You're probably reading this because you are thinking about getting yourself a Chipolo, but cannot decide between the two models we are offering on the web store. That's ok, we're here to help.
So, here's a short answer: Chipolo Plus is water resistant and works on 1-year-lasting battery with renewal program. Chipolo Classic has a replaceable standard battery but is not waterproof. They both cost $24.99.
Basically, you are choosing between replaceable battery and water-resistance. Now, let's take a more detailed look in both models.
Chipolo Classic is improved version of our initial version of the product. It is 5 mm thick (like the size of a coin). It has a button which can be used to find your phone.
The Classic model produces a sound of 92 dB. This is less then Chipolo Plus, but still more than competitors’ volume. The loudness is, of course, one of the most important features of a Bluetooth Tracker, since in most cases you find your misplaced items by sound.
Chipolo Classic works on a standard replaceable battery which lasts up to 6 months. You’ll get an extra one in a box, so you will be covered for a whole year.
Since housing of Chipolo Classic is designed to be opened in order to replace the battery, this model is not water resistant.
This model is available in black and white color.
This is our brand new version of a Bluetooth Tracker that was developed with our customer feedbacks in mind. Their desire for a louder and water-resistant tracker lead us to design Chipolo Plus.
With 100 dB sound, it is the loudest Bluetooth Tracker on the market. Finding misplaced items that are covered under piles of clothes, hiding in a drawer or backpack has never been easier.
Chipolo Plus is slightly bigger than the Classic, but still conveniently small enough to be attached to keys, dropped inside your wallet or stuck to the remote control.
The battery lifetime is 1 year. After that, you can participate in our renewal program. It enables you to recycle your Chipolo and upgrade it to the latest version with 50% discount.
The housing of Chipolo Plus is sealed, which makes it water resistant. This enables you to use it on your umbrella, backpack, bike or maybe even your pet (if you think that the range of Bluetooth can be enough to track it). It also has a button which can be used to find your phone.
Chipolo Plus is available in seven beautiful colors which are chosen with latest trends in mind. They will look so good with your personal belongings that people will think it's actually a fashion accessory.
Which one to choose?
If you value the possibility of having the battery replaced, then go with Chipolo Classic.
But if water resistance, loudness and an option to yearly upgrades to the latest model are more important to you, then definitely go with Chipolo Plus!
