Costco sells this Ember Mug 2 for $99.99. Scroll down for photos. I had never heard of these smart mugs until recently. I thought this was a very clever idea to solve the problem of cold coffee. This is a temperature controlled mug that will keep your coffee hot up 145°F. For most people, that will be plenty warm. For those of you who like your coffee to burn your insides all the way down, this may not be for you =). This would make for a nice holiday gift for the coffee lovers in your life. It’s not something I would buy myself, but would make for a great gift. This is the 2nd model & improved design from the first generation. Here are a few more details about this Ember Mug from Costco…….

Costco Ember 14 oz. Temperature Control Smart Mug2, Gray
So I’m not sure I would ever buy a product like this. Even though the reviews are decent, I knew exactly what all the bad reviews would say. The biggest complaints are not hot enough, won’t charge, stopped working after so many months & inside is flaking away. This is enough for me to not purchase this item. I just don’t see how this can last more than a year or 2 & then your stuck buying a new one. That’s pretty steep for $99. It seems like it’s more hassle than it’s worth. I feel a traditional high end mug will work better in the end. Please feel free to chime in if you own one. Anyways, I found this in the middle aisle near the holiday items. They currently sell it on Costco.com for $99.99, so if you can’t find it in store, make sure to check online. If you can’t find this anywhere, make sure to check out these other HIGHLY RATED models & different colors / sizes…….
