If you’re like us, your blood is more coffee than plasma at this point. And there’s nothing worse when it comes time to work than being cold-blooded (unless you’re a reptile or Rick James). That’s why we love the Ember Smart Mug 2, a powered mug that lets you set your desired beverage temperature and maintain it thanks to multiple sensors and a microprocessor-controlled heating system. It’s the perfect desk accessory for coffee and tea lovers, and it’s 23% off if you act fast.

The Ember Smart Mug 2 $99 (was $129.95)

Ember Mug 2

See It

The Ember Smart Mug 2 is stainless steel coated with ceramic, an ideal vessel for 10 ounces of caffeinated (or unleaded) lifeblood (there are also 14-ounce options on sale). Synced via smartphone to the Ember app, it maintains presets (between 120°F – 145°F) for your favorite beverage for up to 80 minutes when fully charged or indefinitely if put back on its charging coaster between sips. You can get lost in your workflow and not be disappointed when, 45 minutes later, you pick your head up and find a lukewarm liquid. And if you are done for the day, the mug enters sleep mode when empty or after two hours of inactivity. And don’t we all dream of sleep mode, our bellies warm with some calming concoction? Day or night, the Ember Mug 2 can be your constant companion (and Ember also makes a travel mug we love).

Speaking of coffee … check out this espresso machine and these Yeti mugs.
