No more battery problems
2 Sep 2014
By
, Gloucestershire
"Trying out the new technology with an ionisation smoke alarm. Always had trouble in the past with the awkwardness of changing the battery. This model comes complete with a power pack which will last for ten years - a marvellous thought. It also gives a regular flash to show that it is working. Simplicity in itself."

Security with peace of mind
22 Aug 2014
By
, Grimsby
"The alarms were bought to replace two cheap ones that needed the batteries replacing so often that it became tedious. We seemed to be living with the sharp "beep beep" every few seconds. The new ones were fitted in about ten minutes, tested, and in silent operation. With a battery life-span of 10 years, We should finally get some peace, and relax knowing we are safe. Money well spent in my opinion."

"The fire-brigade fitted one of these free for me.. but it went wrong after a year and gave a continuous alarm that could not be turned off.
I replaced it with the identical model from Screwfix as it would just clip back onto the original baseplate. I assume it is normally a good, reliable product if it is fire-brigade approved, and I was just unlucky.

Excellent and easy install.
25 Nov 2012
By
, St Albans
"I found this a neat item, it looks unobtrusive and was really easy to install with all fixings supplied. Only had it in place for a few weeks so no soundings yet but the ten year battery life is the best feature. We were having problems with the old alarm consuming betteries at a high rate, usually ending during the night."

"A very good product, and easily installed.
Unobtrusive in appearance when installed. An easy positive test procedure, Although performance and reliability have been given a five star rating, this has been based on the fact that all other functions are first class, just hope it does not have to be tested for real.

"We use these in let properties (when the landord doesn't want to pay for the cost of installing mains units) as the tenants cannot take the batteries out to put in the kids toys."

Great Product but........
8 Nov 2011
By
, Horsham
"I bought this as a replacement for one that has failed after one year.
Superficialy a great product for my old mum. She expects that the 10 year battery will last longer than she will.
So very dissapointed with a failure after one year. I have read reviews of similar failures.
I bought a replacement because it was less hassle to fit it to the existing mounting plate.
Fire Angel need to sort out waht seems to be a quality problem

Random Bleeping
14 Aug 2011
By
, Falkirk
"First one I had in the hall after a few months started to random bleep which indictes low battery. The battery is inbuilt and unaccessible. However this is mains operated and should recharge when mains power is on. I replaced it with the same model and after a few months it is now doing exactly the same. It looks like they have a problem with the life of the inbuilt battery. Really annoying as it bleeps all day and night."

Poor product
30 Aug 2013
By
, dundee
"I've had this fitted for around 18 months and it has now started beeping randomly when there is nothing to set it off. It seems to be a common problem. On paper it sounds great, 10 year battery, but if the product itself only lasts a year and a half then what's the point in the battery lasting a decade? I also have the optical toast proof version which so far has been perfect."

Unreliable smoke alarm
30 Aug 2012
By
, London
"I had three of them - FireAngel - installed by fire brigade and both failed after less than a year. A short blipp indicated the end of its functioning, and now I am replacing the whole lot.
I would not recommend it as do not feel safeguarded by it."

Random beeping
7 Aug 2011
By
, Hampshire
"I bought six of these for the whole house, and four of them have randomly gone off (two ore than once) - all in a no smoke/fire situation, including one in the small hours. Not impressed - am planning on returning the whole batch, as there seems to be a fault with them. (Previous alarms never had this issue so don't think it's environmental.)"
