Smoke/carbon alarm

Aldi again

Kidde smoke and Carbon monoxide alarm good price £16.
Did read somewhere that you should replace smoke alarms after 10 years (maybe why they give them a 10 year guarantee and/or 10 year battery)
anyway the one in my caravan is not 8 years old so think for £16 will replace it.

Dont think it does any harm to replace (for peace of mind) and Kidde are a well known manufacturer of fire safety equipment

Mine in the house is a talking one and it runs on AA batteries. This is the second one I've had and I 'think' the old one told me that it was due for replacement - not sure though?

I think most types chirup when battery change or end of life is reached.
