CES 2023: Ember's New Temperature-Controlled Mug to Support Apple's Find My

At CES in Las Vegas this week, temperature-controlled mug maker Ember said that it plans to release a new Travel Mug 2+ with support for Apple's Find My app in the second quarter of 2023, according to TechCrunch and Engadget.

Ember Travel Mug 2
This new functionality will enable users to track the location of the Travel Mug 2+ in the Find My app in the same way as an iPhone, iPad, AirPods, or another device. The new mug will also have a built-in speaker that can emit a chime to help users find it when it is misplaced. The mug will otherwise have identical features and pricing as the existing Travel Mug 2, which is available for $199.95 in the United States.

Ember's temperature-controlled mugs are designed to keep your coffee or other hot beverage at your desired drinking temperature for up to three hours, or all day if the mug is kept on the included charging coaster. The mug can be connected to an iPhone via Bluetooth and controlled with the Ember app, and the Travel Mug 2 also has built-in touch controls for setting a preferred temperature between 120°F and 145°F.

The new Travel Mug 2+ will eventually replace the existing Travel Mug 2.

From what I've read, people who don't have Ember mugs think they are too expensive and over engineered. But most of the people who do have Ember mugs love them and sing their praises to anyone who will listen.

Sort of like a certain computer company.
I know a few people who have them, either given them as gifts or bought as a kind of novelty purchase, and their takes are all some variant on "meh, it's nice to have but I wouldn't miss it." I think the scenarios you find yourself in where you want to keep a drink warm for a long time but a cheaper insulated travel cup wouldn't do the job itself are pretty rare. "I want a cup of coffee now, but I also want the same cup of coffee in an hour" is not a thought I have a lot. It feels like a solution in search of a problem. Not everything needs a 'smart' variant; mugs are quite high up the list of things that don't.

Let me introduce the old fashioned and analog "Thermoskanne". Keeps your tea warm for up to 8 hours* without recharging. To recharge, you just fill it up with another hot beverage!

Free lifehack: to make it last REALLY long, clean out the thermos with boiled water first, this way the hot beverage does not cool down from hitting the "cold" surface of the thermos when you pour it in.

I don't know about you, but I know the location of my mug of coffee at all times. It's not going anywhere.

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
