I remember a few years back when I busted out my new vaporizer that had an accompanying app that allowed you to choose specific temperatures for your leafy greens or concentrates and my buddy at the time was like ‘damn, do we really need an app for everything these days?!’ I think back to that moment every time I see a smart device with an accompanying app and 99 out of 100 times the answer is ‘no’, the device does not need an app but in this instance, it’s f’n awesome. The Ember Mug is that cool and the app gives you complete control.
The Ember Mug ($99) is a 10oz Smart Mug that allows you to choose the exact temperature you want to keep your coffee warm at and the mug then keeps it at that temp all day. This is legitimately a gadget that I’d expect to encounter at Bill Gates’ house and think to myself ‘of course billionaires have cool stuff like that’ and not something I’d expect to be able to buy myself for under $100.
Let’s check out the Ember Mug (in white and/or black) so you can get a feel for how awesome this is:
Full Ember Mug ($99) features include:
- A 10-ounce smart mug that lets you set an exact drinking temperature
- Built-in battery can maintain your chosen temperature for up to 1.5 hours
- Place the mug on the charging coaster to keep your drink at temp all day long
- Smart LED indicators let you know when your drink reaches your preferred temperature
- Auto-sleep feature senses when the mug is empty and turns off
- Can hold temps between 120°F and 145°F
- Set your temperature on the mug itself or through the Ember app
- Four precision sensors monitor temp and detect when the mug is filled or empty
- Notifications let you know when your drink cools to your ideal temp (no more burning your tongue)
- Mug is submersible up to one meter
- Safe to hand wash (not dishwasher safe)
- Power source for the charging coaster is a two-prong plug
Here it is in action if you’re eager to see how it actually works:
The Ember Mug is a perfect holiday gift for pretty much anyone who drinks coffee and at $99 it’s also an excellent ‘treat yo self’ purchase that you can pick up right now and enjoy all Fall/Winter/Spring as the days of drinking iced coffee are now in the rearview mirror.
