This is still the best and most secure hardware wallet for Ethereum Ether as at the time of compiling this list.

Bitfi stores your Ether securely offline. Considering security, Bitfi security is state of the art with the development team claiming it to be unhackable. This claim is based on the fact that nothing is stored on this device; not the seed keys or the private keys.

Then how does it guarantee security? It guarantees security in a very unique way.

On set up, Bitfi prompts you to create a single word private key that is not stored on the device or on any server in the world. This single word is remembered only by the user and serves as a password and also a private key.

Ledger wallet is one of the cheapest Ether hardware wallets money can buy and costs from $59 — $119. In this wallet, your Ether and other cryptos are stored offline on the device. In a case where you want to spend your Ether, Ledger signs you in with the private key stored on the device.

KeepKey is one of the most popular hardware wallets in town. It is another great Ether wallet that supports other cryptocurrencies as well. KeepKey is greatly secured and privacy-centric. It stores crypto assets by keeping the private keys offline and backed by a seed phrase.
