What do you want from a wallet?
Not much. Keep your cards in one place. Bonus if it looks good.
But what if this good-looking, card-keeping, wallet could also charge your phone — with the sun, no less. And all this without bulk.
Now that’s a wallet worth having.
It’s billed as the “1st smart wallet with solar + USB charge & tracking.” Let’s break that down.
Basically it means you’ll (a) always be able to charge your phone and (b) never lose your wallet — thus eliminating two notable hassles of 21st-century living.
The wallet’s internal battery is chargeable either by USB or by the sun. That battery? It’ll supply 10-plus hours of phone-battery life — definitely enough to get you home in a pinch, whether by car-share (we’re not saying their name) or Google Maps.
For the security-minded, both the slim wallet and a passport holder offer RFID protection — keeping your stuff safe from skimmers.
None of this would matter if the wallet was built like a brick — but it’s slim-slim, and made of soft nappa leather.
Next thing you know, your wallet will be making your dinner.
Till then, this will do fine.
