forget about minimalist wallets. your power-hungry smartphone needs a backup battery, so why not integrate it into an every day carry like your wallet? that’s exactly what the Smartphone Charging Wallet is about: an otherwise nondescript leather wallet that has a 680 mAh rechargeable built into it. yes. built-in. not some credit card size portable battery that you might forget to bring. this juice pack is stuck to your wallet all the time, so if you remember your wallet, you will always have a backup battery with you, well, that’s provided you keep it topped which you can do so in just 30 minutes with the included micro USB adapter. the battery comes with an integrated charging cable, so you need not to be concerned with bringing additional cable.
it is an idea that is so simple and yet, something we all need. the wallet is crafted from genuine calfskin and has a trifold design with one side being occupied by the battery, while the other two sides provide storage for up to nine cards. naturally, there is a full-length bill compartment and a snap fastener is used to keep things shut. the wallet measures 9 1/4″ long (when open), 3 1/2″ wide and 1/2″ thick (about 23.5 cm x 8.9 cm x 1.3 cm) which is no bigger than a regular wallet, though it does weigh quite a bit at 4 oz. or about 113g, or about the weight of a small smartphone. available for both Android and iOS devices, the Smartphone Charging Wallet can be yours for $79.95. if you find yourself frequently forgetting to bring a backup battery, the Smartphone Charging Wallet might be a good thing to have.
