BulletTrain SAFE Wallet Update for June 16, 2024

BulletTrain SAFE Wallet 

Update for June 16, 2023

Many concerned customers have been writing in asking why BulletTrain has been so slow with updated models? We were underway on the design of the BulletTrain SAFE Wallet for the iPhone 15 family, then something unexpected occurred. We moved our production from China to the U.S. several years ago, and we found a great home with a great company in the U.S. 

I had a meeting with my project manager who owned part of the manufacturing company we had been working with for years, and he sat me down and said, "After 28 years, I am leaving the company. I don't think it will be easy for you continue on with the existing management, but I wish you the best."

It would be an understatement to say I was completely traumatized to learn this, as our project manager, who owned part of the company had assured me he would not be retiring for many years to come. I have been trying to work with the existing management, but it appears like I might have to switch companies, which would slow down things even further, but I by no means have given up.

As soon as I know more, I will post another update.

iPhone 15 SAFE WALLET Roadmap

We were underway on the design of the BulletTrain SAFE Wallet for the iPhone 15 family. We definitely planned to make a model for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and maybe for the Plus, but I am leaning away from doing one for the 15 Pro and 15, as they are not selling nearly as well as the 15 Pro Max and 15 Plus. I haven't made up my mind yet, once I do I will post an update. We are moving as quickly as we can to get to market, and hope to be in production on the 15 models within 3 months.

We are also working on an enhancement to the camera area to give it even more protection—assuming that is possible. Also, we are working on an interesting solution for the new multi-function mute replacement button.

We have been working on dialing in the colors which has been far more complicated than I would like. This has slowed down things but we are on it. I am blown away with how cool the BulletTrain SAFE Wallet looks in different colors as this option adds a whole new dimension.

In the front row, on the left we see our classic BulletTrain colors of Ruby Red, Polar White, BulletTrain Blue and Stealth Black. On the right we see three new colors named Milk Chocolate, Butterscotch, and Electric Tangerine. Electric Tangerine is like a Lambo Gold color so it really pops. Behind we see two more metallic colors which include Tahitian Blue, and RainForest Green. We also see Perfect Pink and Royal Purple.

Our next step we are working on now is to create SAFE BUTTONS in all these same colors, as well as matching hollow core wallet doors. Below we see a few assembled prototype BulletTrain SAFE Wallet models.

Update for July 26, 2023

I want to share an update with you about BulletTrain in general. Several years ago we decided to move production from China to the United States. I thought doing so would be relatively easy, but as it turns out, it was pretty complicated. 

The great news is we finally completed the transfer and are moving full speed ahead in the United States, which is going well. I thought I would share the image below which shows the first BulletTrain SAFE Wallet case body production prototypes made in the U.S. in different colors.

We plan to keep producing all CLASSIC BulletTrain products the following colors:

    -Ruby Red (Pictured Above)

    -Polar White (Pictured Above)

    -BulletTrain Blue 

    -Stealth Black. 

I am experimenting with adding some fun FASHION colors, which are all pictured above:

    -Royal Purple

    -Metallic Tangerine, which is like Lambo Orange

    -Metallic Tahitian Blue

    -Metallic Rainforest Green

    -Hot Pink

All the colors above will likely be produced as an option for our SAFE BUTTONs, which include the Volume Up/Down button, as well as the Power Button and new Lanyard Quick Disconnect. I am also contemplating creating entire BulletTrain SAFE Wallet models in some of these colors.

Also, I am experimenting with creating an Italianate color combo BulletTrain SAFE Wallet designed to look like more like a traditional brown leather wallet which includes:

    -Dark Chocolate Brown

    -Toffee Tan (Pictured Above)

Over the next few months you will see many updates to BulletTrain, including an updated website and product range. Thanks for your continues patience and I am certain the best is yet to come!!!
