I think this post needs some punctuation / bullet points to stop it reading "Continuous monitoring End-of-life alarm " :)
All Carbon Monoxide Detector Discounts, Offers and Sale - May 2020
Yeah, was a month ago. Amazon pricing for ya
On the back/bottom/underneath Some actually have an expirey date, others (mine) say replace after 5 years!! Who knew?
Currently showing at £14 for me 😔
Do smoke alarms go out of date?? Where does it tell you their life span? I shall check ours.
I just got mine too. June 2019. In two minds whether to raise with ES... It is a bloody expensive fire alarm as it is, so feels a bit of a kick to have the reduced lifespan to boot. Did anyone else get in touch with them?
What's a reasonable timeframe? 10 years from manufacture date is max lifespan. Say 2 months factory to door, so what, 9 years 10 months is a reasonable expectation at best. Based on 10 year lifespan these cost 66p ish per month. Absolute worst case you've lost 7 months (9 months minus a little bit of shelf time as you can't get a full 10 years).....equivalent to under £5 'loss' over a period of nearly 10 years.....not exactly worth stressing over.
My 2 orders arrived absolutely fine, one within 24 hrs, other within 48hrs. One small problem (with the courier not providing tracking details) was resolved quickly over the phone and they were very friendly to speak to. I'd happily buy from them again.
Let me know what you get out of customer service. Will check mine when home
The 'replace by' date is printed on the underside of the unit
Can this be fixed to ceiling? I’ve taken old round one down as it passed 10 year old and it’s left marks on ceiling I need covered up
Excellent price for this unit. I have two in the house and another in the bbq/smoke shed so that I can see when levels are rising and sort out airflow before it becomes a problem
Thank you for posting. We have added this to the Highlights section. (y)

FireAngel SB1-R Smoke Alarm amazon.co.uk/dp/B07DYPK3Y8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_qCsmRZyCnpmf
a pimp speaks.
Any CO meter is what every hoe needs. Install and hopefully you never hear it....
This was the one to buy..not available now https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/fireangel-co-9b-carbon-monoxide-alarm-450-delivered-prime-450-non-prime-3387020
One for a quid more but has 10 year battery. Just posting as an alternative, not saying its better. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kidde-10LLDCO-Monoxide-Digital-Display/dp/B00F351Q6O/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=Kidde+carbon+10+year+battery&qid=1581377719&sr=8-3
looks to be around average price.
Is there any in Leicester by any chance?
Good deal heat added. Could be similar reductions in other branches but never nationally the same as it's up to local stock/manager
No, she worked there!
Was the lady you spoke with in anyway connected to Aldi, or just a random shopper..... ;)
Hope that helps
I messaged john lewis on the day this was posted and they price matched it, but they needed to know the link before doing so, I think now that is is out of stock you'll struggle to get a price match, but they're well aware of the price b and q had on this day, as they price matched it yesterday and only changed it back to 299 when they realised it was out of stock, might be easier to say you purchased it last week and john lewis had it at 140 yesterday, they'll know the prices they've had it at. Hope you get lucky bud
I know its a long shot but did anyone order one online / In-Store and mind sharing a receipt (obviously not the the card details) I got one from JL in the last week and they will price match with a receipt of this offer as its now OOS Everywhere. In advance Thanks
You should post this as its own deal. They seem to have plenty in stock.
£3.99 to potentially save a life. No brainer.
Such a worthwhile thing to own and bargain at that price!
I went into store and I asked where I could pick them up sorry apart from chesterfield 35 in stock that’s what I got told in store
I beg to differ. That photo above was taken 3 hours ago in the DIDCOT store.
Out of stock in stores all over England only stores that have them are chesterfield store 35 in stock also none online!! Thought I’d let you all know happy shopping
But actually took a week, so was worth the punt.
They only had three left in the store I was in last night, so looks like they're selling fast.
Just visited the Cowgate Store and they didn’t have any except a single opened packet fire alarm at £2.99. I left it as it didn’t look reliable. Thanks anyway and I’ll try other stores.
Found these for £4.99 in Aldi if that helps anyone. Slightly different model number - CO-9BT. No idea what the difference is.
Cheers for the heads up bud
Memorising the drug tarrif is no joke
Same here - ordered 2 Monday for Tuesday delivery - were in baskey at £3.50 each, but charged at £18 each. Tesco helpline yesterday said it would take them up to 48 hours to investigate! Not heard back from them yet. If they won't refund the difference they're going back - only ordered because they were £3.50 each.
Technically (I think) they should have notified at the basket Or when booking a slot that the promotion price isn’t available on that delivery/collection date. They usually do that with other products and this was a rather short lived promotion too.
Ordered on Sunday for collection today to find I have been charged 4 x the price £18 each, called them today and they said as it was a promotion, which ended yesterday they have charged the the full price. Tesco will not refund the difference and if Im not happy, I have to take them back to store for a refund. I had to drive 20 miles to collect. This was my first Tesco Grocery and I will never used them again! Aldi and Lidl rule!!!. :)
Just been in and there’s plenty of alarms in stock now! Typical... I read in another thread that Aldi had them (or similar) for £3.99 but the one in Cowgate didn’t have any except a single opened packet fire alarm at £2.99. I left it as it didn’t look reliable.
cool, didnt know it does carbon monoxide too. I already have the 2nd gen and was just about to by a carbon monoxide detector
abx: Hello, how did you get yours to pair up with Hue? When I try to link it up through "works with Hue" I get a Google notice to say I need to manage via Google Home but there's no option to link them in there. To be honest mate I'm not sure as of now. When I did it I used IFTTT to do it but Google were ending IFTTT support at one time but did say if you already have it set up it will continue to work. Not sure if that is still the case, you might need to do some research into it to see if it is still possible. Shame if not because plenty of people could benefit from Philips/Nest integration. Someone Deaf maybe, someone who cannot smell maybe even someone who wakes easier to light changes than sound etc
Hello, how did you get yours to pair up with Hue? When I try to link it up through "works with Hue" I get a Google notice to say I need to manage via Google Home but there's no option to link them in there.
I have 3 of these. Well worth the money excellent bit of kit.
Pair nicely with Philips Hue. Vaping Can be a nightmare at 1am when the entire house is flashing Bright Red Lights on and off while this shouts WARNING SMOKE IN THE HALLWAY
I keep at least two if not 3 from different manufacturers. Had a dodgy gas fridge in my caravan for a bit and hence had lots. Have had one brand go off and another not so to be really safe people buy 2 minimum and preferably 3. Total of what, £40-50 every 5 years. For the life of your family it’s a no brainier.
Whilst I have sympathy with the tragic circumstances surrounding your friend's death, I don't think he is making a laughing matter about this. The "joke" is that he is an idiot for removing the battery - not that you should remove the battery. Indeed for anyone not aware of the symptoms of CO poisoning, he has just highlighted three obvious signs for people to look out for, if they weren't already aware. His joke could just save a life
The Kidde claims 10-year battery compared with 7-year for the Fireangel. I've had a few Fireangel sealed smoke alarms fail after only a couple of years - although the manufacturer was happy to provide replacements. On balance, I'd go for the Kidde.
Can anybody recommend between the posted alarm and this alarm please? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00441S9GS/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_i_4VEcEbY3ZDV9G
I’ve just got a couple of smoke alarms that are the same,it’s a good idea I think.
In my experience it's really hard to get toxic levels of CO from a wood burning fire, gas fires (back boilers even worse) are another matter I would never light one without a CO meter in the room.
Doesn't matter what you burn if it isn't fully combusting. Oil or gas appliances as well as any other fuel source wood, coal, charcoal etc can produce carbon monoxide if not careful. Just because you had smoke doesn't mean there was carbon monoxide present.
I was burning wood. Hence carbon monoxide
We've had one for 3 year and it's still going on the original battery's. Does a job I hope but temp is useful
It's not a smoke detector! It only detects carbon monoxide.
Small price to save a life.
Everyone should have one of these
They were still £12.99 in our store this afternoon.
I guess the other one with LCD monitor is better...
It's gone back up to £12.10 now.
Both still alert you if there's a dangerous amount of carbon dioxide, but the digital one gives the co reading, so you know how serious it is. Not essential, as you should always get a professional in if the alarm sounds, but it's the one I've ordered.
This is a random thing I actually do appear to need as my current one says "replace by Jan 2020". Also keen to know why the digital one is better.
Why, please? I've already got this one, should I change it?
Digital version is a couple of quid more, worth considering.
Will tick a box for those that run an Airbnb :)
Kidde own Lifesaver so it's probably he same internals for the most part.
That's the one I'm waiting for they were around £8 3months ago but sold out before I got one, im hoping they will go down during black Friday🤞🤞
Would this not be a better deal as 10 year one, it's also the one I bought us a bit back.
Maybe thinking of methane?
Dangerous advice, i suggest you do your research.
£2.99 in Rugby (Central Park) as well.
Brought same one for £2.99 in aldi
buhahha. plenty in Merthyr. on the back of box date mentioned was 2014. sooo.. 1 year left on this? (its nearly 2020 now)
Burnham on sea, as title.
What store in south west please?
All CO detectors have around 5-7 years life span (atleast any I have seen), even ones with replaceable batteries. I don't know the technical reason for this mind you, maybe someone can enlighten us.
I think it's based on a (sssh) ten year battery life .
