The AirTag is a powerful tracking device, but it won’t easily fit into one of your most valuable possessions: your wallet. Over at Macworld, Glenn Fleishman reviewed the Chipolo Card Spot, a credit-card-sized tracker that works with Apple’s Find My network, which uses nearby Apple devices to relay signals from compatible trackers.
The $35 Chipolo Card Spot sounds like a great solution to fears of lost or stolen wallets, but there are some caveats. Although it’s the size of a credit card, it’s as thick as three cards. It doesn’t support the Ultra Wideband precision finding that enables the Find My app to point you in the right direction with an exact distance. Also—most disappointingly—the battery isn’t replaceable and has an estimated life of only 2 years. Chipolo offers a 50%-off replacement discount and recycles the dead unit, but that’s still annoying and wasteful. Currently, the Chipolo Card Spot is sold out and not shipping until May.
