One thing about me is that I’ll carry my reusable water bottle around with me everywhere I go. It has become such an essential that I often tend to forget to take other important things out with me, like my house key, or a phone charger. And for those who, like myself, often find themselves with a cell phone that has no more than five percent battery charge, Panera Bread has come up with a solution to keep your phone—and you—charged up.

To celebrate the launch of the new Charged Lemonades—a refreshing summertime sip with plant-based caffeine for a burst of energy—the brand has launched a reusable cup that doubles up as a portable phone charger. Game changing, if you ask me.

The base of the 17oz bottle pops right off and acts as a charging base for your phone to rest on and get some juice, no power outlet needed. It’s the ideal way to make sure both you and your phone are staying hydrated all summer long.

There are only 480 of these genius bottles available, and Panera fans can get their hands on one via the website. To be in with a chance of winning simply fill out the application form by 20 June. The sweepstake is open to all U.S. residents nationwide, but any winners located in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles or St. Louis will receive their prize via courier service on June 21—the longest day of the year, and the official start of summer.

Good luck!
