The MightyPurse Trio is a stylish solution to a simple problem.
I’m pretty good about monitoring my phone usage and battery percentage, but every once in a while, I find myself with a dead phone. I do own multiple backup battery packs, which are extremely helpful when I have the foresight to carry one of them around with me, but that’s rather rare unless I’m actually planning something that involves being away from outlets all day. Part of that, I think, is because they tend to be bulky and heavy (my favorite one is bigger than my iPhone 6 Plus in its case and at least twice as thick), and I don’t want to just carry that around all the time just in case I need it.
MightyPurse is a line of handbags that come with slim battery packs built into the design. The Trio has a 4000mAh battery that snaps into place in the central compartment, giving you backup power without any bulk. It comes with a built-in charging cord (microUSB) with Lightning and USB-C adaptors. The battery pack itself is fairly standard: charged via USB, LED indicator lights, 5V max input, and output. It isn’t the fastest charging or best battery pack ever, but the execution is pretty spot-on for this product. The battery is stitched into an unobtrusive black pouch (with a leather trimmed window for the LEDs to shine through). The phone charging cord comes out from the bottom and is just long enough for easy purse charging without having to move too many things around for access. The top of the battery pouch unzips to store its USB charging cable. The fabric and hardware all match the rest of the purse perfectly.
The bag itself is gorgeous. I am so happy that I own one and am going to carry it everywhere for a while. The exterior is this soft, warm gray leather (the product I reviewed is in the Stone color) with gold hardware. It’s small, slim, and simple with just enough interest going on to keep it away from boring.
The Trio gets its name from the fact that the purse is actually three separate bags that can attach and detach from one another. There are snaps on the upper corners of each of the bags where they connect. I was worried at first that the connections wouldn’t be secure enough, but after struggling to detach and reattach the pieces for this review, any worries about how easy it might be for the compartments to fall apart have been eased (there’s an art to it, you just have to figure it out). The battery snaps into the middle of the three, which is also where the strap attaches. The outer two pouches both have card pockets, and one has another zippered interior pocket.
The bags fit together in multiple ways so you can use one, two, or all of them in different configurations to suit your needs. One downside to this is that when detached, the individual pouches have the gold snap hardware clearly visible, which makes them seem like they’re missing something. When altogether (or if you use both outer pouches snapped together), this isn’t a problem, but if you want to use the central pouch on its own as a small cross-body, you’d have the open snaps on either side just hanging out. I kept the Trio in its original configuration during my entire test for this review (and I’ll continue to use it such) because I really don’t like the unfinished look. I wish they’d thought to include some snap covers with the bag. I feel like it would make the whole modular deal come together better and make it seem more intentional.
Overall, the MightyPurse Trio bag is a hit for me, and you all should probably buy one for your wife/mother/sister/significant person who likes purses right now. I love products that are effortless and put the design on the same level of importance as usefulness, and this bag does exactly that.
