3.0 out of 5 stars Pay attention........, 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: EUROSONIC Pack Of 3 Smoke/Fire Alarm With Batteries Eurosonic Branded Uk Product (Electronics)
This pack of 3 smoke alarms arrived well within the stated times, so no problems there, however the description given on Amazon is confusing as they are advertised as PHOTELECTRIC alarms in capital letters and "ionization type" later in lower-case letters.
So what are they? They are IONIZATION TYPE alarms. As such, they are less of a bargain than they would be if they were photoelectric.
If, like me, you want to assemble something before you try to do it on top of a step-ladder you should know that the body of this alarm will not connect to the mounting base unless a battery is installed (the battery depresses a catch which allows the thing to clip together..). It took me a good ten minutes to figure that out as there are no fitting instructions (however there is an informative leaflet about locating the alarms.)
The units themselves are small and unobtrusive, fixings are included, just the standard two screws plus wallplugs and batteries.
Three stars only, because the dodgy advertising spiel implies they are something they are not and fitting instructions should be clearer.

Ionization smoke alarms are generally more responsive to flaming fires.
How they work: Ionization-type smoke alarms have a small amount of radioactive material between two electrically charged plates, which ionizes the air and causes current to flow between the plates. When smoke enters the chamber, it disrupts the flow of ions, thus reducing the flow of current and activating the alarm
