    I am glad amazon did not prohibit the shipping to california, where i live, because i am absolutely convinced that our clueless legislators have created a public safety hazard by forcing the sale of smoke detectors to rely on 10-year (non-replaceable) batteries.

    Because i had new smoke detectors installed in my home and because the push to test feature worked, i could have been clueless for as long as 10 years that they were in fact inoperable units.

    I thought it was a fluke that neither of the kidde smoke alarms went off since they were located in bedrooms (not the kitchen).

    Again, the new kidde smoke detectors with 10-year batteries failed to emit a single chirp.

    Further testing would reveal that even burning a paper towel with a lighter an inch away would not provoke the kidde smoke detectors to sound an alarm.

    To change out batteries on daylight savings as is the usual practice with a conventional smoke detector — the more likely it is that consumers will miss the fact that a) their device is defective or b) 10 years has lapsed and the battery is dead.

    I hope other states do not follow california's lead and that this dual-sensor smoke detector is not discontinued.
