Before anyone says they are a waste of time as hardly anyone dies from carbon monoxide poisoning i would like to say that ours was going off the other day and i had the rayburn checked and a plate was loose inside causing the fumes to go a different way, even if the amount wasnt high im sure it doesnt do you any good.

The reason i say this is because when i got mine from lloyds and it was posted on here, some people said they were a waste of time as it was highly unlikey that carbon M was going to be a problem

P&P is £4.95 or free delivery to store if over £25.

Voting hot 'cos of the price, but why do they call it portable when it clearly has screws and fixing so that it is screwed to the wall or ceiling.
Hardly portable.


err, maybe because it is small and you don't have to use the fixings unless you want to.

When I moved into my current home, I bought a Carbon Monoxide detector as I'd experienced low-level poisoning in a previous home where the landlord's agents hadn't properly maintained the boiler. It started going off in the early hours of the morning, so I got in touch with the then-landlord and his engineer came and checked it out. My boiler was fine, but it turns out that the boiler in the apartment across the corridor from me was faulty and its Carbon Monoxide was entering my apartment!

Moral of this story is that if you are living in a building with multiple homes and boilers, don't assume that just because you keep your boiler properly maintained that all your neighbours do similarly!

Should be made law like smoke detectors in new builds

Good price, i paid £10 for one from B&Q on Sunday - Will get another for this price

Nice find

Not good for EVERY home - seeing as I don't have any sort of gas supply nor open fire, it's pretty pointless for me. A must for people with gas supplies though.

Where do most people put these? Right next to the boiler?

I put mine about halfway between my home's ground and first floor. Near enough to the boiler and the likely flow of any CO gas to be effective, near enough to sleeping areas so it can be heard if asleep.

but you might move in the next 25 years, in which case you will tormented by the £6 deal you could have scored right here

None at the Glenrothes store, but good price if you can get one

But also advisable for anyone with an integral garage - run the car inside it (cold day starting?) for more than a minute or so and CO will very likely enter the house.
