Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose the Chipolo CARD TV remote finder?

The Chipolo CARD is a credit-card thin
tracker that connects to the free Chipolo app on your phone. You can
ring the CARD remote tracker from your phone or use the remote finder
to ring your misplaced phone. The Bluetooth tracker also offers
additional features such as the Out of Range Alerts and the user
sharing function, all without any additional fees or monthly

What is the connection range of the Chipolo CARD remote tracker?

The remote finder connects directly to
the Bluetooth signal on your phone and can stay connected for up to
200ft / 60 meters outside, where there are no obstacles like walls.
Indoors, the range is slightly decreased, but will remain stable for
up to 150 feet / 45 meters.

How long does the battery last?

The battery on the Chipolo CARD TV
remote tracker lasts for up to a year. You will get a notification in
the Chipolo app when the battery is almost empty so that you can
replace the TV remote tracker in time. The battery is a custom model
created to keep the remote finder as thin as possible and it is not
replaceable or rechargeable. When the battery runs out, the Bluetooth
finder is eligible for the Chipolo Recycle & Renew program, where
you can buy a new finder with a 50% discount and send your old one
back to us for recycling free of charge.

Is my phone compatible with Chipolo trackers?

Chipolo CARD tracker connects to the
Chipolo app, which works both with Android and iOS devices. Your
phone must have at least Bluetooth 4.0 and Android 7 or later or iOS
13 or later. The list of supported devices is available on

How is the Chipolo CARD Bluetooth tracker different from a GPS tracker?

The main difference between the two is
their connection range. Bluetooth finders use your phone’s
Bluetooth signal to connect and can stay connected for up to 200ft /
60 m. When this connection is lost, the last known location of your
TV remote finder will be displayed on a map in the Chipolo app until
they reconnect. GPS trackers use external third-party systems to stay
connected and can show the real-time location of the tracking tag at
any distance.

They also differ in their battery life;
Bluetooth trackers have longer battery life since they use less
technology and power to stay connected. The battery life of a good
Bluetooth finder will last at least over a year. The battery on a GPS
tracker will usually last between 1 week and 1 month.

Most Bluetooth trackers also offer all
their features without any additional fees, while GPS trackers
usually have a monthly subscription.

What is your return and refund policy?

You can return your Chipolo order for a
full refund within 30 days of receiving the order. The products must
be returned in good condition and working to comply with the Chipolo
refund policy. When your order is returned, you will receive a full
refund to the original payment method.

Quickly find a lost Roku remote with this trick

Sarah Tew/CNET

Losing a remote can be a real pain. All you want to do is sit down on the couch and watch the game, your favorite TV show or movie, but instead you need to search for that slim piece of plastic. Is it in the sofa pillows or cushions? What about under the furniture? Better check those back pockets just in case, too. 

Before you tear apart your home searching, you’ll want to try this trick to locate your Roku remote. A few Roku streaming devices come with a remote-finder function built in. Here’s how it works.

How to find a lost Roku remote

The only Roku remote that offers a voice-activated remote control finder is the $30 Voice Remote Pro. It can be purchased separately and paired with any current Roku device, or you can get it bundled with the Roku Streaming Stick 4K in the Roku Streaming Stick 4K Plus package. The Roku Ultra also comes with a remote finder feature, but you’ll need to press a button on the body of the Ultra device to activate it. 

If you’re not sure if you have a compatible remote, you can check by flipping it over and looking at its back. If you see a small speaker grille on the top half of your remote, the remote finder function will work. 

You can check if you have a Voice Remote Pro by finding out how your remote charges. The Voice Remote Pro is the only remote in the Roku lineup with an internal rechargeable battery. There should be a slot for the Micro-USB charging cable at the very bottom of the remote, right underneath the purple Roku fabric tag. If you have that, then all you have to do is say, “Hey, Roku, find my remote,” and the remote will automatically turn on your TV and start emitting a high-pitched beeping sound so you can locate it. Once you find your remote, you can press any button to stop the sound.

If your remote has a speaker grille, but runs on regular disposable batteries, you’ll need to head over to the Roku device itself. The Roku Ultra has a special remote finder button on the right-hand side of the box. When you press this, the remote will emit a sound until you locate it and press any button.

Keep in mind that if the remote has died or is out of range of a Wi-Fi signal, the Roku will not be able to locate it.

How to use the Roku App to find your remote

Roku also provides applications for iOS and Android that will turn your mobile devices into fully functioning Wi-Fi remotes. Upon opening the app, navigate to the devices tab, which will bring up a list of all of the Roku devices in your house. Tap on the device you want to control and the app will connect to it. You’ll then be able to tap on the “remote” function for that device, which will bring up a full-screen remote control. From here, you should have full control over your Roku. 

To use the Roku App to find your remote, just tap the microphone button and say, “Hey, Roku, find my remote.” This will automatically trigger the beeping sound from your compatible remote. Once again, you can press any button on the remote when you find it to make the sound stop.

How to change the remote finder sound

Compatible Roku remotes can play different sounds for the remote finder function.

To change the sound, go to Settings > Remote and select Change remote finder sound. To preview the sound you selected, click Preview remote finder sound.

Still can’t find it? Try one of these alternatives

If you can’t seem to locate your Roku remote, you’re not totally out of luck. Roku offers replacement remotes, but the $30 Voice Remote Pro is the only one the company sells with a remote finder feature. 

The Roku Voice Remote costs $20 and lets you turn your TV on and off and control the volume with the remote. You can also use the microphone button to interact with the Roku interface using your voice. But it lacks a speaker, making it incompatible with the remote finding feature. 

If you opt for the $15 Simple Remote, you’ll still need your TV remote nearby. The Simple Remote does not give you any control over your TV itself and instead is a supplemental remote that works only within the Roku operating system. This remote is also speaker-free, which means you’d better be prepared to dig through your couch cushions to find it.

The finderscope is a small telescope attached to the tube of a large telescope to aim at an object of interest. The finderscope usually has a low magnification and a wide field of view, allowing you to see a much larger area of ​​the sky than through the main telescope. As soon as you place an object on the finder’s cross hairs, it will immediately appear in the telescope’s eyepiece.

However, in order for the finder to perform its functions, first of all it must be aligned parallel to the main one, so that they are aimed at the same point at the same time. This operation is usually performed while it is still light outside. The telescope is equipped with a long-focus eyepiece that gives a low magnification. The telescope tube is aimed at a remote (at least half a kilometer) object – a radio tower, a tree, a house. Most likely, in this case, if you look into the finder, its crosshairs will not coincide with the desired object a little, therefore, by adjusting the screws of the finderhair, the crosshairs coincide with the object. Next, you need to check if the object has accidentally shifted in the eyepiece of the telescope. If not, the operation is completed, otherwise it must be repeated, paying attention to fixing the pipe on the object. After the distant object is simultaneously in the center of the field of view of the finder and telescope, the finder is set up and ready to go. Finder alignment checks are always required at the start of observations.

The finderscope, like the telescope, has the ability to adjust the sharpness. Since most often, the finder is a small refractor, it flips the image. This can be confusing for first-time observers, but quickly becomes irrelevant. The designation of the finder type “6×30” means that its magnification is 6 times, and the diameter of the objective is 30 mm. Of course, the larger the aperture of the finder, the fainter stars and objects can be seen through it. If the power of the finder is not enough to see the desired object in it, you can point the crosshairs at the intended area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe sky and continue to view it by looking through the eyepiece of the telescope and moving it slightly.

Strange as it may seem, it is best to work with the finder with both eyes open. Before looking through the finder scope, look with your naked eyes at a star near the object you want (or the object itself, if it is bright enough). Release the brakes on both axes of the mount to allow free movement of the telescope tube. While looking along the finder scope (not yet through it), roughly aim the telescope at the star. Now look through the finder with one eye and keep looking at the star with the other. This will make it easier to place the star on the finder’s cross hairs, although this takes some practice. When the star is on the crosshairs, fix the mount axis and adjust its position using the fine motion knobs. Be aware of the flipped image in the finder.

A relatively new type of finderscope, called a collimator or “red dot”, is a device that does not magnify the image and shows a red dot or other target pattern in the center of the field of view. The dot is illuminated by an LED and appears to be projected onto the sky, showing exactly where the telescope is pointing (after proper alignment, of course). Such a finder can only find objects visible to the naked eye, but has the advantage of not flipping or reflecting the image and has a very wide field of view, making searching for an object intuitive.

Some amateur astronomers take advantage of both types of finders by mounting them on opposite sides of the telescope tube.
