How it works | Everpurse

| No Comments

Everpurse has a special charging pocket into which you place your smartphone. Our patent-pending docking system guides your phone smoothly onto a dock connector at the bottom--so you don't have to fish for a cord!

To charge Everpurse itself, you can simply place Everpurse on its charging mat. It uses inductive charging to send energy wirelessly from the mat to the purse, so you never have to plug the purse in! You can leave a charging mat plugged in wherever it's convenient for you--at work, at home, wherever--and drop Everpurse onto it when it needs charging. We suggest leaving Everpurse on its charging mat overnight, and it will have a full charge the next morning.

$189.00--$329.00, depending upon how well-developed your fashion sense is.

The sense of urgency from the bench was shown recently when the First Circuit Court of Appeals declined to rehear a key privacy case and Chief Judge Sandra Lynch took the unusual step of issuing a statement calling on the Supreme Court to get involved: "Only the Supreme Court can finally resolve these issues, and I hope it will."

Starting next week, the nation's top court is set to consider whether to take up three key related cases, including the one Lynch encouraged them to take. Here are the big tech issues that could finally get decided:
