Mighty Mug Barware - Stop Spilling Your Drink

Mighty Mug Barware - The Only Barware That Won't Fall Over

How many times have you been relaxing with a drink when, suddenly, you accidentally knock it over? It’s even worse when the spill is red wine on your carpet, craft brew on the laptop, or scotch on your pants.

Well, we put a stop to the madness. Move aside old-fashioned drinkware! 

The everyday worry of knocking a glass over became tiring, so we created a revolutionary solution to this universal problem: Mighty Mug Barware - the only barware that grips when knocked into.

Able to withstand knocks from 360 degrees, Mighty Mug Barware will not topple over if bumped into, but will lift up naturally when you go in for a sip. 

That means: say goodbye to murder scene looking wine stains, fried laptops, and embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions.

SmartGrip Technology - Some Next Level Ish

The Mighty Mug Barware collection grips to any smooth and solid surface such as your table, desk, counter, or bar.

Sorcery? Trick of the eye? No, the magic is in our patented Smartgrip technology. 

Not to be confused with a magnet or suction cup, the Smartgrip at the bottom of the cup creates a vacuum that locks the mug onto the surface - effectively preventing it from being knocked over. The vacuum is released instantly when the mug is lifted straight up (requiring no extra effort).

Specs

These new glasses are made out of crystal clear, BPA Free Tritan plastic – giving them enhanced clarity and making the Mighty Mug Barware an unbreakable collection.

Plus, all of the cups in this line are top rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

Each piece is uniquely designed to withstand toppling, while still holding the perfect amount of your beverage:  

Rewards

Whether you're getting Mighty Mug for yourself, gifting it to friends and family, buying it for your staff, or thanking your wedding guests with this as a parting gift - we have the perfect reward for you.

 All Kickstarter Rewards will ship before the items hit any retail outlets.

Born to Be Mighty. Born to Be Gifted. 

Mighty Mug Barware is the gift that will get your whole neighborhood talking. It arrives at your door ready to be gifted, so just wrap it up or throw it in a party bag and call it a day!

Mighty Mug on A Boat

In order to test Mighty Mug Barware, we took it out on the high seas, along with our original models for some high seas adventure. While we shattered a few beer bottles, Mighty Mug hung in for the adventure!

Return to Kickstarter

Since the successful launch of our travel mug last year, Mighty Mug has been featured in hundreds of publications around the world such as the New York Times, Core 77, Real Simple, The Verge and hundreds of other media outlets. After receiving press from around the world, many asked us for a Mighty Mug specially made to enjoy their adult beverages. 

So, we went to work and began designing a variety of glasses that will be able to hold any drink you choose. This new campaign is to drive the project’s finishing stage, so it can be delivered straight to your favorite bottle.

Help us by sharing Mighty Mug with your friends!

 
                                                                       

Faster + Better + Stronger = Mighty 

While our first campaign was a great success, we learned many important lessons that will help make this campaign run much more smoothly for backers.

#1 International Shipping:
For our first campaign, we shipped all packages via USPS (United States Postal Service). While this worked out well for US & Canada Backers, it was not optimal for International Backers (as it took their package 6 or more weeks to arrive).

Resolution: This year all International Backers will have their rewards shipped via an expedited manner and rewards will arrive in 7-10 of leaving our office.

#2 Tracking Information:
Another lesson we learned during our first campaign was that by shipping International packages by the USPS' least expensive option, backers were unable to track their packages from start to finish.

Resolution: This year, all International Backers will have their rewards shipped with tracking information that will update them up until the package reaches their door.

#3 Updates/ Customer Service:
During our first campaign we were not ready for the interest level Mighty Mug received. Thus, we were not ready for the amount of inquiries that came in. 

Resolution: This year, we have added Customer Happiness members to our team. All questions/inquiries during this campaign will be answered in 24 hours or less.

#4 Quality Improvement and Happiness Guarantee :
With each new model, we have advanced the technology and improved the quality of all Mighty Mugs. We are confident that you will absolutely love your Mighty Mug, but if you’re not 100% happy, we will replace it for you at any time.

Saving the World One Mug At a Time

Team Mighty
Team Mighty

We are a team of mechanical engineers and industrial designers that are dedicated to saving people from disastrous spills. So, we designed mugs that will not fall over when knocked into. We spent 4 years developing and perfecting Mighty Mug and its patented Smartgrip technology. We hope that you love Mighty Mug and that all of your days to come are spill free.

Praise From Our First Mighty Mug Launch

International Backers

We can ship Mighty Mug worldwide, with the exceptions of Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela. Please note that you may be responsible for duties, fees, and taxes applicable to your region.

For The Tech Savvy

Mighty Mug's innovative Smartgrip technology uses basic principles of physics by trapping air underneath its base when placed down. 

This unbelievably strong hold is possible because air cannot be stretched when the mug is pushed.

The real magic is experienced when the mug is lifted straight up. The air pressure is equalized instantly allowing the user to naturally lift the mug just as you would any other mug.

 At only half an inch in height, the Smartgrip puck that powers Mighty Mug is able to withstand between 5-10 lbs of force. Try that on your old drinkware!

Need help? We're here for you.
