For all of youOut there, the Ember Mug2 is the expensive, impractical gift you didn’t know you needed at all. Sure, it comes at the cost of things, but if you’re serious about your coffee, it’s also something you’ll use practically every day. And, if other Nerdshala writers are to be believed, once you get used to it, it will quickly become something you can’t live without. The most affordable 10-ounce option will usually run you $100, but today you can pick up the white version for $20 at Best Buy.
By any calculation, paying $80 for a coffee mug is a lot, but it does a lot more work than the ceramic model sitting in your cupboard. It’s also worth noting that this is the lowest price we’ve seen for an Ember mug. The previous low was $85.
The Ember is a temperature control smart mug, which means it will keep your coffee or tea at the exact right temperature until the last drop. Compatible with the Ember app for both iOS and Android, simply choose your preferred temperature between 120°F and 145°F from your smartphone and enjoy a full cup of hot water.
It has a battery life of 1.5 hours on its own, but it also comes with a charging “coaster” that charges between sips. While it is technically safe to submerge in water, it is not exactly dishwasher safe, so hand washing is preferred. This sale ends tonight at 1:00 AM EST, so while it’s at an all-time low, be sure to grab it.
