USB Cup Warmer
This USB Cup Warmer is an excellent bit of kit. It gets hot quickly and keeps your brew warm. How did I ever live without this?
This USB Cup Warmer is absolutely terrible. It was bought for me as a present and doesn't work at all. It's completely useless!
The USB Cup Warmer does not work at all. The plate doesn't get hot let alone keep a mug warm. It's a waste of money, waste of time, and waste of tea!
For those who have everything
The USB Cup Warmer is the perfect gift for someone who has everthing. It was bought as a present and turned out to be a great little addition to the office for a serious coffee drinker.
No more cold tea
The USB Cup Warmer is an excellent idea. My boss got one of these and I am extremely jealous. He is able to drink a cup of tea long after I have been forced to make another. Must get one.
Review of USB Cup Warmer
This is fine if used with a standard sized mug with straight sides, but not with an over sized mug with curved sides.
Cold to Hot
The USB Cup Warmer was worth every penny, as when I was camping we used this to keep our drinks hot! Recommend this to anyone who likes their drinks hot!
Very Good Product !
This USB Cup Warmer works very well. It was a birthday present and a great idea! I would highly recommend this product!
Although I bought the USB Cup Warmer as a present for my boyfriend, I decided to try it first just to make sure it worked, and it does! It is great and his tea will never get cold again!
Maybe I've just been unlucky but out of 3 of three, only one of the USB Cup Warmers worked. The other two both gave off a smell of burning plastic - not good - and didn't get hot either. The other one worked fine though!
I bought the Cup Warmer as a gift for a friend, I have never seen someone so happy. It works a treat.
Good little gadget, although I did buy 2 and one didn't work, but that might just be a one off.
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!
It works as well as you would expect. My only problem with it is that it could do with a longer cable, and to be able to accommodate larger cups and mugs. Other than that it does the job well.
I gave this as a present to my mum. So far she's really liking it as she can use it to keep her cups of tea warm while she's working. Also, it doesn't take too long to heat up which is good. I would definitely recommend this item.
Warm Feeling for this
I'm a massive tea addict, but always get caught on the phone at work so my cuppa gets cold. Found this little product and it works perfectly. I now need something which will stop so many calls at work.
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
Proper fab idea
I got this for my dad for fathers day, he loved it as hes was fed up wiv makin his cuppa then forgetin to drink it. Job done. He did tell me it was one of the best pressies i'd ever got him. small things lol.
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.
I brought this for my dad as he can't stand a cold cup of coffee but often has to take long conference calls so can't drink it quick enough, a perfect present for those who love gadgets!
I bought this for my husband who loves gadgets. He is so impressed with it he has taken it to work with him to show the lads. I hope you've got plenty in stock.
Luke warm rating
If, like me you prefer your hot drinks to be hot - then don't use one of these ! As a gift to (briefly) impress your friends then great. But remember - they will only be impressed up to the point of using it.
Great for a pint mug!
Got this for my friends Christmas as I bought him a pint mug for his birthday and he said the tea was cold by the time he drank half of it. Problem solved!!!
well worth it
It works really well and keeps the drink hotter for longer, I brought it as a gift and it was well received.
Best pressie I got
A smashing pressie from my daughter. Just what I needed as I lose count of the cups of tea that go cold while I'm surfing. Definitely the best Crimbo pressie I've had in years (except maybe my 32" telly!!)
Great gift idea for any computer geeks. I gave this my teenage son this xmas and he loved it! Brought a smile to his face which is rare!
Cool gadget that is actually HOT
Bought this for the wife, she took it to work and she loves it, as do her colleagues.
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.
Bought for hoped for future son-in-law. We approve of him, and as he's a gadget fan, should rate us above his own parents. A paultry price to pay for his life long devotion to our daughter!
Very good purchase
Having a very forgetful husband for whom endless coffee's are made, to go cold, I saw this online and decided that it was an IDEAL present for him for Christmas. He has used it already a couple of times but such a simple idea that no-one else had thought of before. Brilliant!
The best idea yet for those of us who are so busy surfing that we forget to drink our tea. This keeps the drink hot and cheery.
Simple and effective
I gave this to a writer friend who drinks lots of tea while she stares at her blank computer screen. It proved to be as welcome as it is imaginative. She even finished some chapters.
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'.
brought this item for my boyfriend who loves computer gadgets it only workes if u have a small and flat bottom cup so not really pleased with it also after 2days it stopped working so all in all not pleased with this product- disappointing!!
Not the best of purchases
It does heat up and it is a good enough looking but unless you have a flat-bottom cup, this will only marginally slow down the cooling process, it will not keep your cup warm. But it's a good gimmick grab-bag kind of gift.
