Wallet Ninja 18 in 1 Multi-purpose Credit Card Size Pocket Tool
I am a fan of pocket tools. I have a variety I keep around the house with me all the time, so I was happy to get a Wallet Ninja. It promised to do so much.
When I got it, I could see that the Wallet Ninja is well-built. I couldn’t bend it if I tried. There are all sorts of tools, and they are well-labeled on the tool itself. The only problem was a lack of instructions. While most tools were self-explanatory (hex wrench and screwdrivers), others were a bit of a mystery (peeler). I had to go online to see some of it in action.
Some things performed as promised. Others did not. The only tool I did not get a chance to test is the bottle opener. We just don’t drink things that require me to remove the cap.
+ Screwdrivers – They’re small, but they’re functional. As long as you have enough clearance and you don’t need a lot of torque, it’s all good.
+ Hex Wrench – We get the following sizes: #2, #4, #6, #8, #10, #12. They are on the smaller side, but they work. It’s a little hard to grip and give enough torque.
+ Ruler – This is good if you only need to measure 2 inches or less.
WHAT DOESN’T WORK:
- Cell phone stand – Insert any card and the Wallet Ninja is supposed to transform into a cell phone stand. This will only work in landscape position for both small and large phones; but the phones recline so much, they might as well not be on a stand.
- Letter Opener – It works very poorly. I’d rather open letters with my bare hands.
- Box Opener – Worse than the letter opener. It doesn’t open boxes well at all, and I have lots of boxes to practice on.
- Peeler – I didn’t understand this one until I saw it online. It scores citrus fruits so we can peel by hand. I don’t consider it a peeler, and it doesn’t score well.
- Can Opener – I’ve used manual can openers like the ones from the army, so I know how to use them. This does not work as a can opener at all. It doesn’t grip the edge of the can and punch through.
I’m somewhat disappointed in the lack of functionality. I wish it could do all the things it’s supposed to do, and I dislike having to watch a commercial to figure out how to use it.
For small nuts and screws, this works fine, especially for something the size of a credit card. I couldn’t get most of the rest of the tools to do as promised. That’s too bad. I wanted to like it more than I do.
