If you are a fan of popular key-finders the Tile Pro and Tile Mate, you’ll be excited to know that the company has added significant updates to the two products that you’ll certainly enjoy. Finally listening to its users (including me) who have wanted replaceable batteries for their Tile for years, the company announced this week that their two newer products (Tile Pro and Tile Mate) both will feature replaceable coin cell batteries. This is MUCH more convenient for a user to purchase and be able to just swap out a battery, rather than have to buy a completely new…

Just announced, we already have a review!
