I have done some research on UV light bulbs and am adding this information to be considered and reviewed. After reviewing it, I'll have to filter it to see what information is useful. Pardon the pun.
Relevant XO specs:
1. Battery: Capacity: 22.8 Watt-hours (LiFePO4); 16.5 Watt-hours (NiMH);
2. USB: Three Type-A USB-2.0 connectors; up to 1A power supplied (total)
3. From: http://laptop.org/en/laptop/hardware/specs.shtml
UV Sterilizers (What differences between different types?):
1. Google search: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=uv
2. Aquarium bulbs:
3. Other sterilization options:
a. Ozonizers (requires protein skimmers?):
b. Reverse Osmosis:
4. Notes about UV sterilization for aquariums (How does this relate to human
a. A UVC bulb is necessary. UVA and UVB would be ineffective.
b. UVC will have less than 280nm wavelength, and preferably around or below
c. The water to be treated must be in range of the light. (What is the
d. These considerations from the above link. Key points from this link are
1. Amount of water that is going to be treated (liters or gallons).
2. Where the UV Sterilizer will be placed in the aquarium setup.
3. Power rating of the UV Lamp.
4. Service requirements and servicability of UV Sterilizer unit.
*. Always purchase a Sterilizer with at least 25% more treatment capacity
than the size of the area that is to be treated.
*. It is best to maintain mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration
when using a UV Sterilizer. The "dead" material needs to be removed.
Section 4 all from here.
5. New Technology: LED UV, ideal for use in this project?
6. Residential UV sterilizers:
