The Stanley cup is the whole lot: Your chilly drink can now survive a automobile fireplace. It holds numerous liquid, so that you’re at all times able to hydrate. They’re straightforward to hold, and so they’re fairly; Stanley is at all times releasing new, alluring colours. However there’s one factor that the Stanley cup will not be: gamer-friendly.
The Stanley cup’s deadly flaw is that it’s not leakproof — one thing you would possibly anticipate from a $50 water bottle. Anybody who’s ever performed a PC recreation with a beverage seemingly is aware of this state of affairs: You’re peacefully looking for out sources in Lego Fortnite when your mouse hand will get somewhat too near your drink, spilling its contents onto your now scorching keyboard. It’s a catastrophe! Greatest-case state of affairs is that your keyboard has to spend an evening in a bucket of rice; worst case is you’re pulling out your pockets for a brand new keyboard.
Due to its leaking drawback — which is a sizzling matter on TikTok — the Stanley cup will not be gamer-safe, which is a devastating loss to me, an individual who was seeking to get a water bottle that matched my cute gaming setup.
Past players, sports activities coaches are literally waging a warfare in opposition to Stanley cups. (Properly, at the least one in all them is.) In a viral TikTok video that’s been seen 2.5 million occasions and has hundreds of feedback, a basketball coach exhibits off the array of Stanley cups that her crew brings to observe… and which spill everywhere in the bench and flooring. Not protected! (I attempted to carry a Stanley-like cup to hockey observe, and it was not very best there both — I couldn’t attain the straw by means of my helmet’s cage. A devastating rookie mistake.)
In the event you’re in search of a vessel to drink your G Gas out of, I’ve acquired you. (I can’t say no to a stylish water bottle, so I’ve numerous expertise.) A basic Nalgene? Not as cute, however useful and spill-proof. There’s additionally the Hydro Flask with the foldable straw cap, so you’ll be able to sip — cute and spill-proof. My guess on the subsequent it water bottle, nonetheless, is Owala’s FreeSip; the colours are good, and, crucially, it doesn’t leak.
