THE SMART KEY FOB THAT MEANS YOU’LL NEVER LOSE WHAT­EVER YOU AT­TACH IT TO

DE­SIGN

Chipolo Plus is about the size of a 20c coin but twice the thick­ness, and comes in a range of seven colours. It’s ideal for keys or purses, but too thick for wal­lets. Like Tile Slim it has a oneyear bat­tery life and then needs to be re­placed.

FEA­TURES

Ac­ti­vate your Chipolo Plus from the app to find your keys, or squeeze it twice and it’ll make your phone ring. Its min­i­mal app has many of the same fea­tures as Tile Slim’s, and the Chipolo com­mu­nity helps group-find miss­ing items.

PER­FOR­MANCE

In many ways, Chipolo Plus is only as good as Blue­tooth al­lows it to be. Like Tile Slim, in­doors you might get 10m, out­doors it reaches 60m. You will ap­pre­ci­ate its loud bleeper, though. It’s nice and clear com­pared to Tile Slim’s war­bling trill.

USABILITY

There’s noth­ing tricky about get­ting Chipolo Plus up and run­ning and most of its fea­tures are easy to use and ac­ces­si­ble. One neat ad­di­tion is that you can name reg­u­lar map lo­ca­tions, so the app will tell you that it last saw your keys at ‘Home’.
