Handy indeed ... all I'd add is to make sure the battery works, and recharge it now and then.
I was slightly early this year but I generally change/charge/check all battery operated devices (smoke detectors, flashlights, etc) on -both- "Fall Back" and "Spring Forward" days...Gives me peace of mind.
BTW, speaking of batteries, not sure if anyone has noticed but the days of the good ol' no brainer battery changes are over...Many sizes of batteries, although sized the same, now come in a variety of voltages, etc. I've found several instances lately where a device specifically said -not- to use a particular type of battery (NiMh, Lithium, etc). This seems to be particularly common with high tech devices and the new LED flashlights...it pays to RTFM.
