The concept behind The Power Purse is simple. Instead of lugging around a power backpack or working with a pouch and a separate mobile charger, The Power Purse is 2-in-1. This device is not restrictive to one kind of device - just so long as it’s small enough to fit in the pouch, you can carry and charge it.
Reports of the next-generation iPhone 6 have begin to trickle, bringing on word that the device may very well be thinner than its predecessor.

Finally - and perhaps most importantly - the HTC One M8 works with "Extreme Power Saving Mode."
Gbatteries openly state that they haven’t invented a new battery, what they have done to its new BatteryBox instead is tweaking the technology to control the energy flow within an existing lithium-ion battery. What this means that the battery will now hold more power within it and not degrade over time - even after 3,000 full charge and discharge cycles.
If you have ever seen the movie Transformers, you are familiar with the notion of something innocuous changing into something else. In the movies, most of the transforming is of robots into cars.
