ELLIPAL Titan Review 2024

(87%, Review by Malte)

ELLIPAL Titan is the world’s first completely metal, airtight hardware wallet. It promises special security against physical attacks. In addition, it is still designed for mobile use like its predecessor and completely dispenses with network connections. This is because the hardware wallet exchanges its data with the smartphone via QR codes. You can read more about how this works and more in the following review.

First Impression

Ellipal Titan Content

The entire contents of the ELLIPAL Hardware Wallet (ELLIPAL Mnemonic Metal must be ordered separately)

The ELLIPAL Titan hardware wallet can currently be ordered directly from the manufacturer at a price of 169,00 $ (click here to check the current price). Shipping to the the whole world is free of charge. As a payment option, all common ones are available via PayPal, as well as cryptocurrencies.

Important note for buying hardware wallets.

Hardware Wallets should preferably be ordered directly from the manufacturer or official resellers if possible. Dubious stores or private sellers on platforms like ebay or amazon could manipulate the devices for their own purposes or trick the buyer. This way, the thieves can steal all the coins from your hardware wallet at a later time. Unfortunately, there have already been such cases in the past.

The device is sent in a small black box, which is welded in foil. If you would like to, you can also order the product MNEMONIC Metal. This allows you to safely store the backup key (recovery seed) generated during setup.

Contents of the Package

In addition to the ELLIPAL Titan hardware wallet, the package also contains a quick start guide, a congratulations card, two stickers and a piece of paper to write down the recovery key. Also included is the Ellipal safety adapter. This can be connected to the connectors on the bottom of the ELLIPAL Titan and offers a micro-USB port for charging the device. For this purpose, you can use the short USB-A to Micro-B charging cable, which is also attached. In addition, the adapter has an input for a Micro SD card, which allows to update the firmware. However, the SD card required for this is not included in the scope of delivery.

The hardware wallet itself has been improved compared to its predecessor. The housing is much more robust and valuable due to the aluminium alloy used compared to the previously used plastic. This fully air-encapsulated design also has the advantage that it is resistant to dust and water. The case measures 118x66x9.7mm and weighs 138g, includes a 1400mAh battery with a standby battery life of 259 hours according to the manufacturer.

Setting up the ELLIPAL Wallet

Important note about setup.

Never use a hardware wallet that is already set up. You must choose your own PIN code or password and do the backup yourself. This is not given by anyone!

First, download the ELLIPAL app from the store of your smartphone. Then you turn on the ELLIPAL Titan and start creating an account. For this purpose, you set both an account name and a password. The hardware wallet then generates the seed, which is used to generate the addresses of the cryptocurrencies. This can be backed up once via the recovery key in order to be able to restore your account.

Important note about hardware wallet backup (Recovery Seed)

Your Recovery Seed is the backup key to all your cryptocurrencies and apps. The Recovery Seed (backup) can only be viewed once. Never make a digital copy of the Recovery Seed and never upload it online. Keep the Recovery Seed in a safe place, ideally also safe from fire and water. Special backup products, for example Billfodl are suitable for this.

No one but yourself can be held liable for any financial losses caused by improper handling of sensitive data.

Of course, instead of creating a new account, you can restore an existing one. ELLIPAL accepts a security key in the form of 12, 15, 18, 21 or 24 words. Finally, the “Connect” icon connects to the app using QR codes.


The hardware wallet is always necessary if you want to send cryptocurrencies or make changes to your accounts. Otherwise, the accounts can also be viewed via the app without the hardware wallet. In addition, the app offers other features such as live tickers of various coins and current news

Making transactions

Ellipal Titan Transaction

The principle of signing a transaction with the ELLIPAL Titan

A transaction can be easily created via the interface in the ELLIPAL app. A QR code is then generated, which must be scanned using the hardware wallet’s camera. This sends all the necessary information to the hardware wallet, which can then sign the transaction. This in turn generates a QR code that is scanned by app. Then the transaction is sent via the app to the corresponding network.

Update of the Firmware

To update the firmware you have to download the current version as a ZIP archive from the ELLIPAL homepage. The archive is then copied to a micro-SD card and then inserted into the ELLIPAL security adapter. Only cards with a maximum of 32GB are supported.

Now you turn off the device, connect the adapter to the device and also connect it to the computer to charge the battery. If you switch the hardware wallet back on, you can start the update process in the settings. It is important not to interrupt the update process by disconnecting the adapter. Because it is not very tight due to the magnets, one has to pay special attention here. The update process may take more than five minutes.


Ellipal Titanium Handling

ELLIPAL can be used completely with your smartphone

As Ellipal is a hardware wallet designed for mobile use, it can be used on the following platforms:

The following cryptocurrencies are currently supported, with continuous work on additional coins:

Documentation and Support

ELLIPAL comes with a small manual that guides you through the most important steps in English. There is also a small knowledge base on the official homepage that answers the frequently asked questions. If you have further questions, you can also reach the support team via the homepage.

Both the app and the hardware wallet are not available in German, so you have to switch to English.


As a hardware wallet manufacturer, ELLIPAL naturally attaches great importance to security. To achieve this, ELLIPAL has developed a security system that protects the user from hacking attempts while providing mobile support.

Note about security

A hardware wallet is the most secure way to store cryptocurrencies. This is because these devices store the private keys that provide access to your cryptocurrencies. Only a hardware wallet can effectively protect private keys through numerous security measures. Even though all hardware wallets are considered very secure, there are small differences between each model. In addition, even with a hardware wallet, it cannot be 100% ruled out that a hacker can extract information with physical access with great effort.

An essential part of this is that ELLIPAL does not have any physical connection to the Internet. ELLIPAL is a completely airtight hardware wallet that only relies on QR codes to transfer data. It cannot be connected to connections such as USB, Wifi or Bluetooth. All transactions are only securely signed with QR codes. All QR codes are verifiable and secure, which is why ELLIPAL has publicly put its open source QR code on GitHub.

ELLIPAL Titan - Anti Disassembly and Anti Tamper Testing

When you play this YouTube video, data is transmitted to Google.

In addition, the ELLIPAL Titan is robustly made of metal and sealed in a dust and water resistant way. It is impossible to break open the wallet without leaving any lasting damage. The anti-manipulation feature also deletes all keys as soon as a break-in is detected, protecting the wallet from physical attacks and hacks.


Ask your own question

If the manufacturer Ellipal disappears from the market and the app is no longer available for download, users of the Ellipal app will no longer be able to download or update the app, and it is likely that the app will no longer function as intended. This could cause problems for users who rely on the app to access their cryptocurrency accounts, as they may not be able to access their funds without the app. It is always important to be aware of the risks associated with using any software or service and to have a plan for dealing with those risks. In the case of a cryptocurrency wallet, it’s a good idea to have a backup plan in case the app or service becomes unavailable. Therefore, you have your Recovery Seed.

You can enter wrong password 6 times intentionally, then Ellipal Titan (Mini) will be wiped and will be back to factory settings.

I was given one of these to test and was impressed enough to say that all the other bad comments here are probably secret service agents !!! this is the kind of site where you find them ask these people do for a living ….they are capitalist right wing bigots they dont care about the chinese people that slave awaay to make ther fat pig things.

28. November 2023 um 2:41

Will the Titan 2 operate with both DEX & CEX or will it work with just the DEX????
Thank you

5. November 2023 um 23:20

Camera doesn’t work anymore, not sure why it stopped working. Customer support couldn’t provide any reason why it stopped working. Not sure if any other customers have this issue, unable to move funds. Wallet isn’t bad, has its issue, but not bad. If there is a fix for the camera, please let me know.

7. August 2023 um 17:11

I ordered this and was not impressed at all! I am still trying to download the SD card and nothing happening I don’t trust this to transfer anything! I contacted ellipall for help and a guy asked for my seed phase. very doggy? two weeks on still unsure whether to send eney coins at all looks the part but lots of issues need addressing ??

27. July 2023 um 5:17

Stay the fuck away from this product, Ive had mine for a month. It was working for a while and all of a sudden it shits the bed and wont turn on anymore. Its just some dead piece of shit on my desk. I normally wouldn’t be too upset about something like this sometimes devices are defective, hey I get it. But their customer support is so ass, it takes multiple days for them to get back to you and they ask you stupid fucking questions that don’t lead anywhere or help you in the least. It almost feels like they’re stalling for time. The only way to communicate is DM. Like there’s no way of getting in a call with these fucks. As soon as I get a new one, I’m pulling all of my funds out and transferring it to a ledger. fuck this wallet.

Ellipal App’s QR reader is a disaster.
Don’t work!
It does not focus right and therefore it is unable to read cold wallet’s QR code!
What a waste of my money.

it’s great until you’re not able to send your crypto anywhere because it gives you a please try again message. Google ellipal not sending or ellipal please try again message. and you find tons of people unable to move their crypto. yes they might fix the problem after weeks, but you missed the need to sell by then and could have lost thousands. buy a ledger. this is junk with no way to contact the company except email with a day or two lag.

Nice wallet, looks great, very simple but we need to test it more to write some legit and full review. At first look it looks like nice and tough android phone with all wallets at my hand.

29. August 2022 um 12:04

I have always stored my crypto on coinbase or krakken. With the crazy hacking and coinbase putting out a message that they can be bankrupt and will take everyone’s money, or the government could follow and do what Canada did and freeze your crypro. So my only chose was to be proactive!. At first I bought Keystone wallet, but found it wasn’t very good and their app didn’t work, plus it doesn’t support many coins and expensive I sent it back disappointed. The ellipal was my second choice, so I purchased it when it went on sale. I am pleased to say it works very well without a problem very simple to use and understand, if you have questions check out Youtube or Ellipal.

23. August 2022 um 12:19

Nice and easy to use, there are a lot of useful tutorials on Ellipal’s website, helping you to set your device. Morover, the help desk is very rapid to reply and really ready to help.

15. August 2022 um 11:27

The Ellipal wallet is one of the good wallets I have played around with. Easy to use once younger the hang of it. If your moving from secux ledger and a Trezor. I own a few devices of each to play around with and for the price your paying this is one of the good devices you will have specially if you are looking to hodl and doing some DEX trading.

29. December 2021 um 1:49

I got ellipal as a gift. If transfer all my crypto from coinbase to my ellipal wallet. Is that means my crypto no longer in the market? Taking out your investment in another word.

4. August 2022 um 7:54

The crypto still with value, You can always transfer out Ellipal to exchange if you want to sell and cashout.

21. December 2021 um 11:28

Can i use this with other wallets also like Exodus ? or only with their wallet?

4. August 2022 um 7:57

Of course, You can always transfer in/out cryptos to Exodus or other different exchange platform.

Over 2.5 months waiting for this. WORST costumer service EVER. They answer questions with answers that don’t answer the question. In the EU they send it to Germany storage to send it around the EU. So no import costs for EU ppl, as they import it to there location in Germany. And we order it from Germany, not Hong Kong. First package arrived they said, but it did not.

Now they send my package, that got lost in the mail (there private delivery service mail), from Hong Kong. Result, import is 1/3 of the total price for import. And they don’t want to pay that. Despite import being in the item price if they distribute it from Germany. So not gone pay that cost on top of everything i already paid. They don’t want to pay it, instead saying i need to pay it and they will pay it back. So that is a big red flag for scamming. Also, they said they would pay 25$ back for the import. But the import is 76,79$. They are just faking delivery with there own transport services. And then asking you to pay even more if the package does not arrive. Seems like they are having some delivered just to seem legit. Immens amount of reviews of ppl getting nothing, not getting refunds. And a lot of review that are pos that seem like paid reviews.

Keeping all mails of conversation for legal reasons. They said i would get a refund, but i am pretty sure i wont or it will be a refund waaay lower then the price i paid.

3. June 2021 um 9:41

They offerd to refund me 59$ of the 202$ i paid?!

30. June 2022 um 14:37

Thank you for writing this. Was planning to get it but no way am i supporting a business like that. Pass. Off to get another Ledger.

4. August 2022 um 8:00

Now, There is no longer such shipment issue

I purchased this wallet a month ago and still have not received it. I am trying to get a refund and the company have not refunded my money. Terrible company.

Steve Weber
12. May 2021 um 6:59

JCrypto, On the matter of the refund you are trying to get, if you paid by credit/debit card, I would recommend calling the financial institution through which you got your credit/debit card, and FILING A DISPUTE against the charge–if you had not already done so. They usually side with the customer—especially on matters like this. (from my experience).

NOTE: There is usually a filing deadline–It’s 60 days from either the date of the transaction or the date on which the charge is posted to your account (not sure which–but I would act QUICKLY, since about 30 days have already passed, according to what you indicated).

Give it a shot!
All the best!

I used it to purchase some VET with some of my ETH coins and apparently they took my ETH coins and I’ve lost all my funds for VET over $3400. I find it hard to believe you cannot receive Our funds back. No recommendation here

14. February 2021 um 10:59

I bought my Titan in late 2019 – at first I was happy about the build quality, but this changed according to problems updating the firmware – the ellipal support first sent a second magnet-adapter, because my wallet could not find the sdcard to update the firmware – after months of back and forth the support send a new Titan where they already had done the firmware update and I sent my first one back – now – a year later I again tried to make a firmware-update – and again I have troubles – this time my Titan finds the sdcard, but it tells me, the firmware is up to date, even if it is NOT …. The Magnets from one of the adapters are falling out of the adapter itself since 3 weeks ago, so this adapter is now broke too … sadly I purchased a Ledger, and I transfered my holdings to the Ledger device ….. really disapointed … great concept, but this type of trouble is nothing to HODL long term … sorry – I CAN NOT REDOMMEND it any longer
