What about the superior heat transfer properties of aluminium? I wouldn’t claim that my testing was by any means conclusive but on average, 300ml of water could be brought to a rolling boil 30 seconds faster in the aluminium mug. I fully appreciate that getting your brew half a minute earlier will make no difference to the quality of your life but it does open up the possibility of potential fuel savings, which over a longer period, could mean you carrying less weight.
The reality is that if you already have a Ti mug, you’re unlikely to bother changing it as the benefits of the Bugaboo probably aren’t enough of an incentive. However, if you are considering making a purchase, then at less than a tenner, I think it’s worthy of serious consideration. The only downside is that it doesn’t come with a lid, if it did, then it’d be near to perfect … but a piece of foil works very well and weighs next to nothing.
