For those of us who have to carry a wallet in our pockets, they seem to be bothersome because most are made of leather and become rather thick after you add a few credit cards. Trying to find a material which is thin and yet flexible is always a challenge. So many of the ones that are available which are thin are heavy because of the metal that is used with them. And they are not flexible at all.
Enter the Tronic wallet which is both thin and flexible. Using carbon fibre, they have been able to reduce the thickness and the weight which many people do not like. Thin wallets today are made of aluminum which is not flexible at all. They also block RFID chips from being used requiring you to remove it from the wallet in order to use it.
With the Tronic wallet, you can leave you credit card on the inside and tap the Point of Sale device. That is a great feature. The only problem with the Tronic and any of these thin wallets is the capacity to hold things is limited. They say that it will hold 6 cards or 3 cards and some cash. The cards here are assumed to be credit cards/debit cards. For keeping things slim, this looks like it is going to be a great product.
This original KickStarter Project for the Tronic wallet was cancelled as it looked like they were not going to meet the goal. After negotiating with suppliers, they now believe they can produce a much cheaper product. The previous goal was 50,000 British pounds (approx. 79,115.00 USD) and the new goal is 5,000 (approx. 7,915.00 USD). The pledges were canceled and they are asking those who already pledged to do so on the new project. They are well on their way of meeting the current goals and we expect to see this as a great product some time in April or May. And the price here in the US can be expected to be in the $19 – $20 range, plus shipping from the UK.
