It’s nearly impossible to lose the ESR HaloLock Geo Wallet Stand. It clings to an iPhone with unusually powerful magnets, and when removed can be located almost anywhere with Apple’s Find My network.

The new ESR wallet offers several advantages over the Apple Leather Wallet with MagSafe.

ESR’s latest iPhone wallet ties int the FindMy network

Misplacing your wallet for a few minutes is irritating, and can make you late to work. Losing your wallet is extremely frustrating. The need to replace everything is very time consuming.

The ESR HaloLock Geo Wallet Stand can connect to your iPhone via Bluetooth and play an alarm to tell you where it is.

If you lose it outside your home, any passing iPhone can automatically alert you as to its location thanks to the convenience of Apple’s FindMy network. That’s the same system used by AirTags.

But don’t be worried the HaloLock Geo Wallet Stand will often go missing because it slipped off the back of the iPhone. It magnetically clings to the handset with 1,500 G of holding force. That’s twice the strength of Apple’s MagSafe wallet.

But wait, there’s more

ESR HaloLock Geo Wallet Stand has a lot of name and functionality
The wallet is also a stand, plus it also includes a finger loop.

Inside the wallet is a slot to securely hold up to three cards. A small cutout at the bottom allows cards to be easily pushed up and out.

As the name indicates, HaloLock Geo Wallet Stand also props up the iPhone. Its maker claims this is stable at any angle between 15° and 170°, portrait or landscape.

There’s even a finger loop on the back to give users a better grip on their handset.

The device is rechargeable, and goes for three months without needing to be juiced up.

Just be aware, all that functionality comes with some bulk. The wallet is a bit under half an inch thick.

Preorder now

ESR’s HaloLock Geo Wallet Stand is available now exclusively on Kickstarter. The Super Early Bird price is $31. The final price will be $39. ESR estimates deliveries will start in May.

The product is made of imitation leather, and comes in either midnight black or caramel brown.

For comparison, the Apple Leather Wallet with MagSafe is $59. It is slimmer but can only tell its user where it was last attached to their phone, not the wallet’s current location. And it can not play a tone to make finding easier.

Alternatively, you can get a wallet with a slot for an AirTag, but it won’t have all the extra features of ESR’s.
