For Tiles with a replaceable battery, the battery will work up to a year.
Tile Premium subscribers receive free battery replacements yearly.
For non-subscribers, these batteries are sold at most convenience stores or can be ordered online from Amazon. We recommend the Energizer and Duracell brands.
Note: If you replace your Tile battery with a different battery than recommended, the battery life may vary.
You will need:
- A new battery.
- For Mate (2020 or 2018): CR1632
- Tile Pro (2022 or 2020): CR2032
- A precision screwdriver or paperclip.
To change the battery
- Open the battery door by applying a bit of pressure and sliding the door off.
- Remove the battery using a precision screwdriver or a paperclip.
- Insert the new battery completely into the battery compartment with the positive (+) side of the battery visible.
- Close the battery door, ensuring it is completely sealed. If not sealed, the battery connection and your Tile’s functionality may be affected.
Test your new battery by tapping Find on the Tile in the Tile app. Your Tile will then ring to show a successful connection.
