Tiltcard: Phone Stand that fits in your Wallet

Tiltcard phone and tablet stand

Now for something a little different... We bring you the latest news of wallets all the time, and as you know by now, our general mantra is decluttering and slimming down wallets (the clue is in the name there really). For that reason, it's pretty rare that we advocate the adding of something to your wallet, but this is an exception to that rule. The reason is that Tiltcard looks like it could be a pretty useful bit of kit for many to add to their wallet.

A phone stand is a must for some, as it can be used for a variety of useful purposes such as video chats, movies, news, texts, books, recipes, alarm clock, taking videos and photos and so on, freeing up your hands for more useful things, or just freeing them from the effort of holding your phone up (never has first world problems sounded so apt, but the struggle is real).

About Tiltcard phone stand

The Tiltcard is a phone stand that is credit card sized, so can easily fit inside a wallet (or even a phone case, purse or so on). Now, there are a few wallets out there that have built in phone standing capabilities - the Wezel wallet for example is designed with that sole purpose in mind. The Trove wallet also has a really cool hidden way of transforming into a phone stand (check out our video of the Trove as a phone stand). However, if you find these wallets don't really suit what you are looking for, but you would still like to have a phone stand handy anywhere you go, the Tiltcard is an ideal solution.

The Tiltcard measures 2" x 3.25", so shouldn't add too much bulk to your pocket, but allows you the functionality to have a phone stand wherever you go. The Tiltcard has a press fit hinge design, and whilst I'm no expert on what that means, it appears that it allows the stand to provide multiple viewing angles with a secure locked in mechanism. The use of the phone stand appears simple, it is just a case of pulling it up, locking it into the desired angle and placing your phone onto the stand.

The creators, Thomas Formanes and Dave Tabao - based in New Jersey, have said that the Tiltcard doesn't just stop at being a phone stand, but can also support a mini tablet. For a full size tablet, they recommend the use of 2 Tiltcards to support the extra heft.

The Tiltcard phone and tablet stand is made from steel, so is fairly lightweight, and is finished with a zinc plating in either black or clear, which will protect the product from corrosion or scratching. The Tiltcard logo is displayed on the stand part in either silver or red lettering to give it a stylish finish.

The Tiltcard has already blown past it's humble funding target and has just under 2 weeks left to run. At a very reasonable $8 per phone stand, it is easy to see why this has proved popular. For more information or to pledge yourself, visit the Tiltcard Kickstarter page.
