The smoke detectors started to chirp randomly at 3:00AM. Got out of bed to look for batteries at 4:00. I spent the last half hour NOT finding batteries. Note to self, "get dozen 9 volt batteries"
These are hardwired with battery back-up and taking batteries out only makes them chirp more!

  • Which reminds me ......... Batteries.

    Thanks for checking the Forum. Supreme Headquarters removed that duty from my list of things to do during the dark period and assigned me to a sleep test project. I think it has something to do with my growing need for torso repairs.

    Sleep works for me.

    That happened to me once so I yanked it off the ceiling. Even with the battery removed, no power...it still chirped. Must have a small internal battery. Filled the sink with water and dropped it in. That stopped it. I replaced it with a lithium that supposedly lasts 10 years.


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Why is it that the batteries always die right in the middle of the night while you are sleeping??? They seem to never die during the daytime :laugh: :angry:
  • Thanks SC. Don't yawn too wide you'll need "Head and Torso" repairs

    Billy,

    Dust can cause them to chirp as well. ;)
  • I'm finding out that the temperature drop ( lowered for sleeping ) affects the batteries. Cold air temps lower power output/voltage from batteries.
