OK... When boondocking, we use the collapsible cone product below resting on the coffee and filter basket of our electric Mr. Coffee.
However, we use the cone just to 'drip' the hot water into the coffee and filter basket of our Mr. Coffee coffeemaker.
Our Mr. Coffee has the stainless, insulated carafe so no heated plate under the carafe. We set the carafe of coffee on the table and the coffee stays hot for multiple cups. On shore power, we use the Mr.Coffee alone.

Full disclosure: I use a couple of layers of coffee filters for our Mr. Coffee in the bottom of the collapsible cone. If I don't, the unrestricted water flow through the cone is too fast into the Mr. Coffee basket portion. In the future, I will be using something else to restrict the flow, but haven't done so as yet. Also, because we are making a pot of ~8 cups, it takes a few cycles of filling the collapsible cone and waiting for the water to go through the coffee and filter.
