SmartThings Find will warn you if a Galaxy SmartTag is following you

Beating Apple AirTags to the punch, Samsung launched its Galaxy SmartTags last year to offer an alternative to the popular Tile trackers.

Bluetti EP500 Pro 5.1kWh Power Station – home power backup on wheels

That said, it wouldn't be for financial or environmental reasons like the others.
