Bag Lust: The Mighty Purse

We are absolutely glued to our phones. Glued to them. You might even be reading this on your phone (hi, mobile readers). But, I often forget my iPhone charger (and sometime the cat gets all up in my gadgets and eats my cables). If I've got a long train journey, by the time I've read Buzzfeed, Brainpickings and finished playing around on Pinterest even though I'm using up all of my data looking at photos of ohmygodsobloodyadorable red pandas, I've run out of battery.

I want a Mighty Purse so much. As well as looking rather splendid, it'll charge my mobile phone. It would even charge my iPad (other tablet models are available) if I had one.

It works with a USB adapter, so you just need to charge your purse before you use it. It's compatible with smartphones and tablets and you'll get two phone charges per Mighty Purse charge. I'm guessing that will equate to one tablet charge. And it only weighs 200 grams. Basically: it's a lifesaver on a train to Edinburgh when you realise you've left your iPad charger at home and want to watch the rest of Party of Five season 1.

Given the apparent witchcraft and wizardry involved in making The Mighty Purse, I thought they'd have a higher price tag than £84.99. Now that's a lot for a purse (even a leather one), but portable chargers are bigger, clunkier, less useful and not actually that much cheaper. And they certainly don't come in lovely yellow and pink leather.

The Mighty Purse is sold out on their website (there's a waiting list and I'm on it), and Amazon have run out as well. BUT! All is not lost! Firebox have some in. Not for long, though. These are going to sell out pretty quickly and then everyone can carry on watching Party of Five on long train journeys and be very happy indeed.


  1. Surely it's just as easy to forget to charge your purse as it is to forget to charge your phone?! Very pretty though.

    1. It's not necessarily forgetting that's key with a portable charger (although as I mentioned, the purse has two charges in it). The key things for me is being caught without any battery left. The wifi in my bedroom is so bad that my battery runs down quickly just trying to find a strong signal and switching between that and 3G. If I need to watch videos for work or have a long Skype chat, I'm left with less battery life than I want for the rest of the day. If I'm lost (often), Maps run down the battery on my phone. Often I do have to charge more than once in a day. I don't often forget to charge my phone, I do often use it more than I plan to!

  2. Love these! They have loads of different colours in stock here:
