In this video I review the Secrid slim wallet with RFID card protection The wallet I’m going to show you is manufactured in the Netherlands /Holland, it’s neatly packaged, but they’ve not wasted any money here The external part is corrected grain leather This one is described as vintage brown. It has an abraded surface and wax finish that gives a stonewashed look This natural material can be marked and scratched over time which will give it more character and no two wallets will look the same You can choose around 20 different colours and leather types for your Secrid Slim wallet Personally I’d like them to offer a non animal product alternative as well It’s not intended to be the cheapest wallet, instead It’s a desirable item made with a lot of care Next we’ll look at the core part -the aluminium Card protector holds four to six cards for embossed cards or six flat cards in this center part It protects them from bending or damage and more importantly protects your RFID cards (that’s your contactless payment cards) from being scanned by somebody trying to steal your cards data Almost missed this bit. Due to its popularity there are counterfeit products, a genuine one comes with its own unique Serial code for online registration after which you immediately receive your certificate of authenticity The outer case allows for storage of additional cards, business cards, receipts, or whatever you can fit Remember that bank cards are better in the aluminium RFID card protector, which acts as your mini firewall The manufacturers say that you can store another six cards in this external part, but they can be a tight fit You have a dedicated cash slot, which works really well and allows for any size notes not just the slimmer type that you might have in the US for example Well, that makes it really practical and allows you to carry all that you would normally keep in a much larger regular wallet All very impressive And I’ve not shown you the best feature. So at the bottom of the aluminium RFID card protector You have a lever which you push And your cards are ejected in a fan like fashion allowing for any of them to be selected immediately. This unique feature together with the security, practicality and storage, really does make your old traditional wallet obsolete This will be much faster and practical to use when you’re paying for things in a store and If you’re easily entertained like I am pushing the card lever never gets old. The manufacturers say that the mechanism can be operated 250,000 times without any problem, which is all the more reason to make sure you get a genuine product The eject mechanism offers another layer of security, in that you don’t have to take the card completely out of the wallet to make a contactless payment when you operate the mechanism.
The part exposed card has sufficient radio signal to cover short distances to pay for your goods But the signal strength will be outside of the reach of digital pickpockets Next I want you to find out whether you can put less than four cards into the center card protector and for them to be held securely. It turns out that you can. I tried this with just one card And it doesn’t fall out. In fact the mechanism still works to eject it also.
It weighs. Just 72 grams.
It’s 68 mms by 16mm by 102mm In a traditional wallet each of your cards are separated by material inbetween them which creates added bulk. In this clever design multiple cards go into the center part eliminating excess material. This means that you can carry all of the stuff that you already did in a much smaller wallet For similar products to this one please check out my channel for some other reviews. Thanks for watching .
