There is nothing worse than seeing the low battery alert on your smartphone at an inconvenient time.  There are many bulky devices to recharge your phone but who want to carry them around?

Now there are purses and wallets with chargers built in or hidden inside.  Fully powered, these devices can recharge a smart phone twice.

The emPowered bags are universally compatible – they will charge iPhones, Androids, Kindles, digital cameras and more.  The charging source is built into the lining of each bag.  In their wallets, the charger is built into the leather.  Their bags have been enormously popular and many options are on back order.  The All In One bag comes in a wide selection of colors and styles.  It comes with a cross body strap.   This pink snake All In One bag is $175.00.

MightyPurse is compatible with iPhones, Androids, Smartphones and tablets. iPhone 5 & 6 need an adaptor which is included in the purse.   There are nine different bag styles including a backpack, and one wallet.  The wallet comes in six colors.  It is $99.99.

MightyPurse has over 50 Wristlets to choose from, ranging in price from $79.99 – $99.99. Wristlets can be worn on the wrist or stored in a day bag.  It has a concealed slimline battery.

The envelope bag can be worn as a wristlet, as a shoulder bag with the enclosed strap, or as a clutch.  $119.00.

Triple C makes a nice looking Power Wallet that has a removable wrist strap and a hidden lightweight high capacity battery.  The battery works with iPhones 6/5S/5/5C with an enclosed Apple adapter and all micro-USB smartphones including Samsung, BlackBerry, HTC, LG and other Android devices. There are six colors and patterns to choose from.  $79.99.

One of my favorite purse charging bags is this large tote bag by emPowered.  It is currently sold out but you may request to be notified when it is back in stock.  It is black leather, lightweight, and 14” x 11.5” x 6.5”.  It was selling at $289.00.  I do not know if that will still be the price when it comes back in stock.
