Time and temp: ToullGo Electric Coffee & Cup Warmer

An intelligent option, ToullGo's warmer can sense when there is weight on the warmer. When it's empty the plate will not heat up, stick a cup on it, and you're good for temperatures up to 60 degrees Celsius. This also stands apart from the competition with a timer — the shutdown mode can be programmed to switch off anytime between one and nine hours.

The low profile coaster is wipe-clean with a glass surface and powered by the mains, so you don't have to sacrifice a USB port to use it.
