FROM THE LAB...
Dive into Our In-House Review

The quick & dirty summary below...
The Berkey Light Water Filter is a stylish gravity-fed water filter that has some incredible specs.
First, the water filter removes 99.99% of viruses, pathogenic bacteria, and other unwanted compounds. This water filter produces water that is truly exceptional in both cleanliness and taste. It is perfectly safe and leaves no contamination in the water as some cheap plastics are prone to.
The filter purifies water at a rate significantly faster than many other competitors—4 gallons per hour.
It holds up to 2.75 gallons at a time, and it has a life of 6,000 gallons filtered before needing any replacements.
Finding something to complain about with the Berkey Light Water Filter is like going on an advanced scavenger hunt.
There just isn’t much to dislike. One thing to keep in mind is that, even though this water filter is great for travel, it’s still a bit bulky in size. The transport height is 21 inches (when used without base); 26.5" (with base), so it’s not like you’ll be carrying this thing around in your backpack wherever you go, like a water bottle. This is not the product for that.
However, this filter is easily transportable when the specs are considered. Regardless of the name, this water filter is exceptional, and it’s something we’ve been enamored by.
The Berkey Light Water Filter is perfect for small to medium-sized families, or someone who needs to use the filter in various places.

Anybody who is in the market for an efficient, top-of-the-line, portable and powerful water filter should focus their attention directly on the Berkey Light Water Filter. This system is especially designed to be small enough to take anywhere!

Furthermore, the filter is easy to set up and will produce crystal clear water for years, depending on how often it’s used.
This filter uses two advanced filtration elements that each have a life of 3,000 gallons. These two pieces of equipment give the complete water filtration device a 6,000-gallon capacity. In addition, it is constructed with non-BPA/BPS co-polyester, which does not retain or leach any odors into your water. If desired, Berkey PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Elements may be installed on each Black Berkey Purification Element.
Combined, you can count on the Berkey Light Water Filter to last years beyond any of its competitors. When the time comes to replace the filtration elements, the process couldn’t be easier. Simply follow the directions, and your device will be back to work in no time.
The Travel Berkey Water Filter comes with all the bells and whistles a potential buyer could ever need. It is compact, has a quick flow rate, and is built with high-quality materials.

FULL IN-DEPTH BERKEY REVIEW
Read Our Full Berkey Light Water Filter System Review Below:
We’ve seen, reviewed, passed on, and approved many water filters over our years in the industry. We know what a water filter needs to be top-notch.
When we make a recommendation for a water filter, you can take our word for it. We consider the design, structure, size, filter components, maintenance, filtering rates, and many more specifications before recommending anything.
What’s more, we know what customers want and what they need. To help potential buyers, we’ve created this full review on the Berkey Light Water Filter. Check it out to see what’s so great about this water filter!
The Berkey Light Water Filter System has a 2.75-gallon (10.4 liters) capacity. For normal everyday use, this can serve 1-5 people but is capable of serving up to 100-200 people a day during an emergency!
When configured with 2 Black Berkey filters, this water filter can produce up to 4 gallons (15.2 liters) of purified water in one hour; 7 gallons (26.5 liters) with 4 Black Berkey filters. Thus, this water filter should have plenty of size and the ability to provide water for 6 people or more per day.
Furthermore, as this filter is not too large, only 6 pounds when empty, and 21 inches high and 9 inches in diameter, it is easily transportable. Organizations like nonprofits and local community groups can benefit greatly from this. During meetings, get-togethers, or even emergency situations, the Berkey Light Water Filter can come in handy.
For individuals who live off-grid, or away from a clean water source, this water filter should be your clean water solution. Some people in more rural areas may rely on rainwater, stream, river, or lake water. Using the Berkey Light Water Filter gives those individuals peace of mind knowing that wherever their water comes from, it’ll end up clean and fresh.
Many individuals may find their local water to be hard or poor tasting, and this is sure to cure those problems. The Berkey Light Water Filter is the perfect multipurpose water filter for countless groups and backgrounds.
The Berkey Light Water Filter is what’s known as a gravity filter. This water filter needs no external power source to filter water. No pumps, electricity, or other additional items are needed for this to purify water. This water filter system has two chambers—the bottom holds the clean, filtered water whereas the magic happens in the top chamber.
When water is poured into the top chamber, gravity pulls it down through the two filtering elements. Although this method is not unique, the Berkey Light Water Filter System comes out on top when compared to its similar competitors. This water filter offers an exceptional flow rate that is unparalleled in the market.
As the water is pulled through using gravity, it comes into contact with the two filtering elements, the Black Berkey Filters. These filters are made in the US and designed with precise specifications. The filters are microporous, which aids in the filtration.
The material used in the filters also helps remove unwanted substances. In fact, the pores are smaller than any virus or bacteria, meaning nothing can pass through except clean, pure water!
The largest model can filter 6.5 gallons of water per hour, which is truly an exceptional rate.
As mentioned, the Berkey Light Water Filter utilizes state-of-the-art purification elements. These elements are widely known to be the best filtering elements in the industry. They are made from a carbon composite that incorporates a high-grade coconut shell. This shell is a proprietary mixture of 5 or more different compounds. These exceptionally built purifying elements filter out harmful and unwanted substances and compounds using their microporous structure. Although the material is technologically advanced and highly respected, it is not the only aspect that helps the filtering process.
The filters were designed perfectly to ensure water stays in contact long enough to pull out all the toxins from the water. This ensures the filters can adsorb any harmful substances in the water. All the while, the water is still moved efficiently through the filters keeping a flow rate of 2.75 gallons per hour.
No matter the source of water, these Black Berkey Water Filters can purify all water. Dirty lake water, still stream water, hard or metallic local water, it doesn’t matter!
The purifying elements have been tested at various state laboratories that are accredited by the EPA. All elements pass the NSF/ANSI Standard 53 tests, proving the capabilities.
The Black Berkey Water Filters can remove 99.99% of viruses and 99.99% of pathogenic bacteria found in water. The filters also completely remove or reduce below traceable levels of all the following.
- Heavy metals like lead, mercury, copper, cobalt, aluminum, barium, and many more
- Petroleum Products
- Radiological substances
This list is by no means comprehensive either. The Black Berkey Water Filters can remove over 200 harmful compounds. Berkey suggests customers perform a test that can prove just how effective these filters are.
All you need to do is fill up your top chamber with water and place some food dye inside. After the filtration ends, check your purified water. There should be absolutely zero color left over. Your product will be crystal clear water.
Considering how effective the filters are, many customers are surprised by their lifespan. The filters each can effectively filter 3,000 gallons before needing replacement. 2 filters in a Berkey system will purify approximately 6,000 gallons of water before replacement is recommended.
Another advantageous feature of the filters is that they’re cleanable. If the flow rate of your filter seems to slow down, you can remove the filters and clean them. To clean the Black Berkey Water Filters, remove them from the chamber, and brush the inside of them while water is running over them.
Berkey recommends using a ScotchBrite pad to do the brushing. Once brushed thoroughly, reinstall the filters by following the directions given. Your filter should be up and running with an adequate flow rate once again.
Designed to last. Designed for value.
As noted before, the total Berkey Light Water Filter system has a 6,000-gallon lifespan. With the water filter only costing $249, that brings the price of water per gallon to roughly 4 cents. Compare that to the average cost of a gallon of bottled water at $1.50, and you get a cost-effective solution that cannot be passed up.
Beyond the price of the water, the lifespan of the water filter system will last years, thanks to the durable design.
Berkey provides the following warranty categories depending on the specific product:
NMCL Limited Warranty: 6 months
NMCL Limited Warranty: 1 Year
NMCL Limited Pro-rated Warranty: 2 Years

As the filter has two chambers, both pieces are high quality copolyester containers with a plastic spigot made of high impact polypropylene in the bottom chamber. This spigot is BPA free and has been approved by the FDA for use. The two Black Berkey Water Filters inside the top chamber are 2.25” x 2.25” x 9.75”.
Besides our comprehensive review, thousands of customers have used, tested, and raved about the Travel Berkey Water Filters.
The filters have truly stood the test of time. They have built a reputation to be high-quality, reliable, and consistent. Many clients have noted how great the water tastes from the filter. For example, check out this review below.
“I can't say enough, and don't have time. This is a godsend for anyone wanting clean water...really clean water. It tastes wonderful, warm or cold. After the filters are broken in...maybe one week...the full tank filters quickly. Since there's no maintenance I have nothing to say there. I would recommend this item to anyone who wants to trust their water supply, especially where fluoride is added.”
Besides consumer reviews, Berkey filters are widely respected in the industry. They have been used across the globe in humanitarian aid to help in emergency situations. They have been used by groups such as the Peace Corps, Red Cross, and UNICEF. Other missionaries and volunteer workers have also used the Berkey water filters.
