Ladies, take advantage of the fact that purses are an essential part of every outfit. That means that unlike the men, you don’t have to stuff your pockets with your daily essentials. But that doesn’t justify piling on the gadgets in addition to the other must-haves in your bags either.
Chances are you already have a smartphone, so we’re keeping that off this particular list. Instead, I’ll be featuring some of the best tech options that deserve some real estate in your purse.
1. Portable Charger
Just face it: there is no way your phone — whether Android or iOS — will survive the day with data services switched on. Batteries have yet to keep up with the massive functionality that today’s smartphones offer. So until it does, you will need to keep a portable battery charger handy.
Personally, I don’t really mind lugging a 10,000 mAh brick (the MiLi Power Star III is my favorite) for peace of mind, but understandably, not all girls agree. You can try the Jackery Mini portable charger as an option — it’s about the size of a lipstick, but packs enough power to charge your smartphone for up to 50 hours.
2. Earbud Case
Earphones out of the box are great, but in the black hole that is a purse, it will emerge as a tangled mess. To solve this problem is Digital Innovations’ The Nest Earbud Case. It stores your earphones neatly and lets you access it with a single, tangle-free pull, protects the earpieces and mic, and is pocket and purse friendly.
3. The Tile
As useful (and fashionable) as purses are, they have a tendency to swallow your most important essentials when you’re in a hurry to find them — particularly your keys and your wallet.
An easy solution comes in the form of The Tile. Simply slip these tiles onto a key ring or into your wallet, and sync them to your phone with an app. And when you can’t find them, all you have to do is activate the app, and music will play to help you locate your items.
4. Gadget Organiser
By far the best way to keep all your essentials in order is by making sure you have the tools to keep everything neat and organised. BUBM’s gadget organiser slips neatly into most medium sized purses, with individual, dedicated compartments for your phone, tablet, cables and IDs.
5. Charger connectors
It’s great if you remember to bring your cords for charging, data transfer or whatever else you may need them for. But chances are — especially if you’re using the same cord at home — you’ve left it plugged by your nightstand.
But inCharge offers an easy, no-fuss way to keep a cord or connector handy. Slip it onto a key ring in your purse, or with your car or house keys, and you’ll always remember to take them when you leave your house or office.
Keep these in mind and you’re all set to go.
