Visually it appears to be identical to the original. Everything fits seems to be a good product.

Best thing about coronavirus is rapid delivery by UPS. This helped immensely with turnaround time on annual inspection.

Dont know what to say other than it has 7 years life and looked like the one I took out. It had enough energy in it to do the annual test. The last one lasted the 7 years. Well see about this one.

Shipped promptly, battery marked with an expiration date 7 years in the future (2025) so it was a recently manufactured one. Artex says battery should be replaced on or before 6 years after it is installed so it should go the distance. The install kit contains instructions, a new gasket and a couple of extra screws in case you loose one.
