“East fit smoke alarm”

published 15/10/2009

ProNo need to keep replacing batteries

ConsYou need a suitable light fitting in the right pla...

I am sure we all know that smoke alarms for the home are a great idea but unless you live in a new home and have one wired in then you need to remember to replace the batteries regularly. My smoke alarms are now quite elderly (20 years+) so I started looking at the options. I discovered that...

ProDoes what it says

ConsNone

We moved into our current home just over seven years ago. When we purchased it, the previous owner left behind various items such as dirty old carpet (yuk) and 1970's curtains (double yuk) and two perfectly serviceable smoke/fire alarms. Of course we have worked through the house, redecorating...

WE all know smoke alarms can save lives but do we all have one, and more important one that actualy still works. How often do we remember to test it or replace the battery?. How often do we get false alarms when cooking and decide its easier to dis-connect the battery?( something we should never...

Not for me

published 16/04/2008

I purchased two of these devices in December 2007, plugged in the first one and it worked fine, but didn't install the second one in another part of the house until a couple of months later. The second one would started chirping within a few minutes of the initial 8-hour charging period being completed and would not charge. By this time I had lost my receipt, so I contacted Fire Angel directly, who told me although they give a 10-year guarantee, without a receipt they can do nothing. Unless you want to keep a till receipt for 10 years, I suggest you buy something else.

I've had mine for about 3 years and the battery has stopped recharging and so I was gettng a continual beeping. Removed device from light fitting last night and it is still beeping 24 hours later. On the detector it says "replace detector by the year 2013". Unfortunately, didn't keep the packaging. 3 stars for 3 years.

FireAngel PS101 - It is an ionisation type of smoke alarm so may not detect slow burning fires. That was news to me. It has worked well for a couple of years but then the battery life has gradually decreased until now it will not last more than a few hours after the light has been turned off. It...

The Fire Angel PS-101 is a brilliant idea, but does tend to give problems after some use. I installed two in 2002, but within 4 years one of them was giving full-volume beeps although adequately recharged - and the only way to silence was with a hammer. Bought a replacement (pair!). The other one...

ConsVery short life

I bought one of these from B&Q about 18 months ago. Seemed great to begin with, but for the past few months it no longer holds a charge, it's fine if you leave the light on constantly but turn the light off and within a couple of hours it starts chirping so you're forced to switch the light on...

Satisfactory

published 30/10/2008

Purchased two of these two years ago and unfortunately they started to continually chirp due to the batteries not charging. As this is a safety device the company would do well to stand by their guarantee or just give the product a two/ three year guarantee instead of asking the customer for a receipt. I'm quite sure there could be a strong case here for trading standards, after all peoples lives depend on them! It's a shame really because the concept and ease of use is very good but I would recommend the purchase of another brand...
