Product is rated as #6 in category Hardware Wallets

The Cobo Vault proves itself as one of the toughest hardware wallets on the market. These wallets possess military-grade security, coupled with air-gapping technology to ensure no contact with other machines at any point. They incorporate a number of innovative security measures; with wallets designed to self-destruct when under physical damage or potential compromise. Their team state that the additional protective case will even withstand the weight of a tank. The Cobo Vault web authentication feature allows users to ensure their wallet is safe and untampered through scanning a QR code. Further coupled with an EAL 5+ secure element, private keys will never leave your wallet and remain owned by you.

Although suitable for both wired/wireless use, the USB-C port is inconveniently placed and can block charging during use. Despite this, the battery is fully detachable to protect against corrosion damage, whilst featuring an additional AAA battery compartment for emergency use. We were impressed with this model, however would like to see more supported cryptocurrencies. Learn more about this model with our pros and cons below.
