There is so much to say about this little water bottle, Ion8. Over the past 6 months or so I’ve been using it for many different drinks:
- hot tea
- lemonade – homemade, sqeezed lemon (or lime), with honey and mint leaves
- chia seeds drink – water, honey, chia seeds and lime
- orange and grapefruit juice homemade with pulp
I used it for running, cycling, karate training, karate competitions, even at business meetings. It pretty much fits in any environment I find.
Easy to wash
The reason I could have juice with pulp is because the nozzle can be washed! This is one of the features I love most. The pulp, or honey, will not stick inside the nozzle. You can actually wash it away!
Along with the ease of washing the Ion8 water bottle is also leak proof with its lid lock system. I’ve had it in my back pack in all possible positions, inclduing upside down. And after 6 months of using it daily it’s still perfectly leak proof.
No more dirt
I used to get the nozzle full of dirt with the regular water bottles, because the nozzle was not covered. So I would eat dirt and wash it down with water. Ion8 water bottle fixed that for me with it’s lid that protects the nozzle from dirt and touching it with dirty hands.
Another awesome thing about the Ion8 bottle is that you can take hot drink with you, up to 90 degrees celsius. When we train outdoors in winter having a hot drink in your backpack is such comfort. No more separate thermos bottles. Although it may not keep it hot as a thermos would, at 90 degrees, it keeps it rather warm throughout 1-2 hours session. So I’m perfectly happy with that.
No more sqeezing the bottle until something comes out of it. With the Ion8 water bottle is enough to just tilt and pour.
The lid opens with one hand (tested) and locks close. I found that very useful when cycling.
Finally, the Ion8 water bottle is BPA free, phthalate free, non-toxic TRITAN is dishwasher safe.
