Very glad I got it. NOT!

The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because it will heat up the liquid too hot if you leave it plugged in too long. This is not much of a drawback because it probably also means that you don't have to wait long for cooled off coffee to heat back up. And it is very easy to unplug the wire from the handle. And besides, it keeps the liquid hot even unplugged for a long time.
If you commute and like to drink coffee, this is a great thing to have.
Very important update. I got a big surprise today while driving and drinking my coffee. The coffee was getting a bit too hot which should be ok if you can unplug the cup from the charger. Guess I waited just a little too long: the rubber/plastic around the cup plug in hole had melted. When I tried to unplug the cup it wouldn't unplug. I pulled harder wondering what the heck was going on and I ended up pulling the plug completely out of the cup and the wires inside the cup (which were now exposed and, presumably, still live). I had to bend down and unplug the plug from the "cigarette" lighter plug; all while I was driving in the city.
The only reason I give it 2 stars is because if you can avoid melting the wiring, it works pretty good.
