Heating Coil 热得快 (rè dé kuài)

Similar SGS Card:
Nil. This is a new weapon. It is somewhat similar to Feathered Fan 朱雀羽扇.

Card description:
We don't use this very often in Singapore, but I hear that this is a very common item in China. The heating coil I am familiar with is buried deep inside an electric kettle, and that's it, but the heating coil that this card is referring to is easily portable and you can stick it into a pot of milk or coffee. I wonder if the folks reading this in other countries think i'm an idiot for even having to describe this, but believe me its probably impossible for find a heating element in this form in Singapore. Find out why in the Trivia section.

Weapon ability:
When equipped, you can regard any of your on hand cards as being re-suited.

Footnote:
"This little copper tube that produces both hot water and short-circuits the entire block, truly deserves a love-hate relationship with us."

"这个制造热水同时也是制造全楼停电的小铜管,真的让人又爱又恨。"

Trivia:
In 2008, four female students in a Shanghai university jumped to their deaths while escaping a dorm fire. Investigations reveal that the fire was started by a malfunctioning heating coil. The instances of "power-trips" and "short circuits" are very common when these heating coils are used. This is the reason why something like this would never appear in Singapore, because the authorities are very stringent on safety standards for electrical appliances. I'm not complaining though, since I really don't see how such a heating coil can bring me much more convenience than my regular electric kettle. Ho hum!!

Number of cards:
1
