Nomad, a San Francisco-based startup that has made some interesting iPhone and Apple Watch accessories in the past, is at it again with its new Wallet for iPhone. It "took the ubiquitous bifold wallet and stealthily built a 2,400 mAh battery with an Apple MFi-certified Lightning cable into the spine," the company claims, "without making Wallet any thicker than the average wallet guys are already sitting on."

It's available for pre-order now at a $20 discount of $79. And will be $99 after it ships on November 16.

Wallet will be available through HelloNomad.com, Amazon and for US customers in Best Buy stores. UK and Australian details are yet to be revealed, but $99 converts to around £65 or AU$140, plus shipping if you want to buy it online.
