Twin pack of EI smoke alarms including batteries for £6.25 either instore or online. Cheapest ones I could find, even for inferior ones from ebay.
Fire Angel ones we had that were fire service supplied stopped working without any indication by constant beeping. Just as well I checked them.

I wouldn't buy these replaceable battery ones as inevitable they will end up with the batteries out due to annoying beeping yearly.

Better off getting a 10yr sealed unit which you can get a free replacements.

In fact try calling fire Angel they will despatch you free replacements in the post.

I would have rather have a yearly beep to tell me the batteries needed changing than for them to not be working at all and me being unaware like the fire angel ones. I will drop fire angel an email though so thanks for the tip

The dual battery ones are good, personally I like the security of a backup battery - mine are the voice message low battery warning. Easier to ignore a beep than a message saying fire kills.
I'd like to see a Fawlty Towers version which has Basil saying "Don't Panic" when the battery is low and "FFFFFF Fire!" when the alarm goes off.

That's because as it is cooler at night then it triggers the warning then.

"This battery characteristic can cause a smoke alarm to enter the low battery chirp mode when air temperatures drop. Most homes are the coolest between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. That's why the alarm may sound a low-battery chirp in the middle of the night, and then quit when the home warms up a few degrees."

Ironically, this should lead to extreme heat
My alarm has been beeping since we've had it installed 7 years ago- replaced battery but it still beeps every couple of minutes, we're so used to it that it no longer bothers us but when we have someone stay over they don't like it, i know it works coz when i burn anything in the cooker it goes off- not sure if i should get new ones installed?

Definitely get new ones.....try even calling your local fire service and ask them for a home safety check. They will even put the adequate amount of alarms you need and all for free

ALL of our fire angel (supplied by the fire brigade)smoke alarms did NOT work, this is from years ago they would just chirp instead of an alarm, so they are still supplying killer smoke alarms
Check yours today
Fair play to Fire Angel, sent them an email and they are sending replacements FOC.
They are £9 now, heat anyway
