Topic: Nissan Problems (6 msgs / 116 lines)
1) From: Aaron Scholten
Hello everyone:
I have an issue with my Nissan Travel Mug.  It's the one that is spill 
proof with the twist on cap and the handle on it.   First off I 
absolutely LOVE this thing.  It keeps coffee hot hot HOT all day and is 
great for the tool pouch or whatever when you need to carry a drink and 
have it possibly be put into any position imaginable during transport.
My problem is, the mug seems to have lost it's vaccuum or something 
somehow as when I pour hot coffee into it now,within a few minutes the 
outside is very warm to the touch and it doesn't keep the coffee warm 
more than an hour or so at most.  It's still airtight when the lid is 
sealed but no longer is a 'thermos'.....  any ideas how i might be able 
to fix or do something with this.
I am not sure if they have a warranty on them or not.  I was going to 
put it into one of my vaccuum sealer jugs and turn on the vac pump to 
see if I could siphon out the air that got into it, and possibly reseal 
it but unfortunately the cup is just a tiny bit too big to fit into my 
biggest vaccuum jug so no go with that idea....
has anyone else had any similar problems with theirs?

Isn't the stainless steel just a big heatsink?  I'm not sure how it could
lose that property.  I'm assuming you are preheating your mug with very hot
water before pouring in the coffee.  Is the mug exposed to colder
temperatures than it has been in the past?  If Nissan does have an
explanation for this, please keep us posted.  I NEED my leak proof mugs.
Take care,

Dunk the mug in cold water, fill it, is air seaping out around where the
plastic meets the metal?  If so the seal inside is broken, mug still works
just cools off a bit quicker, it happens well to any of them over time.
Usually it is the result of being dropped and the glue seal cracks.

Running those type of insulated cups through a dishwasher will fail the 
seal also.  Seal fails, moisture enters - insulation value gone....

Oh yeah... Like rich just said... You need to hand wash these or expect them
to die.  (I expect them to die eventually, as I have no time to actually
hand wash them most days.)
