The smoke alarm uses a 9 Volt carbon-zinc battery. The battery should last for at least one year under normal operating conditions. The smoke alarm has a low battery indicator, an audible "beep." It will operate at 30-40 second intervals for a minimum of 7 days. When this indication occurs, replace the battery with an Alkaline type (Eveready Energizer #522, Duracell #MN1604), CarbonZinc type (Gold Peak #1604P, Eveready #216).
