Finding my valuables has become so much easier since having my Chipolo tracker. As a mom, I’m always feeling scatterbrained and I’m always busy doing a million things. I can never remember where my keys, purse, phone or many other things are. Chipolo has made losing my valuables a thing of the past!
I can connect my Chipolos to an app on my phone. Whenever I lose a valuable, I press the icon for it on my phone and it will play a ring tone on the corresponding Chipolo to help me find it. There’s also a map showing the location of the Chipolo.
So what if I lose my phone? I simply click the Chipolo twice and it will ring my phone even if it’s on SILENT. 😍 Which, if you’re like me happens way more than it should.
Also, If I lose one of my valuables that has the Chipolo on it and someone else who has the app goes by that item, I get an email telling me the location of the item! I think that is so brilliant.
So what do I not love about the Chipolo? I only have two qualms so far.
- The Chipolo works through Bluetooth. So if you are out of range, you will not be able to connect to the Chipolo through your phone. The max range for the Chipolo to ring your item is 200 yards. But this decreases with walls, etc. I have only run into this issue once where I went to ring my Chipolo and because it was in the basement it didn’t ring. I figure it’s hard for a lot of cell phones to have service in a basement so it makes sense that it wouldn’t ring.
- One of the two styles of Chipolos has a non-replaceable battery. There is the Chipolo Classic and the Chipolo Plus. I have the Chipolo Plus, which has a non-replaceable battery. The battery is supposed to last 12 months. I will have to see how long mine lasts. The reason that the battery is non-replaceable is that with technology ever-changing they’d like you to change out Chipolos. There is a recycling program where you can return your old Chipolo to the company and they will give you up to a 50% discount off a new Chipolo. The price of one Chipolo is $24.99 so you wouldn’t be paying much at all to replace one. You also get a bigger price reduction by buying Chipolos in bulk.
All-in-all, the Chipolo is pretty great! It has saved my sanity more times than I can count. I love that it’s water resistant. It comes in 7 different colors. I have two Chipolos. One of them is in the color “Rose Quartz” and the other one is in “Pearl White”. They look so good with my Diaper bag and keys. I think it’s great that the ringtone is nice and loud too. It’s up to 100db which if you read this chart compares it to a power lawn mower’s noise level.
