“This Recreational unit”
What is recreational about a fire extinguisher?
Got these a few weeks back on woot. One is already in the red/unusable. Don’t waste your money - these are old extinguishers.
[MOD: You purchased a different brand, First Alert. Both items were new/fresh. You may have a defective unit. Make sure you reach out to First Alert.]
These units were designed to be placed in boats, RVs, and the like. Smaller than your typical fire extinguishers you’d see putting out an office fire.
This particular fire extinguisher has no distinguishable medicinal benefits.
Not sure but it’s straight from Kidde. Maybe as opposed to commercial?
Hi there. You bought the First Alert fire extinguishers. These are Kidde. The First Alert extinguishers were fresh, not old. Remember that you have a 10yr warranty with First Alert.
My Prime discount is not showing up. I am also getting charged for shipping.
I logged-in using Amazon and I have Prime membership
Hi there. Look for the “Use this address” button under your address. Click/tap that and the order page will finish loading to remove the shipping.
So it did! Thx.
“New” implies still in the box and never used. That means nothing. What is the average expiration date I can expect?
Are these rechargeable or are they single-use?
Says they’re rechargeable
Not sure where it says they’re rechargeable. But, these are not rechargeable. If you notice their gauges, that state “Discard/Replace”. Any fire extinguisher with that gauge is not rechargeable. If rechargeable, that gauge will have a “Recharge” label in that location.
These are great for boat owners. Hence the USCG approval if the bracket is used.
Yeah. “Replace” the juice inside = recharge
Sorry bsmith, but that’s incorrect and false information. If an extinguisher, by any corporation, is rechargeable, it will state that on their gauges and will not say “replace”. I suggest anyone interested in buying these contacts their local fire department with the Kidde part number. They will tell you this same information.
I had two of these in the past for protection in a small shed in my backyard. When one went to empty, and I was informed of this information, I went with two First Alert extinguishers instead for that protection that are rechargeable, and state that clearly on their gauges like I was informed by my local fire department.
Just giving accurate information for those interested. These are a good, solid cheap option. However, they are NOT a permanent option and will need to be “replaced”, not recharged.
After 16 years in the fire and safety service industry, I have learned many things. The most important thing here is, these are absolute trash extinguishers. They are designed in a way, that any attempt to use it on an actual fire, will have the user tilting the unit over to point the nozzle at the base of it. Doing so causes the ABC powder to move toward the top of the extinguisher, causing most to not get picked up by the BOTTOM FEED siphon tube.
I always told customers (boaters, truckers, campers) when they asked to buy one: Do you want to just pass the insurance requirement, or do you want to save your property?
Because you are better off using your personal “fire fighting equipment” to put it out, than this.
These are indeed marketed as disposable, BUT, you can also purchase a recharge adapter for this type of extinguisher from Fire and Safety equipment vendors.
I had one, and am ashamed to say I have recharged these before. But the area of the country I live in was more akin to the wild west than a civilized city.
The AHJs around here would have our company come in monthly to do seminars on proper inspection and service of F&S equipment, both fixed and portable.
These are dry chemical ABC extinguishers.
Also…they are trash right out of the box.
Don’t throw trash on a fire. Use these instead.
Says rechargeable at the Amazon site
