Purse with Power!


There are few things in life more frustrating than a dead phone. And they always seem to die just when we need them most. Coming to the rescue is the Mighty Purse with its built-in rechargeable battery capable of bringing phones or other devices back to life. The clutch leather bag is available in a range of colours and compatible with MicroUSB Smartphones and iPhones.

This cute looking luxury leather clutch is set to be a must-have accessory when it arrives in the UK this November, perfect Chrissy gift too! Fusing fashion with technology the Mighty Purse charges a mobile phone on the go. With a removable wrist strap it can be used as a clutch or as a purse. You can also keep money, cards, keys and lipstick in there too, with two compartments, credit card sleeves and an internal zipped pocket. Hidden away is the best bit; the discreet, ultra-light yet powerful battery that can charge Smartphones two times over.

Featuring a built-in Micro-USB cord and two adapters, the Mighty Purse is compatible with a variety of smart devices including Samsung Galaxy, BlackBerry ®, Apple® phones, tablets and MP3 players. The battery is then simply recharged by connecting to a USB port. In the first collection to hit the UK the core range colours are: Icy Purple, Poppy Pink, Emerald Green, Black Shimmer, Gold Shimmer and Lizard Grey. Who comes up with these names?! What’s not to love!
