Customer Questions & Answers

Battery Change

Is anyone else having trouble changing the battery? The battery is in correctly, but I cannot get the "Battery Reminder Finger" to stay down.
Asked by: nothandy
Hello Nothandy. Take the battery out of the alarm. Push down the red lever into the battery compartment while the battery is out. While holding down the red lever, put the battery in on top of the lever. That should hold the red lever down.

Not available in California? Why?

This is exactly what I want. If I can't buy it in CA is there another battery operated photoelectric smoke alarm I can buy?
Asked by: Bhjulian
Hello Bhjulian. California has codes requiring battery only smoke alarms to have sealed in 10 year batteries. You can purchase the P3010L Model: 21009663, Internet/Catalog: 203525026, Store SKU: 144239 and can use that in California. It has similar features with a sealed in 10 year battery though the bracket is completely different. We are Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your interest.

Customer Reviews

Battery Operated Photoelectric Smoke Alarm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fills a basic need Inexpensive basic smoke detector. Not dual detector style as is often said to be best. I am using it as a fill in unit until I upgrade and reinstall more advanced units. Uses regular battery. Not ten year type. Still worthwhile in proper setting and with proper use and battery changing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says! Excellent kitchen smoke alarm! Since replacing our old one that went off any time we sauteed anything in our kitchen, this one stays quiet but goes right off when we test it with an open flame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For me the best choice Chose this because I wanted low cost, photoelectric, and a replaceable battery. It replaced another Kidde with a so-called 10 year sealed battery that lasted about 5 years and typically started chirping about battery failure at 3 AM. I have programmed my iPhone to remind me to preemptively replace the 9V battery in 2 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product comes with everything you need to hook it up. I was very surprised to find out that it comes with everything you need for a hard wired smoke detectors. It also comes with a red cap so you can paint and not have to worry about painting your smoke detector.
