I think these cups do the opposite....make your cold drinks warm and your hot drinks cold...........
Had one. Threw it away. Leaked everywhere.

It's cheap, but for a reason. Got the Waitrose cup for £2 doesn't stay as warm but doesn't drip all down my chins either.

I know right??!

Looks great, all fancy designs and that. It's on here somewhere. Sure it's online as well as in-store, if you don't want to feel out of place.

Went for the black one. Problem is really uncomfortable to drink from due to the thread for holding the lid on.

I don't have a bother but drink through the lid.

Needs me a sippy cup to minimize the coffee dripping down my chins and onto my shirt whilst driving.

these cups from wilco are great they will start leaking when the air hole gets blocked which happens more often if your drinking tea, my last cup i actually drilled a slightly bigger hole which meant less unblocking.
OK if you drink your drink immediately, but not if you want it hot/cold for longer periods due having a plastic interior. Spend a little more and get one with an aluminium interior which will keep your drink hotter/colder for much much longer.
I saw my nearby PoundSaver has a red transparent plastic exterior with stainless steel mug for £2. It's smaller than the Wilko I guess. Should have taken picture.

Will it? That's still not a vacuum flask, so the heat will be conducted straight through to/from the outside. In fact it'll probably be slightly worse because metal is a better conductor of heat than plastic.

"Keep your cold drinks cold and your hot drinks hot" - yeah right. They aren't even able to say "insulated" because it's not.
Seriously. Does anyone know of a travel mug that. A)doesn't leak, B) stays reasonably warm C) fits in a standard car cup holder, D) doesn't make your brew taste like pond water. Willing to pay the price for one that ticks all of these boxes.

Yes 100% it will. Great science lesson but total nonsense !!

Previous Wilko version was an aluminium tube within an aluminium case costing £2.50. Hot drink still hot after 2-3 hours and drinkable. This version, luke warm after 1 hour. Sod the science, I prefer facts !!!

Well yes - you've expanded the description from what you said before: "with an aluminium interior" - if it has a double skin with insulation in between, then it's bound to perform better!

Nothing not factual about what I said.

The plastic one is double skinned too, plastic tube inside an aluminium case. It's rubbish at keeping drinks warm, let alone hot...like I said sod the science ;-)

Yes, but I said with insulation in between. Without that, the science agrees with your observations!

Neither have insulation in between ! Your argument is flawed. I have both cups, tried and tested, this one is crap ! You seem to assume lots of things incorrectly !
Good point. If the air gap is small enough, it will act as an insulator - not as good as a vacuum, but better than nothing. The same is used in wine coolers (plastic or metal).

I still maintain that two layers of aluminium sandwiched together will be no better off than one plastic and one aluminium layer, of a similar thickness, sandwiched together.
