An Australian business is selling a one-of-a-kind portable hotplate that is powered through a USB port.
The Hotline Hub product is ideal to use while camping, at work and in hotels that don’t supply kitchen appliances.
The product only takes 20 seconds to heat up and comes with a protective hard-shell case.

‘It works better than a microwave,’ one person said online as they gave the product five out of five stars.
‘Great idea, it’s so convenient,’ another said, while a third added: ‘Works great all weekend!’
The hotplate is currently on sale for $69.99 instead of $75 and can be purchased online.

But while the item may seem convenient, the amount of power it generates may not be ideal to boil large pots of water.
Other retailers including Catch and Kogan also sell electric portable hotplates for half the original price.
This isn’t the first unique portable device to capture shoppers’ attention. In late August mums were raving over a $19 portable USB blender from Kmart.
The clever idea first surfaced on social media after a woman shared two videos using the device to the Kmart Mums Australia Facebook group.
‘If you haven’t already, get yourself the $19 USB blender – perfect for cocktails,’ Louise wrote.
In the video, she adds an alcoholic beverage to a berry-flavoured drink, pops the lid on and blends the cocktail together.
