Best price: 4.99 (Halfords.com)
Capacity: 400ml
Diameter of base: 66mm

For: Solidly made; looks good
Against: Expensive considering its average performance
**Overall::**

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.

Buying:

Very expensive given the average performance.

Quality:

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.
