Yeah, it's the 12 volt coffee maker - never again be stuck on the road or sailing in your boat without a hot cup of coffee.
Just because you're travelling a far distance does not mean that you can't have a freshly-brewed hot delicious coffee drink.
Gladly, the 12-volt coffeemaker makes this possible for you. Whether you are traveling, camping, or boating, you can still enjoy your hot cup of Joe.
12-volt coffee makers are designed to plug into the cigarrete lighter/power socket of your car.
They allow you to brew several cups (5 cups, 10 cups, etc., depending on the model) of your favorite bland of coffee while driving.
(Caution: I would not suggest you to drink your coffee while driving, as this can be dangerous to you and others, just like other distractions - talking on your cell, etc..)
Unfortunately, I saw many people reporting disappointment with devices like this, since it works very slow and it takes extremely long to brew the coffee, often an hour or even more.
The "Power Hunt 12 Volt Coffeemaker" claims to solve this problem, naming it "the fastest 12V coffee-maker," that brews a full pot of coffee in less than 19 minutes.
This 10-cup coffee maker uses a special power strip system supplying 45 amperage that provides stronger power and efficiency and allows the coffee maker to brew much faster.
To use it, connect the power strip to any standard 12 volt automotive or marine battery, and plug the coffee-maker into the power strip and turn the power on.
Optionally, the power strip 12 volt coffee maker can be permanently installed in your vehicle or boat. Note: the power strip may have to be purchased separately.
Listed price on this one at the time of this writing is about $100.

There are even Power Hunt systems with 25 amp, that brew in just 3 minutes. The listed price for this at the time of this writing is about $56.
It comes with a stainless steel mug included. You can learn more on this here:
Additionally, you can obtain a whole "Portable Kitchen Lunch Kit" by Power Hunt, that includes a 12 volt coffee maker, a sandwich maker, battery & accessories.
This system may be uesful if you happen to be a lot on the road, especially when traveling to a distance.
This system, however, is much more expensive: about $370 bucks (at the time of this writing) at: http://www.amazon.com/Power-Hunt-Portable-Sandwich-Accessories/dp/B002POSV4G/ref=pd_sbs_k_4
But it offers much more than just a hot coffee on the go. In addition to brewing a fresh delicious coffee in your auto, it includes a complete kit for cooking and preparing your lunch.
You plug in the appliance and start using it. There's no installation required.
You can charge it before or even during cooking, which however will prolong the time of the cooking.
You can cook, bake, toast and grill (French Toast, pizza, cheese, sandwiches, rolls...) with this system in just minutes (it takes jsut about 3 minutes).
You can also brew your fresh coffee or heat other beverages with the 12V coffee maker. A stainless steel coffee mug is included in the pacakge.
It comes with a case, a handle and carry-strap.
