Looks like a good price for this model - You get 2 one with an ionising sensor and the other with an optical sensor, So an upstairs and downstairs alarm with the optical one ideal for the kitchen area. £6.99 + 99 postage = £7.98
Not much considering the job they do

This twin pack of smoke alarms are by leading fire safety brand FireAngel. One of the smoke alarms features an ionising sensor whilst the other features an optical sensor and is less sensitive to cooking fumes including toasting. Easy installation, simply attach the back plate to the wall or ceiling, screw on the alarm and away you go. Both are cream and have a large stop/test button in the centre for ease of use. This product does not require batteries as it uses an internal power pack. It also includes fixing screws and wall plugs for wall and ceiling mounting. This product has a warning alarm every time the power pack is getting low. This product is certified to BS EN | 14606:2005. Dimensions: (Height) 3cm x (Diameter) 13cm approximately.

Perfect. We had a small fire about 6/7 years ago and the fire brigade stuck one of these FireAngel alarms on our roof before they left. If they are good enough for them, they are definitely good enough for us. Optical for outside the kitchen is ideal too
£40 on amazon. Looks like a great deal!
The fire brigade put four in for me and all ended up in a bucket of water to shut them up. If you look at the amazon reviews you will see lots of people think they are great just after buying but just as many that say that like mine they started bleeping for batteries (which are not replaceable) after a couple of years and wouldn't shut up. A good price if you want them for 2 years but don't plan on them lasting more than two if my experience is anything to go by.

Same thing happened to me, the fire brigade fitted 3 in my house in 2012; 2 of them failed in 2014 and the final one in 2015. I took one apart to see if the battery could be replaced, it could if you're handy with a soldering iron but a replacement battery of a decent brand cost £1.40 so I didn't bother, I binned them and bought 3 new ones of a different make, with replaceable batteries this time.

Ordered ..many thanks for posting
Fire brigade fitted 3 of these in my house. 1 of them failed after 2 years, the other 2 are still going strong some 6-7 years on. Apart from a quick hoover with the crevice tool periodically and test twice a year (When the clocks change seems to be the one I remember), these are fit and forget. As these are later models I reckon you should be fine. Also just keep the receipt and Fire Angel should replace if you have any issues. Given I got mine free from the Fire brigade, it's a bit tricky to get a replacement. Also the relatively low cost of these means they are at least as cheap as normal smoke alarms and won't need a PP3 every year or so. Thanks OP.
I have also previously had some installed by the fire service - when they failed (like others after only 2-3 years) I simply rang the number on the bottom of the alarm, quoting the model number and batch id and they sent me replacement ones within a few days. This however only works if you haven't already binned it due to its incessant noise

On the roof!? Not much good there unless its to warn you if the weather gets a bit misty. Or did you mean on the ceiling?

If you're really going to post pedantic language corrections, I suggest you first check the definition of the word that you are correcting:

en.oxforddictionaries.com/def…oof

roof
NOUN
1.1 The top inner surface of a covered area or space; the ceiling.
‘the roof of the cave fell in’

Got these today, package is actually 10 year alarms but expiry date is 2022, so yes 5 years, but looks like old stock.
