Why you should buy the Ember Smart Mug 2

By using a fine-tuned, app controlled temperature adjustment, you can set the temperature that the warming base of the Ember Smart Mug 2 targets. Anywhere from 120 to 145-degrees Fahrenheit will do. When it detects your drink getting cooler than the desired temperatures, it fires up the heat and brings the world back into balance. In a weird sort of way, it is reminiscent of a smart thermostat that is specific for your drink.
