It's not a CO2 extinguisher, it's dry powder. Great price though.

ah, not so hot then:(

Multi Purpose?

Putting out fires is the only purpose surely?!?!

What capacity are these? Would be it be suitable for a car?

For putting a flaming car out? I doubt it!

In some countries its law to carry one with you, and does make sense, because you can stop a small fire with one. Would work on a fire from something like a cigarette, or if the brakes caught fire. As I'm planning a trip to Germany I will need to carry one.

Looks like one off store. Rang my store and Asda Direct to search. Asda Direct do cheapest at £9.50. Dang!!!

Good for squirting neds

if u set sum1 on fire and then have a sudden change of heart.........PERFECT "

I hope not, if you see what I mean

Why not? From the box, it looks like an ABC extinguisher, meaning you can use it on all types of fires (other types of extinguisher handle some but not all types of fires -- as in electrical fires, gas/oil fires, wood fires etc) but this one looks like it does it all, and that type of extinguisher costs much more than the ones that only do two out of three (typically the cheaper ones won't handle either the electrical or the oil fires, you would need more than one extinguisher on hand to have it covered unless you got an ABC extinguisher). I've been pricing extinguisers, and it's over 20 quid for one like this elsewhere! Too bad I can't get in to an Asda.

Ty :thumbsup:

If it were me, I'd go for a CO2 extinguisher for the car (assuming it's legal to carry one as they're obviously a compressed gas).

The most likely location of a car fire is the engine bay, so you're not going to be able to remove the fuel from the fire (there's an abundance of oil and petrol there) or the heat and it's difficult to smother an engine bay fire with powder.

CO2 smothers the fire and takes away the heat (assuming you've turned the engine off!), so you remove two out of the three requirements for fire, rather than just half of one with the powder.

because if it is CO2 it can be used for refilling compressed air weapons at a very cheap price

Might be enough to put out a small under-bonnet fire if you caught it quick enough. Pop the bonnet catch and aim it through the crack. It might work or it might not, for £3 it would be worth a try.

Make sure you pay cash, if you pay by card they may claim the price is invalid and charge you £50 without your consent

One of the advantages of CO2 is that it doesn't leave a mess like powder. Good for electrical fires, for example in your expensive AV rack, but not as flexible as powder.

Hmm. engine bay fire....would recommend an experienced fireman raise the bonnet in an engine fire otherwise you may end up having to use the extinguisher on yourself.

People shouldn't kid themselves than thay can put out even a small fire, the point of these devices is to allow your escape or help others get away

ideal for the campervan.

I already have one, but at £3 this would be ideal to have as a backup.

The last thing you want to do with an engine fire is raise the bonnet and let the fire get a good rush of air just as you lean over it. You pop the catch and point the extinguisher at arms length through the crack. If it's only just started it's not going to blow up like in the movies. Obviously engage common sense when dealing with dangerous stuff like fire.

That's the benefit of a CO2 extinguisher - you don't need to aim it at the fire in the engine bay to put it out. Simply aim it at the grill with the bonnet down and it will flood the engine bay with CO2 and remove the heat. ;-)

Or just take the petrol cap off and P*ss in the tank, that would cool down the fire on the engineer because our pee is coated with fizz:thumbsup:

None in Crawley

Good price.

any idea on size?

but would you open the bonnet....no, unless you are stupid - or a trained fireman with the right gear

See post #28, you don't need to open the bonnet to use a CO2 fire extinguisher on an engine bay fire effectively. ;-)
