The packets are good, no energy, but use chlorine.

Katadyn and others do not use chemicals but silver impregnated ceramic filters and preferable, if you can pump.

Depends on your circumstances.

Like I said in a situation where your only water is mostly a mud puddle this stuff would be awesome. I would use it to get rid of the solids and then run it through my regular water filter.

Simple, Cheap, and Portable: A Filter-Free Desalination System for a Thirsty World

Quote:
MIT researchers have developed a prototype of a suitcase-size device that can turn seawater into safe drinking water.
...
“Instead of filtering, we are nudging the contaminants [in this case, salt] away from the water,” Han says. This portable unit, he adds, is a good demonstration of the effectiveness of ICP desalination technology. “It is quite different from other technologies, in the sense that I can remove both large particles and solids all together.”
