not so hot :-(
I got this gadget as I am an avid tea drinker, however, due to work constraints I sometimes forget that I have actually got a cuppa on the go. I was however, a little dissapointed with how hot my USB warmer gets. It has a warning on it not to touch the metal plate but it never really seems to get that warm. My regular mug is quite thick walled and may not be the best mug to use on this device, perhaps a single skinned metal camping mug may be better (yet to find and try one!) Also, not all mugs will fit comfortably on this - the plate size is no biger than 2.5" (8cm ish). Overall, good for a giggle, but not scorching!
At last, a hot cup of coffee
As an author I find that when the muse strikes and I am typing away, my tea or coffee sits on my desk and gets cold. Not any more! This little device plugs into the laptop and keeps drinks warm for an hour. It saves money because I am no longer pouring away half drunk cups of coffee. A great idea!
Plastic, flimsy and small.
This is a really plastic, lightweight device. Feels incredibly cheap. Although I've bought it as a present, I'm too embarrassed to give it to my loved one. Also, be aware that when it says cup warmer - that is really ALL that will fit on it (even though the image suggests it can accommodate a mug). I bought one of the hot/cold mugs on here and it doesn't quite fit on the warming plate. I really am disappointed. I expected better from IWOOT; but maybe it's just the copywriters' fantastic use of words that convinced me everything on this website is fantastic.
my dad loved this
i was looking for ages to get my dad a useful and different present for his birthday and i found this wow, when it arrived my dad opened it and it took him a few minutes to work out what it was, but then to watch his face light up when he finaly realised his beloved cup of tea could be kept warm while he was playing his favorite games on the computer he was so excited, he was only disapointed that it didnt come with a programme to show my mum how to make a cup of tea and bring it to him but you cant have everything all in all he was delighted with his new gadget
It's changed :-(
I bought one of these a couple of years ago for my PC at work (the one pictured above) and it worked a treat! As a result of this, I recently bought a second one for my PC at home, only to find that the model they ship out has changed in the mean time. The new one has one big problem - it's too small! A vast majority of normal mugs are too big for the hot plate, whereas the old one they used to ship was big enough for all mugs. Please IWOOT, go back to your original supplier for these as the ones you ship out now are just not as good as before.
bestest xmas pressie i ever got someone!
i saw this whilest browsing for xmas pressie ideas, and had to get it for my dad! when he works at home on his computer he'd make a coffee and that would be it! then he'd moan its cold cos he's been busy and i'd moan that he's wasting coffee! (being a man he wouldnt blast it in microwave!). now he plugs it in and coffee never goes cold! he's happy because he can make a coffee last an hour or so and i'm happy because i'm spending less on coffee!! thank you guys! i love this place xxxxxxxxxxxx
we needed these!!!
With 3 laptop addicts in the house and more tea/coffee cups in and out of the microwave, the USB Cup Warmer is definitely the best thing since 'sliced bread'! Six laptops between them and always doing something is a recipe for drinks constantly liable to go cold without the warmers.
What a purchase!
I first thought that purchasing a USB Cup warmer would be a bit... odd. I then purchased it, and if I'm being honest, I can't live without it! No longer do I sit there in the office, and gag on cold cups of tea! It keeps it just at the right temperature, so now I can have a fresh, hot cuppa sitting at my desk waiting for me, while I'm playing fussball with my colleagues... Oh, I mean 'working'.
