Orange County’s mophie, the brand you know and love for giving your phone — and any other electronic device — a little extra juice when you need it most, has teamed with the house of Valentino and the Cash & Rocket 2014 Tour to produce a limited edition power station. The proceeds collected from the sale of the powerstation will benefit this year’s Cash & Rocket charities: Shine on Sierra Leone, OrphanAid Africa and Sumbandila, which all work to bring aid to the women and children of Africa. “In the mobile world, mophie is known for being style-forward, so having the opportunity to partner with such an established house like Valentino is an landmark event for mophie,” said Shawn Dougherty, COO and Co-Founder of mophie. “But at the end of the day, bringing our communities together to support several amazing causes is what makes this project even more special.”

If you’re unfamiliar with Cash & Rocket, it was started in 2012 by Julie Brangstrup, who worked in finance, nutritional health care and more. Every year, the event brings together seventy women, each hand-picked from the worlds of fashion, film, music, art and business. The women tour across Europe in custom red cars, bringing awareness to that year’s charities. This year’s tour takes the ladies from Venice to Geneva, Paris and then finally London, and at each stop, they’ll all be spreading the word about the three charities before heading to the gala in London.  The Valentino-designed mophie powerstations are part of a larger capsule collections that Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli created, which include shorts, a leather jacket and studded shoes, all done up in Absolute Rouge, the house’s signature shade of red. The powerstation boasts that same red and comes with special packaging. Like all powerstations from mophie, the Valentino model will charge anything that can be hooked up via USB. A select number of Valentino powerstations (only 500 will be produced) will be on auction at the gala on June 8, but if you don’t plan on being in London, the remaining powerstations will be available at Mophie’s website and at select European Valentino locations.
