What is good in X-Sense 10 year battery smoke and carbon monoxide detector? Dentists say you should floss your teeth every day, mechanics suggest rotating your tires every 3,000 miles, and the US Fire Administration says to check your smoke detector batteries at least once a month. This is one reason it’s nice to have a 10-year battery on your smoke detector. While you should still check it for overall functioning every month, it won’t run out of juice on you if you don’t. But not all 10-year smoke alarms are created equal. Many of the cheapest 10-year devices out there use simple ionization sensors. But the X-Sense 10 year battery smoke and carbon monoxide detector uses an advanced photoelectric sensor. While this is still not as good as having a dual-sensor alarm in your home, it’ll still alert you to both smoldering and flaming fires.
