The Yecup is a thermos that will heat up or cool down your drink


Coffee and tea from home always taste the best because everything is to your exact specifications. Well, that and it’s actually fresh, and hot. We put them into a thermos and sip casually on the way into work, but if you’re not quick about it you’ll be stuck downing a cold, sad drink. Thankfully there are some pretty decent quality thermos options out there, but how many of them will heat up your drink rather than keeping it the same temperature?

The Yecup is a stainless steel thermos with a lot of technology packed inside to keep your drink a steady temperature, heat it up, or cool it down. It’s controlled through an app on your phone, but worry not, even if your phone dies it has some preset buttons for you to use. Of course, if your charging cable is handy, you could just plug your phone into the bottom of the cup and recharge it since there’s a 10,000 mAh battery inside. The outside logo indicator light will let you know if it’s heating, cooling, or charging, and the leakproof lid makes it so this can be tossed in your bag without worry of ruining everything.

This comes with a NFC charging plate, so you won’t have to worry about another wire to plug in at the end of the day. If you’re stuck in a meeting and want to warm up your coffee at your desk, you’ll need to be within 200ft for it to start working its magic. Once it hits the temperature you entered, it will send you an alert so you know it’s time to get down to business. There are 12 and 14 ounce options, and you’ll be looking at paying out around $115 or more (and an additional $25 for the charging plate) to secure one for yourself.
