How about an electric power inverter in the shape of a coffee cup?
The Coffee Cup Power Inverter looks just like a coffee cup. It sits in a car cup holder, but there the resemblance ends. Instead of giving you the jolt, it powers two 120-volt AC outlets and a USB port.
At $29.99, the Coffee Cup Power Inverter costs rather more than a standard cup of coffee, but with the recent electrical power outages we’ve had, maybe it’s an investment we should make for our next black-out. Hey, you could plug in your coffee machine!
