Very impressed by these - virtually no chemical taste after use and dead simple to use: add 1 tablet to a litre & wait 30 minutes
I can't comment on the efficiency beyond than saying I didn't get sick from drinking stream water treated with this.
It gives a slight chlorine/bleach taste, but I've drank tap water that had a stronger taste than this, so it's not too bad.
What I really like about this is that it comes as really tiny and light tablets. No fussy packaging either, and you can cut the aluminium foil with scissors to take only the right amount of tablets you need.
Only one thing: the aluminium packaging is quite fragile. I had mine stored in my 1st aid kit, and with the squeezing and pressure in there, the aluminium packaging got gradually rubbed to the point where the little "pods" the pills are in got crushed and broke, so that the pills were exposed.
