I bought a few of these and love them, but one just ran out of battery so I took it apart. I was pleasantly surprised to find a CR2032 button cell, I buy my coin batteries in bulk from Amazon.
No soldering was involved.
The speaker is located to the right of the key ring hole, if the Tile's speaker fails to work after taking it apart just push in( on the speaker side). I suppose some 30awg wire can be soldered to hardwire the speaker contacts, It wasn't necessary, but it's an option if you can't get the speaker contacts to line up again.
I'm just going to purchase one of those leather cases so I won't need to reseal the Tile completely.
I only used a very small dab of glue on each corner so it'll be easier to open up again for next time.
The Tile system uses bluetooth to communicate between the Tile and the app on your phone. This limits the range of the device and provides only proximity detection. To resolve this problem, when locating a Tile device, the device plays a sound. Since the Tile device is not rechargeable and does not take a replacement battery, some thought had to be put into how to extend the battery life. A constant connection between the phone app and the tile is infeasible to maintain over the course of a year on a single battery.
The unfortunate end result is that the Tile system only irregularly connects to and can locate Tile devices. Standing in my kitchen with my phone in one hand and the Tile device in the other, the bluetooth did not connect and would not locate the Tile device.
At a larger scale, the GPS location of a Tile device is imprecise as well. As a test, I ensured that a Tile was connected to my phone via BlueTooth. I then left the tile in my car in long-term parking at the airport while I was gone on a trip. When I returned, I attempted to use the last known position function. The end result? The position wasn't close. If I had, say, dropped my keys the functionality would have been useless.
If the Tile were a one-time purchase, this inexact location system would be helpful. But as an expensive, annual subscription for new devices? It is nearly useless in practice.
I find this whole system ridiculous because there is no easy way to replace these batteries. I understand that batteries run out but how about making it easy for the consumer to change them INSTEAD OF HITTING THEM AGAIN WITH ANOTHER CHARGE. I will never buy another one of these again. You can’t tell me there’s no way of making a tile that can be changed easily. We put a man on the moon, people. Figure it out.
Dropped my keys on a bike ride home, didn't find out till I got there. Went to check Tile, and IT SAID MY TILE WAS LAST SEEN 4 DAYS AGO. The one time I needed it, it failed. I chose Tile because I thought it was reliable, and attached it to my BMW and mail key, which together cost $200+ to replace!
I wrote this review in the 30 minutes I've that Tile Support has been "helping me" on chat.

Two stars because it sometimes did what it claimed. Just not when it was needed.
The only things I don’t like are that because of the non replaceable battery, you have to replace the tile when the battery runs out ( about 12-15minths) and more annoying is that the app keeps telling you that the tile will soon need replacing, from about 10 months!! My tiles have all lasted WAY OVER a year but I guess you don’t want to leave it too long and find out, too late, that there’s no signal.
