Below you’ll find some basic information on the battery type inside your Chipolo and what to do when that battery runs out.
Chipolo Bluetooth trackers use different battery types to help ensure each tracker’s best performance:
Chipolo ONE • 2-year replaceable battery
Chipolo ONE is the latest model of the Chipolo key finder with a replaceable battery.
The battery on a Chipolo ONE will last up to 2 years (depending on how much you use your Chipolo).
The battery inside is a regular coin-shaped battery type CR2032 that you can find in most shops that sell AA batteries and online (for example on Amazon)
The cost depends on your location and what battery brand you pick, but generally speaking, the cost of the replacement battery should be around $1 - $5 USD.
Chipolo CLASSIC • 9-month replaceable battery
Chipolo CLASSIC is the previous Chipolo key finder model with a replaceable battery.
The battery on a Chipolo CLASSIC should last about 9 months (depending on how much you use your Chipolo).
The battery is a widely used coin-shaped battery (model CR2025) that is available in most shops that also sell AA batteries and in many online shops.
The replacement battery for the Chipolo CLASSIC would usually cost between $1 - $5 USD.
Chipolo PLUS and CARD • nonreplaceable battery
The battery on a Chipolo PLUS should last about 12 months (depending on how much you use your Chipolo).
The battery on a Chipolo CARD should last about 12 months (depending on how much you use your Chipolo).
Chipolo PLUS uses a CR2032 battery and is sealed shut to prevent water damage during battery changes and because the tracker can’t be opened, the battery can’t be replaced once it runs out.
Chipolo CARD is a wallet finder and was designed to fit in your wallet as seamlessly as a credit card would. To keep the tracker as thin as possible, it is powered by a custom lithium-ion battery that is not available for purchase.
Both the PLUS and CARD model can be repurchased with a 50% discount on the Chipolo website before their battery runs out, to always keep your belongings protected.
The battery options depend on the model of Chipolo and how it is integrated with the partner product.
