@Kyeh@onae@PooltoyWolf@werehatrack the description and reviews on Amazon don’t mention that, so I’d guess no…if it did at all u know they’d be hyping it. It’s just a simple slide-to-close lid (which is spill-proof but not leak/waterproof), so that wouldn’t keep much carbonation in.
@Kyeh@onae@PooltoyWolf@TimW I’ve seen things that claimed to be able to reseal a can in the past, all the way back to the '80s, and while they’d all reduce or prevent liquids from escaping once the beverage was flat, none would keep the carbonation in. In fact, this would be a first if it can even maintain the seal of the liquids while the contents are still carbonated. The extra volume of the inside of the container is going to bleed the pressure down, and the carbonation off, no matter what else happens - and a partially emptied can has more volume for carbonation to escape the liquid. The pressure in those unopened cans is typically in the range of 15 to 25 psi at fridge temp, 30 to 50 psi at room temp, and can spike much higher when agitated. That’s actually a lot of force on the lid of the container.
@Kyeh@onae@TimW@werehatrack I might be a niche case but I could honestly care less about the carbonation, at least over the long term (several hours). I’m primarily concerned about the ability to keep the liquid beverage confined to the can under normal use conditions (bumps, sloshing, etc.)
@PooltoyWolf The can just sits snug against the lid, there’s no positive seal, and the slide-cover isn’t liquid-tight either. Reviews mention that a few drops of beverage (at a minimum) escape into the container with each use, which confirms that they reduce internal spillage pretty well but aren’t really sealed. I’d expect them to be decent at keeping the drink from getting all over everything as long as it doesn’t get knocked over and not immediately retrieved. They’re pretty much just like most of the vacuum-insulated tumblers with the slide-open lids, except these are intended to have a can under the lid.
@Kyeh@onae@PooltoyWolf@TimW@werehatrack I have the cankeeper from a prior Meh and it is not liquid tight, more like splash proof. It does insulate, but not really any better than can koozie. It is more troublesome to use than a can koozie too. So unless you are trying to hide the label of your can, not really recommended.
@Kyeh Depends on his mood. Sometimes he is playful and then other times he wants to be left alone. He occasionally likes it when I tickle him in the stomach.
It’s difficult to catch him on video because, once he sees my phone, he stops doing whatever it is I want to get a video. For example, he has a nice fluffy bed in his cage and it’s so cute when he’s sleeping in it. But as soon as I take out my phone to snap a video or still photo, he immediately jumps out of his bed. I’ve had him for 10 or 11 years now and never been able to get that photo.
@craigcush@haydesigner The ones from Reduce hold more beverage (but not the bottle or can it comes in), and can be had for less than this regularly. Oh, and their lids seal pretty well, too. (There are others that seal tight. I have some.)
I got one of each the last time Meh offered these a little over a year ago. Product seems decent enough, but beware if Meh hasn’t learned their lesson about shipping these. They sent me both in just a thin padded envelope with nothing between them, which led to them getting dinged up and scratching each other all to hell. I will say they did refund me, but still something to keep in mind, especially if your plan is to order multiples for gifts or something like that.

I bought these and they arrived a few days ago. Got one for each of my adult sons. We went boating yesterday, and they REALLY like them! Honestly when I saw what it was after I opened the package, it looked pretty gimmicky, but my (engineer) son is actually very impressed. They used them for hard seltzer cans (tall and skinny) and regular beer cans and tall beer cans (IPA) and they stayed leak proof and cold while on the boat in hot weather. I actually came back on here to see if I could get more, because everyone who was on the boat yesterday wants one!
