Whilst I do agree, I'll still be looking for these. I'm moving house soon, and as I won't know about any problems yet I plan on sticking these in 3 rooms that 'could' be affected. I can't afford 3x£20 but I can afford a quid.

I got four Fireangel smoke alarms from Tesco recently (a couple of months ago) and all of them frequently give false alarms at any time of day but most often at night. Needless to say that they're incredibly annoying.Three of them are 10 year battery life ones, one of which has packed up all together.

They are very cheap but my experience is that the quality and reliability reflects it. I don't particularly feel that confident that I will be able to rely on them in an emergency.

ta v much

Jumpingphil, I can't stress how right you are!

You wouldn't get a smoke detector that changes colour the more smoke there is would you?

Unless you have an alarm that makes a noise, it's just not worth having! Ask any gas engineer and they'll say the same. Go to B&Q and get a proper alarm. I think that £20 is a very good price to pay for an early warning against CO2 poisoning!

Cold - save your money:

Scenario 1 = Not having this detector

->Walk into room full of Carbon Monoxide.
->Drop dead


Scenario 2 = Having this detector

->Walk into room full of Carbon Monoxide.
->Say "ooh it's changed colour it has"
->Drop dead


At least with (1) you have a bit more dosh for your funeral. Think of the kids for gods sake.

never understand why these get hot votes even at this price.

Hot, no pun intended :thumbsup:

I've posted this before... But - I've had a carbon monoxide problem previously and the National Grid Gas engineer who came out said that I might as well have had corn plasters stuck on my wall as we'd have all been dead before these things changed colour.


HSE website

Does HSE recommend the use of carbon monoxide alarms?HSE strongly … Does HSE recommend the use of carbon monoxide alarms?HSE strongly recommends the use of audible carbon monoxide (CO) alarms as a useful back-up precaution but they must not be regarded as a substitute for proper installation and maintenance of gas appliances by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. Before purchasing a CO alarm, always ensure it complies with British Standard EN 50291 and carries a British or European approval mark, such as a Kitemark. CO alarms should be installed, checked and serviced in line with the manufacturer's instructions.You can be particularly at risk from CO poisoning when you are asleep, because you may not be aware of early CO symptoms until it is too late. Having an audible CO alarm could wake you and save your life.

CO not CO2.

The clue is in the prefic MON (one) OXIDE ( oxygen).

They are both poisenous, but CO is as dangerous as cyanide, CO2 is much less so , and the effects are easier to reverse.

Thanks for this

Thanks for posting this deal. I went direct to Kidde on eBay who are selling powered CO alarms for £9.99 each at the moment. Now that's a bargin

Rep for poster, but cold for deal.

It seems this is what these people were using, see page two of the report. Two deaths which could have been avoided.

^^ What he said - False sense of security - spend a few quid on something that makes a noise^^

I have been on this forum for a long time, but never posted yet. I have met this woman. Please read this.

These so called CO detectors (colour change cards) should be banned for lulling people into a false sense of security. These will not wake you up from a CO induced sleep. They would not have save Dominic. Please get a proper CO detector with an audible alarm.

Please spread the word and support Stacey's campaign to get an audible CO detector in every British home. What better Xmas present than to save someone's life.

People are being really unfair in this, assuming they are for household use and condemning them. That's not what they are for.

They are sticky-backed and will go in places where you wouldn't spend all your time but might suffer CO exposure. I have seen them used in light aircraft cockpits, truck and plant vehicle dashboards and tractors, in places that face the user. Under hatches on motorised equipment such as generators etc, unattended machines, these give tell tale witness signs that there is or has been raised CO levels. Places that aren't ideal for electrical items. They are also good as highly portable items to carry whilst travelling.

I agree they are not ideal for domestic use, but try and think a bit beyond your own gas boiler - it isn't the only possible CO source in the world.

The drawback for these is that they are limited life and need replacing regularly.

But hot for the price because they used to be a tenner for 2 years ago.
