The Everpurse clutch charges your smartphone or phablet on the go, wire-free. Stay stylish & powered up to 96 hrs! iPhone 6 compatible.

About this project

Everpurse brings together fashion and technology seamlessly, keeping you powered and looking as stylish as ever. Each minute your phone is in your Everpurse you get 1% more charge, up to 48 hours. Need even more power? With the Everpurse Fab battery level, you get double the battery power up to 96 hours. Wherever you are, you know you’ll be charged and ready to go.

Whether you’re dropping your phone into the charging pocket or laying your Everpurse on the charging mat, you’ll never have to fumble with any wires or cables ever again.

Everpurse is stylish and powerful with gorgeous Saffiano leather and sleek technology. It comes with removable cross-body and wristlet straps so you can stay powered without ever sacrificing your personal style. Use it as a shoulder bag, drop in your large handbag, or just carry it around as a cross-body. Stay charged and always look classy. *Everpurse is also available in black Vegan Saffiano leather.

Crafted with high-quality Saffiano leather, the new Everpurse is more powerful, roomier and sleeker. You wanted just a tad more space for that extra lipstick and business card case, and with the new Everpurse, you’ve got it. We’re also delighted to partner with a top technology company to create an incredibly thin and powerful system that will keep you charged for up to 96 hours. *Everpurse is also available in black Vegan Saffiano leather. 

The new charging mat is now thinner, smaller, and smart. It communicates with your Everpurse and quietly shows you when the battery is fully charged. Blue means charging; green means go. Also, the new charging mat is now World-ready! It is USB powered, allowing you to charge off a USB 3.0 port or any country specific USB adapter. 

The 2015 Everpurse supports a wide range of top-selling smartphones and phablets. Changing phone types takes a mere seconds thanks to our patented docking system. 

Measure battery power in days. We redesigned the entire core technology of the Everpurse for 2015 to give you faster charging, less weight, and up to 320% more power- all while reducing the thickness of the technology by 70%.

For the power-users, we created the Fab battery option. The Fab battery option gives you double the battery while still being 40% thinner than the original, perfect for Phablet users looking for days of power, and for smartphone users looking for up to 96 hours of worry-free and wire-free power.

Not only were we able to dramatically reduce the overall size of the internal technology, making it about 70% thinner than the first generation, we also made it lighter and yet twice as powerful as before. Much of these advances are thanks to our partnership with one of the top technology companies in the world. We are thrilled to share that the 2015 Everpurse is using Samsung SDI Li-ion battery cells. Samsung SDI makes the most advanced, powerful, yet light batteries. This means having more battery capacity in your Everpurse without adding any weight or thickness. It means more calls, more storage, and less worrying.

The original Everpurse was built in our office by hand. At the time, there was no factory that would manufacture a complete Everpurse. We worked day and night perfecting the manufacturing methodology. With the 2015 Everpurse, we have laid out the groundwork for high-quality higher-volume manufacturing.

This time we are working with an Apple-certified factory whom we have done business with for several years. Also, we have already established unique categories for Everpurse with the FCC and U.S. customs, which will ease the shipping and regulatory process. We printed out the first 2015 Everpurse in December 2013 and have been perfecting the product since then. This has allowed us to source and design all the materials to build the new Everpurse, including a fully certified battery, wireless charging components, certified Apple connectors, Saffiano leather, and gold handbag hardware.

Risks and challenges

In 2013, we created the methodology for manufacturing and shipping thousands of Everpurse clutches to backers in over 50 countries around the globe. Based on all the lessons learned along the way, we have setup our manufacturing to be faster, smoother, and more predictable than before.

However, there are often unforeseen challenges that we sometimes have little to no control over.  Delays from our suppliers is the primary issue we could encounter, which is why we have selected suppliers with ample on-hand inventory, reducing the risk that we would not have enough parts to manufacture. Second is shipping. Sometimes governments complicate the shipping of a product for a myriad of reasons. We have worked on mitigating this issue by having a globally pre-determined HTS (customs) code for our product, a FCC ID, and trademarking our brand name (many shipping delays can be copyright based). Beyond these main areas of potential delay, which we have carefully worked to mitigate, there is always the possibility of other events or situations of which we are not yet aware, which could delay our shipping time. In this event we will work around the clock to get the product into your hands as timely as possible.

FAQ

  • Everpurse has a special charging pocket that you drop your phone into. 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.

    Last updated:
  • To recharge your Everpurse, simply lay it on our wireless charging mat overnight, for a minimum of 6 hours, and in the morning your Everpurse will be ready to go! The mat comes with a USB cord, allowing you to plug your mat into a USB wall plug, computer, or even a plane! While charging, the front of the charging mat will display a blue light on the front of the charging mat; when the bag is fully charged, the light will turn green. You can leave your mat plugged in wherever it is most convenient for you - dresser, kitchen counter, or your office desk - there is no need to take it with you throughout the day.
