It’s a Kickstarter project started by married couple Dan and Liz Salcedo. Essentially, you place your phone in a purse, or a purse insert (which is essentially a smaller bag you put inside your main bag), and it charges your phone on the go. Oh, and it’s entirely wireless.
It works by using the Qi standard for inductive charging of the Everpurse battery. According to co-founder Dan Salcedo, the purse takes about 6 hours on a charging pad to be fully charged, and provides twice the battery life of your iPhone. In other words, when your phone is almost dead, you can pop it in the Everpurse and get it back to a full-charge in no time.
Within the Everpurse itself, there are no wires, but there is a dock. You slip your phone in and gravity takes care of the rest, plugging in the phone and getting it charging.
According to Salcedo, the battery and receiver combined weigh only 6 ounces. He also mentioned that dudes aren’t averse to the Murse. As much as 10 percent of Everpurse’s Kickstarter orders are coming from men who would like a black model to slip into their backpack. Or whatever.
In the future, the dynamic (and married) duo would like to create suit jackets and pants that do the same thing. Though, they say that the clothes probably won’t arrive until the Everpurse campaign is closed.
Kickstarter is the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. Every week, tens of thousands of people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, games, fashion, food, publishing, and other creative fields. Since its launch on April 28th, 2009, more than two million people have pledged more than $300 million to projects by creators who always maintain full ownership and complete creative control of their work.
