I ordered two of these. I really liked the Android phone interface, however two things I didn't like were: 1) the "fob" that attaches to key must be charged via USB cord, there is no replaceable battery. 2) Five minutes after a "full" charge, my Droid RAZR told me the battery needed charging. More than once. I never opend the second one, just returned both.
Too bad, I really wanted it to work.
Update Feb 11th. I ordered another as I have several people that want one if the charge will hold on new device. Will update again after a few days.
After two more days: I still like what it does, the dongle seems to have a seven to eight HOUR charge cycle, hardly as advertised as seven DAYS.
After a week. Same results. About seven hours continuous use. If they made the fob with a replaceable battery, THEN it would be worthwhile.

Frequent online shopper, seldom online reviewer here. I got two of these tags. One for my wallet and one for my keys. I am really happy with the product, and so is my wife. I can't tell you how many times we have been on our way out the door and then we have to take 5 or 10 minutes because I threw my wallet down somewhere and don't know where it is.

Really this is two products in one. A locator and a separation alarm. Both of these are applicable to me because I frequently leave my wallet in the car, but hardly ever my phone. I also have occasionally left it in the shopping cart, or on the airplane, or other places when this thing could potentially save me hundreds of dollars.

I have tested it a few times and it has always worked. There are also nice options to turn the alarm off if you are in a situation when you know you are going to leave your keys behind, or turn the ringing off all together.

Two things to be aware of:
1) The tag is fairly thick. I have one in my wallet, but I do not generally keep my wallet in my back pocket. Sitting on this thing would be uncomfortable.
2) I don't have the one day battery drain problem that another reviewer mentioned, but I now have gotten into the habit of charging the two tags I have on alternating nights.

If you're forgetful like me, especially in new environments like an unfamiliar city or hotel, Cobra Tag is a lifesaver. On a recent business trip the Cobra Tag app on my Android phone went off in the lobby just before I checked out - alerting me that yet again my keys had been left behind. (Bonus - I'd also left my toiletry bag). I haven't had an issue with battery life but then I added the micro usb charger to my charging station and "plug" my keys in most nights.

If you loose your keys habitually, one of the best things about the Cobra Tag is that it helps break old habits and develop new ones. Alerts for lost keys are great. Just as beneficial has been "plugging" my key chain in at night so it sits next to my phone. Now if they only made one small enough for my wallet!

Great idea here from Cobra, but the battery only lasts a day, maybe 2 if you are lucky. Charging it every night is real hassle and heaven forbid you actually forget to charge it once and that is the time you lose your keys. Not very reliable or useful until Cobra improves the battery. Also, the app will not work on Blackberry Bold's or Curves, FYI

Battery is supposed to last for 7 days, only lasts for one. Have to recharge fully every day and it takes a long time!

The whole thing becomes dysfunctional.

It was difficult to pair and connect. Had to call Cobra and this device is so new they were confused. 30 feet is not long enough in a larger house if you are trying to find keys or cell phone. Once out of reach you have to walk about clicking and clicking to get a response. Being near a microwave oven makes mine go off when my wife heats her coffee. Batt life seems to be two days, once I stopped playing with it. The tag batt died and once recharged I could not pair. Finally got through to a good tech (I think the head of the dept) and we got it working after fooling with it for two hours. To weeks now and everything is OK. It will go off randomly when the two are just ten feet apart. I think they miss each other. Other bluetooth devices don't seem to be bothered by it (BlueAnt or Plantronics Earbud).

I have been using this on my keys for a few months now and I have to say I love it! The only hangup for me is remembering to keep it charged and keeping the app open on my phone (Android). It's got a very solid feel and has somehow remained scratch free after these months of use in and out of my purse, etc.

The range is good and when I my keys get too far from my phone, my phone starts to alarm me (when I remember to open the app). And from my phone, I can call/locate my keys (when I remember to charge the tag). Overall, a really useful product when I am organized enough to use it properly. I do think the price is a bit steep, however, and will likely wait for it to come down a bit before adding a second device.

It's useless for what it is supposed to be used for. I've had it for about two weeks. I bought it to avoid loosing the phone in the gym while working out.
This is the list of problems so far:

First, the Tag sound is so highly pitched it is difficult to hear and even more difficult to locate where the sound is comming from (And I have VERY good hearing). No way of changing the sound on the tag.

It wreaks havoc on my Samsung Galaxy S3 sound volume and vibration. Sometimes it starts to vibrate when I'm on a call, with the tag in my pockets. When the Tag is connected, sometimes the ringing sound of incomming calls sound at full volume, even when the phone is set at medium. Very annoying.

The battery is supposed to last 7 days when connected, but it really lasts half as long. If you disconnect the tag by means of the app, the tag battery dies within 12 hours, even when fully charged.

Right now the tag is charging and 10 inches appart from my Samsung Galaxy S3. The app shows it is connected but I can't make the tag sound when pressing the app button, nor does the S3 sound when I press the tag's button.
The app is horrible formatted, shows wrong information, you can't change the language on it and hasn't been updated in the past 12 months.

In spanish (there is no language setting) you have to put the phone horizontally to see the battery charge, but the call button disappears and you can't scroll down. When you put the phone vertically, you can access the call button but the charge percentage disappears from the screen and you can't scroll sideways.

While I was writing this review, the Tags red light changed to blue, meaning it is fully charged. The app however still shows it to be at 30%. Still no way of making each other ring.

Yesterday I went near the microwave oven while it was on and both the tag and my S3 began to ring: they lost connection.

I'm returning this piece of garbage.
