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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wes Easy to install, easy to understand
Very easy to install if you have a basic understanding of electrical. My package did not come with wire nuts or mounting screws for the mounting/dust plate so be sure to get some if you do not already have them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SeaJay Easy to install, but had to make another trip to Home Depot
I had to replace battery operated smoke detectors with interconnected hardwired smoke detectors with battery back-ups in order to pass inspection for a rental. I was surprised to see that they did not come with screws to attach to the junction boxes! There were no wire caps either. This meant ANOTHER trip to Home Depot and lost time. The frustration factor is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
