The Mous Limitless 3.0 Walnut Case has been in my possession for a few weeks now, so naturally, I needed the accessories to go with it. The Mous Limitless 3.0 Card Wallet is the perfect companion to this case because it uses the AutoAlign magnetic system to attach effortlessly to any Mous Limitless 3.0 case.

Yes, it's similar to the MagSafe system, but in general, the cases and accessories are more affordable than official Apple MagSafe gear. Limitless 3.0 also offers a variety of unique materials like walnut and aramid fiber. My personal favorite case in this line is the walnut material, and the full-grain leather card wallet looks beautiful against the wood panel. The card wallet snaps onto the back of any Mous Limitless 3.0 case and holds two cards securely in place usually. I'll go into more of that later, but first, let's see the pros and cons.

Mous Card Wallet: Price and availability

The Mous Card Wallet is not difficult to find. You can buy it from the Mous website, of course, and it is also available at Amazon and Best Buy. The standard price is $40, but the wallet does go on sale periodically. We'll be sure to post any new discounts on the Mous Limitless 3.0 line in our deals section. No matter the price, this is a high-quality product that is sure to last, and you can find it easily at any of the major retailers mentioned above.

The Mous Limitless 3.0 Card Wallet's look and feel are very nice, with smooth full-grain leather and a minimal design. It is a simple cardholder that includes two slots for credit cards. You could hypothetically slip some cash in there as well, but it would be a tight fit. I like the slim, lightweight design and high-quality leather material. When used with any of the Limitless 3.0 cases, it's an attractive and sophisticated combo.

This product adds a ton of convenience to your daily routine, especially if you're in a hurry. When I want to head out and run errands without carrying the extra weight of a purse, I snap this onto my iPhone with an ID and a credit card, and I'm ready to go. It's also convenient for a night out on the town or a jog, whenever you need to keep your hands free.

The look and feel are very nice.

The Limitless 3.0 wallet is straightforward to use. The AutoAlign magnetic system makes it possible to snap onto the back of the case in just the right position. The cards remain securely in their pockets, even when the iPhone has jostled around in my purse. I see no danger of the cards falling out. The card wallet stays in place because of the magnets, although I did have one detachment issue, which we can discuss in the following section.

Mous Card Wallet: The accidental detachment

The one incident I had with this detachable wallet was an accidental detachment. Although it only happened once, it did give me a scare when I dropped the iPhone onto a concrete surface, only to find that the Limitless 3.0 Card Wallet was gone when I picked it up! It was a very hard fall, I admit, hard enough that the screen would have likely broken without a good protective case in place. Regardless, it bears mentioning that the magnetic card wallet can fall off during heavy impacts. The one time this happened, I found the card wallet immediately at my feet, so no harm was done.

Lastly, I wouldn't mind seeing this product in more colorways. If it came in several bright colors to contrast with the understated color scheme of the Limitless 3.0 line of cases, the combination would be striking. Maybe this is something Mous can implement in the future.

Mous Card Wallet: Competition

There are not many magnetic card wallets made for the iPhone, so there's no heavy competition for this innovative product. The main contender is, of course, the Apple Leather Wallet with MagSafe. This product's main advantage over the Mous Limitless 3.0 Card Wallet is that it can be used on a naked iPhone 12 due to the built-in MagSafe system. I never use a naked iPhone myself, but this might be important to some folks. The main disadvantage of the Apple Leather Wallet, however, is the price. It's a good $20 more expensive than the Limitless 3.0 Card Wallet, which is no small difference. If you're looking for good value for the price, Mous is the way to go.

Mous Card Wallet: Should you buy it?

You should buy this if ...

  • You appreciate fine leather materials.
  • You'd like to free up your pockets and hands.
  • You're a minimalist.
  • The Apple MagSafe products seem expensive to you.

You shouldn't buy this if...

  • You tend to drop your iPhone, often and hard.
  • You prefer vivid color combos.

If you love the idea of running errands without the extra bulk of a wallet or bag, you'll love the Limitless 3.0 Card Wallet and its accompanying line of Limitless 3.0 cases. This simple leather card wallet turns your wallet and iPhone into one minimal unit. The fine leather material and simple design of this wallet look great against the aramid fiber or wood panels that make up the Limitless 3.0 iPhone cases. Together they make a fine-looking pair to go with an already fine-looking iPhone 12. This product is a delightful combination of convenience and attractive design.
