Carrying a wallet is something almost everyone does, and it’s something most people don’t give much thought to. Despite being an essential element of daily routines, 30 million wallets are lost annually in the world? It might seem trivial, but technology is finally advancing to make wallets more advanced with a smart wallet.
Volterman is the world’s most powerful smart wallet with a few smart functions. The first feature of note is the built-in power bank which fully charges users’ smartphones on the go, both wirelessly and with a cable. It comes in multiple capacities ranging from 2,000 to 5,000 mAh.
To help prevent users from losing their phone or their wallet, there’s a built-in Bluetooth alarm system which sends alerts if the phone or wallet leave a specific range.
The built-in Wi-Fi hotspot helps to ensure users have internet access wherever they travel. On average the internet cost of the Volterman is three times cheaper than regular roaming charges.
Should Volterman get stolen, the built-in global GPS system enables users to track their wallet wherever it is in real-time. In addition to tracking, Volterman has a “lost mode” which triggers a tiny camera whenever someone opens the wallet. This mode enables users to capture images of the individual(s) who stole their wallet.
In addition to the Volterman wallet, there’s a cardholder which sports a 2,000 mAh power bank, distance alarm system, worldwide GPS tracking, a global Wi-Fi hotspot, and a thief detection camera.
The Volterman Bifold features a 2,600 mAh power bank, distance alarm system, worldwide GPS tracker, global Wi-Fi hotspot, and thief detection camera.
The Volterman Travel is designed with travelers in mind, complete with room for a passport and boarding passes. It features a 5,000 mAh power bank, distance alarm system, worldwide GPS tracker, global Wi-Fi hotspot, and a thief detection camera.
As far as dimensions go, the Cardholder is 3.9” x 2.7”, Bifold is 4.7” x 3.5”, and Travel is 7.4” x 3.5”. The wallets also are fully sealed with epoxide resin sealant which makes it secure and resistant to heavy weights, heating, and water.
Within the wallet is an ARM Cortex A9 Texas Instruments processor, 512MB RAM, and 32GB ROM.
So far the makers of Volterman have raised over $258,000 via crowdfunding which is significantly higher than their original goal of $45,000. Early bird pricing for the wallet starts at $98 which is 45% off the retail price of $178, and the shipping date is December 2017. Each purchase includes a Volterman Cardholder; iPhone, USB M, and USB C cables; and a magnetic wallet charging cable.

I was just on the crowdfunding page and I am impressed that the company was able to raise these kinds of funds. Very nice and for those looking to see how a well-versed campaign works, this is a great template.

Onboard Wi-Fi is pretty awesome of a feature.
Mario Peterson says
The anti-theft camera is nice for sure. There is no doubt you will get your wallet back, it’s the contents that are more important!
Gregory McKinney says
This wallet has Wi-Fi? Just seems weird.
Jesse Hill says
🙂 welcome to 2017 and beyond dude! Wi-Fi is going to be packed into most things that you can buy these days!
Bryan McCann says
I am going to look around YouTube to see if I can find a review of any smart wallet, with theft detection, to see how it actually works and if it was a success in people getting the CONTENTS of their wallet back.`
Jeffery Knouse says
Looks like the wallet is going to ship just in time for Christmas 🙂 That makes it even a more perfect product than it was when I first started reading about it!
Elaine Spells says
I would say at least one time per month, there is a new smart wallet option on the market. Personally, I did not think there was a need for anything like this and then I got one as a gift. I didn’t realize how much I needed a smart wallet in my pocket!
