USB Cup Warmer & 4-port Hub review
Coffee and computers were made for each other, so you can keep awake during late-night online shopping trips or gaming sessions. This USB gadget is designed to keep your beverage warm.
Touching the hot plate while it’s on tells you immediately that generating heat isn’t a problem, and there’s a four-port hub in the base as well. It’s only USB 1.1, but it can still be of use for items like mice, keyboards and printers.
To test it, we made two teas in identical cups and placed one on the warmer. After a while, there was no noticeable difference in the temperature. We even got out a thermometer and saw that the warmed cup was only 20C hotter.
Overall, it’s just a bit of fun. If the USB hub would be useful, though, it’s worth considering.
