My biggest complaint (other than the fact that I have two to tote around) is that they are always running out of charge. So when I saw this comment I was quite interested:
THREE: Get an Everpurse bag
No more panicking when your smartphone's battery is low. These small but stylish bags recharge your phone wherever you are and make sure you'll never miss that life-changing Facebook comment again.
Now while I think it's not a bad idea I have a number of hesitations:
- This only works with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or Samsung Galaxy S III - which means that it won't work with one of my current phones. Also what happens when the next version of the iPhone / Galaxy comes out?
- Most women I know have a range of handbags to suit different outfits - I actually have only two but I think I'm on the unusual side. Shelling out $200 for a couple of new small clutch purses seems a quite expensive way to go. I know you can put them in larger purses but then you'll have to remember to take them out to recharge them (which seems about as much work as remembering to take your phone out to charge it in the first place).
- You still have to remember to recharge the purse every day. Now I know that there are some super-organised people who always put their things in the exact same place all the time and then there is the rest of us who go through the "where are my keys?" hunt a couple of times a week (or more). I think this concept MIGHT work for the first group of people, not sure about the second!
