It's all about the batteries

The SteriPEN JourneyLCD requires 2 rechargeable or disposable CR123 batteries

Disposable Lithium Batteries:
- Expect about 50 cycles (1 liter treatments) before needing to replace the batteries
- Name brand batteries work best: Energizer Lithium Photo, Sanyo, Panasonic, Kodak, Duracell

Rechargeable Lithium Batteries:
- Expect about 30 cycles (1 liter treatments) before needing to recharge the batteries
- Recommend AW brand (
- My personal tests with AW brand rechargeable batteries were 40 cycles before needing to be recharged

Note: SteriPEN models that use four (4) AA batteries average twice the number of cycles as those that use two (2) CR123 batteries. Carrying an extra set of CR123 batteries will provide a comparable number of cycles to those models.
