The news station informed Lisa that the S’well bottle was claiming to hold cold drinks for 24 hours, and they claimed that the cold drinks would still be cool for a full day. Next, Lisa was told that the bottle maker claimed to be able to hold warm drinks, and the warm drinks would stay warm for up to 12 hours. Lisa made it clear to the news that seeing is believing, and she was skeptical.
The claim regarding the S’well bottle’s ability to keep things cold was put to the test first against regular plastic bottle. Lisa filled the S’well bottle and the plastic bottle with ice water, temps were taken of both and both of the bottles were kept unrefrigerated. The initial temps were 40 degrees for the S’well and 48 degrees for the plastic bottle. After a full 24 hours, the news team met back up with Lisa, and the plastic bottle was 84 degrees, but the S’well remained cool at 65 degrees and received Lisa’s approval.
The news team decided to test the heat claim themselves, and they filled the S’well bottle up with hot coffee that was over 168 degrees. They measured the temperature at 6 hours, and the coffee was over 142 degrees. The coffee was tested at the 12 hour mark and read a warm 126 degrees. The S’well works as advertised and can be ordered online starting at $25 dollars on up to $45 dollars depending on the size. The S’well bottle works well.
