SOLARJO Power Purse projects eco-friendly fashion statement

Aug '08
The SOLARJO Power Purse projects an eco-friendly image that also provides a charging source for a cell phone or other small electronic device. Thin film flexible solar panels attached to the outside of the bag capture energy from sunlight and store it in a battery located inside the handbag.

Intelligent circuitry provides power management that allows a cell phone or electronic device to charge in the same way it would if plugged into a USB port on a computer. The Power purse is designed to keep up with the charging needs of one portable device.

The SOLARJO Power Purse has dimensions of 12x6x4 inches. These dimensions allow it to be placed in a window sill for charging. A zipper enclosure provides extra security for valuable devices being charged. Nickel plated hardware, iridescent solar panels, and clear acrylic handles give the bag an industrial look.

Reflective red interior provides good visibility inside the handbag for making connections between the handbag and devices held inside. Padding in the walls provides protection for devices inside as well as extra cushion to protect the durable thin film material.

The SOLARJO Power Purse will initially be marketed through www.solarjo.com. Other retail and wholesale are being sought. A product launch is expected to occur in the fall.
