Sunlight consists of wide range of electromagnetic radiation. Particularly this radiation includes ultraviolet, visible and infrared light. Ultraviolet is subcategorized into UVA, UVB, UVC regions. Of all the Ultraviolet radiations emitted by the sun only 3-4% reaches the earth. Of the UV radiation that reaches the earth 95% consists of UVA, 5% consists of UVB, and 0% UVC. Thanks to the earth’s atmosphere which is absorbing all of the UVC radiation.
Over the years, several scientific studies show the effectiveness of UV light in sterilizing various surfaces. More recently, it has been found that UVC light has maximum germicidal efficacy, which means that by using a very low power of UVC light one could sterilize a surface effectively. CrazyCap uses this special region of light to achieve maximum sterilization effect. Using low powered UVC light poses great benefit in terms of safety and power consumption.
The science behind the UV sterilization is very simple. When biological organisms such as viruses, bacteria, pathogens, etc., are exposed to UV light, the proteins present on the cell walls rupture and causes the death of the microorganisms. This effect is further enhanced when cells stop replicating as genetic material (its RNA and DNA) from thymine dimers up on absorption of UV light.
What good is removing bacteria if you end up with a neurologically toxic metal? Thanks to recent developments in LED technology and our next-gen design, CrazyCap achieves the optimal light spectrum without using any mercury.
Just another way we care for your well being.
2 taps. 60 seconds.
7 days of use.
Fill your bottle with water from any debris-free source. As long as the water is transparent (so light can pass through it), you’re good to go.
Screw on your CrazyCap and finger-tighten for a proper seal. CrazyCap fits our sport bottle perfectly, as well as most 9-, 12- and 17-ounce cola-style bottles.
Gently double tap the touchpad for Normal Mode (for water from the tap and public fountains). For Crazy Mode (water from lakes, ponds, etc.) tap 5 times.
Drink confidently once the sterilization is completed.
Your questions, answered
CrazyCap fits 9oz, 12oz, and 17oz cola-style bottles. CrazyCap does not fit 25oz bottles. CrazyCap fits the 15oz bottle of S’ip by S’well. The size of the cap is 34mm in diameter (measured at the bottom where it seals the bottle neck).
CrazyCap is compatible with a majority of cola-style bottle brands. The most popular brands include MIRA, Simple Modern, Aorin, S’Well, Manna, HoneyHolly, BonBon, LiveLifeLong, Inosu, SunSella, Sportsneer, Chilly's, as well as many others. CrazyCap is also compatible with S'ip by S'well bottles. If you have any more specific questions about compatibility with a specific brand, please email us at Hello@theCrazyCap.com.
Charging your CrazyCap is not rocket science, and the process is very convenient. A port-less USB charging cable is included with your CrazyCap. Simply place the charger on top of the cap, and it will fully charge in 4 hours or less.
CrazyCap’s first generation battery will last approximately 30 days on a single charge in Auto-Clean Mode only. Using the CrazyCap on-demand will reduce the battery life. CrazyCap’s second generation battery will last approximately 7 days on a single charge with 3-4 uses in Normal Mode sterilization. Using the CrazyCap more often will reduce the battery life.
On-demand sterilization purifies your water when you need it. Simply tap on the touch sensor twice to activate purification for one minute (this is Normal Mode which is suitable for tap water). Tap on the touch sensor five times to activate purification for two minutes (this is Crazy Mode which is suitable for water from lakes or ponds).
CrazyCap uses deep UV spectrum light (in the range of 278nm) to disinfect your water and the bottle. This spectrum of light is found to have maximum disinfection capability. Thanks to the recent development in UV LED technology, this special spectrum of light can now be produced without using toxic mercury. When the UVC light enters the microbial cell and destroys the active core, i.e nucleic acids, cells without the active core will no longer be viable. Eventually, these dead cells convert into fundamental constituents such as CO2, water and some trace elements (nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorous, sulfur, etc,).
CrazyCap's deep UV water purification is effective against bacteria, viruses, and pathogens. It prevents a wide range of waterborne illness by effectively killing 99.999% germs from any questionable water source. CrazyCap does not remove particulate matter and/or chemicals (such as fluoride/chlorine) from the water.
When shone on surface, CrazyCap's deep UV light can eliminate up to 99% of germs. You can expose up to 10 square inches of the surface during Crazy Mode (2 minutes duration). The most effective distance for exposure to the surface is 4 inches.
When the deep UV light is activated, it shines on the interior surface of the bottle to destroy mold, bacteria, viruses, and pathogens. Due to this process, your bottles will not start to smell like some other bottles do. Thanks to CrazyCap's deep UV sterilization technology, you never have to worry about keeping your bottle clean since CrazyCap does this for you.
CrazyCap is a one of a kind of bottle with a built-in deep UV LED light to purify water on-the-go. The light also self-cleans your bottle so you don't have to. CrazyCap prevents mold growth in your bottle and keeps your bottle always smelling fresh. CrazyCap is perfect for everyday use and travel. With CrazyCap, you can ensure clean drinkable at the convenience of your fingertips. Don't waste your money on buying expensive bottled water. CrazyCap is a one-time investment which will last years. Its built-in LED has a ten year lifespan.
You can purchase CrazyCap with or without a bottle. Both options are available, so it entirely depends on your preference.

Double tap the touch sensor to activate Normal mode. Activation will be indicated by breathing blue color on the Ring LED indicator. The ring LED will turn green for a second once sterilization is complete. Make sure to rest your finger on the touch sensor completely for successful activation. Tapping too slowly or too quickly will not activate the sterilization.
Tap the touch sensor five times to activate Crazy mode. Activation will be indicated by breathing blue color on the Ring LED indicator. The ring LED will turn green for a second once sterilization is complete. Make sure to rest your finger on the touch sensor completely for successful activation. Tapping too slowly or too quickly will not activate the sterilization.
Tap the touch sensor once and wait for half a second, then an indicator light will glow to indicate the battery percentage. Green light indicates >50% battery charge Orange light indicates 25%-49% battery charge Red light indicates <25% battery charge
Step 1) Empty the contents of your bottle completely. Step 2) Screw the CrazyCap onto the bottle and treat the bottle two times in Crazy Mode. 5 taps on the touchpad activates Crazy Mode. Step 3) After two treatments, the odor should be eliminated significantly. If not, try Crazy mode one more time. Odor removal depends on how dirty the bottle was before the treatment. Note: CrazyCap's deep UV can only eliminate odor associated with mold, bacteria, fungi, algae, etc., but not due to perishable contents used in the bottle. Once it is thoroughly treated, the bottle can be maintained odor-free with CrazyCap's self-cleaning mode. To ensure your bottle surface is completely sterilized, perform sterilization on your empty bottle twice a day.
The deep UV LED CrazyCap uses is 278nm, while the visible light wavelength is 400nm to 700nm. Therefore, the true brightness of the light is not visible to the human eye. The best way to see the deep UV light is through scattering. Point the DUV light on white printer paper in the dark room to see the intensity of deep UV. Note: Please avoid looking directly into the UV light beam.
