What do people crave the most while being outdoors on a very cold day? Yes, having a warm drink. There is no doubt that many people are seen carrying travel mugs in the open air on the way to work and play. This is also one of the main reasons why tens of millions of travel mugs are being sold to consumers around the world annually.
Indeed, the desire arises from necessity as well as enjoyment. For example, in very cold weather, outdoor workers and skiers are consistently advised to drink hot beverage to avoid hypothermia and frostbite. Also, some people would rather have a warm drink than a cold one while watching an outdoor sport event, walking or biking in a park in a cold day.
It is widely known that existing travel mugs cannot keep a beverage warm very long. Consequently, the beverage (e.g. coffee) when it is cold, will not be as tasteful or stimulating as it should. No matter what kind of mug is used, a substantial portion of the drink will always be cold and lose its original, desired properties.
Here enters our novel invention, by Keith Quach and Denis Page of Ottawa, Canada, that solves the problem of keeping a beverage warm from the first drop, right down to the last. This travel mug contains a heating element and is powered by battery. Once the battery is charged, just pour the coffee, tea, hot chocolate or whatever beverage is preferred in the mug and it is ready to go.
The travel mug, with its attached battery compartment, has the shape of a regular travel mug that drops straight into the charger. The battery compartment is detachable such that the mug can be placed in the dishwasher or clean it by hand while the battery charges. In addition, the battery power can be preserved while the beverage is still fresh and hot. When it is time to warm-up the beverage, just hit the “ON” button to start the heater. The miniature lamp indicates if the heater is ON.
