Choosing a Travel Co Detector


When traveling, it’s easy to overlook a few essentials—but the right Travel co detector can help ensure your safety. Several incidents of carbon monoxide poisoning have occurred in hotels and vacation-home rentals around the country, and because the odorless gas can’t be detected without a monitor, it’s important that travelers bring one along on every trip.

How do you detect carbon monoxide on vacation?

A variety of different travel carbon monoxide detectors are available, but to find the right one for your needs, prioritize size, weight and features. Here are a few of our favorites.

This carbon monoxide monitor by Lunarlipes offers great comfort in a small package. It’s lightweight, comes with two CR2032 batteries installed and can be placed in your carry-on or checked bag. If you choose to pack it in your carry-on, make sure it’s not using a lithium battery, which is not allowed on flights due to the risk of fire.

Another no-hassle option is this First Alert carbon monoxide alarm, which requires no installation and uses a built-in 10-year battery that never needs to be recharged or replaced. It has a simple LED screen that indicates both temperature and CO levels, as well as peak CO concentrations. When it detects dangerous levels of the odorless gas, it will sound an 85-decibel alarm and flash a red alert.

Designed for outdoor adventurers, this portable device is a carbon monoxide and smoke detector that clips onto a backpack or other gear. It has a waterproof exterior that makes it perfect for camping and backcountry hiking, as well as a vibration mode for those who may need to be more discreet in public areas. It can also be used in a car and includes an attached lanyard for easy attachment.
