The organization representing New York's volunteer fire fighters is reminding residents to check their smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms to ensure they're in working order. Since you can not replace the lithium battery, replace the entire smoke alarm according to the alarm instruct ions.

Trego said worn or missing batteries are the most common cause of a smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector malfunction. Replace the entire smoke alarm every l0 years. Any alarms with a manufacture date of March 11, 2008, or earlier should be replaced.

They are more expensive than regular alarms, but the cost of replacement batteries is typically covered over the life of the product. But the smoke detector is just one part of the equation.
"Once a year, old batteries should be replaced with new batteries".
