Product Description - New Millennium Concepts Berkey Base with Ultra Bright White LED Lamps and Rechargeable Batteries
The Berkey® Base is made of a durable non BPA copolyester and is designed to fit under most gravity filtration systems including the Big Berkey®, the TravelBerkey® and Berkey Light® systems.
The Berkey® Base elevates gravity purification systems enabling containers to fit under the spigots. This allows a gravity purifiers to be used directly on the ground or situated anywhere on a flat surface and eliminates the requirement that the purifier be placed on the edge of a table or counter. The base has an optional eight-lamp LED lighting system (Not recommended for Travel Berkey® systems). This allows optimum use during no or low light conditions. Used with transparent Berkey Light™ systems, the light shines through the water causing the droplets of filtered water to light up and glow. 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 eight LED lamps within the base are the perfect night light and the WHITE LED's are bright enough to provide a long lasting low energy source of reading light, emergency light, a camping light as well as a beacon for water in no or low light conditions. The COBALT BLUE LED's are beautiful and are a real eye catcher. Additionally, the LED lamps are directional so the base can also be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight.

LED lights are unique in that they require very small amounts of energy and yet are very bright, in fact, the LED's can be spotted for over one mile in dark environments. This enables the LED to be illuminated all night long on a single charge of the internal rechargable batteries. The Berkey® Base comes complete with an AC adapter allowing the base to be powered by a standard AC current. When the LED's are switched off, the AC adapter automatically begins recharging the batteries. When utilizing the optional Berkey Battery Adapter™ case, the low energy LED's will provide light (8 hours per night) for approximately two weeks on a single set of four AA alkaline batteries. Incredibly, you get two weeks of emergency light for the price of one set of small AA batteries. When standard electrical power is unavailable, the optional Berkey MP Solar™ charger can be used to recharge the Berkey® Base batteries during daylight hours for later use at night. The Berkey MP Solar™ charger also has its own internal batteries which can also be used to power the Berkey® Base or other aplications.
The LED lamps can be powered by the internal rechargeable batteries (included with LED base), the AC adapter (included with LED base), the Berkey Battery Adapter™ case (optional) and the Berkey MP Solar™ charger (optional).
The flexibility of the Berkey® Base allows for its use as a long-term source of lighting in environments where electrical power is unavailable. Where electricity is available, the AC adapter allows for continuous use. The bright LED lamps have an average life of 100,000 hours, which is more than 11 years of continuous use.
The Berkey® Base is currently available in three versions; without lights, with bright white lights and with beautiful cobalt blue lights. The base without lights is designed for situations where elevation of the gravity filter is desired without the need for any auxiliary lighting. Cobalt blue is designed with beauty in mind and is for use in situations where it is desirable to enhance the ambience of the surrounding atmosphere. It is simply beautiful. The white LED version is designed for practical use in situations where emergency or auxiliary lighting may be required. The lights are bright enough to be usefull as a reading-light, night-light, flash-light or room-light.

After reviewing those lists of data, do you still find yourself concerned about the presence of virus. Unless you are using this device in the wild you are very unlikely to encounter virus in municipal drinking water supply because of the extent of chemicals and treatment of such water. Even in nature the presence of virus in water supplies is quite limited because of the nature of viruses. Viruses typically need a host in which they can survive and replicate. For your concerns, though, the use of the Colloidal Silver Generator offered at Nature'sAlternatives.com is highly recommended. Colloidal Silver is nature's original antibiotic.
