Answer: 
No, battery operated. Photoelectric is a type of sensing. Everything I read recommends that you have both types (photoelectric and Ionization). Photoelectric is for smoldering types of fires what sense smoke; Ionization is for flaming types of fires.

Hello. In reference to your question, this alarm uses photoelectric sensing technology. Leading authorities recommend that both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms be installed to help insure maximum detection of the various types of fires that can occur within the home. Smoke alarms are devices that can provide early warning of possible fires at a reasonable cost; however, alarms have sensing limitations. Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with fast flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible fire particles (associated with slow smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms. Home fires develop in different ways and are often unpredictable. For maximum protection, Kidde recommends that both Ionization and Photoelectric alarms be installed. If you have any further questions about this, you can call us at 1-800-880-6788.

July 3, 2014
it chirped, i found the little door you push and it opened and the battery is sitting there looking at me, waiting to be changed, but i can't figure for the life of me how to get it out of its little pocket. the piece of plastic that acts as the latch also holds the battery in place and doesn't move. i don't want to break anything so i don't want to force it too much. what am i missing, here? i just moved in here and there is no instruction sheet to be found.

Answer: 
You have to grab the battery firmly by the sides and pull hard. The plastic piece that is holding the battery in place is rounded on the bottom to allow it to move above the battery when it starts to come out.

Answer: 
You should be able to grab the battery and slide it right out. It's squeezed on the sides so there's a little friction but not much.

Answer:

Remove the battery and purchase a new energizer. install the battery so that the contact of the battery (silver posts) are facing outwards. Close the battery door and then hold down the test button for 3 seconds. The unit should go into alarm. If not the battery is in backwards.
To remove the battery, just tip the unit to the side and the battery will fall out

Answer: 
this unit is battery operated and the batteries should be replaced as recommended, typically every six months. The unit itself is supposed to last 10 years, before the carbon monoxide sensor is no longer working. This unit will tell you when that time is up.

Hello. In reference to your question, it sounds like the new battery is not powerful enough for this alarm. It HAS to be a new Duracell 9 volt models MN1604 or MX1604 or Energizer 9 volt model 522 battery. The battery HAS to have a good use-by date on it of at least 3 or 4 years out, of at least 2019 or beyond. Try using a new Duracell or ENergizer alkaline battery with a good use-by date of at least Read More

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is a difficult product to review. Hopefully I will never need to test it's performance. I like the front load battery, combo alarm, hush button and 10 year warranty. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Battery Operated Combination CO/Smoke Alarm This is a well known brand to me. It had all the features I wanted and was easy to install. October 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smart purchase... these alarms have come a long way since I was a kid...make me feel a lot safer. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worth it these smoke alarms were easy to install. they have a build in battery that doesn't need replacement for 10 years (in which point we will get new alarms). July 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by so far so good with the battery operated smoke and carbon monoxide alarm! The alarm was easily installed and easy to check the battery life. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value skoke & Carbon Mono detector Easy to install, tests are easy too. Ordered online and they arrived within a few days. Nice! May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dual Alarm The Kidde combination smoke/co battery operated alarm with voice alerting you of what danger it has detected in your home so there isn't any questions when awaken from a deep sleep with the simultaneously ringing siren. The preferred location of installation is on the ceiling, but I didn't want to install on a textured surface so mine was put on the wall. The placement needs to be between 4-12 inches below the ceiing when installed on the wall. It's simple to understand the instructions for both operating and installing. April 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this talking Smoke/CO alarm! This combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm with voice is a great idea - now I don't have to worry about counting beeps and what the beeps mean because I can clearly hear the explanation of the functions. It tells me if the alarm is for a fire or a carbon monoxide warning. That is awesome! I love the idea of a combination alarm instead of all the separate ones we have around the house. Although I prefer my hardwired alarm, this battery operated type is great for those areas where power is not available, providing peace of mind at any location. It was very easy to install, and the backplate fit perfectly over my old installation. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. The beep chart is printed on back of the unit so you can check it easily. It will chirp and tell you when the battery is low also or when the unit needs to be replaced. I like that the expiration of the sensor is after 10 years of use. The voice is a pleasant woman's voice that will state either "fire" or "warning, carbon monoxide" and the light flashes red or green depending on the type of alarm. It comes with the 9-volt battery installed the and mounting screws. April 4, 2014
