This is essentially for boats and autos: electrical and flammable liquid fires only.

Ace has the First Alert version with a bracket on sale sometimes: it was $$7.99 a year ago.

If you have an Ace account, you may have a $ off coupon sitting there; I have a $7 off $20.

Consider a blanket as well for kitchen fires, especially if your stove is on an island or otherwise doesn’t have a wall at its back. A fire extinguisher can blow burning oil everywhere. Still should have the extinguisher but for a simple burning pan of oil, a blanket can be safer. I bought one after seeing a video of an extinguisher used on a stovetop fire.

A = paper, wood, cloth, etc
B = oil, grease, etc
C = electrical

The number before an "A" is equal to 1.25 gallons of water. So a 4A extinguisher is as effective as 5 gallons of water.

The number before a "B" and/or "C" is equal to square foot of coverage. So a 5BC extinguisher provides 5sqft of coverage.

For the home, ABC is best, but if I had to choose only two classes for home use it would be an AB extinguisher. C fires cause A fires.

Also, I really recommend going with a larger size. You'd be shocked how quickly these tiny extinguishers run out of agent.
This is a BC rated extinguisher, that means it's good for liquid fire and charged electrical equipment. You'll want an ABC extinguisher for general purposes. Class A is normal combustible stuff like trash can fire, wood, couch, paper and cloth. Therefore you want the A, B, and C protection. ABC is easy to find, maybe not as cheap but get the one that'll work
Sadly, cheaper than refilling.

How should one properly dispose of a fire extinguisher?

If you don't have a couple of these in your house, this is a great opportunity. I had to use one a couple months ago, so thankful I had them!!!!

Perfect for those building new PCs. Ryzen CPUs and Nvidia 40 series are a fiery combination.

I recently had a small brush fire next to my garage. Some kids were playing with a lighter or something. I went through all 5 fire extinguishers (and several buckets of water). The only fire extinguisher that completely failed was the one that was not expired. Save your old unused ones. Also, these things only last a few seconds. You probably need more extinguishers than you think.

One thing to add is A is a mess so if not combustible, def go with BC.

Marine rated - this is a great deal for boaters. Per USCG regulations you need to have a properly rated, non-expired fire extinguisher on board. Just like the flares, every so often they need to be replaced because of expiry but they're usually a lot more expensive. Picked up two, thanks OP!

Li-ion is a B fire but I would evacuate home & run, call Fire Dept. A lithium fire blanket would buy time, not this.
