If you carry a larger purse or briefcase, you know that it can be a challenge to find what you’re looking for among the lipsticks, receipts, chargers and other “essentials” we insist on toting around with us everyday. Inspired by watching women at a folk festival rummage through their purses in the dark due to an unexpected power outage, two technically-trained designers decided to seek out an engineered solution. What transpired was this portable Handbag Illuminator with Charging Power.

This sleek, square-shaped light fits into any purse or tote bag and allows you to see inside the depths of your handbag so you can actually find what you’re looking for without spending hours digging through the its contents.

The motion sensitive light illuminates at the touch or approach of a hand, turning your endless rummaging (and coming up with everything but what you actually need) a thing of the past. The light will automatically switch off after eight seconds to preserve battery giving you just enough time to grab whatever it is you are seeking. Even if your bag is a “black hole,” this awesome gadget will help you find what you need in a timely fashion.

This version of the purse light also functions as a rechargeable power source making it so you can charge your phone at any time through the light’s convenient device charger port.
