Luggage Trackers

Luggage trackers can be useful for helping you keep tabs on your luggage when you travel. They typically work using various technologies, such as GPS, Bluetooth, or cellular networks, to track the location of your luggage. Here’s how they generally work:

  1. GPS Trackers: Luggage trackers equipped with GPS technology can provide real-time location information for your luggage. You can often track the location of your luggage through a smartphone app or website.
  2. Cellular Trackers: Some luggage trackers have built-in cellular connectivity, allowing them to transmit their location data over a cellular network. This enables you to track your luggage remotely, even when it’s far away from you.
  3. Bluetooth Trackers: Bluetooth luggage trackers have a limited range and typically rely on the Bluetooth connection between the tracker and your smartphone. They are more suitable for tracking your luggage in close proximity, such as at the airport.
    At Traveling Bags we stock both Apple Airtags and Tile Trackers.

The effectiveness of luggage trackers can vary based on several factors, including the quality of the device, the availability of a network connection, and the type of tracking technology used. Some considerations when using luggage trackers include:

  1. Battery Life: Ensure that the tracker has a sufficient battery life to last the duration of your trip. GPS and cellular trackers may require more frequent charging than Bluetooth trackers.
  2. Coverage and Connectivity: Cellular-based trackers rely on a cellular signal, so they may not work well in areas with poor reception. GPS trackers may struggle to work indoors or in areas with limited satellite visibility.
  3. Subscription Costs: Some cellular-based trackers require ongoing subscription fees for access to their network. Be aware of these costs when considering a luggage tracker.
  4. Accuracy: The accuracy of the tracker’s location data can vary, with some devices being more precise than others. GPS-based trackers tend to offer higher accuracy.
  5. Ease of Use: Make sure the tracker you choose has a user-friendly app or interface that allows you to easily track your luggage.

Luggage trackers can be effective tools for keeping tabs on your luggage, but their performance can vary. It’s essential to choose a reliable device that meets your needs, considering factors like coverage, battery life, and connectivity.
Additionally, always follow airline regulations and privacy considerations when using luggage and any tracking device.

Travel Plug Adapters vs Power Convertors

This is our comprehensive guide to help you travel better with electronics.  The topics included on this page include

Adapters vs Converters for Newbies

There are two very important things you need to know about traveling with electronics. First, the plug you use at home may not work in a wall socket when traveling because different countries have different plug shapes.

Second, you can’t use some of your electronics while traveling unless they’re dual voltage because countries such as the USA and Canada have 120V electricity while destinations in Europe have 220V electricity.

“In simple terms, the adapter makes your device fit in the holes. The converter changes the electric power going into it.” Just remember that they’re two different devices (there’s no such thing as a travel adapter converter!) This is when you need to know the difference between an adapter and a converter. Here, we explain the popular adapter vs converter question.

Our Tips & Advice

1.) Check everything before you leave.  A dual voltage-rated appliance will display for example ‘INPUT: 110-240V’ on the body of the appliance or its power supply. This means that you will not need a converter or transformer but just a travel adaptor, because Switzerland operates on a 230V supply voltage, which is within the 110- 240V range that the dual voltage appliance operates on.

2.) Don’t take expensive electronics like fancy hairdryers, razors, or other similar dual-voltage appliances.  Even though they say it should work often they burn out, we aren’t sure why it just happens.

3.) Use Surge protectors in addition to the converters and adapters… it will look crazy but may save you $100’s from damaged devices.

4.) The biggest thing to remember is to always know where your devices are. And, before leaving any location check to make sure you have what you came with. This can save you a ton of heartbreak and worry. Anytime you leave an item behind you are putting it at an extreme risk for theft.
