Recently in the news thanks to being spotted in the hands of Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak, the Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug will give you complete control over the temperature of your hot drink.
A cool looking piece of tech that could be a dream come true for hot drink lovers, we look into whether the Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug is smart or stupid.
What does the Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug do?
Essentially, the Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug will keep your hot drink at your required temperature, meaning that it remains constant from the first sip to the last drop.
Perhaps the perfect solution for cold teas and coffees for those who forget to drink their hot drink before it gets cold, or those on the move, this travel mug can keep drinks at any temperature between 50º and 62.5º.
The temperature can be selected on the cup itself or via an app. Through the travel cup’s app, you can also customise presets and receive notifications. The cup will display 57º to begin with and you can adjust this up and down until you reach your preferred temperature.
The Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug will last for around 2 hours once it has been fully charged, which can take around 6 hours. Alternatively, you can keep it on its charging coaster for all day use. The mug itself looks great as it boasts a sleek and impressive design.
Available in black and white, the mug has a neat display showing the temperature which gives it a desirable, futuristic look. Made from stainless steel, the Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug is hard-wearing and well-designed, and has been described as being the world’s most advanced temperature control mug.
Is the Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug smart or stupid?
The fact of the matter is that you can find a budget-friendly thermos flask that will do almost the same job, so spending almost £130 for the black mug, or £160 for the white version, seems a little excessive.
Of course, a thermos won’t enable you to control the temperature of your drink, so if the exact temperature of your beverage is important to you then you might like to make the investment.
Anyone collecting interesting tech might also like to purchase this as it does have a nice looking design, and is a bit of a novelty, but the price could be a sticking point for many.
The Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug comes nicely packaged so if you do buy it you will be impressed with how it feels like a luxury product, and it has a 1 year guarantee with a 30 day return policy for peace of mind.
In conclusion, the Ember TM15 Temperature Control Travel Mug is a smart buy if you have some spare cash and are really particular about the temperature of your drink, but otherwise a high-quality thermos will probably be sufficient.
