I see lots of reviews with the battery dying early. Is there an expiration date on the package somewhere, that I can check, before I even install?

Asked by: Sharon
Yes, there is a date of manufacturing, and there is also a location on the detector to write in when you activated the power source upon initial installation, and a place to indicate what the anticipated 10 year replacement date should be, theoretically. However, as with other detectors, this one will provide intermittent beeps to alert you to a low battery condition. Fire Protection specialist.

How hard is this to mount?

I want to replace this with the one in my upstairs hallway ceiling. which i believe has 2 this difficult to mount? im looking for something east to install..
Asked by: Nikki
Hello Nikki. This alarm has one screw in the center or three small screws near the center instead of 2 screws far apart. If this is replacing another battery-only smoke alarm, you should be able to us this alarm in that location though the old screwholes may be visible. However, this alarm will not fit onto an electrical box and will not replace a hardwired alarm. We are Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your interest.

Worry Free 10-Year Hallway Sealed Lithium Battery Operated Smoke Alarm with LED Escape Light is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from "10 year battery" only lasted one month Very disappointed in this smoke alarm. It was installed and then 3 weeks later the alarm started to beep once every minute which signifies a dying battery. You cant change the batteries either. They are sealed in. Thank goodness I found my receipt because this one is going back to the store!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ALERT! is sounding for no reason Installed this smoke alarm on 1/14/2014 but started sounding false alarms in 7/2015 pushed the hush button which worked the for first false alarm then two days latter the alarm sounded which this time was at night and worked great for awakening the restful people inside the house to evacuation mode then to realize with relief it was a false alarm and the unit would not hush or stop even tried compressed air to no effect so I turned the switch on the backside of the unit that is permanent off not off to on. I read the instructions for proper placement before installation so this unit may be faulty someway so the battery may last 10 years but the detector lasted 19 months in my case

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ARE you KIDDEing ME???? NOT worry free Picked this up to replace the regular battery operated smoke alarm we had. Bad decision. This unit is supposed to be good for 10 years -- hahhahaah jokes on me ;) It's been less than 1 year since I bought the unit. It started giving false alarms a couple of months ago. The first time, I pushed the "press to hush" button, vacuumed and sprayed w/ compressed air. Thought the problem was solved. NOT. A couple of weeks ago, my neighbor texts me to tell me another neighbor hear the alarm going off "all day". And now it's broken. How did it break you ask? I accidentally dropped it on the counter about 10 times. Then stepped on it -- oops. To shut it up. The "push to hush" DOES NOT WORK. Has no effect. I tried accessing the switch in the back, but the noise was too much for my ears.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage I've bought 4 of these 10 year Kidde alarms, of the 4, one died after 1 year and 1 month another died today 2 days short of 2 years. I'm just waiting for the other 2 to die. I would suggest anything but this alarm. 1/5th the actual length is not a bargain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Customer returned I bought 2 of these units 11/2014 specifically for the 10 year battery and the light. I decided to install them last night. Neither package had been opened prior to my opening them. One of the units had been bought and returned by a prior customer. They had written the date of 12/24/2013 of installation on it and the same date as having been replaced. When I opened the second unit I found it had NO light and no wall attachment plate. Obviously, someone switched them. This makes me wonder about the manufacture's/distribution of these units in general. I will replace these units and hope HD believes my problem with both units. I've had these units before and highly recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peace of mind for 10 years. Good to have a Smoke alarm that does not bother you about changing the battery. Those battery chirps can be really annoying. The smoke alarm works well and the LED ESCAPE LIGHT is a great safety feature to have. My biggest grudge with the smoke alarm is the mounting hardware which was a bit challenging to mount on a popcorn ceiling.Intentions were right but the design is faulty. Once installed then it is set for 10 years (as stated on the box) We will have to wait to validate :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure I would recommend these Purchased 2 of these in October 2013 to replace old smoke detectors. In December, 1 failed (constant alarm, would not hush, when set next to another alarm not sounding it continued to go off). We are returning it for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK Model P3010H installed in my hallway for about a year. Began to alarm but nothing is causing false alarm. I even placed a First Alert model next to Kiddie and Kiddie again misfired bit FA was silent. No fire, no gas, no cooking smoke, etc. Contacted Kiddie and gave me run around. Told me to vacum unit. I vacuumed uint and it again had false alarms. This alarm with the lithium battery in my oppinio is junk and can not be trusted. The internet is full of reports of the same issues yet Kiddie does not think there is an issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from my hallway Purchased the ten year alarms for the photo electric technology that has been receiving a lot of news for being a better sensor. This unit has a light when activated for late night alarms to see in the dark. Has worked well since purchasing. Bought combination unit for kitchen and 2 voice units for kids rooms. No problems with units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install and peace of mind Got this smoke alarm to replace a very old one with a dead battery. The main feature that drew me to this unit was the 10-year battery. Most 9v batteries in other alarms I've used only last about a year and always seem to start chirping in the middle of the night! Out of the box I was impressed with the ease of Installation for this alarm. There is a plastic circle mounting bracket with a self-tapping plastic toggle. You will also want to use the supplied screws and anchors to keep the bracket from turning. Once the bracket is installed you twist the alarm onto the bracket and its activated. If you don't use some extra screws then the bracket will turn making it difficult to get the alarm to lock in properly. This install took me a couple minutes and seems much more secure on the wall than the old metal bracket my old alarm used. The test button on this model is also about 2" across. I was easily able to press the test button from the ground with a broom handle so testing this unit is very quick and easy. The old alarm had a small button and took a ladder to reach so it didn't get tested as often as it should have. Finally, this unit has a small LED light to provide some illumination which seems very handy to me in the case of an emergency especially if there was a power outage. Overall, I'm happy with this alarm since it was easy to install, has a long life battery, and comes from Kidde who has a good reputation in the fire safety industry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NOT ten year battery! Just bought. Searched for battery expiration date on package like I have seen on any other kind of batteries, including auto. No date visible. Manufacture date (only AFTER opening package) was seven months ago. Batteries can not be replaced. When re-stocked, new are certainly going to be placed in front of old, and not rotated. Emergency safety light seems somewhat dim. I hope unit works if there ever is a fire. Photoelectric units (which this one is) are supposed to be better than ionization type. I have seen a spray can for sale somewhere that produces a mist to check smoke alarms.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 of 3 is junk Purchased a package of 3 Dec 2014 and placed them in laundry room, kitchen and hallway. Came home Mar 2, 2015 to one in hallway sounding alarm. Turned it off and it re-activated a few minutes later. There was absolutely no smoke in the house. I switched the alarms from laundry room and hallway and the former hallway alarm sounded again. I switched it off permanently and threw it out. If the remaining two alarms fail in this manner I will also toss them out. Am replacing the bad alarm with another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smoke alarms The installation was easy what you have to know is that the one screw simple install did not work for me i had to use the other three screws to keep the unit locked in place. I did not use the molly's just screwed it in to the sheet rock it is very simple just use all the screws and you will be great .My old alarm always went off they were very sensitive with these new ones no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal on these easy to set up alarms I had to wait awhile because they were sold out. It was worth the wait. PROs Easy to install...REALLY easy 10 year battery life? amazing Led lights are enough in the dark A non-obnoxious light blinks every so often so you know they're working CONs Need power tools and a chisel to get the package open (not really but it was tough)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are safe now During Christmas Holidays we nearly had a catastrophe. Our tree lights caught fire due to inappropriate extension cord. Fireman said it was a good thing it was in daytime. Our fire detectors were outdated and not working. I got these. We are safe now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice unit, bad mounting option This is a nice unit and provides the light I need to find my escape door. I would use the 3 screws and anchors if I was to install another. The plastic screw that you are supposed to be able to use to mount the attaching bracket broke the first try. I had a similar drywall anchor and used that. Nice try, poor execution on the screw.
