TappyBLE UID-Only NFC Reader

TappyBLE UID-Only NFC Reader


Another member of our family of Tappy readers, this one boasts the same speed and ease of use as our other models; but with a main difference: This one is built specifically for the purpose of reading the UID* from NFC tags.  With this as its sole function, this reader comes at a lower price point without sacrificing quality.  Consider buying and trying it today!   

(*UID stands for "unique ID" which is a number embedded natively into every NFC chip during manufacturing. This number cannot be edit or changed, which makes it useful for distinguishing the tag that the chip goes into, from another tag.) 

What you get with the TappyBLE UID-only reader:

  • Read the UID from the most popular NFC chips (ISO 14443 A/B, Tag Types 1,2,3, and 4.)
  • Total technical support from TapTrack, the engineers who created Tappy.
  • No cables required!  Connect to your Android or iOS device wirelessly with BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy). 
  • Provides up to 8 hours of battery life while in use.
  • Connected over Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) , but capable of operating standalone (check-in station mode)
