You wouldn't want to use a dry powder extinguisher in an enclosed compartment, gives you major visibility problems, breathing problems and overall isn't very nice

It's gotta be better than burning to death I'd have thought

Love the juxtaposition of this next to the candles on their website. Maybe they could do them as a package?

Thanks

Someone looks like they have left one lying in the corridor of the hotel I`m in at present. If they don`t claim it by the morning, I think I will have saved myself a trip to Lidl.

They have probably emptied the powder out and filled it with petrol X)

You should never try to tackle a fire yourself anyway, 'Get out, Stay out, Call the Fire Brigade out'

If it's safe to do so then put it out! I had training at Kempston Fire Station, I was a Fire Marshall as part of one of my jobs a few years ago.

We had an electrical fire in our house a couple of years ago and wished we had one of these then! Fortunately it only burnt the PVC socket and backbox before going out but the fumes were horrid. Easily could have been a lot worse.

I would urge everybody to have one of these!

You need CO2 for electrical fires.

Dry powder is also suitable for electrical although not ideal as it will destroy the appliance beyond repair.fireservice.co.uk/saf…php

I'm a firefighter for Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service and we never ever recommend anyone tries to tackle a fire themselves

What if your on the 1st floor of a building, all the windows are locked and you cant smash them because they are double glazed. You realise that you have a large fire extinguisher that can put out the flames on the staircase so you can escape. Powder is good for everything except for chip pan fires which you use a wet tea towell/ fire blanket on. I would not suggest powder if you have a classic car / expensive electrical equipment as it will destroy almost everything it gets into contact with. But as a last ditch attempt it is better than losing your home / garage. plus its coming up for bonfire night when a drunk neighbour is sure to set someones bin / shed on fire.
