How many times has your cell phone run out of battery while you were outside? Or even worse... how many times has it happened in the middle of an important conversation?

Well, now, that is no longer an issue. Here is the solution: the SUNO WALLET.

SUNO means SUN in Esperanto, the international language. 

SUNO WALLET was born for making your life easy when you are outside. When we're leaving home we used to take our keys (easier to come back home), our wallet (to survive outside) and our smartphone (to keep connected).

Until this moment, you just were carrying a wallet.

Now, with SUNO WALLET (International Patent Pending) you will also carry the following solutions:

  • USB SOLAR CHARGER
  • RFID BLOCKER
  • USB BATTERY PACK*
  • USB LED LIGHT*
  • MULTI-TOOL CARD
  • BLUETOOTH 4.0 TRACKER**

*SUNO wallet day & night version

** "Pimp My SUNO wallet" option

SUNO WALLET provides you with the freedom to use an Earth-friendly method to power your USB devices.

SUNO Wallet is perfect for charging devices with low-power needs such as cell phones, tablets, mp3 players, e-watches, headlamps, and more

HOW DOES IT WORK?

SUNO WALLET DAY :

  • The high efficiency flexible thin-film solar panel turns sunlight into direct current electricity (DC). Then the step-down module turns it to 5Vdc stabilized current.  
  • The SUNO WALLET connected to a regular USB device injects the produced electricity into it: You're charging your device!
  • Because the electricity always takes the shortest route, you’re instantly consuming the green energy.

As long your SUNO WALLET DAY is in the sun light your USB devices can be charged.

SUNO WALLET DAY & NIGHT :

  • The high efficiency flexible thin-film solar panel turns sunlight into direct current electricity. Then the step-down module turns it to 5Vdc stabilized courant to charge the lithium battery and your connected USB device.
  • The SUNO WALLET connected to a regular USB device injects the produced electricity into it: You're charging your device!
  • Because the Electricity takes always the shortest way, you’re instantly consuming the green energy from the thin-film solar panel and from the lithium battery. The lithium battery can be charged with a regular micro-usb cable (5Vdc - 1A max.) and still with the sun light.

The built-in lithium-polymer battery allows you to power your USB devices for up to 2 hours.

WHY THIN-FILM SOLAR CELL (TFSC) TECHNOLOGY?

There are 4 main solar panel technologies on the market: monocrystalline cells, polycristalline cells, amorphous cells and thin-film solar cells.

The monocrystalline, polycristalline and amorphous cells are very fragile and breakable. These cells are not flexible and not thin at all because they have to be protected by a tempered glass.

The monocrystalline and polycristalline cells hate been covered with shade or dirt, the entire circuit can break down. The output power dropped by 90%.

The thin-film solar panel is flexible (roll-able) and can also be folded (so that your cards are able to fit into the SUNO WALLET). You can sit on it, walk on it, jump on it, drop it from an airplane and it will still do its job (but your money and cards inside the wallet might be destroyed or lost).

High temperatures and shade have few impact on thin-film solar panel performance (5% loss max). That's why the thin-film solar panel can generates electricity through a window: at home, at the office, in your car, in your RV, practically everywhere.

Our thin-film solar panel is totally cadmium telluride (CdTe) free!

The high-efficiency thin-film solar panel allows you to generate electricity with regular incandescent lighting:

RFID BLOCKER WALLET

Prevent anyone reading your RFID-enabled cards to steal your cash or identity. SUNO WALLET offers RFID-skimming protection by blocking out the signals. The thin-film solar panel creates a Faraday cage and allows you to get around without worrying about someone casually reading your card while walking by.

MULTI-TOOL CARD

It's a practical life-saving card. It's smaller than a credit card. It's powerful: it will help you with several functions. You'll carry a simple kit in your SUNO WALLET.

USE OF FUNDS

Funds raised through Kickstarter will help us bring SUNO WALLET to life. We will need to cover upfront costs and minimum order quantity thresholds of suppliers. SUNO WALLET's bill of materials will need to be tweaked for manufacturing and production engineers will need to be brought on to review the product. 

Once built, each unit will need to be tested and certified to assure that what we have built is safe and reliable. At the end of it all, we will be able to deliver a great product that you helped build.

THANK YOU

Thank you for helping us bring SUNO WALLET to the world. We wouldn’t be able to do this without your support. THANK YOU!

Risks and challenges

CHALLENGE:
The challenges of the SUNO WALLET Kickstarter will be getting the word out, and convincing backers to participate. There are so many amazing projects out there, it is going to be hard to get the attention we need to make this wallet successful. To reach as many people as possible, we are asking friends, families, and various blogs to help us spread the word.

Once the funding is in place, our challenge will be producing a very large quantity of wallets, and making sure all the partners I'm working with maintain our quality standards. Depending on outside help is difficult, but we have been dealing with the companies we are working with for years and establishing a solid communication base that has given us a lot of confidence in them.

SHIPPING:
We tend to prioritize sending the areas requiring a longer delivery time, so that all the backers can get them at a similar time.
