There is a Kidde one which regularly sells for £10.99 on Amazon which can be used on A type fire also, plus it has a stated fire rating for C unlike this one, which just has a rating for B and it also has a longer range.
This is the class of fire extinguisher recommended for taking on terrorists!

Do fire extinguishers expire, or can they be used forever basically?

They most certainly do expire. They really need testing annually and replaced as required. In a domestic environment you really are better off shutting the door on a fire , get out and call 999.

Manufacturers will suggest about 5-15 depending on who and what extinguisher... Dry powder extinguishers should be disturbed often just by turning them (might need a small banging) especially before use. But yer they will generally still work past due service dates and you will only really find those dates in commercial places... I keep one in my car I took from a caravan that was gonna be scrapped... Saves me looking useless at a car fire considering I'm a firefighter
I wonder why this isn't ABC powder though... That's something new for me to learn why they don't just use the A B C covering dry powder

They couldn’t fit all the letters on the extinguisher and they already had two A’s

Online says they can still be used on A (organic solids) fires... Beats me
These are better than nothing, but only if you know how to use it and you are aware of it's limitations.

It's purpose is in its name.
Fire extinguisher.

Anyone using an extinguisher should be aware of its correct use and limitations.

The correct use will prevent a small fire developing into something major.

I understand that smoke inhalation is actually the cause of most deaths in the event of fire.
Maybe you could teach my instructor a thing or two.

If used correctly you can also use it to buy valuable seconds. Or if you have a c02 fire extinguisher it's very good at taking down a burglar.

Thanks for the share!
All extinguishers have their limits. The London bridge terrorist was squirted by a water one,a powder would have worked better as the baking powder would cause eye and lung irritation, CO2 used close equally effective as the gas would make eye moisture freeze and displace oxygen from the lungs,that's why you should not use a CO2 in a small room, go for a foam extinguisher for maximum terrorist knockdown.

I'd rather have caused him some irritation with the narwhal tusk, if you get my drift
Fire extinguisher is mandatory in some European countries. MINIMUM 1kg ! This one is only 950g so you need at least two.

Hi there - interesting comments!

I have an old (maybe 15 years now) ABC 1kg Power Extinguisher in my kitchen. the pressure gauge is still bang in the middle of the green zone ! ..... I do keep wondering if it should now be replaced ....

ive got one in my hands now, ABC dry powder and its production date is 2007. Very subtly indented in the neck. Guage reads well, cannot hear the powder when turned but it's only .3kg

To be honest the service dates are only like every 5 years and have no set expiration date so should be fine if the gauge is fine. Just be sure to keep turning it so it doesn't clump up at the bottom

Theres a reason why its required in a lot of countries and why a lot of companies and landlords, Homeowner's use them

I agree that if used correctly a fire extinguisher is a very useful tool. The trouble is, to often people buy an extinguisher having no clue how to use it, what type they require and do not know where to site it. It normally gets put in a cupboard hidden away.
If you truly want to rely on an extinguisher in a domestic environment take the trouble to learn how to use it correctly and the type that would be suitable for you.
Call your local fire station and they will carry out a free home safety check. Give fire safety advice and where necessary fit smoke detectors, again free of charge. It is much better to get personalised advice from a professional than to rely on the well meant but often incorrect advice given on a shopping site!
