Tintag Takes on Tile & TrackR Bravo with the First Rechargeable Item Tracker

CLUJ-NAPOCA, Romania, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For all of us busy-minded people that sometimes (several times... a day) lose sight of our important stuff, here's the newest, technology-improved gadget for lost items: Tintag. The best thing about it? You simply recharge it with its Home Base companion and it's ready to go for another 4 months. No need to replace its batteries or buy new devices when batteries run out, like other tracking devices (Tile or TrackR bravo) oblige.

The basic story is somehow the same: Tintag helps you locate at all times any object you've lost, big or small, near or far. The app on your phone allows you to easily determine the whereabouts of any items that have a Tintag attached, it works on iPhone AND Android phones.

BUT beyond the basic story, Tintag solves a few important problems that the others have missed, at least until now. 

The first rechargeable item tracking device

Battery use was until now perhaps the biggest complaint of item trackers users. Tile makes you buy another device, TrackR bravo or Duet makes you replace batteries.

"Making it work was quite a technical challenge since there were several parts we had to build ourselves from scratch. But we made it and Tintag never leaves you dry. It recharges wirelessly and after 6 hours it's ready to go for up to 4 months," says Andrei Vig, Tintag's Co-Founder.  

How do I find my stuff?

Unlike other tracking devices, Tintag offers two ways to locate your items: with the beep of the buzzer or quietly with a flicker of lights. Just check the app on you phone and activate one or another. Neither rings a bell? Check on your phone the history of locations where your item was last seen and you can easily remember where you've left it.

One can connect the same Tintag to multiple phones

If for instance, both you and your spouse want to simultaneously locate your kid or your dog you would have a hard time using traditional item trackers that won't be able to connect to more than one phone. Meanwhile, one can connect the same Tintag to multiple phones even if we're talking connecting the same tracker to an iPhone and an Android phone.

Item out of sight? Find it through a network of hotspots and Lost & Found Community.

The Home Base charger can also work as a hotspot that scans 24x7 for Tintag devices, so with the help of the network of hotspots you can track down your lost items even from afar. And when someone finds your lost item and enters your Tintag's unique id on found.tint.ag, a notification will be immediately sent to you, with the location of your item.

Shipping prototypes this November

Since the backers of earlier campaigned item trackers had to wait even 12 months to get their hands on their devices, Tintag's plan is to ship the first 500 functional prototypes as soon as November 2014. "Although we're talking prototypes and not the fully functional product (that will come in April 2015) our users will quickly get a taste of Tintag," says Alex Chis, Co-Founder.

Aggressive promotional offers

To strengthen their competitive edge its Co-Founders will price one Tintag plus its home base charger at $19 during the crowdfunding campaign about to start on the 8th of September. People who sign up to their email list until then will receive an extra Tintag for free during the campaign.
