The bottle is great, sleek and nice design, vacuum flask works well, but not durable. Very expensive but not worth the price. My LARQ bottle cap broke shortly after the warranty expired (1 year), so they can't help me and asked me to buy a new bottle cap ($70 USD) but they gave a discount. Pros: Good vacuum flask Nice design Customer service replies very fast Cons: Not durable Expensive If it breaks after the warranty is over, you're sh*t outta luck.

Really Bad Customer service, buggy device, If you take off the sticker in the bottom of the bottle while washing it then they will not replace it for you knowing that it is a bug in the Bottles software

I'm surprised that no one has pointed out that this bottle can't possibly do what it claims to do. What its makers claim is that you can put water contaminated with microbes in and get pure water out, by shining UV light on the microbes. But we all know that things, including microbes, don't just disappear, with or without UV light. If there are microbes or other contaminants in the bottle, you'll be drinking them. The most you can hope for with a sufficient dose of UV light is to prevent some microbes from reproducing (it doesn't even kill them). But bacteria don't reproduce in clean water anyway, and the UV has no effect on suspended solids and chemicals in your water. If you want to drink clean water, you have to filter it *before* putting it in your bottle. In my eyes, this product and its marketing are just a cynical (and successful) attempt to exploit the fears and ignorance of consumers for the gain of the Larq founders. A simple glass or stainless water bottle filled with clean water and washed when needed would be more "sustainable," healthier and much cheaper.

I supported these bottles's project since 2017, after many delays we received our bottles in summer of 2018. In the beginning they failed in less than a month but we were able to get replacements quite easily. In December we got our 2nd replacement bottles and since then they have worked quite well. There is a slight change in the taste of the water after the UVC led is on. The water tastes slightly better. We use now the bottle in a frequent basis, from 6 to 10 times per day. If you sum all those bottles, the investment in the bottles pays it off very quickly.

I think I'm on my third Larq bottle at this point? Maybe fourth? Every single one I've had has red-ringed (instead of working and cleaning your water, it displays a red ring and is nonfunctional forever). Larq has been very good about replacing bottles, but enough is enough. This is brutal. I'm done.

I purchased the top of the line bottle. I informed Larq. They asked me some questions and for picture evidence of the broken technology. I did everything and then Larq has not responded for more than month. They suck. Waste of money.

I have ten years' experience selling travel water bottles and I know what's good.
