Dupont Smoke AlarmNo need to worry that your Christmas tree may overheat if you keep it up a little too long this season. DuPont has devised this innovative smoke detector that screws into ceiling-mounted sockets and rids you of that bothersome chore of replacing the battery. Its AngelEye technology contains an internal self-charging power pack, so that all you have to do is turn on the light in its own socket on the bottom. It also sounds an alarm if the charge is low.
