Best Travel Mug

What is the best travel mug?



A recent comparative study conducted in August 2013 has come to answer that question.

This study compared the most commonly utilized types of travel mugs and water bottles, to what is known as the advanced generation travel mugs (Brand Name: Easy & Cool).

The results proved that the advanced generation travel mugs were superior. They were able to keep the drinks cold for up to 15 hours and hot drinks for at least 7 hours, while conventional travel mugs and water bottled underperformed.


These are some of the extracts from the study:

Title: Advanced Generation travel mugs vs. conventional mugs and water bottles.

A comparative Study. 

August 2013 by Beuses et al.

Summary:
The advanced generation travel mugs (Easy & Cool) demonstrated superiority by sustaining the temperature of cold liquids for more than 15 hours when conventional mugs could not exceed the 2 hours mark.
In the second part of the study, advanced generation travel mugs also proved to keep the temperature of hot liquids beyond 7 hours while conventional mugs could not maintain hot liquids warm for more than one hour.


Methods:

Cold Liquids Arm. Assessment of temperature retention.

7 different travel mugs where added cold water at 38 degrees F (3C) and their lids where closed immediately after.

Water temperature was measured in each travel mug and water bottle every hour for a period of 11 hours and the findings recorded.

Hot Liquids Arm. Assessment of temperature retention.

Hot water at 174 degrees F (78 C) was added to four different travel mugs designed to hold hot liquids.

Temperature of the water was measured every hour for a period of 5 hours and results were recorded.
