The Ember mug provides the perfect vessel for consistent drinking temperatures for your coffee or hot tea — and will keep it that way for up to 2 hours.

Ember cools things down to the ideal temperature without the need for complicated buttons or instructions, just rotate the dial at the bottom to set the temperature and enjoy. It's leak proof, portable, and easy to charge using the slim, compact coaster. You can even pair via Bluetooth and adjust the temperature using your smartphone when your Ember isn't at arms length.
