FAQ

  • Everything depends on the product you buy and how much time you use it. The battery life of a GPS tracker often ranges from 15 days to eight months or even longer. However, many things can make that number change. Battery-wise, how often the tracker shows and updates location data is one of the most significant factors to consider. Using other features such as real-time tracking, geofencing alerts, or two-way communication can consume more battery power, too. If you want to optimize your GPS battery life, you should use power-saving modes and turn off unused features. Extreme temperatures can reduce battery life, so keep your tracker in a cool place.
  • GPS trackers are not compatible with all chargers. Not all of them have the same power source. Sometimes, the tracker's internal battery requires a specific charger that comes with the original product. Something similar happens with specific GPS trackers that use external power or solar energy. Apart from that, trackers can use different charging ports such as USC-C, Micro USB, and others. The manual that the tracker comes with should include the type of charger the product needs. Spy Spots newest GL320MG uses a USB-C charger.
  • The time GPS trackers take to be fully charged depends on many factors. One of them is the battery capacity of the product. Trackers with larger capacities will naturally take longer to charge, but will last longer. Some charges have a higher wattage than others, which lets you charge the device faster. However, you shouldn’t charge your tracker with a charger with an extremely high wattage since it could damage it. It's common for average trackers to take two or four hours to be fully charged. Devices with larger battery capacities can take up to eight hours.
  • We would say that the best material for a GPS cable is polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material is one of the most common and affordable choices on the market. It has decent durability compared to others. Many people also use Teflon for their GPS cables sometimes. It’s a more expensive choice but offers higher durability and resistance to extreme temperatures. If you don’t want to use any of the two, polyurethane cables could work. It has a decent balance between affordability and durability.
  • Although you could damage your GPS by using a charger with a higher amperage, it’s not something that is recommended, for long term use. GPS devices often regulate how much current they draw from the charger, so it will use the same regardless of amperage. Besides that, even if you buy a charger with a high amperage, that’s not always the rating it will deliver. Most times, the amperage rating on a charger shows the maximum current it can deliver, not the one it will push out when you plug it. You should always match the voltage of the charger you pick with the one the GPS requires. The product’s manual specifies that.
  • Since GPS trackers are not compatible with all chargers, it’s often a nuisance for people to get a charger for a tracker with a rare charging port. Therefore, these chargers support adapters in certain situations. Regardless of that, you should only go for connector adapters. There are no options on the market that can boost the signal of a GPS or its cable length, so don’t trust products that offer that. They could damage your tracker.
  • There are several safety concerns you should consider when you charge your GPS. The first is picking a charger compatible with your tracker to avoid damaging it by forcing it. Charger quality is also fundamental since unbranded products could represent a fire risk. Most GPS trackers will come with a charger. Contact the product’s manufacturer to get a new one if you lose the original. The environment where you charge your GPS tracker is also important. Do it in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated place. Areas with extreme temperatures could damage the GPS battery. Avoid flammable surfaces such as carpets. Avoid wet and damp environments.
