Worth setting a reminder in your calendar that it needs swapping in 7 years. I do it for my fire alarms and CO monitors, just in case they dont alert me. And also because it's such a long time you forget and then end up having to buy at RRP as a last minute purchase.

How long do these batteries last?

Sorry I dont have this one, so dont know. It will let you know when it needs replacing.

WRT calendar note I was talking about for 6.5 years, when the unit is due for replacement. Usually theres a replacement date on the back of the unit. Also I set a yearly reminder to check all my alarms. I know you're supposed to check them monthly/weekly, but that doesnt always get done as some are too high to reach easily.

Why would you need a reminder??? The unit beeps to let you its at the end of its use by life

As per my previous post for two reasons:

1) Just in case it doesnt alert me. I know it should, but doesnt hurt.
2) Last time my various alarms started falling I had to buy some at full retail as no offers were about. I set my reminder 6 months before they're due for replacement and that way can grab the next offer.

Perhaps not worth it for those with one alarm. But I have 1 CO, 7 Fire and 1 Heat alarm. At full retail that can get quite expensive, particularly as they are wired/linked.

I got one with a 10 year battery. I'm okay until 2029.

Just in time for brexit.

Don't be ridiculous. Brexit = end of the world, so who needs a CO alarm

LMAO. Perhaps check the facts before you post rubbish in an attempt to have a pop at someone:

"Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms must be replaced within the specified lifetime of the product, usually 5 to 10 years after the date of manufacture. Check the back of your alarm for the date of manufacturing or contact us if you need assistance."

kidde.com/hom…de/

So no you shouldn't let it run after the stated lifetime has passed just because it doesnt beep to say it needs replacing. If the stated life is 7 years, you should replace it within that time. The replacement warning system is there to warn of premature failure and to remind the alarm needs replacing, they dont over ride the actual specified life of the product.

You want to have a pop at someone, go ahead. But have the decency to do it in a way that doesn't give innacurate and potentially dangerous advice to other members.

It’s the sensors that go out of range not the batteries, but yes keep giving out your uneducated and potentially dangerous options out.

Lots have custom power cells instead of replaceable batteries, and if your are wired why not ABB mains?

Too many folk used to remove the 9v cell, to use at Xmas in toys. Double AA used here, may be removed for a TV remote, or cat laser pen!

I don't think the current BSI Kitemark allows for removable batteries. I'm sure it calls for total unit replacement.

Mine do run off mains with battery backup. My previous posts weren't regarding battery replacement. I set the reminder for the device EOL.

Yes the unit it’s self. The sensors will be out of range on the date the unit expires. So telling people it’s fine if they last a few years longer is stupid. I work in the industry and have tested alarms 1 year out of date and they aren’t as quick to sound. But I guess you know more than someone who deals with CO alarms on a daily basis huh??? Clown
Do these beep when battery needs changing.

Regardless, these having Ng double A, removable, batteries, means they fail the existing/current UK/EU safety regs.

Same here. Reserved online and hadn’t received the collection email the next day, but we were going past so went in anyway and my order had been cancelled. Apparently someone should have contacted me!
