Unhappy Customer 85168168 - 2 months ago

I bought five of these two years ago. Within the past month three of them have failed. They don't last anywhere near 10 years. The guarantee is complete rubbish too - you need to keep a receipt for a smoke alarm of the manufacturer is not interested.
I'm going to replace them with normal smoke alarms with replaceable batteries.

AWFUL smoke alarms

We bought two of these. Within a few months one kept beeping and we took it back to B&Q with the receipt and they replaced it for free. Now a couple of years on and it beeps when it's too hot or too cold - when our thermostat says it's above or below a certain temperature it starts beeping every so often and drives us crazy. When we went to B&Q this time they wouldn't take them back and said we needed to post the products back to the manufacturer at our own expense. Don't see the point - if we received another two in the post then we'd get the same problem. Don't waste your money and buy a different brand (although we noticed that B&Q only sell FireAngel products - why?).

The best detector I've ever used

My detector had just started chirping, indicating that the battery was running low. I was really annoyed,as I thought I'd only used up about 6 years of the claimed 10-year battery life. However, when I removed it from the ceiling and checked the installation date I'd marked on the back, I found that it had been working faultessly for just under 11 years!! Doesn't time fly when you're having fun! Maybe I was just lucky, because so many others have complained about a short battery life, but I have no complaints on that score.

I bought two of these and had the same problem with both, i.e. the ten-year batteries packed up within a year.

The first time it happened the company sent me a replacement alarm, no questions asked. The second time I had to return the alarm to them, at my own cost, and cover the postage for a replacement to be sent to me.

Now it's happened for a third time and I've binned them both (at my local re-cycling centre), and I'm replacing them with ones that cost half as much, but take ordinary batteries that I can replace.

Such a poor design

My own fault for buying this item- what a mug! The alarm can only be activated when attached to the supplied base plate- what is the advantage of this? The alarm is sealed so you can't change the battery- again, what is the advantage?
I spent 1/2 hour fixing the plate to the ceiling. I was not too impressed upon fitting the alarm it didn't work! Back to B&Q for a refund.
