This is the heat activated lightsaber mug [AMAZON AFFILIATE LINK] you may have seen on Amazon. A black backdrop wraps around the white ceramic mug. The mug features ‘Star Wars’ written in large, block text at the top. A series of 13 lightsaber hilts encircle the bottom of the mug, each labeled with the name of the character that wields it. The lightsaber mug is a fun, novelty gift idea for a Star Wars fan.

When the mug is room temperature or cold, only the lightsaber hilts are visible on the mug, without the colorful blade. When you add hot water to mug, the all of the lightsabers gradually ‘light up’.
There are a few things to consider about the mug. The mug is not dishwasher or microwave safe (hand wash only). The lightsaber blade sections on the mug get very hot when liquid is added to the mug, so avoid touching them. Also, the mug can get scratched easily to keep silverware and sharp objects away from the mug.
When you pour hot water into the mug, the blades start ‘igniting’ quickly (there are no cool lightsaber sound effects, of course, unless you make your own!). The blade colors are: blue, green, red and purple. The blades begin ‘lighting up’ from the emitter area and continue extending up the mug. Initially, the blades stop illumining at the water line, but as the mug continues to warm up, the blades extend all the way to the rim of the mug.
The lightsaber colors are quite bright and vibrant. I decided to makes some Earl Grey tea in my mug (Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.). The mug looks cool both with or without the illuminated lightsaber blades. The lightsabers on the mug include: Qui-Gon Jinn, Kit Fisto, Darth Vader, Anakin / Luke Skywalker (Graflex), Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul, Luke Skywalker / Anakin (Graflex), Count Dooku, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Asajj Ventress, Mace Windu, Luke Skywalker (ROTJ). Yes, the Graflex-style lightsaber appears twice–the angle of the hilt is different on each depiction of the hilt.
This is a 12 ounce mug, which is a pretty common, standard size. A larger 20 ounce mug is available as well. The mug, which is called “Star Wars Mug, Lightsabers Appear With Heat”, is manufactured by Benair USA and available for purchase on Amazon.
