There's a new light-weight option in town that's making bulky wallets obsolete. The Aluma Wallet promises to be indestructible and it claims to protect the contents inside your wallet as well. It's easy touch latch guarantees quick access and it's accordion design makes getting your cards out easy.
Locksmith Charles Harris with Discount Locksmith wanted to see if he could knock a dent in this light weight wallet. "It's got aluminum backing to it but it is plastic in the center. You have a lot of space where you can put driver's license credit cards, money anything like that," says Harris.
The makers also claim that the Aluma Wallet will protect your cards magnetic strips from damage and prevent identity theft by keeping cards with RFID chips safe from scanners. "The strips on the back are magnetic, and putting it behind aluminum, aluminum is not magnetic. So that field can't be broken by the aluminum so it will work to keep from the RF computers that are out here from getting your information off your card," says Harris.
The infomercial says it protects against spills. So, Charles wanted to put that claim to the test with coffee. "We poured the coffee all the way around the complete lining of where it opens and closes and even where the hinges are. it was water proof, we do give it that," says Harris.
It also guarantees that a heavy truck is no match for the Aluma Wallet and Charles couldn't resist. Here's what happened when he put it under his tire going forward. "Oh, that didn't sound good," says Harris. And then he put it in reverse. "No, that ain't no good, there's no damage to anything on the inside. The wallet is ruined. No way it will latch back now," says Harris.
In your opinion is this a deal or a dud? "It's a dud," says Harris.
By the way the Aluma Wallet will cost you $10 dollars.
