There are a few problems with the Ember stuff. If you do not dry the bottom of the mug the charge base can corrode and you have to buy a new mug. I would not put the mug in the dishwasher. Both of these things can be handled. The bluetooth connection from the mug to you phone (for iPhone, I do not have Android to test) is flakey. Sometimes, even when the mug is within 3 feet of the phone, the App can not find the phone. When this happens I end the app, remove the mug from bluetooth, and start the App up again. It usually pairs right away and you are off. This has gotten MUCH better for me with my new mug. It used to be MUCH worse and harder, press the bottom of a full mug to start pairing again, with an older Ember mug I had. These things are annoying. However, no other product does what this does. No wires while you are drinking your coffee. You can walk around with your mug, no problem. Keeps a constant temp. Set it in the App and the mug keeps your beverage at that temp. I had one of the mug and heated plate things and this is MUCH better. The plate always had to be plugged in and the temperature control just changed the temp of the plate, the temp of your beverage changed depending on how long the mug was off the plate. I drink coffee and tea, and I like them at different temperatures. Switching temps just takes a swipe and tap in the App. It could be made better, but there is no other option out there that comes close. It's a bit expensive, but if you want your coffee at the temperature you like and you like to walk around with your coffee there is no choice. Update!!! The mug is MUCH better with bluetooth. Still not perfect. Only occasionally is my phone unable to find the mug that is right next to it. This used to happen fairly often (weekly) and now it only happens about every other month.

A bit expensive but has proven to be worth it. If you want a hot cup of coffee to last while you are reading the paper or doing your online work this maybe a good choice for you. The cup has an app where you can set your desired temperature and indicator lights to tell you if it is charged or maintaining temperature. The cup is very sturdy and is a heavy duty ceramic. I really love my Ember and now i can take my time enjoying a hot cup of coffee. BTW the white version will start to show some coffee staining but not a big deal or a show stopper for me.

I was given one of these as a gift a few years ago. After about 2.5 years, the battery wouldn't charge anymore. Ember wouldn't help, since it was out of warranty, and I bought another. I bought a black one, but received a gray mug. It does exactly what they say it does. It keeps your coffee (or tea in my case) warm but not scalding. It works well, is unobtrusive, and I don't have to think about it. I generally leave it on the charger for the bulk of the day. Other than setting the mug for it's hottest temperature, I've never used the app for anything. Complaints: 1. Cost. Seriously, if you actually think about how this is made and what it does, $149 for a mug is beyond ridiculous. I like the mug, but that's very, very far out of line. I eagerly await competitors to make one for $39. 2. Charger. My first ember's charger stopped working at the end of year one. There are two little pins that stick up and make contact with copper rings that are on the base of the mug. If these get wet, they will eventually corrode and stop working. This is amazingly bad design. Ember sent me another charger without complaint, though, and they clearly knew it was bad design. The new mugs have the same design. 3. Stains. I didn't notice this on my black mug, but on the gray mug, it's very obvious. I don't know what material the ember is made of, but it stains very badly and very fast. You cannot get rid of the stains by scrubbing, either. I use a chemical cleaner named Cafiza that's designed to clean espresso machines to clean it every month or so. All in all, for as long as it works, it does exactly what they advertise. The battery is not replaceable, and will fail after 3 years or so. The charger is badly designed but they will replace it while it's in warranty. The mug stains badly - recommend you get a black one so that you don't notice as much.

This is my second mug. I got the bigger size this time around. Love that I don’t have to constantly stop what I’m doing to reheat my tea. I can do is on work at home, do chores around the house - and it’s perfectly hot when I take a sip.

I saw this reviewed on America’s test kitchen and they said it was the best so I decided to take a chance. For an extreme coffee lover like myself who roasts his own beans and meticulously brews to perfection, this mug has become indispensable. I would sooner divorce my wife than not be able to have my ember mug! It’s an amazing experience to be able to have the last sip of coffee be just as hot as the very first sip even while leisurely enjoying my cup of coffee for over an hour while at the computer. This thing is built with the quality of an iPhone. The box is amazing and the product even more so. I know it’s a lot of money for a coffee mug, but believe me when you get it and start using it you’ll appreciate that it probably cost them A hell of a lot to design and manufacture this. The quality of the materials and the manufacture is absolutely fabulous. As an engineer with extensive manufacturing experience I can attest to the impeccable quality of this mug. My only suggestion to them is if they could incorporate a small digital display into the base that would read temperature and remaining battery percentage, this would be more useful than just the blinking light. Granted you can monitor these things on the iPhone app, but it would be easier if it were incorporated into the mug. I love this thing so much I just sent one yesterday to a friend who’s having a birthday.! It will change the way you drink your coffee, instead of rushing to finish a cup before it gets cold, now you can enjoy it at your own pace!
