Dockable Stay-Warm Mug

A coffee/tea mug with a corresponding dock which keeps the contents warm

The concept is basically a mug with an electric "docking station" which keeps the contents of the mug warm (or brings it back up to temperature). Much like a perculator base, I suppose, but on a smaller scale.

The "docking station" would normally plug into your standard power outlet, thus being useful mainly when stationed an office desk. However, a built-in self-recharging battery and simple detach/attach/locking mechanism for both the power cord and the mug itself would allow the user to take their mug and temporarily attached base to meetings etc, where the now battery-powered docking station could warm the mug for the life of the battery (perhaps 1-2 hours).
