Many of the company’s products focus on various types of surveillance, security, and even spy-type solutions. Mini Gadgets currently operates their manufacturing warehouse in Marietta, Georgia, which is located on the outskirts of Atlanta. The BIO BOX biometric personal safe by mini gadgets is an extremely small personal safe, that employs very popular biometric technology.
Dimensions and Capacity
The BIO BOX personal safe lives up to its company’s name, and reputation, for distributing small but quality products. With outer dimensions of only 7.25 inches wide, 10.75 inches long, and 2 inches deep, it can easily hold a number of small personal items including handguns, jewelry, small weapons, pharmaceuticals, important documents, cash, and other small personal valuables.
This safe would be excellent for travel, or storing in your vehicle to keep personal items safe from sticky fingers. I could also see it’s usefulness for storing personal items in an office or other workspace, because it is so small it is easily kept in a drawer to keep valuables safe while away from your desk. This safe would also do justice to simply keeping dangerous items away from small children.

Biometric Fingerprint Technology
The BIO BOX personal safe employs fingerprint technology which aims to provide prompt access to the contents inside. This safe can only store 6 unique fingerprints, which is considerably low compared to similar products in other brands. The safe uses proprietary fingerprint technology to read unique prints, and opens within one second of fingerprint recognition. The aim of this technology is to provide instant access to contents inside, and BIO BOX does a good job with this task.
Construction and Back-Up Features
The safe is powered by 4-AA batteries, which are not included, and the fingerprints will stay stored if the battery dies, and will not require reprogramming after regaining power. The safe is endorsed by the NRA firearms instruction safety program. A back-up key is included in case of power failure, or a lapse in technology. However, there is no option for a key-code, a feature that many other small biometric safes provide. The outer perimeter of the safe is heavily coated, and black in color. This heavy coating is what deters wear on the outside of the safe. The inside of the safe is lined by protective padding, which will be sufficient to protect handguns, jewelry, and other valuables while in the safe.
