One of the great annoyances for men is having to stuff their pockets with anything that is needed — it’s not so much “disturbing” the lines of a pair of pants as it is the discomfort of having bulges. This hasn’t gotten any easier now that phones are wedded to daily life — a guy’s front left or right pocket is now permanently occupied by this digital device. So that means even less space for carrying all the other stuff that’s needed around, like keys and whatnot. So where does a phone recharger have to go when there’s no briefcase or satchel or knapsack at hand? Why, in whatever pocket’s left. And what that means is that the charger gets left behind. Wait, no it doesn’t have to be, because Grommet’s Seyvr Power Saver Wallet is in that other pocket.
The Seyvr is an actual wallet made of leather, not some plastic or woven material jobbie . It’s surprisingly slim when you consider what’s working inside of it — there’s a full fledged battery charger integrated into the wallet. You don’t see it, but anyone who’s spread open the three fold will figure out that there’s something in the middle fold (since there’s no slots there). The other two folds provide space for storing 6 credit cards and cash (as in paper money). Fold it back up and you have what appears to be a standard wallet designed to go in a pocket like any of the dozens of others the pocket has seen over time. So that’s the physical end of things, now for the fun part.
With the wallet unfolded, notice the black strip at that center fold. It’s not a strip, as you’ll see upon grabbing hold of it, but a short USB connector. What you do now, after having already charged the “wallet” using its USB input, is to connect the end of this USB cable to an iPhone. Because the other end of this USB cable has a Lightning connector on it (obviously you placed both wallet and phone on a flat surface next to each other so as to do this). The last step is to press the charging button that is to the side of the wallet. This turns the charging battery “on” and starts to deliver juice to the phone. The battery has a rating of 1400 mAH and that translates into a full charge for an iPhone (or multiple charging for a partially “full” phone). When done, the USB cable is disconnected from the phone and placed back into its indentation and the folds are then closed up to enable the wallet to return to a pocket. Endit.
The Seyvr Power Saver Wallet costs $84 which is reasonable not just because you’re getting both a charging battery and a quality wallet, but also because you’re getting a method for having a charger with you when needed, but not bothering you when unneeded. That is more than a convenience, it’s a really good thing.
