We Partnered With Your Favorite Phone Accessory To Give Back To The Community

When it comes to the world of phone accessories, Popsockets is one of the only companies making a product that is both affordable and a complete game-changer. I know I’m not the only one who would always have a completely shattered phone if it wasn’t for my trusty PopGrip stuck to the back. The good people at PopSockets have saved me from many costly trips to the Apple store, and now they’re giving back to the community, too.

With their new Poptivism program, PopSockets is partnering with us to bring you some betchy AF limited-edition designs, and every purchase helps a good cause. Through this program, we are proud to support the Lower East Side Girls Club. The LESGC is an amazing organization that works to break the cycle of poverty by training the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial, and environmental leaders. Girls Club members overcome adversity, perceive opportunity, develop self-confidence, make ethical decisions and healthy life choices, thrive academically, embrace leadership, and have the ability to enter college or the workforce as fully prepared and connected adults. Basically, the LESGC is an amazing cause, and 50% of each limited-edition Betches grip purchase goes directly to support their work.

Supporting the Lower East Side Girls Club is a total no-brainer, and so are the four special PopGrip designs that we came up with just for you. You can get matching ones with your entire friend group, or buy one of each and assign them based on individual personalities. They’re the perfect accessory to help you get a grip andgive back, which is what really matters. They’re also only $15 each, so think about whether you’d rather have one overpriced cocktail, or buy something cool that will last a long time, and that also helps kids. Yeah, I thought so.

The Best Portable Phone Chargers So You Can Stop Bothering The Bartender

Much like blacking out at the pregame, having a dead phone is one of the fastest, most effective ways to ruin a night out. Between taking pictures of yourself, sending screenshots to the group chat and trying to figure out where TF your Uber driver is, you’re (literally) not getting anywhere with a dead phone. And for those of you who think you don’t need a phone to have fun, stop lying and acting like you’re not scrolling through Seamless on your way home from the bar trying to find a place that will deliver General Tso’s Chicken at 3am.

For most betches, solving the dying phone epidemic is much more complicated than simply bringing a phone charger with you. Sometimes, you can’t fit it into your clutch. Maybe you can’t find it because your roommate thinks you two have joint custody over it. Perhaps you can’t trust anyone at the pregame not to unplug your phone and charge theirs instead. (Literally get away from me with your “Well I’m only on 18% and you’re on 38%” argument. IT’S MY PHONE CHARGER.) Most likely, you just don’t want to be that betch who pulls her long-ass phone charger out of her bag and is searching for an outlet in a stranger’s apartment or worse, harassing the bartender to charge it behind the bar. It’s just not a good look. Here are a few genius products you can buy to charge your phone on the go/find an excuse to buy more shit.

1. Sonix Bisous Pick Me Up Charger

This portable charger is way easier to fit into a small wallet or clutch than a clunky Apple charging cube. Plus, it comes in a ton of actually cool prints, so you don’t have to deal with the typical “are you sure that’s not mine?” roommate scuffle. It gives your phone 16 hours of additional battery life, which is pretty great considering you’ll probably pass out well before that.

2. Everpurse X Kate Spade New York Zana

This leather Kate Spade crossbody has a built-in charger so you can be a shady betch and charge your phone in your bag without anyone else seeing.

3. Mophie Juice Pack Air

Phone case selection is a sacred process to any betch because the way you dress your iPhone says a lot about you. For example, strapping a battery pack to your phone says “I am so busy and popular that my phone is literally always dying, you should feel honored that I’m even paying you any attention at all.”

4. Rebecca Minkoff M.A.B. Charging Wristlet

With a little charging port, this wristlet provides another way to charge your phone without having to stand next to a wall like an idiot. On the downside, you do have to hold the flaps of the wristlet open if you want to use your phone while it’s charging, which is kind of a bad look, but it’s Rebecca Minkoff so it’s okay this one time.

5. HButler Mighty Purse Fringe Phone Charging Crossbody Bag

HButler is a company that basically makes stuff for betches who can’t keep their shit together, which is the nicest thing anyone’s done for us since the invention of dry shampoo. In addition to vegan (aka fake) leather bags with chargers in them, HButler makes a tiny Bluetooth device that lets you track your keys or phone. It also works as a camera remote so you can take selfies. Hashtag blessed.

6. Ban.Do Mobile Charger

This tiny iPhone charger eliminates the whole “lightning cable” mess. Although loving things just because they’re tiny and pink is pathetic, I’ll admit that this charger is weirdly adorable.

7. Tory Tote Charger Key Fob

Since you’re probably already hoarding like, five different key cards for gyms you no longer attend on your keychain, you might as well add this Tory Burch key fob that also charges your phone.

8. HYPER Pearl Compact Mirror Battery Pack

Built perfectly for a narcissistic betch who appreciates a decent mirror with LED lighting that can double as a selfie enhancer, the HYPER Pearl compact mirror is also a portable charger so you never have to worry about having to interact with anyone after your phone dies. It comes in several chic colors so like, get more than one and you can choose which one to use based on the color of the purse you’re wearing that day.
