Wasn't sure whether to put these in Miscellaneous or not, but since vacuum flasks and Thermoses are sort of a kettle substitute for when there's no outlet, I thought they might fit here.

I think the Camel variety are interesting because of how strongly they are associated with Hong Kong. Most vacuum flasks don't seem to have that sort of connection anymore -- a Thermos or Stanley might be made anywhere nowadays.

Anyone have any experience with these?

Edit*: Nice link on them by Industrial History HK -- https://industrialhistoryhk.org/31576-2/
