Great gadget. Much better than the plug in mugs that fail quickly.
However, I had continued to wonder why it is not sold in stores in CA. On my 3rd use, I was bored and read the packaging. The element contains lead. I was heating lead in my drink, soup, etc. I believe it's been since the 1970's that not only can lead paint not be used in homes, but no cooking utensils or containers or serving dishes can have lead. The online description did not mention the heating element has lead in it. However the package does.
It would have cost more to send back, than the item cost.
Leaving out a material fact which has a cumulative affect on customers' health is a deceptive business practice. I will not purchase from this vendor again and would have given zero stares, if it had been possible.
I plugged this RPBH-012 heater into my 13.8V Pyramid power supply. The supply provides a car battery cigarette lighter outlet to run car appliances that use such plugs, and the power supply runs off the wall current. I measured the amps, wall current Voltage and average wattage of this thing with a Kill-O-Watt meter. Using the adapter at 119.9V, the power supply drew 322 Watts from the house current to run this at 3.03 amps (on the 119.9 V wall AC current), with the Kill-O-Watt tester interfaced between the power supply and wall current.
That proves the heater element will take as much juice as your wiring permits, so getting another heater won't go any faster in the car, you need a new cigarette lighter connection (which also has a fuse that is around 15 amps which is far below what a car battery delivers for example during cold cranking it is several hundred amps).Read more ›
The Road Pro brings the water back up to tea making temp in about two minutes.
Takes about five minutes to heat a cold mug to almost boiling. It serves my purpose.
