The Travel Berkey Water Filter
The compact Travel Berkey water filter is the perfect system for small homes and apartments, for use during travel (fits in most suitcases), and for any outdoor activities or during unexpected emergencies.
We constructed the Travel Berkey of highly polished 304 stainless steel complete with two Black Berkey purification elements, 2 chambers, lid, spigot, and a rubber gasket to protect the base. This system is a great size for 1-3 people and for those who do not have much counter space, like small homes and apartments.
- Max Filtration Flow Rate: Configured with 2 Black Berkey Purification Elements, the Travel Berkey will purify up to 2.5 Gallons (9.5 liters) per hour.
- Fluoride Removal: Up to 2 PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic Filters may be installed in the lower chamber of this system if desired.
More About The Travel Berkey
Using the black berkey filters, this powerful Berkey water filter purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. The Travel Berkey is perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.
While this may be the smallest system in the Berkey line-up, it is just as effective and proficient as it's older siblings. This system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, chlorine, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and heavy metals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

I think you may be referring to the berkey light which is blue. The sight glass spigot is used with the stainless systems and can be found here:
The black berkeys are replaced approx every 6000 gallons. If you want to test them at any time to make sure they are working properly, you can perform a red food coloring test on the filters.
You would want to remove the black berkey filters and wrap them up in a small towel and bubble wrap to keep them safe from bumps and bruises while traveling. The Travel Berkey will nest in itself also, so you can place the filters inside this nested setup, then place the system in a box.
