Nothing is Lost
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
After months of research and countless whiteboard sessions, we took our paper sketches and started designing, programming and constructing the first Chipolo prototype. We used the latest high quality electronic components to create the longest range of any Bluetooth finder. After various attempts and numerous improvements, we successfully completed the final, working and fully-tested hardware prototype. In the meantime, our designers created the casing. Chipolo's optimized design is produced with carefully selected materials and designed with delicate precision. Finally, after plenty of persistent team work, the beautiful design, state-of-the-art electronic components, and user-friendly software all fit together like a puzzle.

I changed the battery. It lasted two days and no sign of life again. So I changed the battery for another new one. It worked for 3 days then it stopped again.
I followed all the instructions to reset/pair again and all that but nada. Emails are back saying my chipolo has lost communication for over 48 hrs. And now it's dead again. This is the worst tech-buy in a while. Downgraded to one star and chipolo will be thrown away. What a waste of time and I even bought a pack of new batteries for it. Unreliable, can't trust this thing. Buyer be aware.
Battery inside the chipolo now lasts about 2 hrs. That's it.
Chipolo on the table, phone next to it. After 2 hrs the app doesn't see the chipolo, I test the battery (brand new when I put in) and it's now completely depleted.
The device is a good idea…a small circular disk that attaches to your keys. Shake the disk on the keys and it lights up your cellphone and set an alert ringing. You’ve just found your cell phone. Separately, open the app, touch the right place (see the picture) and it sets the Chipolo ringing. If lost, you’ve just found your keys. With one device and one app, you’ve now managed to help yourself if you tend to lose thing. My wife, for whom the Chipolo was meant, loses keys and cellphone multiple times a day.
The first Chipolo device that I got paired with the phone but then the app told me the chip was already installed on someone else’s phone. I called the help line and got the helpdesk on the phone. The gentleman I spoke to was very nice and he looked into his side of the software. I sent him a picture of the QR code inside the chip and he saw there was a problem (and that the installed battery was low, he asked me to swap for the spare) and promised a fix. The next day, maybe 8 hours later, the chip was free and paired with the phone. Unfortunately, it would not ‘wake’ the phone. I tried every test I could. I got it to work once…when the phone was unlocked and the app was open. I shook the chip and an alert showed up on the phone…once.
I called for help again and they shipped me a new Chipolo. They were very apologetic and said there was a bad batch that made its way through QA, which does happen. A couple of days later, DHL delivered a new Chipolo. This one paired fine with the phone. I also got it to pop an alert when I shook it…once. After that, whenever I shook the chip, it would chirp at me but that was it, whether the phone was unlocked, the app was live or whatever. On the flip side, when I opened the app and touched the spot, it did successfully cause the Chipolo to ring.
Now, this brings us back to that Einstein quote. The directions that it came with are very Apple-like. VERY simple, some drawn pictures to demo it but that’s about it. The letters were very small (needed to use reading glasses and could barely read them even with them. They told how to pair but not how to use. There were no troubleshooting instructions or even “Shake the Chipolo and look what your phone does” kind of instructions. Simple but too simple. If it worked perfectly, they would probably have been adequate.
On the app, it said that the Chipolo was close to the phone (see picture, they were right next to each other) but there didn’t seem to be directionality to it. I went to the website, looking for help and it mentioned to reset the Chipolo by opening it with a thumbnail, removing the battery and then replacing it. Tried that (its not easy to get it back into place in the chip and the cover back one) and got it to alert one more time, but that was all and only when the phone is on and the app is up. Which is NOT likely to be the case if I’m looking for my cellphone. On the flip side, the Chipolo chirps every time my wife picks up her keys. I’m sure there’s a sensitivity control but I’m not going to bother looking for it.
This is a lot of work. I’m three weeks into trying to get it to work and it’s still not working. Its possible that the Chipolo I’ve got has the same problem as the first one, part of the same batch, but I ordered a different color (Blue!) specifically trying for a different batch.
Simple as possible but no simpler. Here are my suggestions to the organization:
You’ve got a good idea…the execution needs work. The problem with the batch isn’t addressed on your website but may have saved me calling you at 2 AM your time when I went to go look it up.
The directions that you sent with the Chipolo are too simple…I get that the chip may be sold elsewhere. It might have been better if you’d simply included a note (in all the languages) saying to simply go to the website for directions. As it were, the type was too small, the font was non-serif and difficult to read and the questions I needed answered on it weren’t there. The pairing of the phone, app and chip did go well the second time.
Instead of a shake (or a tap or a knock against the side of the table) to get the chip to alert the phone (which doesn’t seem to work very well) have a button. If you’re worried about wasting batteries and sending false alerts to the phone, make it so you have to push three times in succession.
The app is also a little too simple. There seems to be no way to delete the first Chipolo that I got that was faulty and randomly, it seems to switch into map mode. I like that there is a map mode (“Look, I left my keys at the market…wait, how did I drive home?”) and I’d REALLY like it if you could access the map mode from online (say at the website.) But I would allow for more user control, better help functions and a diagnostic to look at the chip and tell you if it is functioning well and how much battery is left. From my conversation with the helpdesk, those readings are all available, just not to me.
Last, not least, I noticed that my iPhone was losing power. I usually keep the screen on half bright to conserve energy but it was draining a lot faster than usual. Then I realized I’d forgotten to turn off the app. Not a big deal but if I was trying to find my phone using the chip, it would be a very big deal. And if the opposite happened (couldn’t find my keys) I’m not sure if they would stay paired when I opened the app. In other words, not very useful.
If you are considering purchased the Chipolo, I would suggest waiting past the current generation. It is a very good idea (particularly if you tend to lose things, like my wife) and once the current problems are over, it will be very useful. Their customer service people are very nice and they responded well and reshipped the replacement Chipolo but my problems with that one more or less remained.
