If only the single serve coffee we drink every morning could also charge our iPhone, iPad, and various other electronics in the car while we travel. Wait a second - we think we may have found the solution. The PowerCup power inverter provides 200 Watt Continuous power and provides 120V AC power from any auto 12V power socket. It has 1 AC socket and 1 USB port. We knew coffee had power - but this much power is overwhelming!

Our Canadian correspondent SH recently reported that more and more pods are starting to make an appearance in specialty shops across Canada after the introduction of the original SunCafe pod brewer a year or 2 ago and one of the brands which quickly started popping up was Kienna.
They're a Canadian coffee roasting company based out of Calgary and since it's known that pod brewers aren't as common throughout Canada as they are in USA, the company decided to create their own pod adapter for machines which WERE widely available across Canada... Keurig K-Cup brewers. Dubbed the Kienna Kup, this adapter allows you to use any 8 gram pod (and MAYBE some 10 gram pods) with any Keurig K-Cup brewer. It should be noted that 12 gram pods & ESE espresso pods are NOT compatible with this adapter.

This portable cupholder can attach to any desk, table, or shelf. You can use it to store your drink or small objects. We personally prefer the drink option, and could see this being a pretty amazing accessory at several locations around our house and office. It's also nice that the Drinklip actually holds the cup. How many times have you spilled coffee at work because you've knocked over your coffee cup? We can count at least a dozen times.
