Ekster has released Ekster 2.0 leather slim wallets, the successor to its original Parliament and Senate wallets. In addition to improved design, the new wallet also features a solar-powered Tile Bluetooth tracker. Like the idea? Let’s keep checking.
The Ekster 2.0 slim wallet series contains two variants including Parliament and Senate. The Parliament is a bi-fold leather wallet that measures 0.59 x 4.1 x 2.7 inches, and the Senate is 0.35 x 4.1 x 2.5 inches. As we can see from her images, both wallets show off a minimal and stylish appearance, but the Parliament features a more classic and fashionable design while the Senate boasts a slimmer form factor.
Meanwhile, the two smart wallets are crafted with premium Dutch/German top-grain leather for a durable construction and luxurious feeling.
The Parliament leather wallet delivers more slots to store at least 10 cards, and its hidden pocket and multi-purpose cash strap keep your folded bills and notes in place.
The Senate is designed to store at least 7 cards and it also comes with a same cash strap for your bills.
Both Ekster 2.0 wallets feature a patented cardholder mechanism that allows to eject your most frequently used cards in order of your choice with one click of a button.
Furthermore, trackable smart wallet, the Parliament and Senate come equipped with a Tile Bluetooth tracker that allows you to easily locate the wallet using your smartphone and keeps the wallet and your phone within a trackable distance. If you still lose your Ekster 2.0 wallet, you will be automatically notified of it’s most recent location whenever a Tile community member passes by it.
More importantly, the tracker runs on solar energy so you don’t need to change battery or charge it at intervals. In addition, RFIF/NFC protection guards your cards from private data thieves.
