Thanko USB Bottle Cooler

Gadget retailer Thanko today listed its dual-mode USB Bottle Cooler and Warmer. While such devices have existed in the past, most have preserved only one temperature: Thanko says its new device uses a Peltier system to both cool and heat drinks, either transferring heat to the holder or drawing it outside through a vent. The machinery can maintain temperatures as low as 45F for soda or other chilled drinks or as high as 122F for coffee. Any computer that can supply five volts of power through its USB port will work, the company says. A metal cup is presupplied with Thanko's cooler, which exports to the US for $42.
