Basic Information About the Nextmug

How does the Nextmug work?

By setting the mug to “warm” (130 degrees), “hot” (140 degrees) or “piping” (150 degrees), the Nextmug will keep your beverage at the perfect temperature for hours. Keep it on included Docking Coaster or undock it to be anywhere you want to be and the on-board, lithium-ion battery will ensure your warm beverage stays just the way you like it.

How do I use the Nextmug?

It’s super simple: Pour in your favorite hot beverage and set the temperature to “warm” (130 degrees), “hot” (140 degrees) or “piping” (150 degrees), and the Nextmug will ensure that your beverage stays at that temperature for hours. LED lights on the mug indicate your temperature and the battery level. The on-board computer will even turn off the mug automatically when it’s empty or hasn’t been picked up after 2 hours.

How much does the Nextmug weigh?

Lightweight at only 17 ounces, the Nextmug feels comfortable in your hands.

What are the key materials used in the Nextmug?

From an elegant matte finish to a state-of-the-art Printed Circuit Board, every component in the Nextmug uses only high-quality materials. The patented design features a stylish ceramic matte finish over a durable stainless-steel mug. The Nextmug has an ergonomically designed handle and the rounded body can be held comfortably in your hands.  The exterior is insulated from the interior liquid so that it is pleasantly warm, not hot, to the touch. 

How does the Nextmug compare to other types of mugs when it comes to keeping beverages warm for a long period of time?

Can I learn more about the battery and its rated life?

The long-lasting, lithium-ion battery ensures your beverage is always the perfect temperature. The battery is fully encased inside the mug. The entire mug rests on the Docking Coaster while charging. The battery is rated to be fully charged 1,000 times, after which it will continue to maintain an 80% level of effectiveness…so you'll enjoy the Nextmug for years to come.

Tips for Use and Care of the Nextmug

Is there a User Manual for the Nextmug?

Yes. Click here to see a PDF of the User Manual, which should answer your basic questions about how to use the mug.

How do I turn the Nextmug on and off and set the temperature for drinking my beverage?

Press the Control Button (immediately under the Nextmug logo on the mug) as follows:

  • Press once to turn the mug on - this will also set the mug to the “Warm” setting (130 degrees)
  • Press twice to turn the mug to the “Hot” setting (140 degrees)
  • Press a third time to set to the “Piping” setting (150 degrees)
  • Press a fourth time to turn the mug off

How do I track the temperature of my beverage in the Nextmug?

What temperature should I choose for my beverage?

This is strictly based on personal preference and may take some experimentation to see exactly where you prefer to drink your hot beverage. Most people tend to prefer their coffee at between 130 degrees (the Nextmug’s “Warm” setting) and 140 degrees (the “hot” setting). However, some people prefer truly hot coffee or tea, so that’s where the 150 degrees “piping” setting should be used. We chose 150 degrees as the highest setting because coffee experts say that drinking your coffee much over 150 degrees causes you to not be able to taste the flavor of the beverage. The best advice is to try your beverage in the Nextmug at different temperature settings and see where your perfect flavor profile is.

Is there an ideal temperature in which to pour my beverage into the Nextmug?

We recommend pouring your beverage into the Nextmug at whatever temperature you prefer from your brewing/dispensing device. The Nextmug will then automatically heat or cool your beverage to the precise temperature that you have selected on the mug (warm, hot or piping) and then hold the temperature at that level. Microwaving your coffee is frowned upon by many coffee drinkers in that it changes the flavor profile of the coffee…and the Nextmug will eliminate your having to use the microwave to re-heat your beverage. 

Will the Nextmug affect the taste of my beverage

The Nextmug will only enhance the taste of your beverage in that it will hold your desired temperature without having to reheat it – which can cause the flavor profile to change.

What about using dairy products in my beverage?

The Nextmug has been designed to accommodate all types of beverages and contents, so dairy products will taste fine if dispensed into the mug. Please note that if you use dairy products in your coffee (milk, half and half, creamers, etc.), you may experience a “skin” that develops on your coffee after being in the mug for a prolonged period of time. If this happens, it is due to the fat content in the dairy product staying at a high temperature for a long period of time. While there is nothing wrong with this “skin” and it doesn’t affect the taste of your coffee, it can be eliminated by just scooping it off after it forms. We also recommend use of a coffee aerator or “frothing” device to add air to the dairy product – plus it makes the beverage taste great.

How do I use the Docking Coaster? How do I recharge the mug?

How should I use the lid?

A Spill-resistant Lid is included with your Nextmug. Use of the lid is optional. Some people like to use the lid because it cuts down on spills and makes it easier to tote the mug around your home or office. Others don’t like to use a lid because it affects how you interact with sipping your beverage. So…it’s totally up to you if you want to use the lid.

Another benefit of using the lid is that it will keep your beverage warmer for a longer period of time when your mug is not on the Docking Coaster.

How does the Auto Shut-Off function work?

If the mug is On, but liquid is not present in the mug, all lights will blink simultaneously for about 10 seconds and then the mug will shut off automatically after 60 seconds.

If the mug is On and liquid is present, the mug will automatically shut off when it has not been moved for 2 hours while docked.

What is the best way to clean the Nextmug, Docking Coaster and Spill-Resistant Lid?

For the mug, hand wash with warm water and soap after every use. Be sure not to submerge the mug in water and be sure the mug is dry before placing it back on the docking coaster. We also recommend occasionally wiping down the docking coaster with a damp cloth. It is important that both the Nextmug and the docking coaster be fully dry when you place the mug on the coaster to avoid corrosion which may affect the connectivity between the two.  

The lid is dishwasher safe. If you notice any discoloration of the silicone ring around your lid, this is due to buildup of coffee and tea residue over time. Simply remove the ring from the lid and hand wash: (1) the ring itself and (2) the grooves the ring fits into on the lid.

Can I put the Nextmug in the dishwasher or the microwave?

No. You should handwash the Nextmug and avoid putting it in the dishwasher because of “smart mug” technology that sits within the mug. The Nextmug should also never be placed in the microwave (there is no reason for it to go in the microwave because the mug will hold the temperature of your beverage, so you won’t have to warm it up).

Is there an app available for the Nextmug?

No. In designing the Nextmug we wanted to make it simple to use. So even though the Nextmug is very smart, there’s no setting up an app on your phone or computer. No passwords, no re-booting and no security concerns. You’ll be using your Nextmug within a minute of taking it out of the box, and it takes only seconds to set the mug to your perfect temperature every time you use it.
