Chipolo Launches the Chipolo Plus, the World's Loudest Bluetooth Tracker

New Internet of Things tag is the perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer to ensure friends and family never losing anything again

TRBOVLJE, SLOVENIA--(Marketwired - Nov 9, 2016) - According to esure home insurance, people spend an average of ten minutes per day or three days per year searching for items they have lost or misplaced. To minimize the time consumers waste looking for misplaced items, Chipolo, the startup building a global lost and found community, announces the launch of Chipolo Plus, the world's loudest Bluetooth tracker. Perfect as a holiday gift or stocking stuffer for clients, coworkers, busy parents, on-the-go teens and travel enthusiasts, Chipolo Plus makes finding your wallet, luggage, keys, phone and other items easier than ever.

Chipolo Plus pairs with the Chipolo app, available on iOS and Android, to walk you through a very simple setup process. Attach, drop or stick the small, battery-powered and Bluetooth-enabled tag onto the things that you care about most. When you can't find the item your Chipolo is synced with and you are within 200 feet of it, you can enable the app to sound a 100 decibel melody to guide you to the missing item. If your misplaced items are out of Bluetooth range, you can check the Last Known Location feature on the app for a map that shows you where it was last seen. Additionally, you can mark your Chipolo as lost and as soon as someone with the Chipolo app comes within range of your misplaced item, you will receive an email with its new location. If you misplace your phone, you can double press any of your Chipolo Plus tags and your phone will ring -- even if it's on silent.

"At Chipolo we believe that everything in the world should have the power of smart location, so that's why we are creating the world's largest lost and found community," says Tadej Jevsevar, CEO and co-founder of Chipolo. "Because Chipolo Plus is louder than market rivals and boasts a Bluetooth range greater than our competitors, our product ensures that finding misplaced items has never been easier. Currently, Chipolo is helping users find 50,000 lost items daily."

Chipolo Plus offers seven bright colors options to choose from and is now waterproof. This iteration of Chipolo has a non-replaceable battery that lasts 12 months. After that time, users will receive an offer to replace their Chipolo Plus with a new one for 50 percent of the original price.

"We all have that one friend, coworker or family member that is always losing things or constantly late because they couldn't find their wallet or remember the last place they put their keys. This holiday season you can help put that to an end by gifting Chipolo Plus. You'll not only save the person time and money, but you'll also be providing them peace of mind knowing that they have the technology behind them to track down their personal items within seconds," said Jevsevar.
