Phone wallets can safely keep your IDs, credit cards, and cash. Because your phone is always with you, having a wallet attached to the phone will make your life easier.
However, before getting a phone wallet, you should check whether it’ll stick firmly to your phone case.
In this article, we’ll discuss whether phone wallets stick to phone cases and explain how to choose a wallet compatible with your phone case.
Here’s Whether Phone Wallets Stick To Phone Cases
Adhesive phone wallets stick firmly to plastic phone cases but don’t stick well to silicone or leather cases. On the other hand, MagSafe wallets stick securely to MagSafe-compatible phone cases but don’t attach firmly to non-MagSafe phone cases.
Phone Wallet Types: Adhesive Vs. Magnetic
There are two types of phone wallets: Adhesive type and Magnetic type.
Adhesive wallets have adhesive tape on the back of the wallet. You have to peel off the outer cover of the adhesive tape and stick the wallet on the back of your phone or phone case.
Magnetic wallets, on the other hand, have magnets inside the wallet and attach to the phone or phone case magnetically without any adhesive.
The most popular magnetic wallet is the Apple MagSafe wallet, which attaches magnetically to a MagSafe phone or a MagSafe-compatible case.
You can also attach MagSafe wallets to Android phones using a MagSafe adapter.
Do Adhesive Phone Wallets Stick To Silicone Phone Cases?
No current adhesive sticks firmly to silicone phone cases. So adhesive wallets might fall off easily if you attach them to silicone cases.
Do Adhesive Phone Wallets Stick To Leather Phone Cases?
Currently, no adhesive sticks securely to leather phone cases, so we don’t recommend getting an adhesive wallet for your leather phone case.
Do Adhesive Phone Wallets Stick To Textured Phone Cases?
Adhesive wallets require smooth flat surfaces for proper bonding; flat surfaces provide the maximum contact area for the adhesive.
On the other hand, textured surfaces have less surface area for contact, so adhesive wallets don’t stick well to textured phone cases and might fall off easily.
Do MagSafe Wallets Stick To Non-MagSafe Cases?
Whether a MagSafe wallet will stick to a non-MagSafe case depends on the non-MagSafe case’s thickness.
If the non-MagSafe case is too thick, the magnetic attraction will not be strong, and a MagSafe wallet won’t stick firmly.
On the other hand, a MagSafe wallet will stick to a thin non-MagSafe case, although the magnetic attraction will be weaker than with a MagSafe-compatible case.
How To Make Sure A Phone Wallet Is Compatible With Your Phone Case?
Adhesive wallets won’t stick firmly to silicone or leather phone cases, so avoid adhesive wallets if you use a silicone or leather case.
On the other hand, MagSafe wallets work best with MagSafe-compatible phone cases and won’t stick firmly to thick non-MagSafe phone cases.
Also, read online user reviews before buying a phone wallet, and make sure the wallet is compatible with your phone or similar phones. Users also talk about whether the wallet works with different phone cases.
Adhesive wallets don’t stick firmly to silicone or leather phone cases, and MagSafe wallets work best with MagSafe-compatible phone cases.
