In the past, my wife and I just drank out of our BPL Firelite 550 mug after we used it to boil water for FBC. But I'm now thinking of moving to cooking in the pot (and a larger pot), so I'm looking for a separate mug since my pot will be tied up with the food.
My Snowpeak titanium mug weighs in at 31 g on my scale. It has a capacity of 1.25 cups. The great thing about it too is that you can use it as a measuring cup of sorts (although it doesn't have gradations on the side). I could trim off the handle maybe, and get it down to around 1 oz.
Is there anything lighter out there, maybe around 0.5 oz? Something free? I'm thinking cheap disposable cups here. Styrofoam doesn't seem quite durable enough, and I don't like the stuff (it's not healthy).May 12, 2013 at 11:06 am #1985505
Those Mac N' Cheese cups work good. It's small enough and it can fit inside a pot and it has a single graduation line inside the cup that you can use for measuring.May 12, 2013 at 11:20 am #1985510

Apologies, but I don't know how to make these URLs an actual hyperlink. This forum software is far from user-friendly compared to some.May 12, 2013 at 12:34 pm #1985522

I use cola can cup. It's 330ml which is enough for me for 1 hot drink. It weigh 25 gram. I made a cozy for it out of some sort of microfiber cloth. The cozy is 5 grams. This keep my drink hot for very long time. Much longer than regular porcelain mugs.
Very easy to make: just cut with the can opener the top of a can.
For me it is also easily disposable cup, since I make another for 1 minute for free.
Very convenient to drink out of it!
In two words: highly recommended.May 12, 2013 at 12:35 pm #1985523
Will likely bring more joy and style to your life than a piece of disposable plastic.

Just sayin'. :)May 12, 2013 at 2:38 pm #1985557
Is lightest non-disposable ootion. Just use your SP to measure AND as a mug and get a 1.6 oz. SP Bowl (for sale on their web site with and without a handle) to boil your water. I usually just use an 850 or 700 for everything, but their are times I schlep a 2,4 oz 450 ti cup when I think their might be a call for a handy brverage at all times (i.e., winter hot drinks and summer libations).May 12, 2013 at 3:16 pm #1985565
The small easy-mac microwavable mac and cheese is it.
0.45 oz and plenty strong, with a layer of insulation so you can hold hot coffee in your hand. Its made for hot liquid.
I usually take a small 8 oz styrofoam cup in my cook pot. 0.1 oz. though.
Tried the campbells soup, heavy with metal rim and plastic lid.
Also seems impossible to get soup smell out of . Nasty.May 12, 2013 at 4:51 pm #1985586

I have been using the "Generic 1 cup capacity Ridged Flat bottom aluminum can" from zelph. It is really about 1.5 cups.
I made a reflectix cozy, so it is prolly a little over 1 oz altogether.
I don't know if he still sells them, but he will likely give you one if you buy something else.May 13, 2013 at 3:00 am #1985670
