    If you peruse Amazon long enough you will find thousands of inexpensive high quality battery banks. These are great for juicing up your phone or tablet on the go. The only problem is they can be bulky, and even more troubling is that you have one more thing to carry around. NOMAD has just released what has to be the most convenient battery pack ever.

    They have built a 2400 mah battery back into a Leather wallet. You have probably seen the card sized battery packs that fit in your wallet, but most of those only hold about 1200mah of juice. Having 2400mah of battery power with you at all times means you can give most phones a near full charge. The fact that battery pack is built into your wallet means you won't have to lug around one extra thing.

    The Nomad battery wallet is available for pre-order for $79.99. The real down side here is that they are launching with an iPhone compatible version only. It has a built in lightning cable. Hopefully we will get a USB type-c or micro usb version of the wallet soon. Until then there are those thousands of other portable battery options on Amazon!

    "Well Officer, this is embarrassing. I seem to have left my wallet at home charging."

    Can't imagine sitting on this thing, thought the concept is nice. I'm not a fan of a front pocket wallet. I switched to an ultra slim one a few years ago & haven't looked back since.

    I'm a minimalist. I have a nice leather wallet but haven't actually carried it in my pocket in years. Don't like sitting on wallets, let alone having them in my front pocket. It's so much easier to simply carry my ID,cc & cash in my front pocket. I have a couple of money clips, but only use them when I go out.

    I do like the power bank wallet concept though, kinda cool.

    I use a Big Skinny wallet (fantastic wallets BTW) but I carry it in a cargo pocket. I figure if you're a good enough pick pocket to get my wallet out of a velcroed pocket two inches above my knee without my noticing you do it, you've earned my wallet and my disgusted admiration.

    I have this type. (NOT this one, which I think is hideous).
    Never going back to any other kind.

    Kinda looks that way.
    The two I have are just the clip part with no leather back. I would however like a leather one that I can use daily.
    Good stocking stuffer idea for the SO.

    I got this card carrier as part of a subscription box service. Wasn't crazy about the color at first, but the size is great after sitting in bi & tri folds for so long.

    I like the idea of a money clip, but I'm married to carrying it in my back pocket, so I don't wanna sit on metal.

    This one is nice because my bills end up nicely pressed with one fold instead of curling at the ends.
