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 each use a different battery type that helps ensure the tracker’s best performance:
Chipolo Classic – replaceable battery
Chipolo CLASSIC is the only model of Chipolo 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 commonly used coin cell type CR2025 that is widely available in most shops that also sell AA batteries and on Amazon. The exact cost depends on your location, but generally speaking, the cost of the replacement battery is usually between $1 - $3 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 water-resistant up to IPX5 standards. It 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. The tracker is also sealed shut, to ensure water resistance up to IPX5 standards.
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 you use. For more information on your specific Chipolo tracker or additional information on the batteries they use, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
