Thats why you don't place it on top of the pc to keep it warm :)

You can only get 2½ Watts from a USB device. Compare that with the 1,000 Watts minimum you'll get from a kettle. Just how warm do you think your drink will get?

exactly, also it has to heat through a ceramic mug as well. not going to happen.

Lol, could have bought a couple of beers from Tesco with that quid you just wasted.
#13
Just what I need, a cup of hot tea or coffee next to my computer/laptop. That's really safe isn't it!
Buy yourself a thermal mug with a lid and save yourself an expensive repair bill and a little electricity too by not buying this unnecessary product. Voted cold.

they had the plazma ball and lava lamps too

There are a lot of people on here now that just don't get what this website is about, it's about finding items cheaper than anywhere else and posting the deal.
I may not want or need a usb cup warmer (although my secret santa got me one, and it's never been used), but I do know they paid more than 50p for it, so I voted this deal hot.
If you personally don't like an item, then pass it by.

It's cheaper, but pointless. There is no way that you can get enough power from a USB connection to keep a drink warm in the fashion that these work in. I got given one as well. Guess what, it doesn't work.

Save yourself the 50p.

This item isn't trying to boil a litre of water to a hundred degrees. Wise up! If I see this in store I'm getting it.

Bunk! Who cares how cheap it is? If it's not worth 50p and, even worse, could result in liquid being spilt on your computer, then it's cold.

These are a complete waste of time and make absolutely no difference as to how warm your coffee stays. I got bored one day and tested how quickly a cup of coffee went cold with and with using one of these. Guess what, it made near as damit no difference (less than one degree over half an hour). Not going to go into technical reasons why these simply to not work, would just advise they are a waste of money and you'd be better off buying an insulated mug.

It doesn't work. It could be free and it would still be bad value as you have a piece of tat to landfill.
#22
Yeah, some things are still pointless waste of money regardless of how cheap they are....still I supposed it keeps those poor sods in China busy.

Well despite it only being a lukewarm deal (a bit like the tea it would kind of heat...a bit), it's much cheaper than anywhere else, thanks for your opinion on the item, it's similar to my opinion on it. But you can't get these cheaper elsewhere so I put my own opinion to one side and voted 'the deal' hot...that was my original point.
And if you were to find a deal and post it, and it was cheaper than anywhere else, no matter if I personally thought it was complete tat, I would also vote that hot.

I understand the point that you are trying to make zeroHour2 but I don't think that price is the only factor that makes something a good deal. I believe that this is quite a hazardous product as I have explained before so, even if it were free, it would still not be a hot deal.

Zerohour2 I think you miss the point totally in what is a hot deal.

If an item is useless, total crap, no matter how much a saving you are getting over the RRP or anywhere else that sells them, then it is not a hot deal.

In this instance it does not come down to personal opinion, it comes down to the point that this product does not work. You could however take your socks off and put your socks over them on your office desk, then when you finish work you may have nice warm socks to put on your feet for a nano second.

This is a cold deal, the product does not do what it is supposed to do regardless of the cost of it.

No I think you entirely miss the point of what this website is about, I think the amount of hot deals I have posted over the years I have been using this website shows I do know something about what makes a hot deal. This item is on sale everywhere at a (much) higher price, I will say it for a third time, I think it is a useless, pointless, gadget.
I would suspect 99% of them sold around the world would be bought as a 'joke' gift, just like most of the other USB powered gadgets.
Just like the one I was given which has never left it's box, it's a pointless item that was given to me due to my love for a cuppa and me spending most of my life at a PC. But someone bought it for me to raise a smile, and it worked. People will buy these regardless of what me or you think about them, and I would rather they spend 50p to buy one than £5.99 (thats how much the one I was given cost).
It may be a useless item in the real world, just like many other 'joke' items posted here (many of them reaching record heat), but it's an item well meaning people buy for others, what makes this a deal is that it's a fraction of the price most gadget places or anywhere else sell it.
I may even be tempted to use it myself once I complete the set, with USB powered pipe and heated slippers (and at least one of those are already for sale).

Go for them zeroHour2. My daughter makes a living by programming computer games but she is permanently freezing because she has to sit at her computer for ages so, a few years ago I bought her USB heated slippers. Much to my surprise they turned out to be very good and she wears them regularly during the winter when she is working. Last year I bought her USB heated fingerless gloves. If anything she says that they make her hands too warm!

Got one for xmas and can confirm it completely and utterly doesnt keep your coffee warm/hot/warmer/hotter.
On the plus side, it looks nice and shiny, has a mildly amusing name, and slightly warms the bottom of your mug.
On the minus side, its totally useless.

agree with a lot of the negative feedback, I just googled this as this out of stock, amazon, ebay , awful reviews from 9out 10 so think ill save my pennies but thanks anyway it could of been a good little item
