I own a small mobile home park. I decided to buy 10 year smoke detectors due to new insurance rules, specifying I had to check the batteries once a week, which is ridiculous. I received the alarms but all it says on the packaging is that the alarm is guaranteed for 10 years. It also states the lithium battery doesnt need to be changed as much as a regular battery. So is the battery guaranteed to work for 10 years or not? What am I supposed to show the insurance company now? Definately false advertising on this product. Other products from different companies specifically say the battery is guarenteed to work for ten years, but yours doesnt unless you go online to see your product desciption. Call me if you have an explanation for me... 352 299 6926
The manufacturer of the battery lists the battery as a long-life 10 year battery. What First Alert has found is that due to the battery being in a safety device with a high low-battery threshold, there is a strong likelihood the battery will only last 4-5 years. If the battery does die sooner than the 10 years, you can call First Alert directly and they will send you another battery.
Despite this being a long life battery, it is still recommended by First Alert, the Red Cross, and many other safety organizations that you check your alarms once a week just in case a problem does arise.
Thank you for choosing First Alert Store and have a safe and Happy New Year!

I had seen plenty of reviews on the web complaining about the battery dying after a few months. I figured that most satisfied people dont write in. So I bought the alarm anyway, thinking that I would take a chance since I would save the cost of many batteries over the 10-year life. What I did not anticipate is how poorly the product is design. Since the true test of the alarm is when a fire occurs, I hope that function would never be tested. But the only two thing that could go wrong were in fact so. First, the instructions stated that the battery should be put in with the + and - terminals coinciding with the markings on the housing. After a long examination, I found no markings anywhere on the alarm. If it was there, it certainly could not be seen. The writing was barely visible because they were white on white with absolutely no contrast. I have very good eyes, and I could make out the writing. But the terminal markings were nowhere to be found. Im pretty handy, so it was obvious which way the battery should go. But I never found the confirmation I sought. After that, I twisted the alarm into the the base. Well, actually twisted it, and it went up against a stop. But it was completely loose. I live in California, and any trembler would have knocked it onto the floor. The only way around the problem is to put in the locking mechanism, which then secured the alarm against the base. But would I remember that I had done that 10 year from now when I plan to replace the alarm? Or if I sell the house, would I remember to tell the new owner about what I had to do to secure the alarm? He would blame me when he has to rip up the ceiling to get it off. My no-name Fire Sentry alarms that my contract had put in snap in perfectly. So do the other First Alert alarms the I had put in recently. Whoever designed this decided to redo the mechanism apparently never looked at how previous one were done. He or she decide to reinvent the twist and put the product into production without ever testing to see how it works in practice. For a company like First Alert, the oversight in these two aspects is absolutely inexcusable.

Excellent value and reliability. Pays for itself in savings on batteries over the life of the smoke alarm.
