We're upgrading our product portfolio - and proud to introduce the NEW WUDN Qi Wireless Fast Charger covered in beautiful real wood.
We designed the new wireless charger to respect the beauty, simplicity and sophistication of your phone. Whether it's an Apple iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy, it's beautiful, and your charging accessories should complement that beauty.
And we've added the Sawtooth Mountains Inlay edition.
The WUDN Wooden Qi Wireless Fast Charging Pad is thin, beautiful and functional. Delivers Qi fast charge standard wireless charging to any compatible device including iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, Motorola Droid, Nokia, HTC, Huawei, LG & More:
Just a year after the release of the original iPhone X, Apple is back with a revamped 2018 phone lineup with multiple new handsets, starting with the iPhone Xs pronounced "iPhone 10 S" – all improving on last year’s $1,000+ flagship phone: The iPhone X now has a super-sized big brother in the new iPhone Xs Max.
Available in gold, silver, and dark gray, the smaller Xs sport a 5.8-inch screen, and the new Xs Max gets a huge 6.5-inch screen that’s larger than a Samsung Galaxy Note 9; both with OLED display technology for rich colors in pictures and videos. Amazingly these devices are not any larger than previous models. Thanks to the slimmer bezels, the iPhone Xs Max is only the same size as last year’s iPhone 8 Plus.
Apple says its OLED screens are even brighter and refresh at 120Hz. The screen now offers HDR support for enhanced viewing and smoothness, and the rumor that 3D Touch was going away turns out to be nonsense. A good viewing experience isn’t just about the screen: sound matters too. For those of you that aren’t married to your headphones, Apple has given both phones new speakers and their calling it “wide stereo sound”.
It took me a while to love Face-ID. Thankfully Apple is only making improvements. So, of course, all three models are getting notches on top for all the sensors required to pull off Face ID.
Inside that little notch is an ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, flood illuminator, infrared camera, and a 3D dot projector that can scan your face to make sure that you—and hopefully only you—can unlock your device. Apple claims an upgrade of the iPhone’s algorithms means Face ID recognizes you faster.
On to the single best feature of new mobile devices: Apple has redesigned the iPhone Xs’ camera with dual 12-MP sensors: one for wide-angle shots, and one for telephoto. And both cameras will come with optical image stabilization. When you shoot your world with portrait mode or special depth effects, both cameras work together to add extra dimension to your shots. Not sure what “Extra Dimension” really means. We need to see it in action before accepting the gospel from Cupertino.
And for 2018, Apple’s new Smart HDR feature will now shoot a four-shot burst to make sure you don’t miss anything, and maybe improve the chances of catching that perfect shot.
More an evolution than a revolution, Apple says the standard X will last 30 minutes longer than last year’s iPhone X. That’s an incremental increase at best. This is where Apple uses every bit of the larger devices to cram in more battery. The iPhone Xs Max features the biggest battery Apple has ever put in an iPhone, resulting in an extra 90 minutes of runtime compared to today’s iPhone X. If you can handle the larger devices, you will probably love the new batteries.
If you travel internationally is matters and both the iPhone Xs and Xs Max come with space for dual SIMs. Switching between carriers should be a breeze.
Both the iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage sizes, with the smaller Xs starting at $1,000, and the larger Xs Max starting at $1,100. They will be available for pre-order on Friday, September 14, with shipments going out a week later, on September 21st.
Watch this space for updates on real wood phone cases. It makes sense to embrace the newest technology, but wrap it in a case with some soul.
*TL;DR (Too Long, Didn’t Read)
We have been looking around the interwebs for months, searching for the right phone holder we could cover in beautiful veneer. I just could not put a pop-socket on my phone; it felt way too silly. We finally found it and promptly ordered 5000 of them. Small, lightweight, strong steel construction, and flexible; We're calling it the "RNGR".
It has all the features you are looking for and more style than should expect from a simple accessory for your phone. These are great looking ring holders, with or without the wood, but you know us... If there is a flat surface, we're putting wood veneer on it. At first I thought it might be dumb but I was 100% wrong. (yes honey, you were 100% right). With the wood veneer, they look way better than I expected. Stylish, elegant even, the RNGR covered in wood is beautiful.
The first wooden ring holder & stand for phones and tablets only from WUDN.
The RNGR is small and lightweight, but the steel construction is satisfyingly heavy to hold to and use. It has the construction and feel, of real quality compared to cheap and thin plastic ring holders.
The RNGR is the highest quality and most flexible phone ring holder and stand you can buy. With 360 degree rotation for a comfortable fit in your hand at any angle. And, 180 degree of angle for the stand function offering the perfect viewing angle for whatever you are watching.
The RNGR is made of solid steel and works with all types of magnetic car and wall mounts.
The RNGR doesn't use a cheap sticker. This is strong 3M adhesive. Easy to re-position if necessary, but once in place, the 3M adhesive holds strong.
The RNGR is comfortable, flexible and stylish. Fits on your finger like a glove. Well balanced, makes holding on to your phone in any orientation, a breeze. Unlike other ring holders, the Ringsta is also a phone stand with 180 degrees of tilt, you can watch movies or videos at the perfect angle.
Don’t settle for the same ring holder or pop-socket that everyone else has. Stand out from the crowd with a wooden RNGR from WUDN. Each one handcrafted with real wood, cut and assembled by the WUDN team.
Yes, every one is covered in real wood. Each wood is hand selected by our team for beauty and uniqueness. Wood options for most all of our wood accessories include Mahogany, Black Walnut, Carmalized Bamboo or Aromatic Cedar.
Depending on the placement of your RNGR on the back of your phone or case, you may still be able to use Qi wireless charging. We can’t guarantee it of course. You should buy one and test it with your specific charger.
Yes, the RNGR is constructed from steel and then covered in real wood. It will work great with magnetic car or wall mounts.
It could, but unlike plastic and other synthetic materials, our wood accessories actually get better looking over time. We ship our products with only one light layer of polyurethane. This means the wood will age and the more you use it, the more the wood will look authentic and vintage. Some artisans actually use coffee to stain wood in beautiful mocha hues.
Of course. Who would want a beautiful Aromatic Cedar case and a matching RNGR with a cedar back. Something like this:
I think we squeezed in 20 or more sites, amazing food in charming sidewalk cafes and barely saw the hotel room. I think that’s how it’s supposed to work.
Of course, after killing it in Rome for a day, we needed 7-days of perfect relaxation in the Italian countryside.

Change is good – and it can be impossible to know what change you might need until you get out there and experience it. I have NEVER met a traveler who said: “I regret going on that trip to the Andes; I should’ve just stayed on my couch”. Just doesn’t happen. Travel is change. You will come back different, and glad you did.
Learn stuff you didn’t know you didn’t know – right, there’s lots I don’t know. An even bigger universe of unknowns is the stuff I didn’t even know was out there. Travel is about genuinely new experiences that cannot be replicated in your hometown.
Meeting new people – at the end of the day, or the end of your life, I promise, you will not regret the things; you will regret the time lost with people. Travel is about meeting and appreciating people. The people that will make your life a rich and diverse tapestry of knowledge and probably some lifelong relationships.

Yes, keeping your phone in excellent condition goes a long way towards maintaining high resale and trade-in value. You should keep your phone in a case at all times - and always add a real glass (not plastic screen protector). As iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones get more expensive, the resale and trade-in value has been going up as well. For $25 now, you could add several hundred dollars to the value of your phone when it's time to upgrade. Read: 6 Ways to Boost the Resale Value of Your Phone
No, the WUDN slim cases come with a properly sized cutout for the headphone port (on iPhone 6 models) and lightning port. You will NOT need a dongle for your headphones. Having said that, how about a matching set of Walnut Bluetooth Earbuds.
WUDN cases do not come with a steel plate built in. We are looking to add that feature in the future. In the meantime, we know of many customers that have added a steel plate inside their WUDN case with great results. Here is a 4-pack of metal plates designed exactly for this purpose.
We did a long form blog post about that complete with pictures and videos. Take a look: We Built a Laser Engraved Phone Case from Scratch
Of course. We have a number of designs from cool artistic skulls to the "Sawtooth Mountains Traveler", and most of our cases are available in different wood types and species. You should have a couple of cases, at least, to change your style to match the moment. Monday through Friday in the office call for a simple, conservative case, and Fridays in the club call for something with a bit more style.
It could, but unlike plastic and other synthetic materials, our wood cases actually get better looking over time. We ship our cases with only one light layer of polyurethane. This means the case will age and the more you use it, the more the wood will look authentic and vintage. Some artisans actually use coffee to stain wood in beautiful mocha hues. (make sure your phone is out of the case when you decide to drop it in your coffee).
Of course, we offer a full custom shop here. The process is simple: find your image or logo (in black and white - jpg format) and send it to us. Pretty straightforward. We will get to work on design and production right away. You can also customize or personalize a matching journal/planner, mousepad or flask. How cool to have a personalized wooden phone case and a set of matching wood accessories.
Thermoplastic Urethane - A hybrid material, TPU is a mixture between hard plastic and soft silicone. A very dense and smooth rubber, TPU cases are made to slide in and out of the pocket easily, without attracting lint. TPU cases are more durable, slightly elastic and much stronger than silicone. WUDN uses TPU case templates which are then covered by real wood.
Duh. How cool are you on Saturday afternoon with a Bamboo world-map phone case and matching Bamboo Frame Sunglasses. Seriously.

Phone cases are touched, used and seen every day – nothing else comes close.
I spent 20 years in corporate marketing buying promo products, and a year on this side of the fence as a supplier to the promotional products industry. Some promo products are simply better at conveying a brand message thousands of times throughout the year. Here’s our take on the top 10 reasons why. Simple, compelling and mostly obvious. Feel free to copy / paste this for your next prospecting email.
Seen by the owner up to 30,000 times per year. And, phone cases will be seen by others throughout the users day. People literally hold the phone up in front of them while texting or talking, displaying the case for all to see.
Phone cases get used <period>. I have drawers full of promotional USB drives, and a closet full of golf shirts. They were great once, but nothing like a phone case that I will literally carry on my person every day.
Home, work, church, grocery store, daycare, the tradeshow. A custom branded phone case will go everywhere your clients and their clients go.
Between the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy over 80% of the global smartphone market is covered.
I may not wear that shirt until tomorrow (if at all) but the phone case, I can slip on immediately and begin enjoying (and communicating a brand message) right that minute.
Cheaper plastic cases from China can be had for low single digits. Laser engraved, real wood phone cases, handcrafted in the USA from sustainable forests can be had for less than $10 at reasonable quantity.
Of course, plastic cases can be printed with virtually anything, in any color. Wood phone cases with a laser engraving are still highly customizable while delivering the user a more subtle brand image and higher style, increasing the likelihood it will actually be used.
Wooden phone cases are laser engraved and assembled in the USA. Reasonable quantities can be built and shipped in days, not weeks.
No batteries, no sharp edges, no warning labels, and no shipping restrictions. Phone cases are easy.
