Everpurse - The iPhone Charging Purse That Will Triple Your Smartphone's Battery Life
If you’re anything like me (or the other 1.75 billion smartphone users on Earth) you must know how annoying it is to look at your phone’s screen at noon and see your battery only has 30% left for the rest of the day!
This is a constant problem of smartphones and I really hope manufacturers will be able to squeeze-in 5x-10x batteries in the near future! But, until then, although I tried many improving battery gadgets like iPhone Power Pack Cases, magnetic back covers and even the TsirTech battery wristband, finishing my day with battery juice left seems to be a rare miracle! (P.S. I even tried some of Gargamel’s highly rated black magic … still no luck!!!).

But, there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel! At least for the ladies in our lives! Enter the EverPurse!
The EverPurse can be used as a standalone purse or as a purse insert and contains a built-in battery and charging dock for smartphones. Once you finish using your phone, simply slide it into the EverPurse and it starts charging right-away!

While on the outside it looks like real magic, here’s how things work on the inside: EverPurse features a special pocket with a smartphone charging dock. When you insert your phone in this special pocket, the bag guides it to perfectly connect with the dock and starts charging your phone. The EverPurse has an internal battery which can give 2 extra charges to your iPhone and can be charged by USB cable or wirelessly, using the included wireless charging pad that comes with the bag.

The EverPurse is made of natural leather, comes in a range of colors and models, can be used with iPhone 5/5s/5c or Samsung Galaxy S5. Available for pre-order with delivery in December 2014.

Energizer XP18000 Universal Power Bank
We featured many power banks here at CoolPile.com, but, for some reason, we always focused on external batteries designed to charge small gadgets such as smartphones, digital cameras, tablets, basically everything powered and charged by USB cables! Check out some them here: the JunoJumpr, the PoweriSite, the PowerPak Ultra, the TsirTech smartphone wrist band charger, the PowerFlask and so on …

Now it’s time we get more serious into this power banks situation! A while back I was looking for an extended battery for my laptop and soon I realized that it makes no sense to put money into an battery which will serve only one gadget – my laptop. So I decided to go for an battery powerful enough to charge my laptop, versatile enough to allow multiple gadgets charging and lightweight enough to comfortably carry it in my daily backpack!

While I am still researching the subject and I did not settle for a model yet, the Energizer XP18000 seems to be a serious contender! The device is truly universal, can charge just about anything that gets power juice via USB and can add up to 5 hours of usage to a regular laptop or up to 8 hours of use to smaller netbooks.

The Energizer XP18000 can recharge up to 3 devices at the same time, comes with 3 power cables, 6 cell phone tips, 3 media tips, 9 laptop tips, an AC adapter and a carrying bag. The XP18000 is also part of the Free Tips For Life Energizer program which allows users to get 2 free charging tips every year, for the life time of their registered power bank! So no worry if you buy a new gadget!
