Litecup

No-Spill Nightlight Cup

Snooze & Sip

Even at night, this light-up sippy cup won’t spill, break, or hide.

When the lights are off, Litecup emits a blue glow so you don’t have to fumble in the dark. In fact, you can drink from anywhere on the lid—there’s a 360-degree valve. You need to almost act like you’re using a sippy cup to draw the water out. And when you’re done, the valve locks automatically.

So even if you knock it over, it won’t spill.

Kids will get a
reassuring nightlight and save their parents trips to the kitchen. But this cup works well for grownups, too, keeping a midnight drink at arm’s reach.

Product Designer and father of three, Gavin Reay, engineered Litecup with his kids in mind. He wanted to encourage independent, mess-free drinking and easy refill.

With this bedside companion, kids and grownups can rest happily hydrated.

    @Vicki

    Thanks for asking. The cup has a battery powered light pack in the base. It is powered by a watch style battery that has a light sensor. The battery is encased in it's own housing component, which is secured in the base. It is easily removable by using a spoon to pop it out and remove it. Make sure to remove the light pack before putting it in the dishwasher.

    Does the lumen affect the taste of the water or beverage?

    Hi Diane. No affect on the taste of the beverage. The light pack is in it's own housing component.

    what keeps the light on? Does it need batteries? How long will it last?

    @Susan

    Great question! The cup has a built in light sensor. When the light is on in the room the sensor turns the cup light off to save the battery. When the light is off in the room the cup automatically turns on. It runs on a standard watch style battery. The battery should last around 3 months under normal usage.

    Can the entire cup go into the dishwasher & how long will the light up feature last? Is there anything to replace to keep it lit?

  • John

    @Lori

    All of the cup components are dishwasher safe except for the light pack. You can easily pop out the light pack before putting it in the dishwasher. The battery should last around 3 months under normal usage. The battery can easily be replaced as needed.

    Does it just glow or is there a light source built in. Is the entire cup dishwasher safe? Is the cup BPA free? Do you need to "charge" it in the light for it to glow?

    The cup has a battery powered LED light pack. All of the cup is dishwasher safe except for the light pack. Just pop out the light pack before putting it in the dishwasher.

    Yes, the cup is BPA free. No need to charge the light. Just replace the battery as needed. One battery is included.

    @Ronald

    Ronald. We recommend keeping the cup refrigerated and not frozen. Freezing the cup with liquid in it can expand causing damage to the cup base.

    @Lynne

    It is not designed as an insulated cup. However, a cold beverage can be put in it and will remain cool for some time.

    I just want to say WHAT A GREAT IDEA!! I have to take a thyroid pill at a very early hour well before I get up. It can be quite an adventure! I've been looking for something just like this -- but it's even better than I was looking for. Thanks!

    @Melissa

    Thank you for your kind words. My kids use it at night, and I have found it comes in very handy when they are sick. They may need to take medicine in the night and the light provides enough illumination to see what we are doing without turning on the full overhead light.

    What type of plastic is the cup made from? Is is BPA-free, etc. If it's used by a child, I want the plastic as benign as possible.

    Does it come in other colors? Recent data show that blue light disrupts brain waves and sleep patterns, whereas red light does not. I would love this if it glowed red!

    Have you thought about making the cup insulated to keep drinks cool longer?

  • John
    John – Special Guest
    10/18/2016 11:22 AM

    @Susan

    Thanks for the suggestion Susan. Insulating the cup may take away the effectiveness of the light up feature, but it is certainly something to consider.

    The Litecup uses the CR2032 battery, which is easily purchased at most convenient stores. Thanks for asking.

    Since the cup is not insulated, I assume that it "sweats" with cold liquids in it?

  • John
    John – Special Guest
    10/18/2016 11:58 AM

    @EDNA

    Hi Edna. Even though we have not experienced this, it is possible that the cup can sweat when filled with a cold liquid. Condensation can occur on the outside of the cup depending on humidity levels in the air. It would be a good idea to use a coaster if concerned.

    Before this product, I have never before received an email from Grommet, watched the video and placed an order for not 1, not 2 but 3 of the launch items as fast as I could get my credit card out!

    I have ordered one of these for my mother, my mother in law and myself. Thank you for all of your efforts you have dedicated to this product!

    Can the cup he used by coffee drinkers? If so, how long will coffee stay hot? What is the oz capacity? Is blue the only color?

    Hi Jeffrey. The cup can hold hot liquids as well as cold. Even though it is not insulated it will keep your drink hot / cold for a while. The cup holds 11oz.

    The cup is available in Red, Blue, Pink, and Green.

    If the cup is BPA free what chemical is used instead of the BPA?

    The cups are made with polypropylene and the drinking valve is made of medical grade silicone.
