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.

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.

Berkey Reviews

I really like this system.Review by Becky
I bought a Travel Berkey in July of 2013, which is a little more than a year ago. I also bought the PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic filters to go with it, and I have reviewed them separately. I also use this system with the sight glass spigot, which I consider to be an important component.

I really like that the Black Berkey filters purify the water of many, many different types of hazards. I really like that the water reservoirs (top and bottom chambers) are made of stainless steel, so I don't have to worry about much residue from plastics leaching into my drinking water. I like that this system filters water more thoroughly than the Pur 2 Stage filtering system that I am replacing, and it does so more cost effectively.

I am awarding the Travel Berkey 5 stars, but there are a few design modifications that I would like so much that I would even buy another whole system for myself:

1. I don't have much extra counter space if you measure the width of it, due to the need for space to prepare food. However, I do have a lot of counter space when measuring from front to back, as I tend to store things back near the wall. I would be able to get a larger capacity unit for my kitchen if the system were oblong from front to back, rather than round on its base. That way, the unit wouldn't have to be so tall that the upper cabinet door would be blocked, because the water would be taking up more space toward the back of my counter.

2. Also, it would be great if you could offer these systems with a brushed stainless exterior finish. It would mask the appearance of water spots better, and match more of my appliances and gadgets in my kitchen to create a more unified look. I think these suggested design modifications would be attractive to a lot of current and potential customers, as well. (Posted on 9/19/14)
The Best Review by John
The best tasting water . I don't have to lug heavy water bottles when I go food shoping. (Posted on 9/10/14)
Berkey Rocks, Go Bigger unless it's just you!Review by Ruth...Luv It From Canada, however I should of Gotten the Royal!!!
I Love this water system, I was drinking poison until now!!!
I bought the travel with the extra flouride filters...this is the whole idea of clean water and not poison so definetly include them in your order. The water reminds of fresh rain water from the farm with no caca smell or taste!...Great fast shipping...You will be drinking more water because this is the water your body really wants to drink!!! So don't hesitate to go bigger I shoulda... I also purchased the glass spigot it's really handy....Don't be cheap get one.. they would be smart to include for a bigger price but I tracked it down not all sites have them... A great buy saves on lifting and fiddling will be glad you did...the light stand is cool too it's like a Beacon Drink me drink me!!!

You can For Go the stand if your on a budget however the other stuffs is a must HAVE!!!

I thank-you for an amazing system!!! I know I have found the system to make the one thing our bodies need pure!!!

I loved doing the red dye test!!!! I knew I was home>>>thanks Berkey!;) with Luv from Canada Bless you! (Posted on 1/15/14)
LOVE IT! Review by matthew
I am very happy with this product and it works real good for me. However I am a big guy and it filters just enough for me but if you have a family bigger is better in fact get the biggest you can. The filters work great and the water tastes great and my town chlorinates our water heavily where it smells like an indoor pool! Also IMO the fluoride filters are a must so don't skimp on that! (Posted on 1/10/14)
Awesome filtration systemReview by Buddha
I've had the system now for 2 weeks. The water taste great! Set up was fairly easy and filtration rate is good. My only regret is I didn't go bigger. I have the travel Berkey. (Posted on 12/17/13)
I love the design and look of this systemReview by Shauna
I love the design and look of this system. It's great for my apartment and I would recommended getting the sigh glass spigot. It's worth the extra $25! (Posted on 10/23/13)
The taste of the berkey water...Review by Mary P
The taste of the berkey water is wonderful! I got this because I live in a town that fluoridates their water and I don't want someone else making the decision that my daughter and I have to drink fluoride on a regular basis. (Posted on 6/20/13)
fast ship.Review by kevin
Just got this on the thursday the 14 of February. Packed well, no dents. Easy set up. Followed all instructions. Filled it up, woke up to a gallon of water on the floor. Seal on spigot leaked all night. Filled again , leaked out again, read a post about soaking the beveled seal in olive oil. Seems to have worked.i have owned distillers and many types of other filters, all took elbow grease,fire,electricity. This one takes nothing, i like that. Good price and fast shipping, reliable so far. Plus i was tired of lugging 4 five gallon containers of bought bottled water home on my bike cart. This was a no brainer, wondered what took me so long. Thanks berkey. (Posted on 2/16/13)
What water should taste likeReview by Tina
I moved to PA, and the chlorine smell coming out of the tap was very strong; it also tasted acky bad. No wonder people drink all that flavored, sugared up stuff when this is what they think water tastes like. NO! I installed a Berkey with additional fluoride and arsenic filters and the water I get now is pure and sweet. Better than fizzy chemicals that are popularly known as soda. It's a very good thing to do no matter the size of your family. (Posted on 1/30/13)
my presentReview by Jack
My parents got me this travel berkey for christmas. I'm loving it and I'm glad they finally got me something I actually wanted. I'll be ordering the PF-2 filters soon. (Posted on 1/11/13)
good findReview by William
I stumbled upon the berkey last month when researching the fluoride they put in public water. I'm a holistic practitioner and do NOT recommend ingesting any chemicals into the body if one can help it. I'm loving my travel berkey (with the fluoride filters) and letting all my clients in my fluoridated town know about it. Thanks for such a wonderful product! (Posted on 12/24/12)
A no brainerReview by Ryan
Not much else to say. I live by myself and I wanted a filter system that is cheap but will last me a long time. Plus, as a Marine abroad I've experienced first hand the high value potable water has in an emergency. This was a no brainer indeed. (Posted on 9/12/12)
My Travel Berkey ImpressionReview by Megan Stevens
I wish I had gone larger. There's 4 of us in the family (2 little ones) and I have to fill it every day. It'd be nice if the sight glass spigot came standard because with all the water we drink I have to keep a close on it to make sure it doesn't run out. (Posted on 6/21/12)
Another Great ExperienceReview by Alison Ceravelli
This is my 3rd berkey system purchase which I wanted for my summer cabin. I\'ve never written an online review, but given the amount of time the phone reps have spent with me answering my (sometimes goofy) questions and pointing me to helpful articles on the site, I felt like I owed them a good review. The berkey water filters and the customer help that I\'ve gotten with each purchase has exceeded all my expectations. This is how an internet buying experience should be! (Posted on 6/21/11)
Great for 2Review by Catherine Gibbons
My husband's an ER doctor and the hospital he works at has the 4 gallon system I believe. He convinced me that we should get one for our home and I'm glad we did! The water tastes fresh (which is long overdue) and it's enough water to get us through the day. (Posted on 4/3/10)
Thank youReview by Paul
My wife and I really enjoy the berkey and the water tastes better than ever. I just wish is had come with a stand. (Posted on 2/7/08)

Product Questions

Product Questions

Is the beautiful blue glass container called the "Sight Glass Spigot?" Can it be purchased separately?
How long will the PF-2 filters last?
How do I know when the filters need to be changed?
When I buy the Berkey Travel - does it come with the filters already and if so, how many? Or do I have to add the filters on separately? I would want this to have the black filters and the flouride filter when I purchase it. Thank you. :)
