The biggest difference between Chipolo and Pebblebee key trackers here is the battery. Pebblebee finders have a rechargeable battery, while Chipolo ONE Point finders use a standard coin cell replaceable battery (CR2032), which you can buy in most stores.

Regardless of the type of battery, the battery life on both finders is the same.

The biggest difference between Chipolo CARD Point and Pebblebee Card for Android is the battery type.

With Chipolo Point wallet tracker you get a finder with a long, 2-year battery life and a convenient Recycle and Renew program. You send your CARD Point finder back to us after 2 years for free recycling and buy a new one with a 50% discount.

With the Pebblebee Card, you get a rechargeable battery that will last up to 18 months on a single charge. The downside is it cannot be charged with your standard USB-C cable and instead uses a special magnetic cable you'll need to keep track of; if you tend to misplace things, this might be an issue.

Product features

Colors

Perhaps the biggest difference between the two is their colors. Pebblebee is available in black, while Chipolo Point finders are available in off white. So if you prefer one over the other, this might be the deciding factor.

Design

Chipolo trackers prioritize clean lines and an understated design that blends seamlessly with your belongings and doesn’t draw unnecessary attention.

Pebblebee finders have a more pronounced, tech-inspired look, appealing to users who want their tracker to make a subtle statement.

Price

Both are similarly priced when it comes to individual finders or multipacks, so no matter which one you pick, the end cost should be similar.

But before you order, do check where your new Android tracking tag will be shipped from.

With Chipolo, all orders for the EU, UK and US are shipped from regional warehouses, so orders from these regions won’t have any additional costs from import taxes.

With Pebblebee, all orders are shipped from the US, so if you’re shipping your order to somewhere outside the US, check with your national customs authorities for more information.

The companies

Chipolo is a European company that has kept its headquarters in their small hometown of Trbovlje, Slovenia.

All Chipolo products are designed and manufactured in Europe, at the same location as their offices.

The Chipolo team

Pebblebee is a US-based company from Seattle, Washington. While their products are sold from the US, they are manufactured in China.

In the end, which Find My Device-enabled tracker you get will probably come down to personal preferences, since the differences in products are minimal.
