up liquid: boil, brew, hot and extra hot. The battery charge can provide up to two boils or a boil and some duration (undisclosed as of yet) of keeping the drink warm after that. We love this idea for snow days and car trips where coffee shops are scarce, and there’s not time to whip out a stove to brew up.

Thermal Mug

Cauldryn Boiling Water Bottle

When Hi Consumption took a look at thermal mugs there was one brand that rose to the surface. We can’t thank Hi Consumption enough for the great coverage on Cauldryn

Here is their review.

One of the absolute best ways to purify water and make it ready to drink is by boiling it – a fact which any seasoned outdoorsman could tell you. But, it’s not always easy or convenient to do that while you’re out in the wilderness. If only there was an easy to carry and operate vessel that could boil water on the go. Actually, there is. And it’s called the Cauldryn.

It comes in two parts: the Cauldryn is the vessel and the heating element is called the Fyre. The idea is simple – just fill the 16-ounce Cauldryn and attach it atop the Fyre and the battery-powered heating element will boil the contents. Then, you can drink it or empty it, fill it up, and plug it in again – giving you up to 32 ounces of drinkable water per Fyre charge. The heating element can also plug directly into an AC or DC power supply – via USB – and offers up infinite boiling. And, if you’re just trying to heat up some coffee or soup, the Cauldryn can be set to different lower temperatures, including Hot, Extra Hot, and Brew. The Cauldryn will be officially released at this year’s Outdoor Retailer convention. To read the full Hi Consuption review click here.

Cauldryn promises battery-powered boiling in the wild, no flame required

When you’re venturing into the wilderness, the ability to quickly boil water is convenient and, potentially, crucial for maintaining good hygiene. Although fire and a saucepan is one way to get your water bubbling away, a St Louis-based team has an alternative solution in the form of Cauldryn, a battery-powered mug.

Thermal Mug helps campers boil water

According to its creators, the secret to the Cauldryn’s on-the-go heating capability is the Fyre heating element, which attaches to the base of a vacuum-insulated 16-oz (473 ml) bottle, and can be set to four different temperatures: Hot (125-135° F/52-57° C), Extra Hot (160-170° F/71-77° C), Brew (195-205° F/91-96° C) and Boil (212° F/100° C).

In a time lapse video posted on the product’s crowdfunding page, it takes 18 minutes to turn ice blocks into boiling water. The more expensive Fyre Mobile is powered by a rechargeable battery good for two full boils, although it can also be powered using a DC wall plug. The base model doesn’t include a battery, but the mug’s modular nature allows one to be added later on.

Battery-powered mugs or flasks that keep beverages hot are nothing new, but being able to boil water is a handy step forward from what others like the Yecup offer. Launched last year, the Yecup is able to heat liquid to 158° F (70° C) and cool it to 50° F (10° C). Cauldryn says the vacuum-sealed design of its bottle also allows it to keep drinks cool, while the ability to boil water is a huge advantage.

At the moment, Cauldryn is the subject of a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo, where it has raised more than 40 percent of its US$10,000 goal with 11 days remaining. Pledging $50 is enough to reserve a Cauldryn Fyre with no battery, while the Fyre Mobile sits at the $100 pledge level. Should the crowdfunding campaign be successful, deliveries are set to take place in October this year.

The Cauldryn Fyre Uses a Battery to Boil Its Contents

We make camping easy! Thanks to Joey Haar at Trend Hunter Tech for the great review on our travel mug, the Cauldryn Fyre

Boiling water is one of the most frustrating rote chores that comes with camping, and the Cauldryn Fyre is a new piece of camping gear that effectively eliminates the task altogether. The 16 ounce water bottle uses a battery-powered heater to boil water directly inside it, and its insulation system ensures that the fluid will stay hot for hours.

Bringing water to a boil while camping takes more than simply waiting around the fire. Because of the intense and sustained heat required, boiling means continuously tending to the campfire, and it also means that campers need an ample stock of firewood. With the Cauldryn Fyre, the only thing that needs to be full is the battery, which can boil two full bottles of water on a single charge.
