Carrying a power bank isn’t always convenient, but if you need to be able to replenish your phone on the road, it can prove invaluable. You know what’s convenient? When your power bank happens to be in your billfold just like what they’re doing here with the Nomad Wallet for iPhone.
Measuring 95 x 125 x 25 mm (h x w x d), it looks just like any regular wallet. It functions like them, too, with a space for your bills and lots of pouches for any cards you need to bring along. Unlike regular wallets, it has an integrated battery, allowing you to hook up your iPhone to replenish it once you find the battery dwindling down to the last remaining morsels of juice.
The Nomad Wallet is able to integrate a battery by allocating space at the spine, where they managed to fit in a semi-cylindrical enclosure that houses a high-density 2,400 mAh battery, allowing it to pack enough power to juice up an iPhone 6S from zero to full charge. Even the Lightning cable has its own storage section in the wallet, so everything is self-contained, allowing you to keep a power bank on standby without using up any other storage space. Features include flashing indicator lights that inform you how much charge is left on the battery, a two-hour charging time, and a bills compartment that can accommodate even the extra-large €500 bill. Construction is black saffiano leather for the wallet, along with high-strength aluminum and polycarbonate end caps for the battery enclosure.
Slated to ship November 15, the Nomad Wallet for iPhone is now available for preorder, priced at $79.99.
