8th Thermos Travel Mug

Best price: 4.99 (Halfords.com)
Capacity: 400ml
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.

Special features:

Available in red or blue.
