Need a new water bottle for the gym or other exercise regime? How about the ION8?
About the Bottle
It claims to be a 100% Leak proof “BPA free” water bottle. It has a fast flow for rapid hydration and flip top cover for one handed use on the go.
NO LEAKS –
“100% leak proof, 100% of the time. Prevent accidents with a lid lock. Operated easily with one finger, it clicks reassuringly into place.” We tried it for several weeks – no it is not. Only with the lid top unlocked does it leak though – small air hole for lid ruins it a little. Lid accidents down to zero though.
ONE TOUCH –
“The hygienic flip top springs open for one handed use on the go. No annoying screw top, no dirty nozzle.” Good novelty lid with a good spring action – found it to be great in practice.
RAPID HYDRATION –
“Ion8 water bottles have a vented, smooth liquid flow. No glugging, no squeezing, no painful suction. Just effortless hydration.”
SUITABLE FOR HOT AND COLD –
“Ion8 is suitable for hot and cold drinks from -10°C to 96°C”
SAFE AND NON-TOXIC –
“Ion8 drinks bottles are made of BPA Free, phthalate free, non-toxic TRITAN® by Eastman. Tritan® is highly resistant to odours, can be easily cleaned and is dishwasher safe.”
Overall pretty good with it being a good thing to put in our gym bags. Sadly it was not perfect though, as it is not leak proof. When testing with glugged – turning the bottle to a 45 degree angle upwards with mouth over mouth hole – it leaked. Leaking via a air hole that secures the lid in place. However, in scenarios with other bottles with the lid closed and in hand/ or in bag – other bottles have leaked (think that is the scenario they are trying to cover).
Deduct a point for the non-leak proof situation – 3/5 score.
