Battery News:   
A smoke alarm's batteries are a key operational component, and economising 
on this is very much a false economy.
Kidde's sealed battery alarms all use premium quality Fuji lithium cells.

Kidde's Engineering Department carefully evaluates all critical components,
and for that reason chose the best performing battery we can find for our application:
there may be cheaper options from unknown manufacturers, but we won't risk those.
The ones we specify are made by Fuji (FDK) of Japan; make sure your 
alarms, have a battery brand from a company with a known pedigree.

Click here for Fuji's Battery data sheet, as we install.

Their capacity meets our criteria of execeeding performance margins by 10%,
so we anticipate you'll get more than 10 years life from Kidde; however,
it's good practice to change alarms after 10 Years service.

The Ten4 is now complemented by our unique TenYCO , 
10Year Battery CO Alarms:
