About

 
             The primary role of iLIQ is to get the perfect temperature of hot tea, straight away. It is ideal for those who want the temperature of hot drinks to be drinkable immediately. ILIQ  has been created for those people who love precision and reliability, consistently. The ILIQ is great for parents who wish to give their children tea at a drinkable temperature.

If a proper temperature is the key to enjoying hot drinks, then why to just satisfy ourselves with just good results when actually you can get the best one quickly and safe? 

  • Saves time - cools down hot beverages 5 times faster  
  • Prevents scalding of your mouth ("IARC believes hot beverages promoted cancer presumably with a repetitive thermal injury." Source: www.acsh.org)
  • Setting of desired temperature 
  • LED-Display shows the exact temperature
  • Acoustic alert
  • Works with every common type of cup and glass
  • Rechargeable Li-ion battery with level indicator
You will not need to put some ice cubes in your tea or a little amount of cold water in order to cool it down. No more unexpected results. You would quickly get the perfect tea temperature.

iLIQ is an appliance, which can cool your hot drinks in a glass or cup quickly and it is around five times faster than cooling it naturally. The iLIQ shows the correct temperature of your beverage through an LED indicator. An acoustic alert informs you when the desired temperature is reached. 

A big THANK YOU to everyone who pledged.

The technology behind iLIQ is fairly straightforward. The ideally-shaped air current, which uses a patent-pending technical solution, accelerates the process of evaporation. During the evaporation, a small amount of your drink changes from liquid to gas. When evaporation occurs, the energy removed from the vaporized liquid will reduce the temperature of the liquid, resulting in evaporative cooling. Heat transfer by forced convection guarantees even temperature of the liquid in the cup.

Cooling characteristic varies depending on the cup used. The diagram shows the characteristic when using a cup with inner diameter 9.5cm and water volume 300ml.

You need only to put the iLIQ over the beverage in your glass, turn the device on and let the aerating or cooling process continue to your desired level. Finally, you can look forward to drinking the best wine and the best tea every single day.

In the mornings, we often feel like we lack time because our lives go by faster and faster. We do not enjoy our tea or coffee before we leave the house. Why? Well, we do not have time to wait till our drink cools down. In order to save some time, we learned to lug around heavy to-go-cups or to guzzle drinks while they are still too hot, which is not good for our body. In light of this, we asked ourselves this question: is this really the only way? So, we decided to look for a technical solution, and that was when the iLIQ idea was born.

Children often have different thermal sensations than adults. When using the iLIQ, you can easily adjust the optimal drinking temperature for your children.

Each tea requires unique water temperature to complement the taste and smell of the tea leaves. Utilizing iLIQ, you can get quickly the perfect water temperature before you make your drink of tea.
 

"We have developed this innovation to ensure that every cup of tea you have is the very best one you have ever had."
 

 
             Using iLIQ, you can aerate wine directly in your glass.
 

 
             "There are a few particular compounds that are reduced with aeration, such as sulfites, which are added to wine to prevent oxidation and microbial activity but can smell like burnt matchsticks, and sulfides, which are naturally occurring but can remind you of rotten eggs or onion skins. Ethanol is also a highly volatile compound, and a wine that smells too much like rubbing alcohol when you first open it might lose the ethanol note and become more expressive with some aeration."
             Source: https://www.winespectator.com
 

You can reduce the alcohol content in your wine (by applying the device longer time) without sacrificing the flavour. Less alcohol means a reduced hangover. iLIQ is all about optimisation, and if you need a little less punch in your favourite drink, this is how to get it.

The gadget can be used simply and is put onto a wide glass.
 

Reducing characteristic vary strongly depending on the glass used. The diagram shows the characteristic when using a glass with inner diameter 9,7cm and wine volume 150ml.

             The chart indicates ordinary values of alcohol reduction in red wine. Obviously, these features can work with different variations of wine. The evaporation of the alcohol removes the heat from the liquid. Thus, besides reducing the alcohol content, the treated wine is also cooled. The process of alcohol reduction using iLIQ is also patent-pending.
