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.
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 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!
The whole thing becomes dysfunctional.
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.
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.
