Although the price to energy ratio for Amazon batteries is excellent, I highly recommend you don’t use them in your smoke and CO detectors.

My CO detector decided to alarm, not chirp, at 1:30 am last night and scared the bejeezus out of me. It only alarmed for 5 seconds or so and did not do it again, but I new it was my CO detector because I woke to a flash of bright white light and our smoke detectors don’t have lights.

I replaced the batteries in both CO detectors and we didn’t have another issue. I last replaced the batteries just 4 months ago.

As I sat wide awake for 2 hours I had time to order Duracell batteries on Amazon. Nothing but Duracell in our detectors from now on.
