Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Osprey Replaced 9 year old i12060s
I replaced existing rings and detectors that turned yellow/brown. They are supposed to last 10 years, but I figured it was worth doing it now and it looks 100% better (wife loves it).
Original installer had only one screw on a couple of the rings, so I added those while I was at it. I had one ring fall off because of this changing the battery in the old units, so lazy contractors, please put in both screws.
You can use the old plugs as long as they are the same model, but a lot of the detectors I looked at used this 3 prong plug. I like the battery door on the i12060 since some of them require you to remove the detector to replace the battery. Here's to another 8/9 years!
Took about 45 minutes to replace 5 rings/detectors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by eliz Hate replacing the batteries - not really as easy as sliding in front door
The i2060 product installs pretty easily. I have had it for two battery changes - guessing that means 3 years or so, cannot remember exactly. I HATE HATE HATE when I have to replace the batteries. I got the front door option so I didn't have to pull the thing down. I have ceilings that are over 12 feet tall. But when I simply replace the battery it still beeps. Only when I turn off the breaker, pull the thing down, disconnect it and then put it all back together does it shut up. This stupid alarm drives me mad. I would replace the thing except I'm out of town right now and having to talk someone else through this nightmare.

I can only assume it works considering that it would require a fire to really test.(a bad thought). This unit replaced one out of the six in the house that went bad prematurely ( 5 years into a 10 year warranty). It just didn't pay to cash in as I would have had to pay the return shipping to the manufacturer on a $12 dollar item.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jo replacements for old units.
Replaced two 11 year old models. Easy enough to do, base gives lots of options for screw placements so I didn't have to make any changes with screws. Just put up new bases and the old three point power connector fit perfectly to the new units. Will be much easier to replace batteries now.
