The kit is a genuine Ei Electronics product and contains the alarm head, a removal tool and the simple guidance required to quickly and safely replace your smoke alarm head. The smoke alarm base with the wiring is left on the ceiling in this process.
The simple installation process of the easichange replacements kits negates the need of an electrician.

The following technical data sheets are available for this product:
Q. Can I upgrade an existing Ei140 series base with a Ei160 series smoke alarm?
A. Yes, the bases for the Ei140 and Ei160 series are identical units and are interchangeable.
Q. Do you supply a tool to remove a mains powered smoke alarm from the base to replace the backup battery and the replacement battery required?
A. Unfortunately we do not sell the Easichange tool separate to the kits, however you could also try a small flat head screw driver once the mains power has been cut off from the unit. We do sell the 9v lithium longlife batteries required for these alarms. http://www.safelincs.co.uk/FDK-Long-Life-Lithium-Battery/

Fitted well but one has given erroneous alarms,okay now. On one occassion one of the alarms would not stop giving erroneous alarms, so we took it out for 24hrs. Replaced it back on the base and now seems okay.

Excellent product and couldn't have been simpler to fit. Bought it to replace the ionisation version as it was reacting to cooking smells just outside the kitchen. So far seems to have done the trick. Manufacturer could make it clearer which easichange units work with which base units but the safelincs chatline was excellent in advising me.

As easy to fit as the name implies: simply locate the lugs in the back plate and slide into place: 10 seconds flat
