Ember Smart Mug 2 Hits Clearance Pricing at Costco, Works with iOS and Android
If you’ve been waiting to spend $99 on a smart coffee mug, here’s your chance. The Ember Mug 2 has hit clearance pricing on Costco.ca, down to $99.97. Normally, the smart mug that can be controlled with an iOS or Android retails for $187 on Amazon.ca (it’s on sale for $149).
Features of the Ember Mug 2 (14 oz) include a smart LED to let you know when your beverage has reached the perfect temperature, to go with a built-in battery life of 80 minutes. The smart mug has auto sleep to know when to turn on and off and can heat your drink from 50C to 62.5C, controlled via the Ember iOS and Android app.
You don’t need a smartphone app to control the Ember Mug 2, as it’s preset to 135 F (57.2C) out of the box. The app just lets you set a custom LED colour or specific drink temperature. You cannot microwave this mug or put it in the dishwasher. The mug comes with a charging base for the cup.
So far, many on RFD have noted this seems like a good deal. It’s one of those sales where, if you’ve been waiting, this might be the time to jump on it. At least with Costco, you can return it with no questions asked if you don’t like it.
There are various mug warmers on Amazon available at a fraction of the cost. How long does it take one to drink their coffee anyways? We like this mug warmer with its automatic shut off feature (with timer or after 8 hours), that will also cut power when you remove your cup off the surface.
