The TSA approved eGeeTouch travel lock is a handy piece of gadget that promises to keep your luggage safe during travels, without you ever needing to memorize complex combinations. Let's now take a closer look and find out if it really is better than the traditional padlock or combination lock.
After using it for a few days one has to appreciate the ease of unlocking the eGeeTouch padlock without the need to dial in security combinations every time you need to open the bag. It can simply be unlocked with a single tap from the right eGeeTouch NFC tag. Alternately, you can unlock it with your smartphone (Both Apple iOS and the Google Android OS are supported), as long as you are in Bluetooth or NFC range.
The Intelligent Encryption technology used by eGeeTouch makes sure that no other NFC device can be used to unlock your luggage. It uses unique code generation (out of a 100 million possible combinations!) each time you lock it. Just in case the NFC tag or the smartphone itself is lost, the user can use the eGeeTouch app to log in and remove the tag or the registered smartphone from the approved list.
The eGeeTouch is TSA compliant, which means that the TSA authorized airport personnel will be able to open and check your luggage with their master key if required, without having to break open and destroy the lock in the process.
Some other highlights of the eGeeTouch travel lock are as follows.
· Over 3,000 open and lock cycles that should last well over 2 years on just a couple of LR44 batteries
· Color LED indicators to show open/locked status
· Battery compartment cannot be accessed while it's locked, therefore enhancing security
The eGeeTouch padlock is a fine example of technology making its way into every aspect of our lives and it's quite a good one. Made for the convenience of everyone and not just the techies, the travel lock is completely foolproof and can be used by anyone. All in all, it is indeed a better and more convenient alternative to the traditional combination locks we usually use on our luggage.
