What's the exact timeout/expiration on the cart?

    I've set up a 'cart content' box on my sidebar showing what items are in your cart and I set the cookie expiration to 1 hour because that's what I read Mal's cart timeout is set at...but over an hour has passed and the item is still in my cart.

    Does anyone know the exact expiration time of the cart?

    When you say the item is still in the cart, I think the cart becomes unusable rather than the display changing. Have you tried to add to it after an hour?

    Yes, I just tested that.

    I added 1 product to my cart and then waited for 1 hour and 20 min (i didn't view the cart either, so no activity) and then added a 2nd product and the 1st product was still in the cart.

    So obviously 1 hour is not the timeout.
