From USB Brando's Winter Collection...
USB Christmas Gift Number 1: USB Eye Warmer
I bet you think this is a joke, but think again. Eyes get tired, if not cold, and heat relaxes. The USB-powered Eye Warmer gives your eyes and your mind a break they totally deserve. The Eye Warmer has a corded on-off switch and high-low settings for your heat. (Buy here)
USB Christmas Gift Number 2. USB Whirl Wind Warmer Cup
Brando carries several different USB cup warmers as well as chillers, all with extra features. But this USB cup doesn't just hold your hot beverage, it mixes it for you. No need to use a spoon, adding more clutter to your desk; just add milk and/or sweetener and let the USB Whirl Wind them together. Although not included, you may also use the Whirl Wind Warmer Cup with an AC adapter. See a short video of the cup's performance here.
USB Christmas Gift Number 3: USB Lunchbox Warmer
This is a great choice for someone who works in an office without a microwave. (Food smells don't exactly impress office visitors.) The plastic lunch box (about 7.5 x 5.5 x 2.8 inches) is surrounded top and bottom by two heaters stationed inside the thermal bag units. Heats up to 122 degrees F. An Ac Adapter is included, if you don't choose to use USB power. USB LunchBox Warmer
