Amazon is selling a USB heated mousemat to keep you warm in the office
As we delve deeper into November and even deeper still into winter, I'm sure the one thing we can all agree on is that work sucks a lot more than it did in summer.
Gone are the alfresco lunches and beer garden drinks after work. Now it's time to wrap up warm, commute through the rain and snow, and struggle to make it through the day as you patiently wait for the office heating to eventually kick in.
And it doesn't matter how many jumpers you wear, as it really is impossible to work at your computer with gloves on (believe me, I've tried it). But thanks to an Amazon store by the name of Black Temptation, your fingers are now saved.
Introducing the USB Heated Mouse Pad Mouse Hand Warmer with Wristguard Warm Winter (be sure to hit those keywords).
Retailing at £16.66 ($21.40 US) the USB Warmer Mouse Pad is equipped with a built-in warmer pad that can help "warm your freezing cold hand while you are at work". The pad heats up when you plug the device into your laptop/computer via the USB cable.
The snug design will also help keep your hands warm as you work away, and it comes in an array of colors; lavender, white, dark green, beige, coffee, and magenta pink.
One five-star user review reads: "Brilliant product. My hand was toastie warm without having to use the heat pad. Sitting under an air-con vent the cold air blows continually down on my hand. Using the USB heated mouse mat has solved my freezing hand problem. Thankyou"
Another happy customer types: "I have a mild form of Raynaud's and no matter what I do, once I get working at my computer my mouse hand turns to ice in minutes. But no more - this thing works."
And Black Temptation is currently running a promotion on the Heated Mouse Pads, offering 10% off when you purchase two (so there really is no excuse for your office manager not to treat you).
