Everyone–including techie fashionistas and ladies who launch–tends to encounter the same problem when it comes to smartphones: most have a battery life that lasts only slightly longer than a coat of longwear lipstick. But here comes Kickstarter to the rescue! Introducing the Everpurse, a cute little clutch that will charge your phone on-the-go so that you’ll never run out of battery mid-Instagram scroll. Also, it’s super cute.

Dreamed up by a Chicago-based entrepreneur named¬†Elizabeth Day Ormesher Salcedo, the Everpurse includes a special-charging pocket that “guides your phone smoothly onto a dock connector at the bottom.” According to the product’s Kickstarter, it can charge your phone from 0 to 100 percent approximately twice a day. It’s currently only available for the iPhone 4, 4s and 5, though an Android version is said to be on the way.

In order to charge the actual purse, you just lay it down on a power mat-type device every night. Easy as pie (mmm, pie).

“We set out to build something so powerful and easy to use, it would make charging your phone an afterthought,” reads the Kickstarter. “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.”

The project is almost halfway to its $100,000 goal with 30 days still to go. Let’s just hope the team can actually deliver on the product, considering how much trouble hardware Kickstarters seem to be having these days.
