Ember’s got a new travel mug for eternal hot drinks you can never lose

Ember is a company that just thought to itself, “why not make the most average product extraordinary?”

The Ember Smart Travel Mug 2+ is the second generation travel mug from the company, and it is ridiculous how much tech they packed into what is effectively a cup with a lid.

I’m not joking. I’m struggling to find a point to start talking about all the tech inside this thing.

I guess for a start, it’s a temperature controlled mug. You can use the hidden LED touch panel on the mug itself, or a connected app on iOS or Android devices, to set your drink to the perfect temperature between 50ºC and 62.5ºC.

If you drink a lot of hot beverages, but like your coffee cooler than your tea, you can also customise presets and receive notifications when your ideal temperature has been achieved.

The mug is designed to keep your drink at the ideal temperature for up to three hours on a single charge. It also intelligently puts the battery in sleep mode when you’re not using it, and wakes it up when it senses hot liquid being poured inside.



If you thought all those high tech features were enough, we’re not quite done. Ember has also stuck Apple’s Find My technology inside this thing.

It’s a good idea, because this is not a cheap travel mug. If you lose it (or it’s stolen) you’re going to want to find it again pretty quickly.

You’ll get notifications if you leave it behind, and works with iPhone, iPad, Mac, and the Find Items app on Apple Watch.

Pricing and availability

The Ember Smart Travel Mug 2+ is available now in Australia in black with a 354 ml capacity.

It’s available to buy through JB Hi-Fi and Ember directly.
