Leading tech accessories brand, ESR, announces the launch of its HaloLock Geo Wallet Stand, a MagSafe wallet with full Apple-certified Find My functionality."Apple users looking to keep their wallets safe used to face a dilemma: attach the official MagSafe wallet to their phone or attach an AirTag to their wallet. The first keeps everything you need together but if your wallet comes off, which is very likely given its weak magnetic strength, then you can only track the last location it was attached. The second lets you track your wallet's real-time location at any time but gives you an ugly, bulky wallet without the snap-and-go power of MagSafe. We decided to overcome this dilemma and create a wallet that combines the convenience of MagSafe with the full Find My functionality of AirTag," explained Tracy He, Product Manager at ESR.
