What do you use that works?

Could sombody recommend a thermo "Go" coffee cup that actually fits in to the cup holders of the X-Trail. I find most thermo cups are too big in diameter, or too tall that they actually interfere with the A pillar.

I have a nice collection of Starbucks Stainless Steel thermo Go Mugs, but none of them fit due to diameter or height.

Seems those cup holders were designed totally around those typical 500ml water bottles.

Thanks


PS:

This one definitely does not fit :rolleyes:

Here are some I have tried.



The 2 on the left fit well, however they are a bit smaller than I would like in capacity. They are 70mm (2.75") diameter at the lower bulge (insertion) point & 145mm (5.7") tall. They are from Starbucks.

The cup on the right is one of my favorite mugs and is the capacity I like, but it's a bit tight and a bit too tall. It is 78.5mm (3.01") in diameter at the lower bulge and 191mm (7.52") tall.

The Stainless one with the handle? Fuggettaboutit....


Fits, but is a bit small in capacity.


Snug fit, and too tall, must sit at an angle


I know this isn't really important stuff, but thought it would be fun to see what everyone uses. I know I will continue the quest for the perfect Stainless Steel Thermo mug :cool:

I wonder if Nissan carries these Nissan Stainless Tumblers? They must.... :)



They look like they could fit, unless its the same size as my Starbicks Stainless. I know Nissan makes some very nice stainless thermos as well.

Hey, I believe I saw a very similar one at my dealership the other day. I think it was $24.99 CDN but don't recall the word "Stainless" printed on the mug. They also had a whole bunch of other Nissan accessories (watches, pens, golf balls), most of which were overpriced. You should check out your dealership ...

You're on a losing streak with your go-cups, Viper. I have a cupboard full of them and they all fit. I even have a half-litre Thermos bottle that fits. Canadian Tire sells a nice one that's stainless inside and out, has a high-mounted handle and a narrowing at the bottom to fit in the holder. Also, Wally Mart sold me some nice Thermos-brand tumblers that are also lined in stainless steel. Both of these can be had for under $10.

STX, I called my Nissan Dealer and the only travel mug they had lsited in the catalog was a Copper colored Nissan thermo mug... Can you believe that? The Parts guy and I both with in disbelief :rolleyes:

Avery, I went to Wally and Canuck tire today, however I did not see anything I really liked at either store. I must be a loser ;)

I did find the dimensions for the Nissan Thermo Bottle/Mug



It is 2.65" diam x ~7" tall. I think it will work well so I ordered one from MEC yo see how it works. I was going to get 2 however I do want to make sure we like them :thumbup:

That other Nissan Tumbler above also fits, its at the max for allowable height I think as it does come in contact with the A-Piller if not careful while putting it in, or while in place.

I'll take pictures once the Thermo Bottle is in.

Have a look in HERE and choose whatever you like. :thumbup:

I'm using one of the Thermos products (not the nissan range) and it fits perfectly.

Humm, it would seem both sites are the same in pricing and at check-out, or am I missing something?

Prices are in US...? I assume :rolleyes:

Conclusion of the Travel Mug Analysis: ;)

The Nissan Thermos Bottle arrived today and I set to promplty test it out. It is of beautiful construction. It fit perfectly into the X-Trail's cup holder areas, both front and back holders. It states with the sipping lid in place it will keep the drink hot for 6 hours. I brewed a pot of coffee and after prewarming the mug filled it with Fresh Sumatra coffee, all the while sipping and taking pictures. It has been a good 1 & 1/2 hours since, and the coffee is still as hot as when I poured it in, (Very Hot).

The cap is threaded on and the whole assembly becomes a thermos bottle that is leak proof. It's actually pretty cool as you can sip some coffee, put the cap on, toss it in your pack upside down, pull it out much later for a quick sip. It feels perfect and luxurious in hand, and is the right volume for me. Drinking from it feels very comfortable, as it has a deep well that feels very secure, with out the fear of being splashed in the face with hot coffee. This is one of those "Highly Recommended", must have BingTech toys :)

I most definitely will be buying 2 more of these :)








I took this shot to show how it matches the decor :cool:

My Titanium Charge Leatherman arrived also, but the Stainless Steel Thermo Bottle/Mug is what has my attention for now :thumbup:

Here you go Viper, another happy customer of Thermos :)

I'll be dropping by for a cup of coffee sometime and we can sit in your exy and have a good chat:)
That would be cool, what a nice image you paint Jalal :thumbup: You're welcome anytime mate!

What would be even cooler is if I could visit Australia, we could have coffee in your X-Trail as you show me the great offroading sights... Yeah, yeah, that would work too :cool: :cool: :cool:

Sorry Marc, yes I was only joking, but who knows? I have relatives in Toronto, so I might come for a visit one day (I miss the snow) :) and you can bet that if I do travel to Canada, I'll catch-up with you guys.

Of course you guys are welcome to visit Australia anytime.

Viper: Just keep that coffee nice and warm for me until then..thanks LOL :)
