How it works | Everpurse

Everpurse has a special charging pocket into which you place your smartphone. Our patent-pending docking system guides your phone smoothly onto a dock connector at the bottom–so you don’t have to fish for a cord!

To charge Everpurse itself, you can simply place Everpurse on its charging mat. It uses inductive charging to send energy wirelessly from the mat to the purse, so you never have to plug the purse in! You can leave a charging mat plugged in wherever it’s convenient for you–at work, at home, wherever–and drop Everpurse onto it when it needs charging. We suggest leaving Everpurse on its charging mat overnight, and it will have a full charge the next morning.

$189.00–$329.00, depending upon how well-developed your fashion sense is.
