BenjiLock TSA Fingerprint Padlock Review
In today’s world, securing your belongings while you travel and strengthening their safety is vital. With advanced fingerprint door locks, most people abandon the regular door locks as they see them as ‘old-school’ things. The Beinjilock TSA Fingerprint Padlock comes in handy.
It’s convenient to use and program. You’ll be glad to have a wonderful feeling of luggage security every time. For those of us who love traveling a lot, this model is a perfect choice for you.
Here we go!
Benjilock fingerprint lock has a decent design with good build quality. This TSA lock comes in two colors, black and white. I have their white version. Please note that this is not a super-strong lock or something. You can easily break it with a basic hammer. If you are looking for a stronger fingerprint lock, check out their 43MM Fingerprint Padlock.
On the front, we have the fingerprint scanner around which there are some LED indicators to indicate whether or not the fingerprint scan is successful. When you put your finger in the scanner, the LEDs lit up blue with a cool rotating animation. If the scan is successful, the lock opens and the LEDs flash blue all at once. If the scan is failed, the lights turn red.
On the back, we have a three number keypad. With this keypad, you can set a backup pin that can be used if the fingerprint doesn’t work. This pin is also helpful if you want to give the lock to someone else for temporary use. We also have a blue LED indicator that blinks when you press the keys.
On the bottom, we have a micro USB port for charging and the TSA unlock port that lets security at the airport manually open the lock. Of course, they will lock it once they finish searching for your luggage.
Stores Up To 5 Fingers
Uniquely, the lock stores up to 5 fingerprints, making it perfect for multiple users. Programming the fingerprint is extremely easy. Just wake up your lock, then enter the already set passcode on the keypad.
Once you’re done, all the LEDs around the reader should light up. This is an indicator that programming is complete. While this process is trouble-free, you’ve got the choice to program up to 5 fingerprints in the padlock. This is one feature that makes this model different when compared to the original Benjilock.
The fingerprint scanner is super fast and accurate
The device has all it takes to provide ultimate security to your personal items. Keep in mind that your fingerprint is the special type of key here. That said, the user will enjoy the extra peace of mind. Personally I have set up more than three fingers just in case. I recommend the same to you. If you can’t get the fingerprint sensor to work, fret not because we have a backup.
Three-Digit Pin Code for Backup
This astonishing precious lock comes with a resettable keypad, which is a secondary option for unlocking it. Although the device features a default pre-programmed passcode, the user can choose to program it with a unique three-digit code. But apply the passcode if the reader fails to work.
Typically, the process included the optimal use of a fingerprint reader. But those who are having a challenge with the fingerprint reader when operating other models are well covered. Fingerprint Padlock gives you a more comfortable run all the time because of its accuracy.
Super Lightweight & Portable
BenjikLock by Hampton is made of die-cast zinc that features exceptionally secure chrome steel shackle. In addition, this 33mm lock body reflects a solid construction. Just like aluminum, zinc alloy is light in weight, and it only weighs 4.6 ounces.
It’s convincing to know that you can carry the device with you everywhere. The lightweight lifestyle design truly makes it portable.
No worries about losing track of your keys while traveling, camping, or taking a flight. Use Benjilock as a travel padlock to lock up and secure your checked baggage. As simple as that!
Up to 6 months Battery Life
Equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, BenjikLock claims up to 6 months of battery life. When fully charged, the 110mAH battery can serve for at least six months until the next recharge. Apart from that, the item is made for unrivaled durable, making it second to none.
A Micro USB cable is another component included. So, it’s simple to recharge. During all that time, the device provides an unbeatable performance.
But wait, the lock is packed with user instructions about recharging and using the lock. It comes in the form of a simple piece of folded paper.
The instructions also outline how to change the code, program the lock, and complete master reset.
This fingerprint lock is Travel Sentry Approved which means if your luggage needs to be checked, the airport security can easily unlock it by using the TSA key present on the lock. This is a very useful feature because some traditional locks will be cut open by airport security if they don’t have other options. So, this is not only a waste of time but also you are losing the lock. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about these things with Benjilock as it is TSA friendly and no harm will come to it whatsoever.
In terms of versatility, the Benjilock is perfect for backpacks, small lockers, storage cases, chains, and more. So, it could be worrying if you left your luggage unsecured while this model is there for you.
Worth mentioning, the durable and robust lock is water and pick-resistant to help you deal with all sorts of security needs. Sure, the device boosts extreme comfort and convenience in your home. Just like other top brands, you never want to miss it with that price range.
Please note that this lock is good for your personal items, don’t use it for other purposes as the lock can be broken very easily.
- The fingerprint scanner is pretty fast and accurate

I have been using this padlock for almost 6 months now and I am very happy with it. I use this at my Gym locker and I’ve never had any issues whatsoever. But please make sure the battery level is good because if the battery dies out, you need a charger or a powerbank to unlock it. Apart from that, don’t use it to store expensive items because the lock is not strong and can be tampered with a hammer if not an iron rod. I would definitely recommend this gadget for everyone, one of the must have gadgets under $50 according to me.
