My phone and I are one. I don’t leave the house without it and if my battery charge dips below 50%, my soul dips below 50%.
The one other thing I’m guaranteed to have with me at all times is my purse. I suppose it makes sense to make these two essentials work in tandem to make my life easier, and that could be exactly what Elizabeth Ormesher Salcedo thought when she and spouse Dan Salcedo created the Everpurse, the handbag that charges your smartphone.
Beginning with a 2012 Kickstarter campaign, the device received more than double the contributions it needed to get off the ground with $238,187.
The Everpurse, which comes in many different styles, contains a pocket with a charge port, where your phone can charge up while you’re out and about. The purse itself charges up on its own charge pad, so you never have to deal with a chord.
This is one of those things that makes me wonder why it took so long to come to such fruition. No part of the device contains any technology that hasn’t existed for the past few years, i.e. handbags and charging pads, but it took two geniuses to put the pieces together and bring this purse into our lives.
GNO (Girls’ Night Out) just became a whole lot less stressful. I’m happy to know I no longer need to carry a string of cord that insists on tangling about itself at all times, nor awkwardly scavenge for an outlet in public places.
