Nomad's 'Wallet for iPhone' Provides iPhone 6s With Full Charge on the Go

by

Nomad today announced a new product, the "Wallet for iPhone," which hides a small rechargeable battery cell within a traditional billfold wallet. The 2,400 mAh lithium-ion battery is housed in the hinge of the Wallet and promises to provide a full charge to an iPhone 6s. Owners of an iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6s Plus will probably only see half the charge of their phone restored due to the smaller battery size of the wallet.

We went to the absolute extreme of lithium-ion battery tech and ultra compact circuit boards to make this an ultra high density battery system. We used an advanced SoC (system on chip) microprocessor and 01005 grade components which allow us to pack a huge 2400mAh battery providing a full charge for your iPhone 6s.

The company claims that the Wallet is no thicker than the average billfold wallet, even when counting the increased weight of a wallet full of credit cards and cash. The normal functions of the wallet allow it to hold six business or credit cards total. Specifically, Nomad gives its dimensions as 25 mm max thickness, 85 mm wide, 125 mm long, which it calls "thinner than most men's billfolds."

When users want to charge their iPhone, an integrated 3.5 inch Lightning cable is simply removed and plugged into the device to begin refilling its charge. The Wallet will function with any iPhone supporting a Lightning port, and promises one 100% charge to each device on a full battery. The Wallet itself is recharged via micro USB cable -- taking up to two full hours from an empty battery -- and four LED lights on its underside show a visual representation of its charge level.

Tethering my iPhone to my wallet. That will make it so much easier for criminals who have trouble choosing between stealing my iPhone, credit cards or cash! Take all three with one swipe! And get a charging unit as a free bonus.

No third party has been able to license the lightning connector (rather, the female lightning socket) for their own products thus far.

Actually, this one has.
