Prevent these blech situations by getting yourself a USB coffee warmer! All it takes to warm your coffee is just a connection to a working USB slot and voila! You don’t ever have to have an unintentionally cold coffee ever again.
Mini Smart Plug
The smart plug can switch electronic devices on or off by only using your phone or computer instead of you having to physically move to turn the switch.
