Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the independent third-party agency that tests CO alarms, requires an audible warning to alert a consumer when an alarm is expiring. Kidde CO alarms sound this end-of-life warning after seven years, while Kidde's new Worry-Free CO alarms are the first and only UL-listed models to last a decade. In addition to the longer life, the alarm contains a sealed-in lithium battery that also powers the alarm for 10 years, eliminating the need to replace a battery or hear a low-battery chirp for a decade."Kidde's Worry-Free alarms meet UL standards and offer hassle-free protection," said Chris Rovenstine, vice president, sales and marketing, Kidde. "Addressing the frustration caused by low-battery chirps may help reduce the number of poisonings that occur due to alarms with dead or missing batteries. Since smoke alarms also should be replaced every 10 years, having the same replacement time for your CO alarms makes it easier to remember."
