In-store only at Costco yesterday I bought for $19. Was on sale for 50% off. Currently sells at Lowes for $52 and Amazon for $49.

It's the heavy duty 5lb rechargeable one. I also like the wall-mount quick release strap. Very handy to keep up high at eye level for easy access.

Good deal for what it is but you should probably add "5 lb." to the title. While better than most cheapo extinguishers, it is relatively small. These are good for keeping multiple around your house but I think it would be wise to invest in at least one 15 lb extinguisher.

Any idea which size of rechargeable extinguishers is more economically feasible to get recharged, while maintaining long-term reliability?

I did some research a year or so ago and came to the conclusion that anything smaller than 15 lb. should probably be considered throw-away. Anything bigger than 15 lb. is rather heavy and awkward for many people to handle. Seemed to me at the time of my research that 15 lb. was the "sweet-spot". Do your own research though, I'm certainly no expert.

Thanks, updated. I buy these to keep one in garage and one in kitchen for emergencies. Any bigger and that's what fire dept is for.

Everyone's situation is different, I guess, but for me it's worth spending a little money to get a bigger extinguisher just in case it is needed. It could literally save someone's life. Relying on the fire department to save you could be a regrettable decision. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

Is there any way to check the price, before I get a Costco membership? Phone call maybe?
If available, this would tip me over the edge to pay for a membership.

Thanks nod

You can always say you're going to the pharmacy at the door. They can't require you to have a membership to use the pharmacy
