I love discovering innovative handbags that cater to today’s modern woman. We wear so many hats and need products that speak to the demands of our lifestyle. The 2012 Power Trips Collection does exactly that! It is a new line of beautiful handbags and laptop bags with a built-in power source for recharging phones and devices while on the go. They are stylish, sustainable (made from recycled water bottles) and use a unique patented battery technology. There are three styles of PowerTrips Rechargeable Bags – Karen Powered Handbag, Jen Powered Crossbody and JB Powered Laptop Bag. Each is available in seven colors – black, grass, magenta, indigo, scarlet, violet and sterling.
My favorite is the Karen Powered Handbag. It comes with a battery pack built into the bag, and is spacious enough to hold any tablet or 13 inch laptop in addition to everyday handbag items. There are two connections that only connect one way. The cords are obvious and the Joey Battery Pack auto senses power demand; therefore there is no need for buttons or switches. The built-in battery pack will recharge your devices for up to 10 days or partial charges or 2 full device charges. The Joey can be recharged and simultaneously power any USB-powered device. It can be charged from any standard US electrical outlet or it can pull power from a computer. Price: $224.00. Visit urbanjunket.com to view the entire collection.
