A Purse that Charges Your Phone (And Still Looks Good)

When your phone runs low, this purse can save the day.When your phone runs low, this purse can save the day.

We've all been there: Your phone says it has 10% juice left and you're nowhere near an outlet.

Whether I'm traveling, running errands, or even spending a night out on the town, I'm always worried that my phone's charge won't last. And while I've seen lots of products that can charge or extend the battery life -- from cases to clutches -- I've always found them to be too bulky or not stylish enough for my taste. So I was thrilled to learn of a new brand that mixes fashion and function. emPOWERED, which just launched on Tuesday, released its first style: the All-in-One bag.

Made with leather and sporting a simple silhouette, the bag has a built-in charger that can take your phone's battery from 0 to 100% and can power anything with a USB connection, like your iPhone, Android, Kindle, or camera. Plus, this bag has a versatile design: You can wear it as a purse with a long strap, carry as a clutch on date night, or tuck in into a larger purse. Honestly, I think it's stylish enough to wear even without the charging bonus.
