    Default Aldi combined smoke/monoxide alarm 17.99

    Found myself in Aldi today.

    Noticed the above alarms.

    Feedback seems good.

    I got a similar one a couple of years ago. It was prone to sounding around 4am quite regularly. Close study of the instructions showed it was not suitable for boats or caravans. Aldi's returns policy is good.

    I'm still puzzled what is special about CO on boats that a domestic alarm is no use. The only factor could be humidity but that's rarely exceptionally high on board and here in Argyll, it' can be very high in domestic situations!

    I think it's probably just a simple matter of certification. It will cost manufacturers to get the additional BS EN50291-2 certification for caravan/boat use, and they may not think it's worth it.

    I have a Fire Angel CO-9D on the boat, a neat little device, and certified for boat use. https://www.safelincs.co.uk/fire-ang...onoxide-alarm/

    combined smoke and co alarm`s are not safe enough and the bs rating is for the parts inside suitable for marine enviroment the only co alarm`s i fit are honeywell they designed and spec suitable for domestic and marine and i fit quite a few and only ever had issues with 1 in the past 10 years use but only single types not combined its on the gas safe website for suitable types
    honeywell type are only about 15 ish plus vat so not alot saving considering it a safety issue
    also i would only ever fit cell type and not battery as salt enviroment is a issue

    in my opinion
