Questions & Answers for First Alert First Alert SA340CN 10-Year Tamperproof Smoke and Fire Detector

Question

One thing it does not list is if the LITHIUM BATTERY COMES WITH THE UNIT?

Under what's included it does NOT specify whether the lithium battery is included. Some of the other smoke detectors that are listed state that the battery is not included. Could someone please advise. Thank You.

Once the battery pack is inserted, it cannot be removed,At the end of the 10 years, you would have to buy another smoke alarm to replace it. It is recommended that you de-activate the alarm buy reading the instructions on the back of the alarm, before throwing away, it isn't deactivated by removing the battery pack.

I am a Fire Official, You need to REPLACE your SMOKE DETECTORS EVERY 10 YEARS without question. IF you do not know how old they are REPLACE THEM.

ALMOST all Fire Officials across the U.S. are recommending the use of PHOTOELECTRIC SMOKE DETECTORS in your home.

Because the lithium batteries last ten years and it is the batteries that need to be replaced every ten years, not the smoke alarm. It is a lot cheaper to buy lithium batteries than it is to buy new smoke alarms.

THERE IS NO BATTERY. NO WIRES TO HOOK UP. THE CASE IS SEALED. YOU JUST HAVE TO CHANGE THE SMOKE ALARM IN 10 YEARS. CHECK THE BUTTON ON THE SMOKE ALARM ONCE A MONTH
TO MAKE SURE IT STEEL BEEPS. SCREW IT TO THE CEILING.
