Moft Flash Wallet Review Phone Kickstand Thin Wallet With ID Window

Wednesday, September 14, 2022

Moft Flash Wallet is a convenient and pocketable solution that you can carry your ID and quickly deploy to stand your smartphone at a moment's notice!

Moft Flash Wallet is made with a polycarbonate (hard plastic) frame that integrates metal sheets and magnets built-in wrapped around with stitched up vegan leather (faux/synthetic leather). 

As a phone kickstand, the Moft Flash Wallet & Stand works great. It is designed to hold a phone in portrait mode (vertically) and landscape mode (horizontally). To set it in kickstand mode, you simply place the Moft Wallet triangularly upside down (like a house roof) on a desk and then, rest the phone up against the wallet. You can then adjust the viewing angle between 45 degrees and 60 degrees.
The Moft Flash Wallet uses a strong hinge mechanism made of stainless steel metal with a memory wire like actuation, which allows you to keep the wallet open at a fixed angle like a clamshell up to 180 degrees. The strong hinge (and the magnets) also allow both halves of the Moft Flash Wallet to remain securely closed. 

Internally, the Moft Flash Wallet features a fabric lined ID window and brand text engraving (Designed By Moft). Once the cards are inserted, there are two ways to slide out the cards: pushing up the card through the ID window and from the outside sliding the card out.  
In kickstand mode, the Moft Flash Wallet provides enough resting power and grip to kickstand a phone in the upright position. The lighter the phone the better, but the Moft Flash Wallet is able to comfortably handle a phone up to 337 grams in weight. It helps if the phone has a rubber protective cover to increase the gripping power and prevent the phone sliding back out of the kickstand.
Dimensions of Moft Flash Wallet are 10cm long x 6.5cm wide x 0.5cm thick. The dimensions of the credit/ID card sleeve are 6cm x 10cm x 0.4cm which is large enough to accommodate 2 credit card ID style cards. You can also use the sleeve pocket to store bank notes.
