Tile is a fabulous tracking device to find your lost items. However, it does not have a replaceable battery. The battery on the Tile is designed to last at least one year, and it is guaranteed to do so. After that one year is up, you cannot open your Tile and put a new battery into it. However, they do have a solution called “reTile.” reTile allows you to replace your Tile for a discounted price.
How much is it to reTile? Currently, the “reTile” price for the Tile Original is $12, and the Tile Slim is $21. Pretty affordable!
The nice thing about this is that if they update your Tile model, you’ll receive the newer version of your Tile model. I am a fan of that!
Also, Tile will recycle 99.9% of your old Tile. They will send you a pre-paid envelope for you to send back your old Tile for recycling if you choose to do so. The only part of the Tile is isn’t recyclable is the battery.
So how do you know when your Tile year is up? Do you have to set a calendar reminder? Thankfully, no. You’ll actually receive an in-app notification along with an email 11 months after your Tile was activated.
If you haven’t purchased your Tile yet, Sprint has them available at an affordable price. Check it out!
