  1. Never ever I'll buy a SanDisk USB stick again. They get so uncomfortably hot that I'm not trusting its reliability over a longer time. I bought a cheaper stick and it barely heats up sitting idle in the USB port. The SanDisk one could be used to boil water, metaphorically speaking. I have two SanDisk sticks and this sample size gives me confidence to make this judgement not to buy anything from SanDisk ever again.

      Methaphorical challenge accepted. Now I just need to find a non-ultra-slim that gets rediculously hot to boil something with.

        1. @adiwan I am not going to use a weak 5V line to boil stuff. I mean I think with 100% conversion I'd be able to put 2.5 W into my water. Meaning 1 DTU would take approximately 25 seconds per teaspoon of water. So if I go from room temperature to boiling I would need to spend approx 40 minutes on half a cup of water.

          And that is just due to the limitations of the USB line.
