The Thanko USB-Powered Paper Cup Warmer is for Starbucks-Addicts

Thanko USB Warmer

Caffeine can become a very real addiction, and most of us are just skirting the line for it to become a problem. If you are one of those people, you understand how important it is to get and preserve your morning coffee for as long as possible. That way you’re not tempted to get a new cup every time the remnants of the last one goes cold.

Since putting your Starbucks in the microwave is only saved for last resorts, you could always put a little money down for this Thanko USB-Powered Paper Cup Warmer. This plugs into your computer or car charger, and can keep your drink warm for up to 4 hours. To make sure nothing catches on fire, it has an auto-shutoff to prevent your drink from reaching a temperature that would leave you with third degree burns on your tongue.

The cable is 39.4” long, and it only weighs 2.8 ounces, making it easy to use wherever you end up bringing your coffee to. Once plugged in, you’ll only have to wait 4 minutes for it to reach a degree high enough to affect your beverage. You can even keep a power bank handy for emergency drink-warming situations. This is a $26 purchase, and while it can heat up drinks that are already in a container, it is said to not put drinks directly into this device.
