Starting April 1, it will be illegal to sell smoke detectors with removable, replaceable batteries in New York state.
The law was adopted in 2016 but it gave retailers three years to comply.
The law requires that battery-powered smoke detectors sold in the state must come with batteries that last at least 10 years and cannot be removed.
