FAQs (2)

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/

Exactly what I ordered. Only 1 "removal tool" (i.e. pen screwdriver) supplied between these 2 orders. Did someone pinch the second one?

Two minute replacement on old base I had six smoke alarm detectors wired through the house. They had reached their replacement date. I bought these new tops which plugged onto the old bases. What is more, I can replace that rechargeable batteries on these, so I won't have to go through the same process again.
