Home Depot has their disposable fire extinguishers on sale for $9.88 (regularly $18.97)

Cheapest I've seen home fire extinguishers on Amazon are ~$16.

For those of you that run AirBnB's or just need a fire extinguisher for the home this is a pretty good price on individual fire extinguishers.

First time posting on here, so hopefully I get it right!

It been some years since I was fire fighting trained, but I remember a mnemonic that may help you to know what extinguishers do:

A - ashes - think paper; old school ones can be water

B - boils - think liquid/fuels

C - circuits - usually CO2 so it doesn't leave powder/water all over electronics

D - da metals or dry powder ('D' doesn't work as well as the others)- dry powder for burning metal

K - kitchen - technically just a multipurpose extinguisher with kitchen use in mind

Since there's so much discussion about kitchen grease fires, let me also add that a grease fire should never be attacked with a direct spray from any extinguisher. Indirect attacks on the backsplash, hood, or even over the top of the fire will still cover the entire area in agent without blowing the grease all over the place.

Pretty much the same as the Ace Hardware deal:

Decent for the garage, shed etc, but after a Kiddie that failed to work during a garage fire, I bought real extinguishers for my kitchen/upstairs/and dining room etc. (Amerex). When your out and about, check the extinguishers in any store your in, no one uses a Kiddie or First Alert. If you want professional grade, look elsewhere.

You seem to know a lot about these.

Is it safe to keep one in a car that gets very hot in the summer?

These are onsale $10 a pop every month. I just searched and there was one onsale just last month.

I would go with First Alert at Costco for A, B and C.

Up until the point you have a flying projectile that either strikes something softer than it or the pin gets yanked out and depresses the handle. You're interior is coated in a fine white powder. Otherwise, yes it's a DOT standard for commercial vehicles to have a MOUNTED fire extinguisher. If you can securely strap it to something, go for it. But probably more than a bungee cord under the seat type of mount.

Link to Costco or to last month $10 for this same product at Homedepot?

I didn't say Costco has $10 a pop of ABC.

Also probably go for ABC rather than just BC type

These are best for vehicles and the kitchen, not general household or business use, since they aren't "A." They'd work on Class A fires, but not as effectively.

Yes, they're OK to store in vehicles, preferably mounted.

That's because Amerex, Buckeye, et. al., dealers prefer the high mark-ups those companies' wholesale agreements provide. Hence, you won't see metal-valve First Alert or Kidde extinguishers in most "regulatory maintained" applications. There is nothing wrong with the metal-valve, UL-listed, rechargeable First Alert or Kidde units for commercial or industrial applications. They meet Fire Code standards.
