Portable phone chargers are life savers when you're out for the day without ready access to an outlet. There's nothing worse than watching your phone die when you're trying to link up with friends, or throwing your phone in Airplane Mode for a few hours while you miss out on crucial Instagram updates.
The only problem with chargers is they're so ugly. You don't wants to carry an otherwise useless plastic rectangle in your purse, especially if you're going out at night and are only carrying a tiny crossbody bag. So, why hasn't anyone invented a phone charger that's actually cute, compact and portable?
Enter Pearl, a portable charger that doubles as a compact mirror. It holds enough power to recharge your phone twice and connects to other devices with a USB cord. You can either plug it into your monitor or laptop to juice up or connect it to your iPad or iPhone outlet with an Apple wall charger. And, the double-sided mirror keeps you from using your front-facing camera when you need to apply some makeup - because honestly, that's never very flattering anyway.
This invention is so smart, right? The compact-meets-charger was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, so seems like a bunch of other people thought so, too.
In gold, silver and lipstick red, the Pearls are super sleek and super subtle. We're convinced that this is just the beginning of cool tech + design when it comes to functional items like phone chargers.
