The Item you have pictured above is what I thought I was buying it would have been an exact replacement to what I currently have. It’s a 3-AA battery unit as described in your description. What was sent was a 2-AA battery unit with different mounting base.
Very happy seems to work as designed
Bought to replace exact same unit. Old unit reached 7 year life span. Was able to mount to ceiling using existing mounting bracket. No hole drilling in ceiling hard to find the exact same detector. Walmart online had it. I used this kiddie in my unfinished basement and first alert brand on main level and upstairs. Neither are made in USA kiddie made in china first alert made in Mexico. The first alert seems a bit louder during testing. But reading reviews there's more defects in first alert brand. I just wanted to use the same existing mounting brackets, and through Walmart I was able to find exact same model numbers as my old units
Ten years old when I received it
The typical recommendation is that smoke/carbon monoxide detectors should be replaced after 10 years, so I ordered this item in early 2017 as a replacement for one I had with a manufacture date of 2005. As a matter of fact, the original unit kept beeping to indicate that it was expired. When the new one arrived, I noticed the manufacture date was already nearly 10 years ago and the Duracell batteries that were included had also expired in 2013. I was very disappointed and am still waiting to talk to a Kidde representative to see if it's safe to use the unit. (They called in response to an email I sent, but it was while I was at work. I returned their call leaving my work number but it's been a couple of weeks and they've yet to call me back). The original unit saved my family of 4 in 2006 when we had an issue with a generator, so I would highly recommend the unit if you can purchase a recently manufactured one. I don't know if the problem is with Walmart.com's distributors holding their inventory too long or with Kidde putting old inventory out to its distributors.
Good But Too Sensitive
The only thing I don't like about this is that it's SO over-sensitive. Just frying some French fries (no, they didn't burn!) in a pan set off the alarm that was in the living room. It's also a pain to "hush" it when it goes off like that. It's so loud, if you don't hear it, then you must be dead.
Easy to install, maintain, and change batteries.
I've had this detector for 2 years and I've changed the batteries every fall. Not a difficult task since the attachment ring stays on the wall and you just twist to remove the detector. I've hit the test button once a year to make sure it was still working since thankfully it never went off. A couple of nights ago, I closed the damper on my chimney when I went to bed, thinking that the glowing embers weren't a big deal. Well at midnight, the alarm was screeching "ATTENTION! CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTED!" I have to to say, the beeps before the verbal alert were starting to wake me, but those words brought clarity to me instantly and I was up and out of bed opening windows! I reset the alarm and then had to go to the website to look at the manual to see what to do next. This is a great alarm for the money, and definately saves lives!
