Hampton debuted its new fingerprint-activated bike lock called the BenjiLock during this week’s Consumer Electronic Show.
According to Hampton, the BenjiLock can store up to 10 fingerprints, enabling friends or family members to share and secure a bicycle without exchanging keys. Moreover, the lock also can be opened with a key for quick use without programming.
The steel-hardened BenjiLock is available in an 8-inch shackle version, which is weather-resistant, IP65-rated and features a pick-and drill-resistant cylinder that’s also bolt cutter-resistant.
“With bicycle sales soaring since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and over 100 million electric bicycles expected to be sold over the next 2-4 years, it’s a perfect time to be innovating in the bike security category,” said Kim Kelley, the president and CEO of Hampton Products.
The BenjiLock is powered by rechargeable lithium batteries that can provide up to 6 months of power on a single USB charge.
Available in matte black, the lock comes with a USB charging cable that sells for $79.00.
