Larq self-cleaning water bottle

Sure, helping the environment by buying a reusable water bottle is great and all, but cleaning it isn't so fun. Enter the rechargeable Larq bottle, which cleans itself. Yes, you read that correctly. It purifies both the water and bottle at the touch of a button, or intuitively every two hours, to neutralise germs. It’s also double-insulated to keep drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for 12.
