Small but mighty: the powered-up purse

Yawn yawn, why might we need a new bag, however cute and dinky? Because this one comes with a built-in power-supply, so that when your iPhone (or BlackBerry, or Samsung Galaxy or pocket-MP3 for that matter) runs out of juice, you can just plug it in and carry on. A no-brainer, if you ask me. I haven’t seen this for real or tried it out, so can’t vouch for the fact that its battery will charge a smartphone twice (and of course you then need to remember to keep the bag charged, but plugging it into a USB port…), but I think we’re all going to find we need one of these in our lives, even at £80. There might just be room in there for a lipgloss, too.
