WAPI compatible.

JetBoil Sol and JetBoil Flash series has the heat indicating feature on the side of the cup that turns orange.

Guess what? It turns orange at 140 F/60 C which happens to be the temperature of pasturization of water.

Short of an attached digital thermometer, that makes practical sense. ;)

I thought it was 139 F and 60 C.

I will look again.

edit:

online ref: http://www.gofastandlight.com/The-WAPI- ... /W-S-WAPI/

Worms, Protozoa cysts (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba) are killed rapidly at 55°C (131°F)

Bacteria (V. cholerae, E. coli, Shigella, Salmonella typhi), and Rotavirus are killed rapidly at 60°C (140°F)

Hepatitis A virus is killed rapidly at 65°C (149°F)

Water Boils at 100°C (212°F)

I would say if there is a chance Hepatitus A virus is in the water supply, then 149 F 65 C.
