Ubisoft details European exclusive Child of Light Deluxe Edition
UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES THE CHILD OF LIGHT™ DELUXE EDITION
London, UK – March 5th, 2014 – Today, Ubisoft announced that Child of LightTM, the poetic turn-based RPG that will release digitally on April 30th, 2014, will also be available the same day in retail as a Deluxe Edition on PlayStation® 3, PlayStation® 4 and on Windows® PC. This Deluxe Edition is available for pre-orders right now and will be available in the UK and other EMEA territories only.
The Child of LightTM Deluxe Edition will contain exclusive content, including a poster designed by Yoshitaka Amano, the renowned Japanese artist, a 24 page art book with unrevealed artwork and an Igniculus key ring. This boxed edition will also include additional game content, with a bonus quest, a new character and a pack of collectibles.
Additionally, the PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 versions of the game, both in retail and digital, will benefit from the cross-buy option. Therefore, players buying Child of LightTM on PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 will be able to play the game on both platforms at no additional cost.
Child of LightTM is created by a small team of seasoned developers based in Ubisoft Montreal. It has been developed on Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, a powerful engine that lets programmers and artists bring their art to life by allowing original concept art to be inserted unedited into the game world. In Child of LightTM, the effect is akin to stepping into an interactive painting.
Child of LightTM is a reimagining of classic fairytales, inviting players on an epic adventure into the magical painted world of Lemuria. Players will uncover mysteries, participate in turn-by-turn combat inspired by classic JRPGs, and explore a mystical kingdom. The game puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who, in her quest to return, must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the Queen of the Night. Helped by her companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears, including dragons and other mystical creatures, in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.
The game will be available for download on Xbox LIVE for the Xbox® 360 and Xbox® One, the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4, the eShop from Nintendo for the Wii U, and PC Digital, at the price of £11.99.

Child of Light (Game) – Giant Bomb
Child of light is a role-playing game (RPG) being developed by Ubisoft Montreal. It follows the protagonist, Aurora, in her adventures to save the mysterious world of Lemuria and rescue it from the grasp of the Dark Queen and her minions. Ubisoft describes Child of Light as a “poetic turn-based RPG.”
Child of Light was announced at the Game Developers Conference Europe (GDC) in August 2013 by the game’s developer Patrick Plourde. At a panel entitled “Small Projects in AAA Studios: Making of Child of Light”, Plourde described the the project as “a game that is a playable painting”. He further explained that early 20th Century Swedish artist John Bauer was his primary inspiration for its art style, along with Studio Ghibli founder Hayao Miyazaki and artist Yoshitaka Amano.
Ubisoft describes Child of Light’s gameplay as “fighting your enemies in an Active-Time Battle System, you will be able to fight alongside the firefly Igniculus and other members of Aurora’s party.” The game’s combat characteristics appear very reminiscent of earlier Final Fantasy titles. Developer Patrick Plourde also directly quoted Squaresoft’s earlier titles as inspiration for the combat system.
The music in Child of Light is composed by Canadian singer-songwriter Béatrice Martin, also known as Cœur de pirate. The soundtrack was released on the same day as the game on April 29th 2014.

The game saw a physical retail release on Sony PlayStations platforms alongside its downloadable release.
Dubbed the Deluxe Edition on the PS3 / PS4 this edition of the game included bonus in-game items, a light up keychain and an art book with a download code for both the PS3 and PS4 version of the game.
The PS Vita release however was called The Complete Edition and includes all of the games DLC and unlike the PS3 / PS4 release included a physical cartridge rather than a download code.

Best Bluetooth Trackers 2021 | Tile and Airtag Reviews
Bluetooth trackers like Tile devices or Apple AirTags help you easily locate your prized possessions. Designed to be thin and unobtrusive, they can slide into a bag, stick to the surface of an object and attach to the things you care about. Using your phone and Bluetooth connectivity, bluetooth trackers show you on your phone’s screen how close you are to the tagged item and play a sound to guide you in the right direction. If you happen to accidentally drop an item while out and about, there’s a high chance that you’ll be able to recover whatever you’ve lost.
Both Tile and AirTag run processes in the background of owners’ phones to create a crowdsourced network. When another Bluetooth tracker user is in the vicinity of your lost wallet, keys, or whatever, you’ll receive a private ping with the item’s last registered location. With over 35 million Tiles in the wild and Apple’s Find My network approaching one billion devices, bluetooth trackers don’t rely on GPS and therefore are relatively affordable, thanks to lower production costs and no cellular service plan requirements. This affordability democratizes tracking for items of any value, whether it’s a $500 cordless drill or the $10 stuffy your child can’t live without.
BEST FOR MOST PEOPLE
Tile’s top offering may not boast the same precision as an AirTag, but its exclusive two-way finding pairs with better range and sound.
With the biggest network, precision finding down to an inch, and plenty of security, this generation of AirTag is just shy of the TilePro due to its shorter range, lower ring, and no included key hole.
Offering the most versatility out of the bunch thanks to a 3M adhesive that cements to nearly any surface, Tile’s Sticker is the smallest smart tracker we tested.
FOR YOUR WALLET
Best tucked in your wallet or between the pages of a passport, the Tile Slim is reliable but has admittedly limited use cases. It performs well with solid range and sound production.
With an IP67 rating, loud alarm and slim body that can either slide into a wallet or stick to a surface, the Shadow combines everything we love about other trackers while carving its own identity thanks to its easily rechargeable battery.
What Is a Bluetooth Tracker anyway?
Instead of relying on a cell signal and providing real-time tracking updates like GPS, these types of trackers connect to your phone through Bluetooth. Once paired you can interact with them via dedicated app. If you lose an item in your house or an immediate area you can trigger a sound to guide you towards your tracker with a basic visual indication of how close or far you are from the device displayed on your screen. Each bluetooth tracker has its own software and feature set. Running in the background of each smart tracker user’s phone, whenever a device passes through another tracker’s signal it privately pings the location for the owner. Tile and Apple’s larger networks blanket much more areas than competitors like Chipolo, Cube and Samsung SmartThings with install bases that are too small for reliable coverage outside of the home..
Launching in 2014, Tile’s Bluetooth tracker put a spotlight on the potential of bluetooth item finders. Years on the market have helped Tile create its current lineup of refined devices for every occasion. With slim products that attach in a variety of ways from key rings to adhesives, an app that is hardware-agnostic, and millions of users in its stable network, there’s been little for this cube to fear. Tile’s smart UI, growing user base and major partnerships with Tile integrations into popular electronics like headphones and laptops have helped the company blanket a large portion of the globe.
Coming straight for Tile’s throne as the king of smart trackers, Apple’s AirTag is equipped with smarter features, innovative design, and a much larger network. Launching in late April, Apple has already shaken up the market and brought the general public’s attention to the concept of item finders. AirTag comes in a singular rounded design and features Precision Finding, which provides spot-on visual directions using an arrow, haptic feedback, and audio to guide you to within an inch of your AirTag for minimal searching. It outpaces the Tile searching experience but is limited to use with an iPhone 11 or 12. A single AirTag costs $29, but you can get free engraving if you order directly from Apple, which is a nice customization option that Tile lacks.
While Tile’s versatility may have the upper hand, its security features don’t come close to what Apple bakes in. Apple’s location tracking is encrypted from end-to-end while using rotating identifiers to keep your information scrambled. Not even the company itself can track your activity. AirTags will notify users if someone has placed a tracker on them by playing a beep after three days separated from their owner. Whether you use Apple or Android, a tap of the AirTag with a NFC device shows serial information in addition to disable instructions. Chipolo’s One Spot is one of the first third-party devices to use the FindMy network, but Apple mandates the same safety features from its partners.
Tile and Cube simply promises not to sell your data. The Tile team is working with experts to implement a similar feature to AirTag’s unwanted tracking beep, but there’s no implementation just yet.
Measuring the precise distance before the trackers no longer held a local connection.
Features To Consider
Smart trackers rely on Bluetooth signals to reach your phone or communicate with passing trackers. You’ll want to know how far each tracker’s signal reaches before failing. The farther the range extends, the larger your space for tracking and better the chance of pinging items from user networks. While smaller trackers’ lower ranges sacrifice power for size, they’re great for items around the house but aren’t as reliable outside of it. More powerful trackers tend to cost more, but the improved range makes it easier to find your items over a larger area. Keep in mind that manufacturers use “up to” when disclosing ranges, as our testing revealed they can exaggerate these estimates greatly.
Alarm Sound Production
Unless you’re using Precision Finding with AirTags, relying solely on visuals to hunt down a tracker is rough. Rings from your smart tracker provide an additional directional point to lead you towards your device. Louder decibel readings are easier to hear and thus easier to find.
While Tile is compatible with both major mobile operating systems, Android and iOS, AirTags are locked to Apple’s iOS ecosystem. This means non-iPhone users don’t get to use precision finding, appreciate the instantaneous setup, or benefit from the nearly billion strong Find My network.
Tile devices, on the other hand, work with Windows, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa. AirTags will show up on Find My using a Mac, but the smart home integration is lackluster outside of Siri.
Lastly, you’ll want to see what kind of battery your potential smart tracker uses. The Tile Pro and AirTag use replaceable CR2032 coin batteries that expire after one year. The smaller Mate uses a CR1632. Tile’s Sticker and Slim will last for for two and three years without needing a battery change, but both devices get thrown out after this life cycle.
How We Tested and Selected
Using two-weeks of testing experience as a baseline, I created a lifelike test to get hard data. Centering each bluetooth tracker on the same marked point to simulate my wallet, I walked as far as I could until I lost bluetooth connection. Once out of range of the tracker, I dropped another marker down to signify the end of coverage. Using Plott’s Carta smart measuring wheel, I calculated the length between both points three times to find the average operating distance. The center of the tracker and range barrier marker were the start and end points for measurements. While our testing setting was a wide-open 500 foot straightway with no interference, indoor range can vary with concrete walls and signals inside of your home.
Using a sound meter to measure the decibel production of each tracker.
To capture sound readings, we mounted a digital sound level meter ten feet away from each tracker centered inside of a “junk basket” of random objects. I settled on ten feet because, in my experience using Bluetooth trackers, that’s how close I would get relying on the signal before telling the tracker to chime so I could home in on its exact location. We made sure there were no ambient noises that could interfere with our readings, then recorded five seconds of each tracker’s alarm and calculated average decibel levels from those. Like range, sound is hampered by obstructions, so you may not hear your Tracker as clearly if it’s in a drawer or underneath a pile of clothes. This is especially true for a Tile Slim sitting in a wallet and the Tile Sticker if the speakers are blocked. We assigned each reading a comparable noise so that you can get a rough idea of the volume level.
For trackers we didn’t get a chance to test, check out our “Other Great Options” section below our hands-on reviews. These popular alternatives either launched after our testing period such as the new Chipolo One Spot, or couldn’t be tested without certain hardware like the Galaxy Smart Tags, which require a Galaxy phone.
—BEST FOR MOST PEOPLE—
Range: 140 ft average | Sound production: 66 decibels at 10 ft | Compatibility: Android and iOS | Battery: Replaceable | Sounds like: Alarm clock
- Longest range
- Loudest speaker
- Find phone from tracker
Tile’s Pro tracker is hardware-agnostic and loud and—most importantly—has a long range. Its visual tracking capabilities aren’t as precise as the AirTags but exceeds its rival’s basic functionality with the largest operating range and loudest sound production on a Bluetooth tracker. Downloading the Tile app and setting up an account takes around two minutes. Once you’re set up the experience of finding a lost object is incredibly simple on both Android and iOS.
The Tile Pro’s build is sturdy, with a thick 1.7 x 1.7 x 0.3-inch frame. It’s 12-gram body is deceptively light and easy to hold, not adding much weight to your gear. While one side features a lone button, flipping the Pro around exposes a removable CR2032 battery cover and three holes for the speaker. A built-in corner keyring means you can attach this to your keys or simply slide the tile into something like a backpack.
To pair the Tile Pro with your phone, you simply need to open up the app and hit the add Tile button. Pressing down the logo button on your Tile puts it into pairing mode. A tune plays as a signal to go ahead and hit next, connecting your phone to the Tile within seconds. A quick walkthrough explains the basics. Click the play sound button on your phone to find your Tile and double click the pairing button on the Tile itself twice to ring your phone, even on silent.
Tile’s built-in two-way finding feature has a leg up on AirTags, which don’t offer a similar ability. Tile runs its app in your phone’s background processes, similar to Apple’s Find My operation. Opening the app provides a somewhat cluttered UI that shows each device in a gallery with clip art-like images for visual identification of your items. Hitting the device you need pulls up a map, large find button, location history and sharing menu. Like AirTag, you can use Siri to help you find your objects. Where that is naturally integrated into AirTag, Tile users need to manually create a shortcut to trigger Siri assistance. You can also connect Tile to both Alexa and Google Assistant for smart home integration, which AirTags cannot. This proved helpful in mornings where I rushed out of my apartment for work and asked Alexa to find my keys and wallet.
Finding your objects is simple. You’ll see a five-ring circle on your phone’s screen, with each ring filling in the closer you get to your device. But it’s a guessing game of hot or cold with vague wording telling you if you’re moderately or very close. It works best in a house, as the walls help the Tile’s tone to resonate. However, in an open field or out in public, this can be frustrating and where the AirTag’s more precise location tracking wipes the floor with Tile.
The improved performance over other models in the Tile lineup make this great for important everyday carry items such as a set of keys because it’s versatile and hard to lose. In our test, the Tile Pro had a superior range of 141 feet. The 66 decibel amplified sound was the loudest of all the devices we tested and put the 53 decibel reading from the AirTags to shame. That’s almost as loud as an alarm clock. To top it all off, you can customize the ringtone with over ten options.
Range: 93 ft average | Sound production: 53 decibels at 10 ft | Compatibility: iOS Exclusive | Battery: Replaceable 1-year CR2032 with warning | Sounds like: Moderate rainfall
- IP67 rating
- Precision finding
- Unmatched security
- Larger user network for out-of-house locating
- Weakest sound
- Requires separate purchase to attach to objects
Within just six months on the market, Apple’s AirTags have accomplished more than Tile has done in almost a decade. These sleek 11-gram trackers pair to your phone within seconds, have a larger tracking network for losses outside of your home, and offer an advanced location system called precision finding that leads you to within an inch of your tracker using GPS-like navigation and feedback. If you own the latest Apple devices, you should consider AirTags because they’re smarter overall. If you’re on Android, you don’t have the choice to use AirTags as they’re exclusive to Apple’s ecosystem.
At roughly the size of a dollar coin, the 1.3-inch AirTag is just a hair wider than Tile’s smallest offering, the Sticker, by 0.2 inches. You won’t notice any exposed speaker holes or buttons on an AirTag, which allows for their IP67 rating and ability to hold up under one meter of water for over an hour. Light and sturdy, these tags can help you track down your objects even in adverse conditions.
iPhone owners are likely familiar with the magic of pairing Apple accessories in seconds. From Apple Watch to AirPods, a quick scan or press is all it takes. AirTags are no different; you simply pull a plastic tab and your phone immediately recognizes and connects to your AirTag, integrating the tracker into your AppleID, Find My, and Maps apps within seconds. It’s fast, painless, and easy. There’s no extra app required or pairing to go through. Like with Tile, you can name your AirTag from a list of helpful predetermined options. You can also use emojis to create a custom label.
Launching the Find My app shows your tracked possessions under the aptly name Items category. Navigating this app is much cleaner than Tile’s interface, with three clearly spaced buttons: play sound, precision find, and toggle button for lost mode. Plus you can say “Hey Siri, where are my keys?” without having to set up a Siri shortcut automation like with Tile. There’s no location history, smart alert, or ringtone button, however. In classic Apple fashion, you’ll have to spend more money on a superfluous loop accessory to attach your AirTag to a keyring or dog collar. This is frustrating when Tile’s devices adhere to your items instantly.
AirTag’s Precision Finding feature gets us within an inch of our device.
With your AirTags up and running, an iPhone 11 or newer model uses onboard sensors and ARkit for the AirTag’s signature precision finding feature. Combining augmented reality, spatial scanning, and ultra-wide band technology, precision finding triangulates your phone’s location in a space to directly guide you to your AirTag with an on-screen arrow. In our tests the accuracy consistently came within an inch. Where Tile’s circle fills up when you get closer to the tracker, there’s no guessing games with Precision Find. You simply get GPS directional accuracy accompanied by haptic feedback to the item you’re searching for without having to replay sounds for guidance.
AirTags have the superior finding network, with nearly one billion Find My users to date. This means, if you lose your AirTags in public, there’s a better chance of your device being pinged by other phones at a more frequent rate for more accurate status updates to help you locate your missing items. Tile’s network is only about 10 percent of the Find My community and consists of 35 million Tiles and partnered products like HP laptops, Fitbit watches, and Skullcandy headphones, in addition to Amazon Sidewalk.
So why aren’t AirTags our first recommendation? While smarter, their core functionality lags behind the Tile Pro. We clocked the local Bluetooth range at 93 feet compared to the 140 feet of the Tile Pro. On both a straightway and through the walls of a home, we were able to get a 99-foot average with precision finding active. Where each Tile produced a minimum sound of 60 decibels from ten feet away the AirTags could only produce an average of 53 decibels. That’s about equal to the sound of moderate rainfall. Speaking of rain, AirTag’s IP67 water and dust resistance comes at a cost as the ringtone has to fight through the white plastic body.
Lastly, precision finding, the biggest draw to the AirTags, is limited to iPhone 11 and up. Unless you have the latest iPhone, the Tile Pro’s two-way finding offers a feature AirTags lack and is just as helpful. And if you want the larger Find My network, the Chipolo One below offers a better value for older iPhones. There’s no doubt that AirTags are good now, but we’d like to see a similar two-way finding feature, louder sound production, and a range improvement in the next generation. It would also be nice to have a keyring included so you can attach your AirTags to your items without having to buy one separately.
Range: 140 ft average | Sound production: 60 decibels at 10 ft | Compatibility: Android and iOS | Battery: 2-year non-replaceable | Sounds like: Normal Conversation
- Attaches to any surface
- Smallest size
Tile’s Sticker is the smallest bluetooth tracker we tested. Instead of attaching to your items or slipping into a bag, it uses a capable 3M adhesive to stay in place on nearly anything. This opens up possibilities for things it would be hard to attach a tracker to, like a daily pair of sunglasses. Plus you can stick it to your usual everyday carry items like a wallet or keys for a smaller footprint.
Other than the different body, the Tile app works the same as the Pro above from the pairing process to the user interface. The tradeoff is weaker sound and a shortened range. We got a 60-decibel average and a less-than-stellar 57-foot range in our tests. That’s about the sound of a normal conversation. Unlike the Tile Pro or AirTags above, the battery is stuck at a two-year life span, then the entire Tile is meant to be discarded.
Ultimately the Tile Sticker is for those who want a bluetooth tracker that won’t add bulk to their items. This slick alternative has the most versatility out of the box. Its small size packs the same smart features as the Tile Pro, retaining a button that can activate two-way finding to help you track down your phone.
—FOR YOUR WALLET—
Range: 77 ft average | Sound production: 66 decibels at 10 ft | Compatibility: Android and iOS | Battery: 3-year non-replaceable | Sounds like: Busy restaurant
- Space-saving shape fits right into wallet
- Strong sound
From pocketbooks to slimline men’s wallets, the Tile Slim’s credit card shape and thickness slid into any case we tested without friction. Not only did the Slim impress with design, but functionally it has an impressive range and retains the button necessary for two-way finding. We measured the Slim’s Bluetooth reach at an impressive 77 feet, nearly 20 more than the Tile Mate, which is supposedly supposed to have the same range.
But that’s just one part of the formula. Producing a 63-decibel sound, the Slim beats out AirTags and the Tile Sticker, sitting just below our top pick. This sound is as loud as a busy restaurant.
You can slide the Slim into your wallet or in between pages of your passport, but it’s a huge contrast to the Sticker’s ability to stick on to absolutely anything. Plus you also have to throw the entire Slim out after three years despite its larger size. Its purpose for wallets is great, but it has the narrowest use in the entire lineup.
Range: Up to 200 ft | Sound production: 100 decibels (claimed) | Compatibility: Android and iOS | Battery: Rechargeable | Sounds like: Power tool
- IP67 Rated
- Slim and versatile
- No need to throw out or replace battery
- Small network makes it difficult to find out of the house
The Cube Shadow is a small and thin item finder, like the Tile Slim, that also adheres to an object’s surface, like the Sticker. With an IP67 rating that rivals AirTags, the Shadow can withstand being submerged in up to one meter of water for 30 minutes. Cube successfully brought together most of the best features of each item tracker above but is held back by a significantly smaller tracking network.
Ditching the key ring and sticking the Shadow to an item keeps the device at just 0.1-inch thick, about as thin as a coin, and 1.9 inches both long and wide for an unobtrusive shape. Unlike Tile’s smaller options like the Slim or Sticker, you don’t have to throw away the device after the battery dies. You can recharge it with ease without having to remove it from the item it’s tracking. This cuts down on landfill waste but requires charging almost every two months.
A built-in button can be used for two-way finding like Tile devices and expands the functionality a step further by serving as a remote control while taking selfies. Notifications alert you when you’ve disconnected from your tracker’s range to let you know if you’ve left something behind and there’s Alexa integration. Whether you’re dealing with rain or snow, the Shadow’s durability make this a tough Tile alternative. But an app that looks like it’s fresh out of the late 2000s and a smaller user network limits these to use around the house. While the notification that you’ve been disconnected from your tracker is helpful on the move, you won’t be able to see a pinged location if an item is stolen or you see the notification too late.
Other Great Options
Samsung Galaxy Smart Tag Plus
Range: Up to 393 ft | Sound production: 100 decibels (claimed) | Compatibility: Android | Battery: Replaceable
- AR Finder
- Programmable actions
- Variety of colors
- Limited SmartThings network
Samsung Galaxy owners can use Smart Tag Plus, a feature-packed AirTags alternative for Android. It only works for the latest Galaxy Samsung phones, is limited to the SmartThings network, and packs just a six-month battery life, but excels in customizability. That’s due to a programmable function button, actual AR view of your tag in a space, and smart home integration for use as a IoT remote.
While Precision Find on iPhone pulls up GPS-like navigation to your tracker, AR Finder on the Smart Tag Plus shows a directional arrow overlay in the real world guiding you toward your tracker. When you’re close, a shimmering green light forms around your tracker to make grabbing it even easier. If you think that’s cool, Samsung’s SmartThings app allows you to program button functions for when you press or hold down the tag. You can use a press to control integrated lights in a room or hold the button to activate a find my phone feature.
The rubber body is resistant to scratch and scuffs for durability. Not only can you pick your Smart Tag in a variety of colors, there are eight different ringtones to choose from as well. If you’re a Galaxy owner and feel like you’re missing out on AirTag, these offer even more advanced smarts than Apple and the rest of the lot.
—FOR OLDER IPHONES—
Chipolo One Spot (2021)
Range: Up to 200 ft | Sound production: 120 decibels (claimed) | Compatibility: iOS | Battery: Replaceable
ONE Spot (2021)
- Uses expansive Find My network
- Built-in keyring hole
- No NFC or Ultra-wideband
- Uninspired design
Chipolo’s One Spot taps into Apple’s expansive Find My network to offer a slick AirTag alternative for iOS devices. You won’t get NFC or Ultra-wideband tech for Precision Finding, but there are functional improvements like a built-in keyring, louder alarm, and long Bluetooth range. If you don’t have an iPhone 11 or newer, this is worth checking out.
You’re locked to the single black option for this round plastic disc that could benefit from a wider color selection. The tracker’s plastic body is light and fits like a glove on your keyring. Unlike with other Chipolo trackers, you don’t need to use the separate Chipolo app to pair or use this model. Launching your iPhone’s built-in Find My software allows you to add the device and control it from the Items tab. When you use the play sound function, the Chipolo One Spot doesn’t stop playing a sound after a few seconds like AirTags—the alarm rings until you turn it off.
For all intents and purposes, this budget AirTag surpasses Apple’s tracker if you don’t have an iPhone 11 or newer to make use of Precision Finding. Unfortunately, the lack of NFC makes it difficult to identify the device.
Range: 55 ft average | Sound production: 64 decibels at 10 ft | Compatibility: Android and iOS | Battery: Replaceable
- Thin, with a keyhole
The Tile Mate is a thinner and cheaper alternative to the Pro. It’s lightweight and sleek, but the $10 price difference between the Mate and the Pro is apparent given the Mate’s severely shorter range, its lower sound, and the stiffer button.
We got the Mate to an average 55 feet before losing the signal. This is the shortest distance in the entire bluetooth tracker pool. To give you a visual comparison, that would be about ten feet longer than a standard city bus. What the Mate lacks in range, it makes up for in sound, just 2 decibels behind the Pro at 64, or about the sound of traffic.
If you want an affordable alternative to the Tile Pro, the mate is thinner and sounds great when you’re searching for things around the house. I’ll even die on the hill that it’s the best-looking tracker out of the entire group. But looks aren’t everything, and I don’t recommend this as strongly as the other models on our list if you’ll be using it with the hopes of finding an item outside of your home.

Keychain luminous Aliexpress Minions baby toy New Light Sound Doll Key Ring minions Despicable Me 3D Mini Minions LED Keychain Kids Children Toys Cover – “For two friends – two loud minions! (photo) “
I suggest you admire two cute keychains – minions from aliexpress. On the seller’s website, you can buy one-eyed or two-eyed crumbs.
They came in a thick soft winding + in individual bags:
Here they crawled out of their packaging
I tried to guess their names, but to no avail.There were many identical minions in the cartoon. So maybe it’s Dave … or Tim, as a last resort Kevin
It seems to me that none of them were upset that they remained nameless. And everyone still smiles cheerfully:
Like a keychain, the design of the minions is original. The metal loop folds inward, the keys are put on, and the loop returns to its place. She’s tight.
Minions 5.5 cm
Their tiny arms move up and down:
Even in the dark, you won’t get bored with them. Because when you press on the head (or rather, on the pimp on the head, where the chain is attached), the eyes of the minions light up with a bright light …
… and so that you don’t go unnoticed anyway, each minion also screams a mysterious word.I heard: “Diamonds!” But perhaps it is “I love you!” I don’t know … Everyone will understand, because of his
Light and sound act only as long as you press the pimp! The minions came with battery protection, that is, with a plastic insert that needs to be pulled out in order for everything to work.
I think the boys will appreciate and hang on their school backpacks
And I found the most complete and interesting information about minions here. Enjoy, fans!

It took the author about 40 hours to create this miracle. The work was quite tedious, especially considering that he did everything himself.

light control system in a smart home / Amperka
It is believed that a “smart home” is something expensive and useless, which is planned at the stage of renovation.The nooLite device complex will break this stereotype.
The nooLite family is a radio control system for lighting and home appliances. Forget about punching, wires and wall crushing: now the light control can be transferred to a convenient place. Wireless technology will greatly simplify the process and save you time.
In the simplest case, the system consists of one control panel and a power unit. The remote control transmits a command over the radio channel to the power unit, which turns on / off or adjusts the brightness of the lighting.All devices communicate with each other on a 433 MHz radio frequency. The range of the signal between the modules is up to 50 meters. This is enough to control devices in an apartment or private house.
A controller can also participate in the system: a network gateway connected to a home Wi-Fi router, or a USB adapter for a computer. They will allow you to control the entire system from a laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
Why do I need smart light
So, with nooLite you can control the light very flexibly.But a reasonable question may arise – why? You have probably come across one of the scenarios in which the nooLite wireless system would be very appropriate:
- When you bought a new cabinet, a switch interferes with its installation, and spoiling the walls to transfer wiring is not an option.
- If a child cannot fall asleep without light, and every time after that, getting up and going to turn off the light is lazy.
- If you want to control the light, lying in bed with your favorite book.
- To turn off the lights in the entire apartment with one button before leaving the house.
- To turn on street lighting from anywhere in the lot.
- To control lighting and other electrics from a computer, smartphone or tablet.
- When there are many light sources, but you want to control them in groups.
- If a small child does not yet reach the wall switch, but wants to give him the opportunity to turn on the light.
- When you want to steer the light in the bathroom additionally from the bathroom itself.
Connection in 20 minutes
Installing a nooLite system is as easy as replacing a simple rocker switch.Consider the introduction of nooLite on a trivial problem in everyday life: new furniture blocks access to a stationary switch. It is necessary to move the switch to a different location.
- Install the power unit in a box from an existing breaker, in a chandelier glass, or behind a false ceiling. It is he who will control the connected load. The old switch can be replaced with a plug if desired.
- Mount the remote control in a new location: on the wall opposite or where it is more convenient.It will transmit on-off commands over the air. The radio signal range is sufficient to cover the entire apartment.
- Carry out a simple procedure of binding the remote control to the power unit by pressing one service button.
That’s it, the system is ready to go, no existing wiring required!
Add an Ethernet gateway to the system and nooLite becomes a smartphone friend. The nooLite Home Control app for Android and iOS allows you to comfortably control, monitor and set lighting scenarios from your favorite phone.
Compatible with Arduino and Raspberry Pi
For developers and lovers of DIY electronics, the nooLite line of devices includes a transceiver module. The adapter will make nooLite wireless devices with Arduino and STM32 control boards. And if you own a Raspberry Pi single-board computer, use a USB adapter and control the nooLite system in Python.
Such a union will allow programming the system for an event according to the readings of sensors and sensors: for example, when darkness falls, turn on the light at the gate, or regulate the heating when the temperature changes.You just have to choose the control board and programming language.
What the nooLite
system consists of
The nooLite system contains consoles, power units and controllers. You can easily limit yourself to just a couple of elements. Or you can add new nodes as needed, over the course of several years. All elements of the system are compatible with each other: nothing will prevent you from replacing the power unit with a more powerful one without changing the control panels.
The radio remote control remotely controls the power units and outwardly resembles a conventional switch, which can be placed in any convenient place without the need for wiring.The remotes are powered by a battery that lasts for at least 3 years.
The nooLite system also has built-in switches that make your stationary home switch a radio remote control, and key fob remotes that you can hang from your keychain and carry around.
The wireless remote control can be placed in a convenient place:
- on the wall;
- at the bedside table;
- on the sofa body from the invisible side;
- inside the bathroom;
- on a kitchen apron.
The power unit is an executing device that receives commands from the console or controller and controls the connected load. Power units can control almost any load that fits into the unit’s rated power:
- incandescent lamps;
- halogen lamps;
- energy saving lamps;
- LED luminaires;
- fluorescent lamps;
- LED strips;
- heaters, motors, blinds, air conditioners and fans.
In addition to the load power, the power units differ in their design and capabilities:
- indoor and outdoor with IP65 protection, which are not afraid of rain and snow;
- relay (on / off) and dimmable with brightness control;
- for lighting devices with 220 V power supply and 12/24 V LED strips;
- multichannel, supporting up to 10 controlled lines.
To expand the system, use controllers that will help you control the lighting using a computer, mobile phone or Arduino.Who knows, maybe the idea of moving the light switch will be the first step in making your home smart.
The control of the entire nooLite system can be combined with the following devices:
- Ethernet gateway connects the nooLite system to the home network in order to monitor the status and control the units via the app for smartphones and tablets on Android / iOS. For operation, the mobile device must be connected via Wi-Fi to the local network in which the controller is located. The router will allow organizing the control of the nooLite system on large areas where it is impossible to use conventional radio transmitters due to insufficient operating range.
- USB adapter allows you to receive and transmit control commands to devices of the nooLite system using a computer.
- Arduino adapter is a transceiver for communication of nooLite modules with control platforms via the UART interface. An Arduino controller or USB-UART converter is suitable for this. But that is another story.

90,000 Charon Baby Review by Smoant
Tireless ants from Smoant at the end of last year presented another addition to their ranks – Charon Baby Pod Kit , which will be discussed in today’s review.
Thanks to the manufacturer Smoant for the set Charon Baby
provided for review
Contents and navigation
Charon Baby Packaging
The device is sold in a small but weighty cardboard box, on the front side of which, according to the established tradition, you can immediately see the design of your purchase.In addition to the illustration, the name of the device is also located here, and its characteristics, a listing of the delivery set and a color mark ( CHARON BABY KIT SS ) are located on the reverse side.
My copy was sealed with a protective seal with the familiar inscription Sample For Test Only , but nothing inside indicates that the device is anything different from the same one that can be purchased in a vape shop. A sticker with a QR code and verification of originality under a protective layer is located on the top of the package.
Inside the cardboard outlet with a glossy laminated surface, there is a black cardboard box with foil logos of the manufacturer Smoant on the lid and several walls.
Charon Baby Kit
- Battery Pack Charon Baby Mod
- Cartridge Baby Cartridge
- Lanyard USB Type-C Cable
- Evaporator 0.6ohm Mesh Coil (Installed in Cartridge)
- Evaporator 1.2ohm Ni80 Coil
- User Guide
- Warranty card
- Quality Certificate
For those who held the Battlestar Baby in their hands, the contents of the box with the Charon Baby will not be unexpected: here is exactly the same set of one cartridge and two evaporators with different windings, a branded lanyard with a marked ruler that turns into a charging cable, and heap of waste paper in Chinese and English.
Appearance and design of Charon Baby
In addition to the fact that the kit resembles the previous creation of the Chinese from Smoant Technology , and the device itself is almost a copy of a small “battle cruiser”, however, only the filling: the same Ant Chip CO-4 board is used here, which has all the protections and capabilities like its predecessor.But outwardly this is a completely different device, which will appeal to those who do not like the angular “drag-like” body of the Battlestar Baby.
The contours of the body evoke persistent associations with a toy, but this is only outwardly, since as soon as you take this baby in your hands, the impression changes radically. Firstly, the rather impressive weight is to blame, despite the miniature dimensions the device weighs unexpectedly a lot – almost 100 g. Secondly, metal is used here, and, in this case, the frame without vulgar gloss, but with a smooth satin surface.And thirdly, an unusual looking and rather thick transparent plastic in a couple of millimeters, rounded on all sides and covering panels with a colored print. On both sides under the plastic, in addition to stains that resemble either a stabilized tree, or a polymer resin that has been popular with manufacturers of vape devices for the last couple of years, you can find the company name Smoant and the name of the device Charon Baby . And although the “chips” of the device include protection against fingerprints on the surface, but in fact everything is not so simple: yes, dust and stains are hardly noticeable, but they can still be seen from a certain angle.But not as obvious as it was with Battlestar Baby. And what pleased me separately was the absence of fastening elements (to put it simply, bolts) on the visible parts of the case, which, it seemed to me, the manufacturer would never be able to get rid of.
Image from smoant.com
At the time of publication of this review, only three variants of the Charon Baby were released, the name of each describes only the color of the frame, but not the appearance, but rather, the side panels. If in the case of Black they will be just black, then Blue and Stainless Steel are quite variegated.

UPD And since even after more than a year and a half the device did not even dare to lose its popularity, Smoant (after the announcement of Veer, working on the same evaporators) still released the device in new colors: Matt Dark Blue , Matt Purple , Peacock Blue and Matt Rainbow . It is curious that the panels of the latter version are not voluminous, but flat.

Battery Charon Baby
On the top of the device, on the opposite side of the protruding cartridge, you can find wide holes for attaching the lanyard, at the bottom there are barely noticeable standard icons and a USB Type-C charging connector, which the manufacturer pleases in its latest devices.There is not a single protruding element on the body, except for the installed cartridge. It is worth mentioning that with the rounding in Smoant a little overdone, the bottom plane should have been made a little smoother, Charon Baby on a flat surface from a light touch often strives to fall on its side.
The complete lanyard, which could also be found in the set with the Smoant Battlestar Baby, combines a tailor’s meter and a charging cable at the same time.Its length is about 80 cm, which is enough to hang the device around your neck. The only doubt is the rather big weight of the Charon Baby , so not everyone can be comfortable wearing a heavy pod.
The black and yellow tape turns into a cable with a slight movement of your hand: just press the latches on the sides of the plastic holder to release the USB connectors from one end and Type-C from the opposite. A very convenient accessory that allows you to always keep a charging cord for both the hearth and your mobile phone at hand, if you have one with the same connection.Regret is caused only by a small current that the wire is capable of passing – only approx. 0.85A.
Charon Baby works only from a sensor, neither control, nor shutdown, nor the possibility of changing the voltage, the board does not provide, all that can be done is to get steam when puffed. A nice feature of this board from Smoant is the supply of constant voltage regardless of the remaining charge on the battery due to the stabilizer. A single LED is located at the end, blinking and in color, it is able to display various events, errors and report the approximate state of the built-in battery.When tightened, the indication can light up in one of three colors:
- pale blue (almost white) at 60 – 100% charge
- blue – 60 – 30%
- red – 5 – 30%
In case of non-standard behavior, the device will inform the user about possible errors:
- blink three times red in case of a short circuit on the evaporator winding (or in the absence of an evaporator)
- blink red 5 times when cut-off is triggered (when the device is continuously working for more than 8 seconds)
- blink 10 times red when the battery is discharged (voltage drops below 3 V)
When the device was connected to the charger, the current consumption was 0.70A, both with a complete cable and with a high current passing from a mobile phone. Charon Baby can be used while charging, the board supports pastra mode, when tightening, the current consumption from the charger stops. Approx. 652 mAh battery, the whole process took 1 hour 11 minutes. When the cable is connected, the blinking LED with its color indicates the battery charge level, after the end it lights up with a steady pale blue light.
Inside the case are magnets, spring-loaded contacts and a tiny protrusion with a hole where the tightening sensor is located.And although the cartridge of the device has a symmetrical shape, it is installed only by the only possible side – a silicone plug (there is also an air intake hole) to the outside of the battery pack. If you try to install the cartridge incorrectly, it simply will not go in all the way, so all you have to do is turn it over and insert it in the right direction. The connection, as in many magnet systems, has a slight backlash, but during operation it is invisible, which is incredibly pleasing. When the cartridge is connected, the LED briefly lights up in blue, which indicates normal contact.
Cartridge and vaporizers for Charon Baby
The cartridge that was used in Battlestar Baby turned out to be exactly the same here: it has a volume of 2 ml, is made of darkened food grade PCTG plastic and allows you to easily track the level of the liquid inside. But, as in the previous device, for this it will have to be constantly taken out, since the capacity is completely hidden in the battery pack. The internal structure of the hearth can be easily seen in the light: on the left side of the edge there is a silicone plug and an air intake system, almost in the center – an installed replaceable evaporator, closer to the right edge – a thin metal tube that goes to the sensor and allows it to be triggered when tightened.
A small hole at the edge on the mouthpiece leads to this very air channel, and it does not add extra air to the steam when puffing. The evaporator is already installed in the new cartridge, its contacts are sealed with a protective film with the speaking inscription REMOVE , which excludes accidental operation of the device in the box. The black plug that covers the filler hole has a small tongue that you can pick up with your fingernails. But sometimes you need tweezers or something sharp, as a rule, this applies to a new specimen, it is difficult to open a dry plug.In the same recess where the filling is located, the air intake hole is also hidden, from here the flow enters the lower part of the cartridge and there on the winding of the evaporator. Unfortunately, the design does not provide for tightening adjustment, and the tightness will depend only on the selected changer.
Cartridge and evaporators are purchased separately, the replacement is held in the body by the originals: two at the base and two at the top. The connection is tight, the evaporator comes out with noticeable resistance, it sits very confidently inside, no leaks were noticed.
The set with Charon Baby contains the same two vaporizers familiar from Battlestar Baby, nothing new Smoant has been offered to us yet. The one originally installed in the cartridge is labeled Mesh 0.6Ω and uses a mesh winding (material not specified). With it, the puff turns out to be half-boiled, but you can easily soar and like a “cigarette”, there is a lot of steam, it is warm, the taste of the liquid (I used Sweet Salt Mandarin Dream) is transmitted perfectly.The spare, which is in the bag, uses a simple vertical coil with Ni80 nichrome winding and has a resistance of 1.2 Ohm, due to the small diameter of the mandrel, it gives a tighter tightening and at the same time less saturated, but also cooler steam. Both changers use organic cotton, even the installed coil did not have any foreign odors. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not yet released the serviced RBA base for its devices.
The refill port easily accommodates both tapered and straight (with a little pressure) gorilla droppers, and even thin glass pipettes.There are no problems with refueling, it seems that excess air from the tank comes out at the junction of the plug with the body. It is not necessary to use the device immediately after the first refueling, you must wait a few minutes until the winding is soaked so that the cotton in the evaporator does not burn out.
Impressions and conclusions
The new Charon Baby is very much reminiscent of Battlestar Baby, starting with the configuration, ending with the format, and even about identical consumables and the same filling of the battery pack on the Ant Chip board and the capacity of the built-in battery, needless to say.But unlike the previous device, rounded shapes are more convenient, which will certainly appeal to those who do not like sharp protruding corners. The device will fit perfectly both under liquids with saline nicotine, and just under strong ones, for example, tobacco. With a fairly tight tightening with both changers, the “Charon” is perfect for this role, although the presence of some simpler adjustment system would be preferable here. I did not find any information about the composition of the liquid, which is recommended for evaporators, but I had no problems with either 50/50 or thick 70VG / 30PG, for several days I did not notice any condensation in the steam line or burnouts.The assembly and design of the case do not raise any questions, again, I liked the brushed metal much more, since it does not get dirty as quickly and noticeably as the chrome surfaces. The device is small, easily fits into a pocket, due to its decent weight, it cannot be called invisible, it will definitely not get lost somewhere in a jacket or backpack. A pleasant feature is the constant voltage that the board produces; such a simple function is not always found even in more expensive devices.
Charon Baby was presented to the world just a couple of weeks ago and has not yet managed to get to vape shops, but it can already be purchased from the manufacturer itself for $ 36.99, which I would not call an adequate price tag.
