I need to see this purse in real-life form before I can pass judgment, but let me offer up my two cents from what I know so far. News has arrived that by the end of this year, for around $300 to $400, you can purchase a handbag that not only stows your goods but also charges your beloved gadgets.

The Soljaro Power Purse was created by mechanical engineering student Joe Hynek and works by charging up the purse's solar panels whenever you're in the sun. The bag is said to need about two hours of full sunlight to charge a cell phone, while a fully-charged battery can last up to a month. And it was designed in such a way that you can easily sit it in your window at work to charge up!
