The Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2 reigns supreme, earning the coveted best overall self-heating coffee mug on our list. The innovative design keeps liquids at your ideal temperature for up to 80 minutes with a full battery charge. Ember uses Bluetooth technology to allow you to easily adjust its temperature between 120-145 degrees Fahrenheit from a smartphone app. No Bluetooth? No problem. Each Ember Smart Mug 2 will resume to the last used temperature without connection to ensure your drink remains deliciously warm anywhere you go. Better still, the scratch-resistant stainless-steel mug features an auto-sleep setting that kicks in once you finish your beverage or after two hours – whichever comes first.

If your morning routine leaves little time to enjoy a hot cup of coffee before heading out the door — the Muggo Self-Heating Travel Mug needs a spot in your kitchen cabinet. Pour your fresh-brewed coffee and milk of choice into the 12-ounce container just before rushing out for the day, and the high-tech design will keep the liquids at your preferred temperature for three hours. Each travel much features a touch-control temperature that adjusts from 95-150 degrees Fahrenheit. It comes with a 360-degree leakproof lid to ensure you don’t lose a drop during the morning rush. Plus, its built-in battery is easy to charge using the USB-C cable at its base.


While the top-rated CORSORI Coffee Mug isn’t self-heating, it comes with a sleek temperature-controlled coaster that allows you to adjust your beverage to your ideal warmth. The sleek coaster is waterproof, features touch control and can reflect your choice of Fahrenheit or Celsius temperatures. The stainless-steel mug features a lid that traps the heat within to ensure hot and delicious drinks with every use.


When Americanos don’t quite cut it and you need a little pep in your step, espresso is the way to go. Keep your cappuccinos and cortados at the perfect temperature with the Ember Temperature-Controlled Smart Cup. The six-ounce cup uses the same Bluetooth connectivity and in-app temperature control as the Ember Smart Mug but features a dainty silhouette designed with lower-volume espresso beverages in mind.


Every home office or corporate cubicle needs this Ohom Ui Plus Self-Heating Mug. Unlike its metal counterparts, the Ohom mug is handmade from ceramic, delivering a traditional and cozy drinking experience. Each Ohom Ui Plus mug includes a cast aluminum and tempered glass charging pad that will bring room-temperature beverages up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit or maintain pre-boiled water temps. Drinks aside, this self-heating mug set is our top pick for the workplace because the pad works overtime as a charger for cell phones, wireless headphones and other tech devices with wireless charging capabilities.

It auto-sleeps when empty and wakes when poured in, self-setting to your last used temperature.


If you always need to leave room for syrups, collagen, creamer or milk in your coffee mug, the roomy Nextmug is the way to go.

Other highlights: It features three heat settings, allowing you to find the perfect temperature for your beverage: warm (130 degrees Fahrenheit), hot (140 degrees Fahrenheit) and piping (150 degrees Fahrenheit).


Stainless steel mugs aren’t everyone’s cup of tea (or, in this case, coffee). Enter: Glowstone Classic Smart Mug 2. The Glowstone mug is crafted from fine bone China to provide a classic, comfortable experience with every cup of coffee. Each mug features a lightbar at its base to indicate the beverage is at an ideal temperature and provides one hour of heat off the charger.

Treat yourself to the elegant self-heating mug in a white, stone, soft pink or cerulean blue finish.
