Fireangel Carbon Monoxide Detector CO-9B £2.25 in store at Tesco

50
Found 24th Oct 2011
Fireangel Carbon Monoxide Detector
Model: CO-9B

Normally a cheap option but at such a low scanning price I bought two today. The supervisor even fetched the second one for me.

Comes with two AA batteries in the pack so you can unpack and use straight away.

Shelf-edge price of £8.50, scanned at £2.25.

It may be useful to state which Tesco since this is store specific.


Not necessarily. Look out for it in your store and you *might* hit the jackpot. More chance than winning the national lottery, and loads of people play that.

Since these normally only last a specified length of time, something like 5 or 10 years?! it's worth getting one if you have had one a few years.

Not often that £2.25 can potentially save you and your family's life! Hot!

I don't buy a lottery ticket but I have about the same chance of winning as you...lol
Cold because this price almost certainly doesn't exist.......

Hot because it almost certainly does, the OP has been around nearly 5 years so not likely a troll and Tesco are always reducing stock randomly to clear shelf space.
just checked my local still scanning at £8.50
This is a must buy, I had the very same one, and one night it alarmed, sure enough we had a carbon monoxide leak that we had no idea about, saved all of us, including our baby.

Do it now.

Its worth noting you want one of these by every gas fire and gas boiler that your house has.
I just bought one of these at my local Tesco, last week - I was fairly happy at the normal price of around £8! Annoying timing but happy to pay £8 for a bit of peace of mind.
Get one if you can, a very hot deal.
Cold from me, as have seen at £8.50 in about 6 diferent Tesco stores!!!
I never understand why posts for items at stores that only a few people can visit alays get voted SO hot. Yes if you're in the right area it is very hot but I bet most of the people who have voted this hot don't stand any chance at all of actually getting the deal.
I won't vote it cold as it IS a good deal IF you can get it but amazes me how many people vote for deals they can't get!

Whats the fuel cost driving between stores?
I am the CEO of Tesco's and can confirm we have paid long-term posters on HUKD to plant such bait
Good price of you can get one. I have this one or one very similar and I think to cost me around £10. x
Some CO detectors work by measuring the colour change of a little card you put in the reader, and these cards are not cheap and have to be changed every 6 months to a year?

Please can you confirm if the posted model needs one of these?

thanks

p.s. they look like this:

p.p.s. £5 is a small price to pay for your safety.

Checked Guildford and it's still £8.50

This appears to be battery powered, with a note on the packet saying it expected the battery to last 12 months. I didn't buy one so can't confirm if the unit can be opened to replace the battery when it dies.

It didn't make any mention of refills or other accessories required.
Eyes in many places, I'll say no more!...

Doesn't need a refill. Does need replacing every 5 years though. It takes standard AA or AAA alkaline batteries - nothing special. Ours came with 2 included. You can wall mount this but works equally well on a shelf too. If this offer is nationwide. super hot! Even at £8 or so though, it's hardly expensive given it can save your life.
cheap and nasty - i prefer to pay 16-17 and know the product works and protects my family
These were listed as half price at £8.50, so initially they were at least £17. I bought one yesterday, wasn't £2.25 but still happy with the price I paid

These are not cheap and nasty. The cheap and nasty ones are those cards with circles.

just checked my local still scanning at £8.50



I bought one of these today for £8.50
I bought one last week and I can confirm you can replace the battery's every year the unit is guaranteed for 7 years from switch on hope this helps .

I think you are confusing the battery operated devices with the £2.50 card type which hang on the wall and change colour when you are being gassed. These are only good for six months once opened.
Not a lot of good if they are turning black overnight and you are sound a sleep in bed

No battery electronic devices have to be fitted with cards

Don't get out of bed in the morning - that's cheaper.
Thanks!
has anyone apart from the OP actually managed to find this for the deal price?

I can only see people, myself included, finding it for £8.50. I got it price checked at the tills, so not just a shelf price.
Scanned at £8.50 in stockport
Checked the product in-store using a self-scan console in one of the aisles at Tesco Beeston Nottm just an hour ago and it comes up at £8.50 and not the fantastic £2.25 the OP got.

As it was, the £8.50 was yellow ticketed as half-price offer, so perhaps the lower price was a pricing glitch and not available elsewhere?
not likely at mine but will take a look

If you like to test, stick it at the end of your car exhaust while running the engine, or run your engine in the garage with the door closed and this inside.

You probably won't be getting out of bed ever again if you have a CO leak.
£8.50 at Birmingham Spring Hill - I bought a couple as needed them and the price seems cheap compared with Amazon, etc.
Bought this the other week for £8.50 and it was a dud. Kept beeping every minute instead of flashing. This is meant to indicate a low battery, but it was the included brand new ones. Tried it with other fresh batteries and same problem. Ended up returning it for a refund. Probably a one in a hundred dud, but I wasn't pleased considering it's a home safety item and a faulty one could potentially cost lives.

Having said that, great price if it's in many stores, but until I find it in my own Tesco, I'm not going to vote one way or the other. People voting cold for this reason miss the point entirely.

Don't exagerrate the risk, over a 12 month period there were around 50 recorded incidents involving CO poisoning in the UK and 25 deaths. Compare this to almost 250,000 injuries and over 2,500 fatalities each year from road accidents.

By all means buy a detector though as for a few pounds it's better than taking the risk and these figures don't take into account the effect of low levels of CO poisoning that could hurt peoples long term health.
£8.50 at my local - the same as everyone apart from the OP. Still the cheapest, but the post needs to be amended.
