The Berkey Light systems are made and assembled in the USA.
The Berkey Base elevates gravity purification systems enabling containers to fit under the spigots. This allows a gravity purifiers to be used directly on the ground or situated anywhere on a flat surface and eliminates the requirement that the purifier be placed on the edge of a table or counter. The base has an optional eight-lamp LED lighting system. This allows optimum use during no or low light conditions. Used with transparent Berkey Light systems, the light shines through the water causing the droplets of filtered water to light up and glow. The resulting waves reflect soothing patterns of light onto the surrounding area. The lighting effects coupled with the melody of raindrops, combine to create a unique and relaxing atmosphere.
The eight LED lamps within the base are the perfect night light and the WHITE LED’s are bright enough to provide a long lasting low energy source of reading light, emergency light, a camping light as well as a beacon for water in no or low light conditions. The COBALT BLUE LED’s are beautiful and are a real eye catcher. Additionally, the LED lamps are directional so the base can also be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight.
The Berkey Base is a replacement stand for the Berkey Light. It can also be used as a stand for the Travel Berkey and Big Berkey, however, we recommend our metal wire stands for the stainless steel systems here. The base eliminates the need to have the system placed at the edge of a table or counter. With the system raised on the base, it allows a cup to be placed under the spigot.
LED lights are unique in that they require very small amounts of energy and yet are very bright, in fact, the LED’s can be spotted for over one mile in dark environments. This enables the LED to be illuminated all night long on a single charge of the internal rechargeable batteries. The Berkey Base comes complete with an AC adapter allowing the base to be powered by a standard AC current. When the LED’s are switched off, the AC adapter automatically begins recharging the batteries. When utilizing the optional Berkey Battery Adapter case, the low energy LED’s will provide light (8 hours per night) for approximately two weeks on a single set of four AA alkaline batteries. Incredibly, you get two weeks of emergency light for the price of one set of small AA batteries. When standard electrical power is unavailable, the optional Berkey MP Solar charger can be used to recharge the Berkey Base batteries during daylight hours for later use at night. The Berkey MP Solar charger also has its own internal batteries which can also be used to power the Berkey Base or other applications.
The base without lights is designed for situations where elevation of the gravity filter (Big Berkey, Travel Berkey, Bekey Light) is desired without the need for any auxiliary lighting. Cobalt blue is designed with beauty in mind and is for use in situations where it is desirable to enhance the ambiance of the surrounding atmosphere. It is simply beautiful. The white LED version is designed for practical use in situations where emergency or auxiliary lighting may be required. The lights are bright enough to be useful as a reading-light, night-light, flash-light or room-light.
