About the Self-Heating Travel Mug
Muggo has developed a 12 oz. travel mug that actually heats your beverage rather than relying insulation to just maintain the temperature. It has a digital display and allows you set the temperature that you prefer. It comes with a charging coaster that allows you to charge the battery and heat the mug at the same time. The charging system is magnetic and the battery simply pops on and off. No twisting required.
What it Comes With
Muggo’s travel mug is sleekly packaged and has very few parts. There is a 12 oz mug, a plastic lid, one battery, a charging coaster, an AC adapter, and a separate UBS A to USB C cord. There were some Quick Start instructions, but I found those to be very lacking on details. We ended up having to look online for some of the information that we needed.
Setting up is quick and easy. Place the charging coaster on the counter. Plug the AC adapter to the wall and the coaster. Set the battery on one of the charging ports. That’s all. Battery will charge in around 3 hours if using the AC adapter. If you use the USB cord it is expected to take 5 hours. If you already have a beverage that you would like to keep warm, you can place the mug on the other charging port, and it will heat the mug and charge the battery simultaneously. When charging on the coaster it has a LED light surrounding the base. The light will be red while charging and blue when complete.
This is a feature-rich mug. It has the following:
12 oz mug with stainless steel interior
Product is BPA free
Plastic lid that presses down to seal. Press again to open
Digital display with touch responsive areas
C / F temperature reading settings
A base designed to fit most vehicle cup holders
Magnetic charging and battery locking
The cap is completely removable and dishwasher safe. The 12 oz mug must be hand washed for cleaning.
User Experience Pros and Cons
Product is easy to use and works – kept drink warm for 2 hours even with the lid off
12 oz mug size seems to work well for travel and vehicle use.
Charging system is neat – can charge battery and heat drink at same time
Magnetic battery connection is great – strong magnets, no twisting to remove
Battery is completely detachable for easy cleaning
Colored LED light confirmation when the product charges
Lid is dishwasher safe
Instructions were a little lacking
Mouth for lid does not let enough of the drink out – ended up taking the lid off
Mug LED display can be hard to see in sunlight
Colored LED charging indicator light can’t be turned off
12 oz mug is not dishwasher safe (understandable though)
I’m giving the Self-Heated Travel Mug by Muggo 4 stars. It is a slick-looking product that works pretty well. I would suggest to Muggo that the instructions be elaborated and clear for a first-time user. Also, Muggo should make changes to the mouth of the lid. Those of us who scarf down coffee will be frustrated by the limited amount that passes through the opening. Two easy things to fix, otherwise a solid product.

Solid Travel Mug
Alright, so it’s a travel mug. Big deal, right? Well, as portable drinking containers go, the self-heating Muggo Mug is one of the best. So maybe describing this as self-heating might be a bit of a misnomer, as you do actually have to attach the battery and power on the mug yourself, but let’s not get too technical here.
In the box you will find the 12oz. Muggo Mug, lid, battery, power brick, optional USB-A to USB-C cable, dual charging pad, and quick start guide. I found the quick start guide to be lacking. Now I’m not usually a fan of tons of frivolous paperwork, but the quick start guide really did not explain how to use this mug. Instead, it points you to the Muggo website, which I have to say does actually provide an easy to follow roadmap on setup and use.
Opening the box you are presented with the black Muggo Mug front and center. The design is simple, but somehow just looks elegant. It’s hard to explain. Maybe its the simplicity itself that makes this product so appealing. The mug itself is lightweight, yet solid. Definitely great build quality, and in no way feels cheap or flimsy. Attaching the battery definitely increases the weight, but not so much that it becomes awkward or cumbersome to use.
Setting up the mug is pretty straight forward. Attach the battery to the bottom of the mug, and touch the “Muggo” logo on the mug for two seconds to power on the warmer. You will see the temperature display turn on at the bottom of the mug showing the current internal mug temperature. The display will flash as the mug warms to the set temperature. Once that temperature is reached, the display will stop flashing and your set temperature will remain displayed. You can set your desired temperature at anytime by touching the + or - symbols next to the temperature display. A couple of notes here, you do not need to push with any force on the logo to turn on the device. Lightly placing your finger on the logo will turn on the warmer, but it does take the full two seconds, so just give it time. Second, to turn off the warmer simply touch the logo again for two seconds. The display will ask if you wish to power off. Tap the logo and that’s it.
I did not find any battery indicator anywhere, so it was hard to know how much battery life was left. This would be a nice feature for future models. I believe Muggo states approximately three hours of battery life from a full charge. The batter is 400mAh and according to Muggo’s site, will take three hours to charge, presumably from 0 to full.
Charging is done via a dual, conductive wireless charging system. Just place the battery in the circular charging cradle, no need to worry about slots or lining up pins. Super convenient and easy. Also, as the pictures show, the charging pad emits a blue glow while not in use. I really like this feature. Once you place the battery on the pad the light turns red, until the battery is charged, then it returns to blue. You can also use the remaining cradle opening to warm your drink within the mug simultaneously, or charge a second battery, or warm two mugs. Again, a very nice feature.
The battery connects to the mug via a magnetic system. Once again, no need to align anything. The battery simply connects regardless of the orientation. I feel the battery connection could be a bit stronger. I didn’t feel like it would fall off while carrying the mug, but it did become disconnected while removing it from my backpack drink pouch. I performed a little “bump” test and again, the battery dislodged.
I said, this mug is beautiful, but only initially. This thing is a fingerprint magnet (no pun intended). It will definitely show fingerprints, smudges, and oils from your fingers and hands. It also becomes a bit more slippery throughout the day as you use it and your bodies natural oils adhere to the mug.
But man does this thing heat. The warmer works flawlessly. Not only does this keep your beverage warm, at precisely the desired, set temperature, but I found it will also reheat your beverage rather quickly. I intentionally turned off the warmer and my drink stayed pretty warm. So I took off the lid to purposely let my coffee cool to room temperature. I then powered on the warmer, set the temp to 120 and within a few minutes I had warm coffee.
Drinking is easy, there is a push button top that will keep your drink closed and from spilling. Simply push the top down, drink, and push again to close if needed. I turned my coffee upside down several times and found absolutely no signs of leaking.
This fits in standard car drink holders quite nicely as well. I do wish this Muggo Mug came in another size other than 12oz. I drink a lot of coffee, so this is a bit on the small side for me, but may be just right for you.
Overall, I am quite impressed with the Muggo Mug. I gave it four stars due to the 12oz size, showing fingerprints, and magnet strength. But for keeping your drink warm, and working as it should, I would rate this a 5/5. I have no problems recommending this to friends or family.

Some like it hot!
Review: Muggo Self Heating Travel Mug
I like coffee but especially hot coffee. Now I'm not talking about coffee that scalds the roof of my mouth. So what is the temperature and how does this product fit in the picture.
My wife likes the convenience of a Keurig single pod brewer. I've read that Keurig says the coffee is brewed at 180 degrees or so. When I measure the coffee temperature immediately after brewing it measures at around 155 degrees. Quite frankly, too hot to drink. Let your cup sit for a few minutes and the temperature has dropped noticeably. Let it sit for a few minutes warm the coffee is lukewarm.
This is when the Muggo is useful.
Besides a few cables, there are 3 components to this product.
1. The Charging Base - it plugs into a standard wall plug or a :USB port. This base does 2 things with 2 different circular charging plates.
1. It keeps the coffee in the travel mug warm.
2. It charges a battery that keeps the coffee hot while on the road.
2. The 2nd component is the Travel Mug. The mug I received is 12 ounces in capacity. It has a lid that must be removed in order to drink the coffee. There is a temperature gauge on the mug itself. You can set the temperature of the coffee in the mug from 120 - 140 degrees. I set mine to140 and it holds it at that temperature for hours.
3. The third component is the battery that connects to the mug. It fits below the mug and raised the height of the mug a few inches. I have to remove this battery if I brew a cup directly from the Keurig into the Travel Mug.
Does it work? Absolutely. Is it worth purchasing. If you like your coffee hot and especially if your ae on the road a lot, I would recommend this product.

Good Concept bad execution
I like the concept. It kept my drink hot for hours. This comes with a platform for charging the battery and keeping the drink hot. You can either use the supplied outlet plug to charge the battery quicker that if you plug in the USB-C plug. The battery pack is magnetized and stay on the cup during use.
You select the temperature you want your drink to stay at and the Muggo does the rest. However, the unit does not have a memory feature and I had to set my temp every morning. The temperature display gets hard to read, the more dots the number uses the dimmer each dot is.
The flow rate from the cover is incredibly low. The cover is made of plastic. The outside of the mug takes fingerprints and palm prints every time I touched it, this look takes away from eye appeal of the finish.
What is in the box.
USB-C charging cord
Plug in charging cord
Quick Start Guide
Dual station charging platform
The packaging for the Muggo is exceptionally well thought-out.
I would not recommend this product to family and friends. I would change this is the flow rate was better.

Display Failed, Touch Controls Failed
After one day of use, the mug failed on me. The touch display started to show garbled text and all temperature controls are lost. I followed directions (which were not included in the packaging, by the way..I had to go to their crowdfunding site for that) for controls and maintenance. I washed the mug with soap and water carefully because I knew it was an electronic device and left the battery to charge overnight for another day. And that’s when I learned that I was only dealt a single day.
What’s sad is that it actually started off as a really strong product. I brewed a cup of coffee into the Muggo and took it to work. It maintained temperature at 135 degrees for about 2 hours, which was plenty of time to keep my coffee hot down to the last sip. My only minor complaint was the lid that seems to only allow sips of beverage at a time. I made sure to turn off after I was finished with my coffee.
As of right now, it does remember the last setting of 135 degrees and will keep my coffee hot, so technically it still does work. I can also turn it on and off. I believe the issue stems from the touch display living in the same area where the heating element resides, which is at the base of the mug.
Prior to this, I was using a vacuum insulated mug and it worked very well. It was the “down to the last sip” hot coffee that this Muggo had going for it.
I’d stay clear from this mug for now.

Good mobile beverage heating Muggo!
Muggo Self-Heating Travel Mug
Muggo is designed to be a thermos on the go. It is insulated and so will help keep your beverages heated as any thermos would, but this goes a step beyond by actively heating your beverage while at your desk or on the go.
* Easy to use^.
* Actually does the job.
* Convenient power options including traditional outlet and USB-C.
* Detachable battery and mug attach easily and securely enough for normal use.
* Pop-down lid cavity for taking sips without having to unscrew the lid.
* Conductive charging stand. That means exposed contacts. I don't understand why they didn't opt for inductive charging. However, since the stand also actively can power the mug and therefore keep it heated, I see why they did it. But, I have some concerns about long term maintenance.
* Battery. Well, I'll be honest. I thought the mug had its own battery. It does not. It can receive power and keep your mug heated while on the stand OR via the detachable battery. Not a big deal, but I simply misunderstood the application. This means the extra height of the battery is a requirement always, not just for the extra heating time while on the go.
* Capacity. I think I would have preferred a slightly larger mug with a handle as I apparently drink my coffee faster than I thought.
I've tested this in various manners and used daily for regular coffee. While I do tend to drink my coffee pretty quickly, there are times when I forget and my coffee gets cold. This thermos mug definitely helps with this problem. However, as a result, I'm beginning to think that I'll use the charging plate and the mug together more often than I will need to use the battery. The battery is pretty awesome by the way. It is relatively light for its size and attaches securely to the mug via magnets. I swung the mug around (carefully) to see if gravity and the centrifugal force alone would make it fall off, but nope. It hung on snuggly.
Here are some timing data for the tests I've done before my regular use.
* Heating room temperature water.
> On the battery, it takes approximately 20 minutes per ~20 degrees. I timed the intervals.
> In about an hour it raised the temperature from 70 to 130 degrees.
> The only thermometer I could find was my meat one. So I used it to test the temperatures at each interval. The mug reported slightly lower temperatures than the meat thermometer did. Usually a 2-6 degree difference. Not sure what that means.
> Obviously, water alone and meat thermometers aren't the intended application, but might be good to know.
> The timing wasn't too different when placed on the charging plate directly.
* Keeping hot coffee hot.
> I put freshly brewed coffee into the mug and let it sit on the charger. Undisturbed, it kept the coffee at a relatively consistent temperature +/- 2-6 degrees. Drinking from the mug caused bigger deviations but would also recover quicker.
> I put freshly brewed coffee into the mug and let it sit on the battery. Undisturbed, it kept the coffee hot (130) for [at least] 3 hours while completely full. I decided to drink it after the timer went off since that is the advertised time limit.
All in all, the Muggo appears to live up to its promises. I think the instructions could perhaps be a little more detailed, but they say enough to get things working. I could also have used a slightly larger model with a handle, perhaps. If you tend to nurse your beverages and/ or have problems with your beverages getting cold then the Muggo just might be what you need. If you tend to drink higher volumes of hot beverages you might want to look for something a tad larger. I'm giving it a full 5 stars because concerns not-with-standing, it does appear well made, and even more importantly, it does what it says it does!

Nice to have with but
Innovative thought behind the coffee mug to retain hot still while in the move. It is not the first of its kind but among few in the market integrating drinking habit with technology.
It comes with what the brand communicate, charger, outlet power cable, usb, tumbler for 12 oz coffee and rechargeable battery. In overall upon unpacking, it does appeal a nice feeling and wanna have coffee for that just bit longer warm or hot while mindset is on the task or in motion.
Now, grabbing the tumble feels solid, and having sip not big difference from existing ones. Nothing new in this aspect. Now, the main feature of self heating, for this Muggo implemented a Turn On/Off button in the nicely camuflage with log and placed in interestingly on the upper side of tumble. LED indicator it has temperature, control to change temperature, OFF.
The Turn On/Off allow the tumbler enable view of temperature, and seance tap allow to enable signs minus and plus to control increment or decrease the temperature.
Then rechargeable battery is the second part of body that is detachable and be charged separately in the charging base. The attaching and detaching is quite well thought as it is really easy due to its magnetic effect. As place under tumbler, just attach and no need of spinning or need to look for the right point of join to attach.
The charging base comes for two placement, one for rechargeable as described above, second for the tumbler it self. Then underneath a light indicator of charging or fully charged in my understanding as it Is absent from manual what is what and how to
Placing tumbler on the charging base serve the purpose of keeping warm, doesn’t charge it. So the full picture of how to use is, while you are working or at home, have the base plugged into your notebook or outlet power and have the tumbler on it, and the battery charging. Then if you are on the move either inside office or driving distance or walk out take the battery and attach to tumbler to keep warm the drink. I had to figure out a bit scratching the head as bottom of tumbler and charging battery are the same and give sense that the tumbler itself has battery but I concluded it doesn’t .
On charging the battery fully, it takes more than couple of hours if I monitored correctly. In the subject of how long maintain warm, it does keep warm for about 3 hours or so with the battery. Without battery, baed on my first couple of test, does remains warm for about 2 hours or so. Either way, it is reasonable time to have warm drink assuming the norm is one will finish the 12 oz drink in less time.
Regarding temperature, having hot drink at 150F, and as pour cold drink, can see immediate change of temperature decreasing.
The maximum of 150F does feel true to it (minimum is 95F). The drink is hot enough to say is hot but not to burn. To have perspective, the suggested water temperature for tea is between 160F to 180F. With 150F for me was hot to close to as I would drink tea. Then retaining it warm at the set temperature does keep couple of hours based on my first experience. Of course, as use through out the time remains to see if remains same as it wear out. And holing it does feel warm on hand perfect for winter time. And it doesn’t leak when fully closed the top
Now on using the touch function to control the temperature, and turn on/off, often had to touch several time to change. Sometime with one touch does change, but not always has been the case.
Some list of downside:
1. Fully charging the battery takes considerable time, more than three hours.
2. Charging base is not wireless charging used across devices such to charge other devices. Considering the base can be charged using usb and considerably big next to desktop or notebook, this seems relevant as in the space of notebook and desktop compete for charging multiple devices.
3. LED doesn’t offer option to see level of battery. Or indicator to know when it should be charged.
4. Can’t tell if it is dishwasher compatible although for me is not an issue but might be for some.
5.Changing temperature from 124F to 150F while on rechargeable battery, takes about 30 min or more to fully achieve intended temperature. Hence not sure on the practicality considering 3 hours is maximum time to keep warm.
6. Considering its price, need another accessory or built in at bottom to protect from impact of falling as there is high chance of let slide accidentally.
7. Doesn’t come with base or recharge in the car. One could use the same base that come with the product, but considering it is made for mobility, charging in the car is not practical with ease.
8. Manual nor its website at mgggocoffee.com doesn’t tell basic details like how long need to charge battery, meaning of blue and red light in the charging base.
The Muggo does offer true to temperature and easy of attaching/detaching battery with touch sensor to control basic functions. However in the process and use experience comes bit short of its mobility use experience at the price point. It is expensive toy and nice to have but not sure if worth spending that much for the full experience of drinking 12oz coffee or tea.
As side note, it could have other applicability using as thermos for South American countries that refill their tea (mate) as serve. But still regular thermo can keep hot water for longer hours.
Hence the product and its design behind is not that bad, but still too early at the offered price point.

Looks nice, works as advertised, but do I need it?
This product comes in a very sturdy and attractive package (see photos). The Muggo itself is well-built, attractive and simple to operate.
It took several hours to charge for the first time. Then I followed the instructions and turned it on (hold logo for 2 seconds) and the temp read 87 degrees F (ambient). When the coffee finished brewing into the cup, the temp read 179 degrees F. The "keep" settings for Muggo only let you set it as high as 150 degrees F, some 40 degrees lower than the starting temperature of my coffee.
So the first shortcoming is that it will never keep the coffee at the temperature where it starts but rather about 40 degrees lower, at best.
Then I attempted to drink from the mug. In order to keep the coffee warm, the walls of the mug are very thick. Given this is a small thermos jug, this is is what you would expect, only that you don't drink out of a thermos - you use it to pour coffee into your cup. The Muggo has a feature - a push-to-drink top - that allows you to sip out of the top. Given you have to tilt to overcome a one-half-inch barrier to drink your coffee while pressing down on the top, it felt awkward and worked best using both hands. I much prefer the experience of drinking out of a cup.
It took about 30 minutes for the temperature of the coffee to reach the 150 degree mark where it is supposed to hold. This temperature was still within drinking range. (It would be interesting to compare this with the temperature drop in a typical insulated coffee cup)
A final little annoyance is that sometimes, when I blindly reached for the Muggo, I would touch the logo which would risk turning it off inadvertently.
SUMMARY: it is a good-looking, sturdy (and expensive) product that I don't need. If I wanted a thermos-type product, I would buy one with larger capacity as I drink more than a couple of cups of coffee at a sitting. Those containers have worked for decades without battery power to maintain a constant temperature for extended periods of time. If I am drinking a single cup of coffee, usually I finish it before it gets too cool, certainly in less than the 30 minutes it takes to drop to 150 degrees where the battery power kicks in..It might make a nice gift for "the person that has everything" or someone who requires more than a half hour to drink a single cup of coffee, but it is not a worthwhile investment for a daily coffee drinker like me.
