What is it?
As a car enthusiast and semi-expert automotive product reviewer, I am always on the lookout for the latest gadgets to help keep our beloved vehicles safe. The Faraday Pouch for Car Keys, a 2-Pack Faraday Bag designed for car key signal blocking, is one such product that has caught my attention.
Amidst the growing concern of key cloning, this little pouch serves as a deterrent by effectively blocking signals from keyless entry systems. While I've had a few instances where the car started even with the key inside the pouch, I believe it was due to not closing it properly. Overall, the Faraday Pouch provides a sense of security and peace of mind.
The Faraday Pouch is compact, making it convenient to carry around. It can accommodate a single key, which is a blessing for those who dislike bulky alternatives. However, the compact design also means that larger key fobs or multiple keys may result in a snug fit. In my case, I would have opted for the larger model had I known my VW key with an attachment would be a tight squeeze.
While these pouches do offer protection, it is essential to remember that they may not be 100% foolproof in blocking signals. In some cases, the signal can leak and affect wing mirrors even with the key securely tucked away. Nevertheless, the pouches prove their effectiveness when the engine fails to start with the key inside.
Made from good quality materials, these pouches have demonstrated durability, lasting for months without any signs of wear and tear. The key ring attachment is a convenient feature, although it can break off from the pouch after prolonged use. This minor issue, however, does not diminish the pouch's effectiveness in protecting the car key.
In conclusion, the Faraday Pouch for Car Keys is a valuable investment for anyone with a keyless entry system. Just remember to fully close the pouch to ensure its effectiveness and take the key out before attempting to start your vehicle. With the rise of key cloning, these pouches are an essential accessory to protect your car from would-be thieves.
