Uncompromisingly functional.

Solar Wallet is a modern interpretation of the classic bi-fold wallet, bettering your everyday by providing +10 extra hours of charge when you need it most. And most importantly: without taking up any of your personal space.

Maintaining the traditional beauty of an Italian wallet, it's hand-crafted with no details left behind. Trust us to make the last wallet you'll ever dream of.

In the 21st century we all have more than one device needing charge...
 

As phones remove the headphone jack, we rely on wireless headphones for music. Not only does bluetooth discharge your phone faster, but now we have another battery to worry about.

We've all been there - going to the gym and realizing your headphones are out of battery isn't the happiest moment of your life.
    

 

 

 

Our focus has been creating a beautiful, timeless design while also working with the world's best engineers to perfect a piece the majority of the world carries daily.
  

The most frequently carried daily devices are your phone and wallet. Your phone has consistently evolved over the past years. Why hasn't your wallet?

We use the finest quality hand-dressed Nappa leather - it’s so soft, you’ll wish you had it as a pillow to sleep at night.

Your passport contains the most sensitive information about you.
Your passport contains the most sensitive information about you.

Theft occurs daily and no longer has to be solely physical. With RFID skimmers, thieves can collect your information simply by walking next to you.

Protect yourself from contactless data and identity theft with our beautiful RFID protected passport holder hand-crafted by skilled artisans.
    

 

 

Intelligent Charge - we've incorporated advanced circuitry in the main internal board of the battery, allowing you to charge both your phone and wallet at the same time.

Solar Wallet automatically prioritizes charging your phone via pass-through charge and intelligently detects when it's full in order to transfer charge to your wallet.

 

Android to Apple - have an Apple device and wish you could use your friend's Android charger? With pass-through charge you can use a Micro-USB cable (included) to charge your wallet, and plug your Apple device using the integrated Lightning cable in the Solar Wallet.

Risks and challenges

We've spent the past two years perfecting the hardware and design of Solar Wallet. With multiple manufacturers locked in and numerous rounds of prototyping, we've finalized our pre-production phase and are ready to start production.

Scale manufacturing does have challenges associated with it. Negating production delays is a top priority for us. Our team has worked with countless manufacturers before and have visited them on-site, performed individual QC checks and are fully prepared to ensure that we get Solar Wallet shipped out by December 2017.

With your help, we'll get off the ground running after the Kickstarter campaign and begin our production run to get Solar Wallet to you as soon as humanly possible. Thank you!
