Battery life

The MEINTAL has an integrated rechargeable battery. This must be recharged. The seller specifies a standby time of 500 days. This seems very promising at first glance, but in most cases you don’t use the device just to leave it lying around somewhere. A running time of 4 weeks is specified for active use. This is not quite reached, but it all depends on how much you use the device every day.

Handling/ease of use

The Prothelis finder is quick and easy to connect. As it is a battery-powered device, the installation cannot be compared with a fixed connection. All you need to do is find a place to install it. Plus points would have been awarded if good tips for fitting had been described.

Größe und Gewicht GPS-Tracker Vergleich


The size is 12 x 5.7 x 2.1 cm. This makes the GPS tracker a mid-range tracker. It is small enough to find a good hiding place. You only need to pay attention to the installation location, as the device cannot transmit everywhere. You have to try things out here.

Conclusion: MEINTAL from Prothelis

In its price class, the MEINTAL from Prothelis is only partially convincing. The functions and precision definitely deserve a positive mention. However, it is still worth a look as an introduction to the world of GPS devices, as it is easy to use and if you have any questions, you can contact support quickly and easily. If you can overlook the minor weaknesses, it is a solid candidate for GPS tracking.

Battery does not last 500 days!

The advertising with the up to 500 days is misleading! I set the shortest frequency (10 s) and after two weeks the battery only had 15% left. The operating instructions are only available on the Internet.
