Travel cup test - 8th Thermos Travel Mug
Diameter of base: 66mm
For: Solidly made; looks good
Against: Expensive considering its average performance
Nothing special – after two hours the temperature had plunged to 48C, which was lower than the much cheaper Thermos Thermocafe 2060. Not watertight, either.
Ease of operation:
Like the cheaper Thermocafe 2060, you simply slide back a flap on the lid to take a swig. However, the lid and flap felt more solid than on the cheaper model.
Very expensive given the average performance.
Has a plastic – rather than brushed metal – outer case, but generally the Thermos felt durable, although the handle felt a bit flimsy.
Available in red or blue.
