We've all heard of handbags that charge your cell phone while you're on the go, but most of these innovative fashion items cost a mint. Urban Junket offers a more affordable alternative which is every bit as tech savvy with its new battery powered bags.
Urban Junket keeps costs down by adding a TSA safe rechargeable battery pack rather than the solar panels its competitors employ. The pack automatically senses your need for power, so you needn't spend time fiddling with buttons or switches. It'll last for ten days before you need to recharge it at a standard US electrical outlet or computer with USB ports.
Urban Junket also chooses a vegan material over leather. It's a more sustainable choice than typical synthetics though. The leather like skin is actually crafted from reclaimed plastic bottles.
Urban Junket's created three different battery powered bags: the cross-body Jen, the hobo styles Karen, and the tote-like JB. Each one is available in a range of bright fashion colors. The bags sadly won't power up laptops, but you can use them to charge smart phones, MP3 players, e-readers, and portable gaming or Bluetooth devices.
Urban Junket's battery powered bags start at $198 for the Jen and top $240 for the JB. They're available to pre-order from the Urban Junket website ahead of their release mid-June.
