Why Indian Smoke Detector Companies using an Alkaline battery instead of Lithium battery

Smoke alarms are designed to give information regarding any fire incidents happening in the designated area of the fire alarms. Nowadays we had seen a couple of fire incidents due to poor wiring and no fire detection facilities or non-working fire facilities in the building premises.

Many Indian fire alarm manufacturers are offering Smoke detectors with the alkaline batteries which are offering approx. life of 6 Months to one year. But the main question is whether any building authorities are inspecting and changing the batteries at regular intervals. On the other hand, a dead battery turns the alarm into little more than a piece of plastic.

The answer is big NO…

The reason for going with Alkaline batteries to save the cost, But is the battery cost is more important than the life of the people. So we are urging companies and people please don’t compromise with safety by using alkaline batteries.
