Trakdot Relieves The Lost Luggage Anxiety

Posted: Updated:

If you've ever lost your luggage when flying, you know it can be a huge hassle to get it back.

So how much would you pay for peace of mind, next time you fly?

There's a new device that claims to constantly keep track of your luggage and costs under $100.

It's called Trakdot.

A lightweight gadget for about $90 lets you track your luggage.

It's a battery-operated, government-approved transmitter that you leave inside your bag.

It signals its position to cellular towers worldwide and then you track it on an app.

As soon as your flight takes off, it goes to sleep to conserve battery power.

If your suitcase isn't on the carousel, Trakdot will tell you its destination.

Trakdot will also send you alerts via text and email if you're bag isn't where it's supposed to be.
