It’s some annoying law of modern life that your phone will always run out of power when you most need it and are farthest away from an outlet or charger. I never run out of power the moment I walk through my door at the end of a night. It’s always when I’m in the back of a cab trying to figure out where I am and where my friends are that the screen goes black.
“Where are you going?” the driver asks.
“Well now I don’t know, because it was in my phone.”
So a purse that carries around a couple of spare charges for you could be the most fabulous accessory ever.
OK, the Mighty Purse by Handbag Butler (which makes those little hooks to attach your purse to the side of the table) might not be the most eye-catching accessory. It’s basically just a plain leather clutch. But it does have a battery in it and can re-charge your phone, which, when you are out of power, would be better than standing around with a dead phone and a Birkin. (Of course, the Mighty Purse is small enough to go inside the Birkin, which sounds like the best route if you can take it.)
There have, of course, been phone-charging purses before, but we’re stoked to find a cute one in leather and plenty of good colors. The under-$100 price tag is also a huge bonus.
According to the site, “The Mighty Purse features a hidden high capacity rechargeable battery that can recharge your smartphone up to 2x per charge.”
So you will need to recharge your purse every once in a while, but not nearly as often as we currently have to charge our phones.
