Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Use of backup battery in case of power outage
The unit switches to backup battery power in the event of a power outage in your home and resumes normal electrical operation when power is restored. As a result, battery use is greatly diminished, and you may not have to replace batteries as frequently – still, it is strongly recommended that you replace your smoke detector batteries at a minimum of once every 12 months. This smoke detector requires a single 9-volt battery for backup purposes.
