Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RetiredEE Electrical plug same as old Kidde unit - used new mouniting base. Mount with "A" line horizontal and battery vertical.
Old Kidde units had light, but replacements were $$$. So got 4 without a light for $12.50/unit. These also had the identical 3-prong plug connector, so it was easy to replace. Unplugged old units and plug in new units., no wiring required. I did have to change the mounting base, which was included. Old mounting base didn't fit new unit - but just loosen two screws and put on new mounting base. The 3 wire system Red-White-Black, for power and interconnection with other smoke detectors worked fine. The directions are multi-language, so it will be easy to miss reading "there is a "A" line scribed inside the mounting base. Make sure the "A" is right side up and the scribe line is horizontal. Mount the smoke alarm so battery door is vertical and on the bottom when mounted.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Larry Kidde Smoke alarm w/battery
In March 2016, I purchased two 4-packs of Kidde Smoke Alarms with battery back (battery included). I used them to replace every smoke alarm in my house (installed in the same month). Early this month(Sep 2016), the alarms started chirping indicating battery needed to be replace. I replaced the Kidde provided battery with a newly purchased non-kidde batteries and it solved the problem. I called Kidde and attempted to explain the issue. They wanted all sorts of info from the boxes (who keeps a smoke alarm box). Info off my Home Depot receipt was not good enough. If you buy this product, either keep the box or use a reputable battery instead of the included Kidde. In the future, I will buy only products where the vendor at least makes an attempt to solve the problem.

Fire alarm is a replacement for existing alarm. All electrical connections match perfectly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BurntUp Extremely difficult to replace batteries.
The detectors install ok and work ok, but replacing the batteries is very difficult. The sliding cover is extremely hard to close, and the detector will beep until the cover is fully closed. Some of the covers are also hard to open. Poor design and quality on a moving part that needs to be accessed twice a year.
