Always losing your wallet? Never again, thanks to Zillion's Tile-powered wallet

You’ll never want to lose this wallet, and you never will.

Meet the Zillion Slimline Wallet, a brand new wallet that not only has Tile’s location technology built right into its sleek design, but also doubles as a powerbank capable of charging your smartphone on the go. Think of it as the wallet for the absent-minded, perpetually-on-the-go, 21st-century individual. 

Matt Orlic began conceptualizing the Zillion after growing tired of two common grievances — misplacing his wallet, and having a dead phone. So he decided to address both problems with a single solution, creating an ultra-slim wallet that could not only power his phone, but also incorporate anti-loss technology. He partnered with Tile to bring consumers a product that leaves them perpetually charged — and in charge of their possessions.

So how does it work? If ever you misplace your Zillion, simply ring it from the Tile app and use your echolocation capabilities to find it. If you’re too far away to hear it, you can check the map within the Tile application and find your wallet’s last known location (and the time at which it was located). And if that’s still not good enough, you can, of course, rely upon the Tile network to help find your Zillion, which promises to be “the world’s largest lost and found network.”

Moreover, the Zillion’s powerbank features a 2,500mAh battery and built-in cable, capable of fully charging your smartphone. And despite this broad functionality, the Zillion doesn’t suffer in design. It’s only 6.5 x 9.5 x 12 cm and is made with 100-percent sheep leather. Your super slim wallet can be ordered in either brown or black leather finishes.

Currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter, the early bird price of the Zillion stands at just over $75. So if you’re looking for a Christmas gift for that forgetful someone, this may just be the way to go.
