The untippable Mighty Mug was on my list of last holiday minute gift ideas. Having seen various videos I was compelled to pick one up for my mom. I so was shocked and amazed at how well it stood up to being slapped around that I purchased two more!
Take a look at the video below where I give the Mighty Mug some really good hits! Many apologies for the poor quality. I was filming this in the basement – one of the hazards of having kids who need to sleep while daddy wants to film a video of abusing a travel mug! I’ll find a place for better lighting for the next set of product reviews.
Once you get a Mighty Mug in your hands you can’t help but try to tip it over; the best part is how well it just comes off the table as if by magic that you’ll get wondrous stares at the office.
Being designed to take a beating the Might Mug is constructed of high quality plastics which gives it a nice heft. It’s constructed in two sections with “Smart Grip” technology at the bottom. “Smart Grip” is the name for the magical suction like device that takes no effort to engage on a solid surface and the slight lifting of the top half causes the grip to be released. This mechanism, which is truly amazing, has the unfortunate drawback of making the mug very tall. It won’t fit in my Keurig Platinum Brewer and if you have a single cup coffee dispenser at work you may have issues trying to brew directly into the mug.
Buy this mug
For anyone that has a habit of knocking over their travel mugs the Mighty Mug is a must have purchase. It’s ability to stay put and release itself from a solid surface is amazing. It has the rare combination of being a budget gift that exceeds expectations – especially since we’re talking about a travel mug! The Mighty Mug goes for $20 CDN from ECS Coffee and for that price you can’t go wrong.
