Zallex2.0 new features
- Improved quality: According to our backers, the buttons of Zallex1.0 might gradually marking through the surface after use. We've inserted addtional layer above the button to fix this problem.
- Longer pull-tab: The original pull-tab for Zallex1.0 was a little too short.
- RFID protection: We use a layer of metallic faberic as signal blocker to make our Zallex2.0 RFID protected.
RFID protection feature
RFID (Radio frequency Identification) technology is widely used in many credit cards, membership cards, etc.
Basically, a RFID card shall yield its information to radio signal emited by a scanner. This is very convenient when we try to pay our bill, open a door, show our membership etc. But our card info can be leaked to dangerous people in the same way. Therefore, RFID protection is to shield cards from all radio signals by placing metal materials as cover, blocking the radio frequency out.
Zallex uses metallic faberic as RFID protection cover. We can't guarrentee 100% safety, but the it will provide protection to some degree.
Zallex International Cash test
The currency we used in the video are printed and cutted from common A4 papers, the thickness and rigidness is quite similar to the actual bills. And we found all the size info from Wiki and other public internet resources. Correct us if we've made any mistakes.
For more details, please see update #4

- Thickness: Zallex is about 10 mm thick. However there could be variations since the each piece of PU leather is different.
- The Zip pocket: About 5 cm deep, and 7.5 cm wide, that's more than enough if you ask me. :)

For details see update#3:
- Gathering order info: For two weeks, we shall wait for backers to answer their survey. Please note that backers are always change their address for our survey, however do shoot us an message when you about to do so. And do let us know ahead of time if you are moving. Kickstarter can be a long march :(
- Confirm order and buy materials: For this step we shall start calculating the material we need and start ordering them.
- Manufaturing: We shall work with our contractors and start making Zallex. Tell from experience that timing could be on and off for this stage, you never know. But even if you are off the schedule, please understand that we are only trying to make sure that Zallex is of good quality. Packaging: Packaging can be quite challenging as well, since we have backers from all over the world. Have to be careful. :)
- Shipping: Please note that our estimated delivering date is the shipping date, not arriving date. Shipping time could be quite different depends on the locations of each backer.
Thank you for your support !!
Risks and challenges
1. On timing:
Since the exact number of backers is unknown to us, so the timing may fall out of schedule a little. But we did leave ourselves with extra time already, and we will try to get ahead of time for each step, so don't worry. :)
2. On shipping:
Shipping is another potential problem as well. Should the shipping take way too long than regular time, we will assume the package is lost and resend the reward. Promises promises :)
3. On refund:
We will arrange refund, if it is strongly insisted. There is no point in keeping the money from backers if they don't have our back any more. We will do our best to meet backers' anticipation as we should, and hope the worst won't happen.
4. On capacity:
The average and recommended capacity for Zallex is round 6 cards. 8 cards is the up limit. However, backer might find the wallet to be too tight at first. But don't worry, the leather will loose down in about a week, and provide just enough tension for your cards.
5. On RFID protection
We are using a market proved method for RFID protection. But no one can guarrentee radio signal proof. The metallic faberic only offer RFID protection to some extend. Please note this.
