Why's it Dead?
Heard the distinct chirp of a "low battery" warning from a smoke detector this morning. I just had my alarm system installed a couple of months ago, including a smoke/heat sensor with a lithium battery that is supposed to last 5 years! I was a little upset. Until I discovered the chirp was from my OLD smoke detector. How did I go THREE YEARS on this battery?
