Everpurse: The Clutch that Charges Your Mobile Phone
Using the Qi standard for inductive charging, the purse itself must be charged for six hours on a charging pad before use. Dan Salcedo says that give your iPhone two times more battery life — meaning that when your phone’s going dead at a party, you need only pop it into the bag to get it back into service with a minimum of downtime.
There is no dock, but a magnetic charger within the purse pulls your phone down into the plug and starts charging it once you’ve slipped it inside. And the technology isn’t heavy: in total, the battery and receiver combined weigh a grand total of six ounces.
Find it in a variety of colours on Everpurse.com. Guys are also welcome — isn’t function the perfect excuse to go man-bagging? But if the murse is too girly for your taste, the Salcedos say they’re working on suit jackets and pants with similar technology. They likely won’t appear, though, until the Kickstarter campaign is over.
No worries, though — the campaign ends in six days and they’ve already more than doubled their hoped-for $100,000 funding goal. Minimum pledges for the bag are sold out, but you can still lock yours down for just $129!
