Chipolo announced last week its upcoming wallet finder at CES 2022, the CARD Spot, will be powered by Apple’s Find My network, essentially fitting an AirTag into your wallet.
The CARD Spot is IPX5 water resistant and has battery life of up to two years, and has dimensions of 85.1 mm x 53.6 mm x 2.4 mm, nearly as thin as your bank card, to fit into any wallet.
Chipolo says their renewal program for registered users means after two years, they will receive an email with a 50% discount towards a new product. Once purchased, they’ll get a pre-paid envelope to send back their old Chipolo item for recycling.
Users will be able to located the CARD Spot using Apple’s Find My app, plus also play a 105db sound from the card, and also activate Lost Mode, which shows a custom message for those that find your wallet, to allow them to return it.
“We always listen to our customers and aim to bring new, innovative products to market. That is why, following the success of the Chipolo ONE Spot, we decided to introduce a wallet finder that also works exclusively with the Apple Find My network,” said Primož Zelenšek, CEO of Chipolo to iPhone in Canada. “Keeping our clients’ valuables safe is what we do best and it felt like a natural choice for us to introduce a smart card that can be slipped into almost any wallet whilst keeping it safe with the backing of Apple’s powerful and secure finding network.”
