We have received feedback from customers that there are times when your mug may become unpaired with your phone. This can be quite annoying and troublesome. We have worked on this, and have released an update that addresses these connectivity issues for both iPhone and Android phones.
IMPORTANT: If you have not done so already, please update your mug to the latest firmware. You should be on firmware 271 or later. If you are having problems staying connected in order to do the update, please follow the steps below to re-connect your mug, then perform the update.
Try the following steps to re-connect your mug:
Confirm the Ember Mug is Powered ON
If you are experiencing difficulty reconnecting your Ember Mug to your mobile device please first confirm that your Ember is powered ON. You can ensure your mug is ready for use by giving it a light shake while off the charging coaster to move the internal accelerometer. This will illuminate the LED for a brief moment if the Ember is powered ON and ready to connect. If no LED activity is seen, giving the power button a single press will power on your Ember.
If your Ember LED is showing a solid RED, click here for next steps.
Turn the Bluetooth OFF on your mobile device from the bluetooth settings. After doing so, please allow at least 30 seconds in the OFF state before proceeding to turn ON the bluetooth connectivity. (Please note that toggling the bluetooth from the control center on iOS devices vs with the bluetooth settings will not successfully perform the proper procedures that need to be completed).
To ensure the connectivity is working, allowing the Bluetooth to completely power OFF and power back ON will assure a working connected device.
