Thermomate / lifestyle

Thermomate
Thermomate

In driving a car, Thermomate makes possible having a hot drink with a hand. Equipped with a cup having a tiny pump within, Thermomate helps the drivers open the thermal bottle, press to pump up hot water into the cup for cooling, and drink it by only one hand, with the other hand holding the steering wheel. 3 inconveniences are solved.
Of most thermal bottles:
1. The water is too hot to drink in early periods of warm keeping,
2. Frequently opening the lid fails to keep the water hot.
Of the cupped bottles:
3. Two hands are needed to finish the drinking, with one hand holding the cup and the other holding the bottle to pour the hot water.
