*'''November 2013: Study of water treatment in Kenya demonstrates the effectiveness of the WAPI''' - [[Bob Metcalf]], research microbiologist, and [[FOTO]] worked together on a study to compare results of various water treatment chemicals to the [[WAPI]] water pasteurization indicator used with a [[CooKit]] solar cooker. One finding of note is that the WAPI, when used with the CooKit, was 100% effective in producing negative results for E.coli, while the WaterGuard (3 drops/liter) method was only effective in most cases.

*'''December 2103:''' [[Robert Nepper]] reports that they have made improvements to the SuperWAPI, which features a heat resistant stainless steel cable. North Star Devices' WAPI is the only WAPI offered as a hammer together design, not requiring heat sealing. The SuperWAPI is also now available as a kit.
