SDI SOLOA10 - Smoke Detector Tester, 4.8oz Can Reviews
Submitted on 12/30/2020 Alarm Grid
The SDI SOLOA10 is 4.8 oz container of smoke that is used for testing smoke detectors. The can includes a nozzle that you attach, and then you spray the smoke into the vents on your smoke detector. The smoke detector should then activate, indicating that it is functioning properly. Before doing this, you want to make sure to put your system on test mode, as you might otherwise cause a false alarm on your security system. This smoke detector tester works quite well, but it is a rather small can. The small size aside, we still give the SDI SOLOA10 a 5-Star rating.
There are some key positive aspects that we like about the SDI SOLOA10. For one, we have found that the smoke inside the can is very effective in testing smoke detectors of any variety.The device is easy to use, and it includes clear and easy to understand instructions right on the can. The included nozzle makes it very easy to direct the smoke to the desired location. The product does not leave any harmful residue, and it is both non-flammable and non-toxic for the safety of the user. We also like the bright blue cap that makes it easy to identify and locate the container. And while the product is from SDI, it works with smoke detectors from pretty much any manufacturer.
There are not many downsides for the SDI SOLOA10 Canned Smoke. The biggest downside is that the can is quite small. It is only 4.8 ounces. Although most people only use this can of smoke a few times per year for testing, they will probably still be buying a new can every few years because it is just so small. But that aside, we can still confidently give the SDI SOLOA10 a 5-Star rating.
