Below is a list of our Frequently asked questions. If you still can't find the answer you're looking for please reach out at

What is UV-C and how does it work?

Our innovative UV-C LED technology built into the cap of your LUVE Bottle emits UV light which is optimized in the 280 nanometer spectrum, which makes it germicidal. The light will kill 99.99% of all bacteria and viruses by being absorbed deep into their DNA, making it impossible for them to reproduce and spread, making the water safe and pure. Check more details on our science page here

Is my LUVE bottle safe?

Absolutely! UV-C light does not stay in the water and is 100% safe to drink. The bottle also is armed with a safety mode, which means unless the lid is tightly secured, the light will not activate. If you unscrew the lid during a sterilization cycle the sterilization cycle will automatically stop and the light will turn off.

Does my LUVE bottle remove heavy metals and chemicals such as Fluoride from the water?

Unfortunately not, however it does eradicate 99.99% of harmful bacteria and viruses such as E-Coli and salmonella. It will also make sure your bottle keeps clean and safe too!

How do I activate the sterilization cycle?

Make sure the lid is tightened and press and hold the touch switch on the top of the lid for 2 seconds. The green light will appear and stay lit for 90 seconds. Once the light goes off, your bottle is clean and your water is pure.

How do I activate self-clean mode?

Make sure the lid is tightened and tap the touch switch on top of the lid twice. The purple light will flicker which means self-clean mode is activated. The bottle will self-clean automatically every 6 hours. The purple light will flicker frequently to remind you that self-clean mode is activated. Press the lid twice again to deactivate.

Does my LUVE bottle keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold?

Yes! It is double wall vacuum sealed so it will keep your hot drinks hot for 12 hours and cold drinks cold for 24!

Will my LUVE bottle purify stream/lake/river water?

It does not have a filter so it won't remove sand/stones etc. It will kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses but it's recommend only to use water from a healthy source that’s clear to the eye.

How do I charge my LUVE bottle?

Each bottle comes with a micro USB charging cable. Plug the cable into the head of a usb charging interface. The charging portal is underneath the waterproof silicone plug on the lid of the bottle.

Can I use other drinks in my LUVE bottle?

It’s a self-cleaning water bottle, so designed to work with water. You can use other drinks like sodas, juices etc, however you will need to manually clean the bottle with warm soapy water after use (please do not put the bottle in the dishwasher)!

Do I ever have to clean my LUVE bottle ?

Apart from a quick wash before first use, you should never have to clean the bottle yourself if you are only using it for water. The technology kills bacteria that makes your bottle smell funky, making sure you have clean water and a sparkly clean bottle at all times.
