Are you a traveller that has been constantly on the lookout to make sure you are only using clean water for your baths? Then here’s a product that may just end your search. The CEBIEN Compact Shower Kit is a showerhead that you can take with you anywhere you go.
CEBIEN Inc., the company behind this product, has been developing and producing showers since 1994. They have developed various shower types, from all-in-one showers to storage showers. But lately, they have been focused on showerheads and the CEBIEN Compact Shower Kit is their latest offering. So what is it and how can it help you?
What is the CEBIEN Compact Shower Kit?
The CEBIEN Compact Shower Kit is basically a showerhead that you can attach to any shower system. It is compatible with most hoses as the company made sure the connector is according to the global standard. So no matter where you go, you’d just have to remove the existing showerhead and replace it with this compact kit. It’s that simple.
Now, what makes this shower kit so special is its filters. The CEBIEN Compact Shower Kit comes with two types of filters to reduce or even eliminate the impurities in the water. There’s the Sediment Filter which can block dust, rust, and other contaminants. Then there’s the Sediment + Vitamin Filter that can do the same but with an added benefit of letting you enjoy the fragrance of lemon and mango combined. According to the company, this filter can remove residual chlorine and offer aromatherapy.
These filters can provide you with safe and clean water in your home and travel destinations. This function is becoming increasingly important today since more and more substances are found in water. For example, some states in the U.S were found to have unsafe levels of lead in their water supplies. In other places and countries, there’s also arsenic, radium, copper, chlorine, and more. And regular exposure to these substances can lead to multiple diseases.
What we noticed immediately with the CEBIEN Travel Shower Kit is that it looked awfully similar to a bidet. They even have the same size too. Since it isn’t commonly used in Australia and the U.S, a bidet shoots streams of water at your private bits to wash them. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially because of its size.
See, this travel shower kit is designed specifically for that – travelling. Thus, it’s lightweight, portable, and even comes with a case. It’s also half the size of normal showerheads. And when compared to others with the filter function like this Sonaki Assembly, the CEBIEN is 8 times lighter. So it’s a great option for individuals who often go on business trips or those who just love going around the world and staying at hotels or other comfortable living spaces. That said, this isn’t something you’d bring on outdoor trips like hiking or camping. This is because it needs to be connected to an existing shower system.
To help you understand this product better, here are its specifications:
|Showerhead Dimensions||52 x 170 x 40mm|
|Case Dimensions||82 x 203 x 47mm|
|Temperature Range||1℃ (33.8℉) to 60℃ (140℉)|
|Water Pressure Range||1.0-6.0 kgf/㎠ (0.1-0.6 Mpa)|
|Materials||PCTG, PP, Silicone|
What’s good about this product is that it’s pretty obvious that the company tried to make it perform well. Even with its small size, this showerhead can produce strong water pressure and this is because of the design and position of the holes. To be more specific, this showerhead has 0.5 mm nozzle holes, which is twice the size of other showerheads around. So you don’t have to worry if the water is weak when you use it.
This shower kit has a transparent body so you could easily see the filter inside. Plus, it has a silicone handle that can provide you with a stronger grip when you need to separate the existing heads from the hose. You can also use this handle to hang the product for drying.
Every order of this travel shower kit comes with the following:
- 4 rubber rings
- 1 body cap
- 1 shower head
- 1 sediment filter
- 1 sediment-vitamin filter
- 1 shower body
- 1 silicon strap
- 1 case
What we particularly like about the CEBIEN is its filtration properties. It can remove rust and the impurities in the water you will be using. The filters are great for skincare as well since it can remove residual chlorine and allow you to enjoy aromatherapy.
Furthermore, this shower kit offers abundant shower spray, meaning that it won’t affect the time you’ll be washing your self. You can also use it almost anywhere that has a shower system. And the fact that it’s made of eco-friendly certified biomass plastic is a big plus.
To be honest, the CEBIEN Travel Shower Kit is the first portable showerhead we heard of. We haven’t seen or used anything similar. While there are many showerheads around, they don’t have the filter function as well as the portability of this product. So if you are looking specifically for something that you can use for your baths while travelling, this is certainly the product to beat.
What Doesn’t Work?
There isn’t anything bad about the CEBIEN Travel Shower Kit. Other than it looks like a bidet, this seems to be a good product. However, if we’re going to be nitpicky about it, we’re just not sure how many people will be willing to take their showerheads when travelling. We do see a lot of people using portable shower kits for camping and hiking. Unfortunately, this isn’t meant for that purpose.
How Much is the CEBIEN Compact Shower Kit?
The CEBIEN is a fairly affordable product with a retail price of $29 for a standard set. But if you’re looking to add filters with your package, that can cost you $49 for the set with 4 pieces of Sediment Filter. If you’re interested in the Sediment + Vitamin Filter, this can cost you around $59 for the set and 4 pieces of the filter.
The filter will be part of the recurring costs you have to consider. This will take you back for $10 for the Sediment Filter Pack (4 Pieces Each) and $20 for the Sediment + Vitamin Filter Pack (4 Pieces Each). The Sediment Filters need to be replaced after 1 month or when it’s clear that filters are too murky. You should also change it when the water pressure becomes weaker. On the other hand, a Sediment + Vitamin Filter can be used up to 7 days.
Overall, the CEBIEN Shower Kit is a good product. The idea, concept, and design are all there. It is unique, portable, and affordable too, considering it has filtering capabilities. If you love traveling or it’s part of your job, this can be a good product for you. If you have sensitive skin or if you want to avoid getting in contact with the unknown substances in water, then this is certainly a product worth checking out.
