InGenious Heated Travel Mug
About this deal
To add in a “control” factor, I also tested a regular ceramic mug as well as a stainless-steel Yeti tumbler. All of them were able to bring coffee up back to temperature, except the Glowstone, which needed to be emptied and refilled again (I have to say I’m not sure I did this right: the directions to the Glowstone were pretty sparse so I had to do some Googling and guessing.
But it gets hot while warming the mug, so you’ll have to wait for it to cool down to drop your phone on it. Based on the results from the SmrtMugg Pro — it was the top performer in our tests but is currently unavailable — we feel confident recommending this SmrtMugg model. It also featured three different temperature settings, functioned well both off and on its charger, and was cool to the touch when on.We'll demonstrate our appreciation by providing the fast and efficient service you deserve to receive when handing over your hard earned cash. The mug displays the temperature of the liquid inside on an easy-to-read interface, so users can set and adjust the temperature. Both Embers and the VSITOO are app-controlled (arguably, these are the only “smart” mugs because of their app connectivity), and even amongst that group, the Ember Travel can be controlled via touch functions on the mug itself.
If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. Every time I walked from one room to another, I got a notification asking me to reconnect the mug and app. Using the mug independently will limit you from customizing specific feature from the Ember mobile app such as adding a custom LED color or setting a specific preferred temperature between 120°F - 145°F. The experts in the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Innovation Lab test heated mugs for heat retention, impact on taste and ease of use.The battery life of your hot mug depends on a number of factors including but not limited to: external temperature, liquid temperature at pour, speed of liquid consumption, and your set temperature. Yes—although this wasn’t part of our testing protocol, I did allow some of the coffees to go cold, usually by letting the mugs get to sleep mode, and turned them back on.
