It’s commonplace nowadays to find yourself in dire need of an outlet to juice up your mobile device, and to be hopelessly out of luck. In my experience, there are outlets everywhere when I have no need for them, and they are scarce as hen’s teeth when my phone is at 4%. There is simply no way to charge your phone in the middle of the cereal aisle, and when you’re waiting on a text with the incredibly important decision of Frosted Flakes or Captain Crunch it’s essential to have a working phone.
The Mighty Purse: Charging Phones in a Single Bound!
For my 22nd birthday, my incredibly clever and tech-savvy bestie presented me with one of the coolest gadgets I have in my possession. The Mighty Purse from Handbag Butler contains a Lithium-ion Polymer battery and a Micro-USB cord to save you in those life or death situations. The USB cable plugs in to your phone power adapter or computer USB port to get going, assuring that you can charge your iPhone, Android, or other mobile devices. The purse’s battery holds enough power to charge up your smart phone twice, and possibly three times if you’re lucky.
The purse is a convenient clutch size with a coin zipper and slots for your identification and credit cards. The USB cord fits snuggly into the middle zipper, and extends enough to reach your cell phone in the side pocket.
Because it is a smaller handbag, you can actually fit the entire thing inside of a larger bag if you’re in need of the extra space. But, sometimes it’s nice to carry your belongings in something you don’t have to lug over your shoulder like Santa.The quality of the bag itself is great, with dependable zippers and a handy strap for carrying. The bags are made with high quality, genuine leather and come in various colors and finishes to suit every style and occasion.
It is important to remember that this awesome little accessory is not made from fairy magic, and should not become your primary source of power for your device. From 0% it can take 6 or 7 hours to charge your Mighty Purse, and it is recommended that you charge the purse overnight with your phone charger. Juicing up each phone or mobile device can take anywhere from 25 minutes to an hour, depending on your phone and adapter. The Mighty Purse is best used as secondary charging device when you’re out and about and can’t make it to an outlet.
