This post is part of the series, SmallBusiness.com Guide to Business Gadgets: The newly invented or conceptual devices that are called everything from gadget to gizmo to "what were they thinking?" You can browse other posts in the series below.
Until the day comes when batteries for mobile devices last as long as we need them to (we’d love a few weeks, but will be glad when they last past dinner), we must depend on the creativity of those who come up with an endless array of ways to hide a battery that can be used as a backup charger when your iPhone peters out.
When it comes to clever backup battery bling, we agree with our friend, Khoi Vinh (Subtraction.com): Nomad keeps us charged with a steady stream of clever products. They’ve found ways to hide backup batteries or USB charging wires in a wide array of pocket-sized items like key fobs and carabiners.
Their latest is a battery hidden in the spine of a leather wallet. Nomad, a company known for it minimalist design, gave its new product a minimalist name: Wallet.
The battery holds enough electricity for a single charge for an iPhone 6 or 6s. Sure, you can find backup batteries with more capacity, but not with the same patina.
