CoolWallet S overview
The form factor makes the CoolWallet S a unique choice in the hardware wallet market. However, the e-ink display and the button can be a bit clunky to use, and the charging dock tends to disconnect easily. This can be especially inconvenient during a lengthier firmware update.
The CoolWallet S takes about 2 hours to reach a full charge. With periodic charging, the battery should last over 2 years, according to CoolbitX. Like any lithium-ion rechargeable battery, the CoolWallet S will one day lose its ability to hold a charge. Once this happens, users will always be able to use their CoolWallet S when plugged in the charging dock.
The initial setup can be a bit lengthier than it is for other crypto hardware wallets. While the seed length is adjustable, the seed verification process is a bit unconventional and may be complicated for beginners.
CoolWallet S pros and cons
- It can be set up and used with a smartphone or tablet.
- Very portable.
- Waterproof for up to 1 hour.
- Lower selection of coins and tokens when compared to its competitors.
- The setup process can be a bit complicated.
CoolWallet S pricing
As of January 2020, the CoolWallet S is sold for $99.
It’s advised to always buy hardware wallets directly from the manufacturer. Buying second-hand hardware wallets poses the risk of the private keys being compromised.
CoolbitX has come up with an innovative design for a hardware wallet. As the CoolWallet S is shaped like a standard credit card, it’s ideal for you to carry around in a regular cash wallet.
In summary, the CoolWallet S might be an ideal choice for those wishing to try something new in the hardware wallet space.
