I’ll let you in on a little secret. One that few people outside my family know about me. I am a klutz. Like not a mild, sometimes little bit clumsy type of klutz. Nope, I’m a full-on klutz with a capital K. I’m the one who will fall out of the canoe at the end of a 7-mile trek. I’m the one who will trip and fall walking up the steps to my front door. And I am the one that will pour hot tea all over myself in a fancy tea house when out to lunch with my daughter. Yep. That’s me.
However, I never realized that I needed a Mighty Mug to protect my workspace until I had the opportunity to test one. Now I’m hooked. If you work at a desk with your computer or laptop handy, this product is guaranteed to hold its ground and not fall if accidentally knocked over.
I work at home for hours every day. You’ll find me at my desk, the dining room table or at the table outside, answering emails, editing photos and pounding out blog posts. I have had my share of near mishaps- like the near tumble of my favorite beverage onto my keyboard. And of course, I always vowed to be more careful, but you know, I did establish that my coordination is a bit lacking at times.
I had no idea there was a product available to reduce the chances that my drinks would spill on my computer. Or on any other surface around the house. Then I heard about the Mighty Mug and I was intrigued. What makes Mighty Mug special? It’s BPA free, dishwasher safe, leak proof AND it features Smartgrip technology. Smartgrip is a new, patented technology that prevents the Mighty Mug from falling over when you accidentally knock into it.
How the Mighty Mug Works
Simply place the Mighty Mug on a smooth, flat, non-porous service, like your table or desk and the Smartgrip base will grip so you don’t spill your drink. The best way I can describe it is that it acts like a suction cup, but it’s not a suction cup. Make sense?
The Mighty Mug is available in a variety of colors and styles. You can choose from Stainless mugs, cups with straws and soon-to-come- barware! I chose a teal 16-oz. Mighty Mug Go Travel Mug for what I hope are obvious reasons. The Mighty Mug Go is available in red, black, cream, lilac, teal and stainless- silver, red and blue. I ordered the teal. Not only can I use this at home, but it’s also made to fit inside a car cup holder so I can use it on the go as well.

The Mighty Mug provides peace of mind knowing you can enjoy your favorite beverage at your work space and not ruin valuable papers or your laptop, it also doubles as entertainment for teens.
As a mom with older teens and 20-somethings, it amazes me what they find fascinating. Apparently, the Mighty Mug fits that category. They were enamored and spent several minutes trying to knock over my mug. We discovered that the Mighty Mug will fall over, but it’s not going to happen by a gentle nudge. I guess you could say the uses for the Mighty Mug are two-fold. It can protect your workspace or table surface while providing amusement for your grown children. Kind of like a game. Who can knock over the Mighty Mug first? The good news, even when they did give it a good whack and knocked it over, the Mighty Mug did not leak. I wonder if testing the Mighty Mug included a round with teenagers.
So, under regular useage, you can count on the Mighty Mug not to fall over. When abused by teenagers, you can count on the Mighty Mug not to leak when the lid is closed.
Here’s a peek at how it works:
“I love that I can have beverages while I’m working at my computer without the fear that they’ll tip over and ruin my laptop.”
