If someone buys it and it raises the slightest suspicion then for £1.21 it will be worth it!

But then thats all people will rely on, spending a few quid more on a battery operated one is alot better , you can get them as cheap as £10 now , and there was some in Tesco for £4.99 but think that offer has now ended i think

I agree for areas where people live/sleep I would go for a battery operated one but to take on hols or to use in the airing cupboard then these seem useful :thumbsup:

£10 to save a life not allot is it ?

What if you have a incident when you are asleep, the stickers wont wake you up, then its too late.

Sorry guys, VERY POOR.

These little fellas give you a false sense of security - they don't wake you up in the night to tell you that the coloured dot is changing.

Spend a tenner.

These things are useless and a waste of money, by the time they've changed colour you'll already be dead with carbon monoxide poisoning. Spend 9.97 on the electronic one, if you're worried about the gas then an extra £8 is well worth it.

Where are the electronic ones £10? After one myself

Tesco have got a half price sale on a load of their smoke and monoxide alarms.

Tescos have most of the Fire Angel Smoke and CO2 detectors at half price. I bought a triple pack - smoke, co2 and remote handset from Lakeside for £31ish - half price from £62ish

the instructions on the electonic ones say the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are at very very very low levels, sickness and headaches anything higher DEATH. Pointless taking chances with this, sorry the excuse about not everyone having a tenner doesnt work with me, most people have a tenner they just spend it on something else.............

and I know I will get flack for saying that

There's loads on eBay, if you do a search for "carbon monoxide alarm". You'll probably want to avoid the ones sent from China, but anything with the CE stamp should be reliable enough.

I'd rather get one from a proper shop tbh. I was in Tesco a few weeks ago looking for the £5 ones but they were marked at £15. Pretty sure these disposable ones were £5 at that point so might go in and have a look. Just curious where the £10 ones are that people are claiming as ebay are a bit hit and miss on pricing

From what I've read, before buying electronic ones, these patch things are useless - because by the time they register too much Carbon Monoxide you've already been poisoned. They're a bit of a con, they may work - but you'll be dead

Aye, fair play. I guess there's not much sense in risking your life for the sake of saving £3, is there?

Aye. Plus, the electric ones give you an alarm as soon as levels pick up. With these, you've just got to hope that you remember to check the coloured dot at regular intervals. And since it goes dark when it's failing as well as when it detects carbon monoxide, most people will probably not be that bothered when it turns dark at some point during the winter. Especially if they're feeling tired and lazy. Feeling tired and lazy are, unfortunately, two signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, if memory serves true. So anything without a loud alarm can be bad, bad news.

I dont disagree if you have £10
Maybe you should understand how some people live!!

Shengis Lloyds pharmacy always have them (online and offline) at £12.99 or two for £20 :thumbsup: ]http//ww…iew

Seriously though these from the OP are a total waste of your £1.21, We had a Carbon Monoxide issue and were breathing it in for too long to even think back upon.
The emergency National Grid UK gas man saw we had one of these and laughed... he said "You'd have been dead for a good day or two before these even think about changing colour"
He had nothing to sell me - just giving his educated opinion

Still, on the + side if they haven't got £10 they probably can't afford to run a gas fire so are relatively safe from CO:giggle:

I bought a Kide one that malfunctioned in less than a year from this lot... Was quite suprised and cost a call from the gas board

As I said at the bottom of this thread:

hotukdeals.com/ite…e=4

I managed to pick up one of the £4.89 electronic ones from Tesco yesterday for £2.44! Just make sure you get one with the barcode ending in 332.

Very poor and soon to be phased out. Even at £1.21 its a waste of money :x My advice is to buy a decent one whilst they dont come cheap they are reliable!

Original Poster

There are a lot of people making assertions about the patches being unreliable, being phased out etc, a quick search on google reveals very little evidence of this and lots of places still selling them (at a much higher price), so I think people just need to be aware that they are silent indicators so dont install patches in areas where people sleep or live but other than that they have got to be better than nothing and if you want to take on holiday as a indicator when you arrrive that your apartment is not billowing out CO then I would argue that for £1.21 it is worth it!

It's not an assertion when you've been told that you might as well stick a corn plaster on a video card it'll be about as useful.
I respect your opinion but experience has surely changed my view on these as they merely give a false sense of safety.

back in the garage with my ******** detector, carbon monoxide making sure it's effective
