  • Allows you to choose your favorite faucet color from the mobile app.
  • Its sleek design makes it easy to carry around with you, thus making it convenient for any situation.

We all have a favorite mug to drink our morning hot cup of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa.

But what if you could upgrade your drinking experience with the Ember Mug²? The Ember Mug² is a temperature-controlled smart mug that heats up when you pour in your hot drink and cools down as it reaches the perfect serving temperature. It’s great for anyone who loves their drink just how they like it!

Unlike a regular mug, the Ember Mug² changes the game by heating your beverage to your preferred temperature. The mug is perfect for everything from coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. It heats quickly and cools down just as quickly.

The Ember Mug² is different than other heated mugs. It’s made with stainless steel insulation that keeps drinks at the perfect temperature for up to 2 hours! Because it cools down so quickly, you can easily take your beverage on the go without causing condensation or spilling all over yourself.

We got out hands on the line of Ember Mugs and tested them out to see if they were as good as they claimed or just a marketing scam.

About Ember

Ember_about

Ember has won numerous awards from some of the most respected publications in technology, including WIRED, TechCrunch, Popular Science, and Fortune.

Ember is also endorsed by numerous celebrities and industry leaders, including James Beard Award Winner Chef Dominique Ansel, Actor Robert Downey Jr., Jon Bon Jovi, Emmy Award Winner Jon Hein (Howard Stern Show), NBA All-Star Blake Griffin, and many more!

They were the first to the market with a temperature-controlled mug and have added to its technological advancement by creating an app that helps regulate the temperature to your perfect desire.

 

Ember Mug² Overview

ember mug review

After unpacking our Ember Mug², we were impressed with how sleek it looked. It has a very modern design with a black steel exterior and silver base.

When we filled up our mug with Hot Chocolate (the only thing that would come out of my Keurig), we realized that there weren't any markings on the inside of the mug, so it made it difficult to know how much liquid was in the cup. There were some small measurements on the side, but they weren't big enough to see unless you held the cup up to the light.

We set our temperature on the Ember app at 130 degrees fahrenheit, which was perfect for drinking right away, but would warm up too quickly if we needed to drink it again later in the day.

If this is something that we will be using multiple times throughout the day, then we probably would bump it up to around 150 or 160 degrees.

This mug has made drinking our favorite drinks faster and easier than ever before. For example, it used to take 30-60 minutes to try and drink hot chocolate because it would always cool off after making it (and we like ours nice and hot). Now with Ember Mug², we can enjoy a piping hot cup of cocoa within minutes.

The Ember Mug² charges via induction and lasts up to 2 hours on a single charge! After your Ember Mug² reaches 100% battery level, it will begin heating or cooling until your desired temperature is achieved when using the mobile app.

The stainless steel interior is also a huge bonus because it's super durable and doesn't come into contact with any of your beverages, meaning no funky flavors or scents! You can clean it by running it under hot water and soap.

The mug is also perfect for coffee or tea drinkers who want to enjoy their drink at the ideal temperature. The Ember Mug² uses stainless steel insulation that keeps beverages at your desired temperature for up to two hours, even when you're on the go!

While we tested the 10-ounce Ember mug, Ember Mugs are also available in a 14-ounce cup in a variety of colors that include: Back, White, Rose Gold, Copper, Stainless Steel, and Gold.

Ember Mug App

Ember mug app

The Ember Mug² comes with an accompanying app, available for iOS and Android. Using this app, you can control the temperature on your mug, which is perfect if you want to set it at a specific temperature.

Ember Mug² uses WiFi-connectivity to sync with the mobile app on your iOS or Android smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (BTLE). Through the Ember Mug app, you can set a specific preferred drinking temperature between 120°F - 145°F or even manually adjust the heat level of heating technology to avoid scalding.

Using the "Find My Mugs" feature, you can track down your mug's location in case you happen to forget where you left it. The app also features an alarm that alerts you when your drink reaches the perfect serving temperature.

There are three settings for the app:

On Set Temp: You set your temperature once and drink right away. This is perfect if you know that you will need a cup of coffee or tea at work or while you're on the go. I love this feature!

Off: Your mug won't heat up until you manually turn it on using the app. This setting is perfect when you have to leave your Ember Mug² somewhere longer than 2 hours but still want to keep your hot beverage piping hot.

Lock It: Turn on GPS tracking so that other users in the area can't adjust the temperature remotely, preventing accidents if someone happens to get their hands on your Ember Mug². We thought this was a great safety feature. In addition, this will prevent kids from accidentally bumping the temperature up to a boiling point if they are playing with it.

Beyond allowing you to customize your heating experience, It also features the ability to choose the color of the LED lights on the outside of your mug, set your preferred temperature range, and even set up a notification reminder when it's time for a refill.

Paring your Ember Mug² is very easy. The video below demonstrates the simplicity:

Ember Mug² Design

Ember Mug² has a sleek design that is perfect for using at home or taking on the go. It easily fits in most standard cup holders, and I love the matte exterior, which makes it easy to grip when you've got some hot coffee in hand!

It also features an ergonomic handle that allows you to easily hold your mug without burning your hand.

The mug itself is made from high-quality stainless steel, which means your drinks never come into contact with the cup's interior. This eliminates unwanted flavors from infusing in your drink, and it even makes cleaning out the excess gunk far easier!

In addition to keeping beverages at their intended temperature for hours, Ember Mug² also features a LED light ring that surrounds the mug. This has many benefits for sure! For one, you can personalize your mug by choosing your favorite color from the mobile app -

It also acts as an indicator to tell you when your drink is hot enough to drink and makes it easy for other users in the room to know when it's safe to get their hands on your mug without burning themselves.

How Does Ember Mug² Work?

The Ember Mug² heats up beverages by conducting heat down the cup's exterior using our proprietary heating technology - this allows for a fast and even distribution of heat throughout your drink. The mug is made with 400 ml (13.5 oz) of double-walled vacuum insulation and is designed to keep your drinks hot.

Here is a little insight on the process:

The mug holds heat with no electricity until you connect it to the mobile app via Bluetooth - this means that the heating technology is constantly heating your beverage, even when not in use.

It may take a few seconds to reach your preferred temperature of your drink, which is typical for this type of technology, but it definitely has the power to keep drinks hot for hours on end!

The app will tell you when your drink starts to reach the perfect temperature by flashing green, yellow, or red. If you don't want to wait for your Ember ceramic mug's LED indicator to signal that it's ready to go, you can even heat up your drinks at the touch of a button!

Ember Mug² is equipped with four different heat settings and preset temperatures:

  • 2-hour auto shut off (sleep mode)
  • 160°F (75°C)
  • 194°F (90°C)
  • 212°F (100°C)

 

The mug only takes about three minutes to heat up and has a longer battery life for 12 total hours of use. This means that you can enjoy your hot chocolate during a commute and not have to worry about it going cold while you're out!

It also features the ability to choose the color of the LED lights on the outside of your mug, set your preferred temperature range, and even set up a notification reminder when it's time for a refill.

There is double-wall insulation that prevents condensation and keeps your beverage warmer for a long time!

It also acts as an indicator to tell you when your drink is hot enough to drink and makes it easy for other users in the room to know when it's safe to get their hands on your mug without burning themselves.
