1st & ONLY designer leather RFID wallet with built-in battery and cable to charge BOTH Apple + Android phones and tablets.

Best Wallet Guide Top 5 Wallets For August 2015
Best Wallet Guide Top 5 Wallets For August 2015

Wallgers are high quality handcrafted leather wallets that combine fashion and function, starting with the quick swipe credit card slot. (Handmade prototype below)

4 vertical card / ID slots with an inside cash compartment..

All credit cards and most ID cards will have embedded RFID chips which store your personal information. Unfortunately they are easy to steal by thieves walking around with scanners. Wallgers have lightweight German designed RFID firewalls to keep your information shielded and protected.  

Wallgers are the 1st and ONLY to have thin lithium ion battery packs with a built-in charging cable for both Android and Apple phones and tablets. They can easily add hours of use, and be recharged without opening up the Wallger.   

One built-in cable pulls out to charge both micro USB and Lightning port devices.  The Lightning adapter for iPhone iPad stores inside an onboard compartment.

Wallgers low profile and small footprint fits in any pocket.

We could have used a much less powerful 1,000 mAh unit, but it would make very little difference in the thickness. The battery pack is the largest capacity (2,200 mAh) that we could fit inside the Wallger AND have a built-in charging cable for convenience. It has been tested to recharge smartphones 50 to 80% - adding hours of use.

Wallgers is our new line of fashionable and functional wallets and will have the same detail and focus on craftsmanship, design, and quality materials. Each will be handcrafted for us by small shops so we can keep tight quality control.

That’s what makes Wallgers look and perform better than other “RFID wallets with phone chargers”. We designed the wallet and battery pack at the same time so they fit without looking like they were thrown together by a charger manufacturer.

We are not in the business of making cheaper products with lower quality materials just for the sake of volume sales.  Our philosophy is to use the best materials and hire the best shops to produce (not manufacture) accessories that look good, perform better, and last longer. 

For quality assurance, all Wallgers will be inspected, tested, and hand assembled in the USA.  

Should your Wallger need repair or replacement within the first year, it will be taken care of at no charge.

Lifetime Free Battery Replacement Labor

If the lithium ion batteries ever need replacement, we will replace it without any labor charge.

What we will use the funds for 

The leather wallets will be handcrafted for us by a small shop in Asia. The battery packs will be sourced from a trusted factory and hand fitted with RFID and heat shields in the USA.  We have already completed the design and testing process so the funds raised here will go straight into materials and production costs, along with the shipping to backers.

Please spread the word about Wallgers to your friends and family.

Risks and challenges

As it is USA is focused on handcrafted fashion accessories with the best materials and craftsmanship. Our lines of designer fashion bags can be found in premier boutiques in Asia, Europe, USA; even the Hong Kong Airport! They are also online at opensky.com and our own website.

Wallgers is our new line of fashionable and functional wallets and will have the same detail and focus on craftsmanship, design, and quality materials.

Having worked with artisans in Asia to make the eco-friendly bags, we have no problems sourcing and delivering the Wallgers. The goal is $3,000 because we believe in quality over quantity. Of course, should you Kickstarter members want more, we are capable of making as many is needed without sacrificing quality control.
