    Anyone know of a good source to review the capabilities of several different brands of carbon monoxide detectors?

    I'm looking for something that will alarm before the level becomes too dangerous for a few minutes of exposure. I assume most of them will save your life but I suspect there's only a few that will alarm soon enough to prevent hospitalization.

    I don't have a subscription to CR. I was lookin' for sumpin' free.

    I ended up ordering one of these: http://www.kiddeus.com/utcfs/ws-384/...46%20Sheet.pdf It looks like it won't alarm as soon as I'd like, but the display will indicate the current CO level even if it's not high enough to alarm. Good enough for the garage where my space heater is.

    I have something similar in my shop. Displays current level even without it being enough for an alarm. Seems to work well. Start a bike with all doors closed and it will get a reading quickly.

    WMUR Channel 9 in NH did a test with the State Fire Marshalls office in NH and found the Nighthawk is the only one that actually functioned properly and accurately...

    I use a Kidde Nighthawk that does CO and gas detection. I haven't tested the CO portion of it but it does a great job at detecting propane in the air.
