Q Ultra Smart Wallets Are Innovative and Affordable

You may have noticed that wallets have been dieting in recent times. Some are barely more than oversized paper clips, while others are packed with technology. The thing that links both camps is over-pricing. However much you like sleek curves and lighter pockets, not everyone is willing to part with $100 for a tiny card carrier. This is where Q Ultra Smart Wallets are different. They offer slimline elegance and RFID protection for just $19, and you can add Bluetooth tracking for $15 more.

– Slim synthetic leather design offers security and style

– RFID-blocking technology prevents contactless crime and data theft

– Optional CHIPOLO Bluetooth tag lets you track down wallet via your smartphone

Affordable Smart Wallets

For more than sixty years, guys (and girls) have suffered from wallet-induced pain. You won’t find this condition in a medical dictionary, but the symptoms are very real. Sitting on your bulging back pocket causes your spine to go out of alignment. Losing your wallet causes a completely different kind of pain.

You can clear up these problems instantly with the Q smart wallets. Designed for a world of contactless cards, they offer slimline security in a beautiful package. You can store cards and cash in them, and you can even use Bluetooth to relocate your missing money.

Made from durable micro fiber synthetic leather, the Q-wallets are just 0.15 inches thick and 3.7 inches long. For comparison, the iPhone 7 is nearly twice as bulky.

Despite their streamlined form, these wallets hold several cards and any spare bills. The folding design offers good security for ID cards. On the outside, the quick access pocket holds the two cards you use most regularly. There are five colors to choose from: black, blue, Brown, gray and red.

Security Features

Contactless cards are really convenient at the payment terminal, but they have weaknesses. With the right equipment, anyone can hijack the payment system by simply walking past you in the street. Criminals steal thousands of dollars this way every year from contactless cards.

The Q-BLOQ wallet protects you from this scam with RFID-blocking technology. Hidden inside the wallet, special material stops the radio signals used by these cards. As a result, your money is completely safe.

To prevent other forms of theft, you can upgrade to the Q-TRAQ wallet. It offers the same features, but with Bluetooth tracking instead of RFID protection. The CHIPOLO tag slots neatly into the specially designed inside pocket. This allows you to track your wallet at close range via the companion app.

The app even lets you see the last known location of your wallet. If you are still struggling to find it, you can trigger the integrated 100-decibel alarm. Meanwhile, the tag has a battery life of one whole year. Even the most forgetful person would struggle to lose this accessory.

“Q-BLOQ: Each card is protected by two layers of RFID-blocking material. This keeps your identity and data safe.”

“Q-TRAQ: The CHIPOLO Clip Tracker in your Q-TRAQ wallet connects to the CHIPOLO app on your smartphone – so if you ever misplace your wallet, you can trigger an audio tone.” — Q on Kickstarter
