Best Apple AirTag accessories

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

In April of last year, Apple released a tracking device called the , a Tile competitor that allows you to track down objects like wallets, bags and keys using Apple’s Find My app. A  (£29, AU$45), while you can get a four-pack for $99 (£99, AU$149). Alas, it doesn’t come with any sort of holder — you just get a naked disc — so that means, depending on your use case, you’ll need an accessory for what is also, essentially, an accessory. (Apple products tend to spur their own cottage industries for add-ons, even if they are accessories to begin with — are a good example.)

In some cases you’ll be able to embed an AirTag into an object sans holder — just pop it in a purse or backpack, for instance — but some people like to keep an AirTag with their keys or attach it to a backpack or laptop bag. You may also want to stick your AirTag onto an object and plenty of AirTag mounts are available. 

Note that CNET editors have tried most but not all of these accessories. If we haven’t tried a product, we’ve tested other accessories from those companies so we feel comfortable recommending them. We’ll be adding more AirTags accessories to the list as we test new products.

Key chains and straps

Belkin

Belkin’s Secure Holder for AirTags comes in or versions in four color options. There’s nothing terribly fancy about them, but at $13, they both cost less than Apple-branded options shown below. You can also get a two-pack for .

While it launched a little later than some AirTags accessories, Otterbox’s keychain holder, which Otterbox calls a “Rugged Case,” is made of solid plastic and does indeed encase your AirTag (you unscrew the top piece, place your AirTag in the case, then screw the top piece back on to lock the AirTag in the holder). It’s available in black or white for $20 but is currently on sale for $15.

Amazon

While this faux leather key chain from Cyrill, a sub-brand of Korea-based Spigen, is nothing fancy, it’s currently available in stone and black colors for $17.

The Apple-branded leather key ring costs $35 and comes in three colors: black, saddle brown and red. 

Amazon

If you’re looking for a value option, your best bet may be to roll the dice on a no-name brand on Amazon. This Eusty key chain cover is available in a 4-pack for just less than $18. Often, generic models like this are labeled as “leather” when in fact they are faux leather (sometimes referred to as PU leather or vegan leather). These look a lot like other basic faux leather AirTag key chains and comes in a few color options.

There are dozens if not hundreds of generic AirTag holders available. Most should be fine but don’t expect them to wear as well over time as the true leather models. 

David Carnoy/CNET

Caseology’s AirTag Vault is another straightforward key chain option that’s affordable at $15 but could shave a few dollars off its price over time. (Caseology is also a sub-brand of Spigen.) It’s one of the few AirTag accessories that was available at launch and has been pretty popular as a result. It comes with a carabiner but you could attach a standard key chain if you wanted. It should be back in stock fairly soon.

Amazon

Spigen is also selling an attractively simple key-chain AirTag holder, the Valentinus, for around $18. It’s made of faux leather. Alas, it’s temporarily out of stock but should be back in the next few weeks.

Amazon

If you’re looking for a holder that sticks onto an object (like the underside of a bike seat or scooter), Pelican’s Stick-on AirTag Mount is designed to do just that. A single mount costs $20 while a pack of four sells for $40. It’s available in four different colors. 

Apple

Apple’s Loop, made for attaching your AirTag to a bag, costs as much as an AirTag. But it’s Apple’s official loop option and this polyurethane option is cheaper than the leather . (That doesn’t make it a good deal, but I’m just pointing it out.) It’s available in four different colors.

Nomad

I like the design of Nomad’s leather AirTag key chain better than Apple’s, which leaves the AirTag partially exposed. This AirTag key chain hides it and looks more like a standard key chain. It’s designed to “weather” over time, getting darker (particularly the brown version). It’s available in brown or black for $40, which is pricey but it is nice.

Nomad also makes a Leather Loop that’s also a key chain and lists for $25 (it’s on sale for $20 at launch). I prefer the more expensive model pictured here. 

Spigen

Spigen, known for its value iPhone cases, has its AirTag Case Rugged Armor ($25). It’s not quite as cheap as we hoped it would be, but maybe it will come down in price in time. It does have a rugged design with a nice carabiner and carbon-fiber elements.

Want to keep track of your glasses? (Yes, I often misplace mine.) Nomad’s Glasses Strap for the AirTag is the way to do it. Ingenious, although not cheap at $35.

David Carnoy/CNET

Casetify has a wide variety of AirTag holders. They’re made of hard plastic and are fairly basic but have some eye-catching art on the backside. You can also customize them with your name or choose from several emojis and other graphics. They’re expensive at $35 but sometimes go on sale.

Nomad

If you’re looking to AirTag your pet, Nomad’s upcoming Rugged Pet ID Tag fits the bill (Nomad’s AirTag Keychain is essentially identical). According to Nomad, it’s constructed with a TPU-overmolded polycarbonate shell and comes with two enclosure options: an IP67 waterproof back and a speaker-hole back. For an extra $20, you can buy a customizable stainless steel insert cover that you can get engraved with your pet’s name and a way to contact you. No pet collar is included.

Alas, the Rugged Pet ID Tag and AirTag Keychain don’t ship until mid-August, but Nomad is offering a discount for preordering. 

It’s worth bearing in mind that Apple says AirTags are not designed to track pets. Your pet would need to be within range of the Find My network for the AirTag to work, so if it runs off into the woods it won’t be much help.

Other AirTag options

Moment

Moment, which makes and sells photo and video accessories for Apple products, including lens attachments, will have an enclosure accessory that allows you to mount your AirTag. “Made from a rugged aramid fiber shell and backed with a super strong adhesive, you can stick an AirTag to any flat surface,” Moment says. It’s currently backordered but should be available soon.

Moment also has to other mounts: ($15) that’s made out of flexible silicone (rubber) and can adhere to surfaces that aren’t totally flat; and the ($15) that’s designed to stick to fabrics, such as the inside of a bag, and other flat surfaces. Both of those mounts also ship in July.

Amazon

If you don’t want to spend $15-$20 for a mount, these Gorilla Mounting Tape Squares are a cheaper option at $8 and can be cut to size for AirTags. AirTags have an IPX67 water-resistance rating, which means it can be fully submerged in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes and is dust-proof. So it can withstand some punishment without a cover. After all, it doesn’t have a screen.

Amazon

The AirTag uses a CR2032 coin battery, which should last about a year. You can find a 10-pack of those batteries on Amazon for less than $10. That’s the way to go, especially if you have multiple AirTags, and other devices that use CR2032 coin batteries.

Always remember to keep coin batteries away from small children so they don’t accidently swallow one. They can cause major injury if ingested.

    UK's Mulberry gears up for Christmas as sales rise to pre-pandemic…

    Nov 24 (Reuters) – Mulberry said on Wednesday demand for its luxury products is back at pre-pandemic levels with sales in the UK and Asia powering a 34% surge in first-half revenue, as it prepares to benefit from the holiday shopping season.

    The company, which was forced to cut 25% of its staff in 2020 due to weak demand, said sales trends have improved in October and November, but warned that any restrictions during the festive period could affect its upbeat outlook.

    Best known for its leather bags, Mulberry has benefited from store reopenings in the UK, with strong growth in Asia helping it offset weakness arising from the absence of tourists in the domestic market and the closure of some stores in Europe.

    Earlier this month, consultancy Bain had predicted that the luxury goods sector would rebound this year from the health crisis due to higher spending in the United States and China, particularly on high-end shoes, leather goods and jewellery.

    Mulberry said over the next six months it will spend more from its “substantial cash reserves” on marketing to build brand awareness worldwide.

    The company said its UK factories and careful planning has helped it navigate supply chain issues even though it flagged a slight increase in inventories of raw materials since March.

    Group revenue for the six months ended Sept.25 rose 34% to 65.7 million pounds, helping Mulberry report profit before tax of 10.2 million pounds compared to a loss of 2.4 million last year. The profit includes a one-off gain on disposal of a lease in Paris. (Reporting by Chris Peters in Bengaluru; Editing by Arun Koyyur)
