Never run out of battery again!
Ever notice that your smartphone dies JUST when you need it most? We set out to build something so powerful and easy to use, it would make charging your phone an afterthought. To charge, all you have to do is slip your phone into the special charging pocket inside the purse! Whether you're at work or out on the town, your Everpurse will keep your phone charged all day long. You can carry your Everpurse inside a bigger bag, or by itself. When you get home, simply drop your Everpurse on the white charging mat for wireless charging!
Trust us, we know how powerful this product is. We have become addicted to it. We are no longer scared of running out of battery. No longer scared to lose another phone call, another set of directions, another awesome Instagram picture or another Facebook comment.
Charge with style!
You shouldn't have to decide between fashion and function, so we teamed up with two Chicago designers to help design our bags. You can choose between 3 colors in fabric and leather, or help us pick out additional colors! All purses come with a charging mat.
A la carte options
Want another Everpurse for yourself, but don't need another mat? Just add another 99 for fabric or 129 for leather. If you want a second mat but not a second Everpurse, simply add 30 to your pledge. Want to spice up your mat with a personalized love note or your company’s logo? Just add 50 to your pledge.
Who we are?
My husband (a serial technology entrepreneur and prototyping enthusiast) and I (a social worker) started building Everpurse for fun over a year ago. It began as a quest to make the perfect purse. One that would let me go through the whole day without ever thinking about charging my phone. It also had to look gorgeous. I was tired of awful charging solutions that were bulky, ugly, and simply a pain to use. Many prototypes and iterations later, we've gotten it down to a beautiful science! Everpurse is now patent-pending and ready to manufacture.
How much more power?
Everpurse comes with enough battery power to take your iPhone from 0% to 100% twice over! You can leave home early in the morning, go through a full day of work (Facebooking, Instagramming, games, calls and web surfing) and still have hours and hours left of battery when you go out to dinner or party into the early morning.
What are we going to do with your money? Build Everpurses + Everpurse charging mats for as many backers as possible!
There will be plenty of colors, phone types, and extra options to choose from so you get exactly what fits your budget.
An Everpurse for everybody
We know that charging issues are universal, and we wouldn’t leave anyone out! Our black Everpurse is great for men. Just toss it in a gym bag, backpack (or murse!)
You can make it happen!
To get the Everpurse from our small-run production, to the cutting edge factories and caring hands that will put it together, and finally into your life, we need YOU!
We want you to take part in the new revolution where you are in control of your battery life! Choose the reward choice that best fits your life and stay in control.
Production Plan (aka, the technical stuff)
We have done our homework, made hundreds of calls, held dozens of meetings and poured through tons of technical proposals. Due to all this we are delighted to have world-class manufacturing partners ready to start building your very own Everpurse! We have produced over a dozen fully functioning prototypes out in the world. The details of our production plans are as follows:
- We have three sets of production partners chosen, each set specifically suited for different levels of production, depending on how successful our kickstarter campaign is!
- NOTE: Some of the components in the Everpurse will be purchased pre-built and pre-certified to speed up our delivery date and eliminate any issues with patenting wars. These specific components will be purchased at all production levels, regardless of where we manufacture the Everpurse technology.
- Our Everpurse bags have been custom designed by two local designers with years of experience and already established production supply chains. These bags have been designed not only with style in mind, but also ease of assembly and functionality.
- At all production levels the Everpurse cloth and leather bags will be built right here in the USA. Leather bags will be built in Chicago. We are passionate about keeping as many jobs as possible in the USA!
- Final assembly of the Everpurses (putting all components in the bags) will take place in the USA.
Production cost estimates
- We have done all our production cost modeling based on several key metrics. First off, we have been building fully-functioning Everpurses with off-the-shelf electronics, some of which we have had to modify. We then quoted all the parts at wholesale prices and received quotes at 50% cost savings vs. retail pricing. Granted, this still required us to custom modify everything from cables to circuit boards, but we know that we can build all the Everpurses with what we are raising on Kickstarter.
For those who chose the reward level for voting and choosing additional color(s), you can now check them out and start planning your vote! First, the leather:
And the fabric:
Yes it will. We want the new iPhone just as badly as you do! We have tested the Everpurse docking mechanism on a wide range of docking options, including all the purported docking options for the upcoming iPhone, to ensure that it will work without a hitch.
Everpurse will work with the top selling Android phones. We will announce the final lineup soon.
Everpurse will charge your phone from 0% to 100% approximately twice in one day. (And you can even leave your phone in the purse while it's on its charging mat for more charging power!)
Pledge now, choose color later :) Once the kickstarter completes we will send you a super quick email inside of Kickstarter where you will get to choose your final color decision!
Don't worry! While we hate to see a pretty bag get dirty, all the technology in your Everpurse is safely encased behind the lining.
Nope, you don't need a case or modifications for the Everpurse to work with your phone. Just drop the phone in the pocket and it starts charging. Our patent-pending docking system physically connects to the phone to start charging.
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.
The Fabric Everpurse weights 10 oz. The Leather Everpurse weighs about 12.5 oz. Super light and easy to carry.
Yes. All of the Everpurse's Leather or Fabric come with a zipper.
You sure can. All Leather Everpurses come with a matching Leather wristlet, however, if you want a cross-body strap version you need to include $30 to your pledge. Note: The cross-body strap version cannot be converted to a wristlet version though.
