Commencing July 1, 2014 under SB-745, all smoke alarms including combination smoke alarms, that are solely battery powered shall contain a nonreplaceable, nonremovable battery that is capable of powering the smoke alarm for at least 10 years. This is a slight extension as this change was going to be effective on January 1, 2014. There are also EXCEPTIONS: This section shall not apply to any smoke alarm or combination smoke alarm that has been ordered by, or are in the inventory of, an owner, managing agent, contractor, wholesaler, or retailer on or before July 1, 2014, until July 1, 2015. The amended law is in Health and Safety Code Section 13114.
