USB Mini Fridge drink chiller battles booze?
Hot and bothered in the office? Then you need Hong Kong-based gadget seller Brando's latest: the USB Mini Fridge: a single-can cooler that's there for the lager in your life.
USB Mini Fridge: chill, dude
Or perhaps not. This device may actually be a secret weapon in the temperance war on liquor: while the Mini Fridge looks well able to take a standard 550ml tin containing an beverage of the over-sweetened fizzy kind, the pics suggest it's incapable to holding a crafty can of Special Brew. As for a bottle - the drinks container of the beer connoisseur - forget it.
Fridge fans will be please to know that the gadget's authenticity is exact - right down to the little light that comes on when you open the door.
Perfect for pop - lousy for lager?
Plug it in, says Brando, and five minutes later the cabinet temperature is a cool 8.5°C. It can be yours for just $33 (£17/€25). More here.
