5 insulated water bottles

In a tropical country, you may find yourself craving for a cold beverage, and what is better to have than a insulated water bottle which keeps your drink cold and ice still intact after hours of carrying it around. This can be said if you are in a cold country – a hot beverage and its heat kept retained in a bottle for long time.

What does it mean to be insulated?

Already popular in the market, insulated water bottles does the job. Also known as thermos flasks or vacuum flasks, work by using a double-walled container that creates a vacuum between the inner and outer walls. This vacuum acts as an insulating layer, preventing heat from being transferred between the inside and outside of the bottle.

Since there is no air in the vacuum, there is no heat transfer through conduction or convection. This means that the contents of the bottle can stay hot or cold for an extended period without being affected by the surrounding temperature.

Below are 5 water bottles that not only does is job, but also looks good.
