How long does the Found battery last?
Unlike historical GPS trackers, the Found uses LTE-M for power-efficient location updates. This means that we are able to make the batteries last much longer than other trackers on the market. Battery duration is a little bit complicated since it is affected by a few factors. We will explain a little bit more in detail.
The two most important factors are :
- Which tracking mode is set.
- How much time your phone is in near proximity to your Found LTE.
- If you are indoors or outdoors.
Whenever in the Bluetooth range of your smartphone, the Found automatically uses BLE to transmit data - this saves battery because it keeps the device's GPS off. If you are further away, then a cellular connection needs to be attempted, and that uses more energy.
Please refer to the Found Tracking Modes for a detailed battery life depending on the tracking mode you want to use.
