Nomad Leather Wallet
Cash in on more battery power
From £91 from Nomad, hellonomad.com features Lightning connector, 2,400mAh battery, Bi-Fold or Slim
The iPhone is a power-hungry thing, and no matter where you are, if you haven’t thought about charging up before you leave, it’s easy to find that you’re low on juice.
There are countless battery packs and battery cases out there for the iPhone, but bulk has always been a problem and you have to remember to take one with you.
As you need to take a wallet with you most of the time anyway, having an integrated battery to top up your iPhone is a great idea. Nomad has managed to make a stylish leather product that does just that, either in its classic Bi-Fold wallet style or the more purse-like Slim design.
Both versions feature the same 2,400mAh battery, which gave us 100% charge in 2.5 hours on an iPhone SE. We had a faulty sample first time around, with the battery unable to discharge, but Nomad sent us a second one that worked just as it was supposed to.
We like the feel of the wallet, but you can’t get away from the extra weight; so unless you’re used to a wallet that’s stuffed to the rafters with notes and coins, you’d want to leave this in a bag or jacket.
Pull out the short Lightning cable, attach, then press the On button.
