Questions & Answers
In what sense does "rechargeable" describe something? Could you tell me where I can recharge my phone?
Fire extinguishers like this one can be recharged. So, if you shoot off the tank, it can be filled again by qualified service technicians. Although this particular brand requires more charging than buying a new unit, it is still more expensive to recharge. Buying a better quality brand (Badger, Ansul, or Buckeye) would be a better choice for me. Please provide a source for "
Fire extinguishers are serviced by the company in which I work.
120 volts is the voltage stated on the box. Could you please explain what the word "voltage" means? How do you connect it? Is there a plug to connect it to?
Using the voltage (120 - b) The part about the fire extinguisher is an error and does not apply. The following are some of the things that my father taught me as an electrical engineer with a master's degree. When an extinguisher is rated for "electrical" fires, it does not have a rating for 120 / 220 or other amps/volts. Whenever it says that it's supposed to be used on "electrical fires," that's just what it means. Since it's the same type of fire, the voltage does not matter. The most important thing is the size of the extinguisher for the electrical fire, that is, the size of the extinguisher. It is not ideal to run a small business out of this small residential unit.
What is the expiration date of this?
The answers I just read are wrong, so I am posting them here despite the fact that they are old. Fire extinguishers are recommended for a period of 5 to 15 years on multiple websites. There are a lot of options there. I am in the process of buying a new one for my kitchen right now. You'll put the older one in the garage or somewhere else where there is a higher chance of a fire starting. Regardless of when I purchased my fire extinguisher, I do not recall when I purchased It says (2013) on the right side of the label, but I did not notice that prior to reading the label. In my opinion, this sounds The older bottles do have a date on them I'm not sure when the new ones were made. As for the date, it appears to be when it was manufactured, not a date of expiration. There would be a date on it if it were a date of expiration.
Does this have to do with dry chemicals or Co2?

Did I really get ripped off? Why do I need to prove it? In the first place, I received a product that was defective
We sent a charger, but it merely indicates that the battery There are many horrors involved here, but it is especially aggravating because it poses a safety hazard. If I try to return this product without first contacting the manufacturer, it won't let me do so. The online retailer needs to take responsibility for its actions. Even if I provide a photo of what I'm claiming, they won't let me add it! Among the items in this category are safety items. It's a puzzle to me. To get in touch with Amazon directly, I will continue to do so. BUY THIS PRODUCT BUT DO NOT USE IT!.

There are dangers associated with a "return"
The item is too large for the space it is intended for. A message told me that this item couldn't be returned when I requested a return. The order page does not mention this anywhere in the description of the product.

As seen in the image, the First Alert fire extinguisher arrived in good condition
As you can see on the pressure gauge, the needle just touches red. The fire extinguisher seems to be past its useful life. It arrived in a condition that indicates it is past its time to be useful. For it to last a year before moving into the red zone for recharge, I hope it will last at least a year. It expired within 2 months when it was last updated on 7/15/18! "Recharge" is now the red zone at the top of the needle. If I buy anything with an expiration date from Amazon again, should I take the risk?.

It has a no return policy and is defective
It is one of two extinguishers I received which had a bent handle and no charge. Upon visiting a certified retailer to see if they could fix or recharge it, they told me that it was faulty and that it was leaking. Even though I ordered it only 10 days ago, I am unable to return the item as per the return policy in place. As much as I love my home and family, I don't feel comfortable replacing parts on things that have the potential to save them.

This boat showed up empty and with all sorts of chemicals all over it! It arrived with chemicals stashed all over the outside of the extinguisher, as well as spilling out of its As the gauge showed that it would fill to the top, the instructions said it was inoperable because the pump was out of order
Sorry to hear that. As for my nose, I got a lot of chemicals in there This caused it to.

Grabbing it already would be great! Our electric water heater started a fire in our utility room six months ago, so hopefully we won't have to find out how effective this is, but we are extremely grateful we had two extinguishers so we could extinguish it without consequence
Our day was scorching hot! At the time the fire department arrived, the second extinguisher was just beginning to run out. The two of us and my hero of a husband would have lost everything if it wasn't for them. With four extinguishers now available, we have a good supply. The kitchen, utility room, living room, family room with a basket near the fire place, and a room in the back of the house are all used as storage areas. As I was writing this review, I realized that we don't have a garage heater. There is one more order to be placed. There was only a small fire in the utility room, but smoke, soot and ashes spread throughout the We expect that contractors will complete all work within a week or two.

The quality of what you get depends on the price you pay
5 months after I bought my fire extinguisher, its charge has been lost.

Does this seem reasonable to you? Wouldn't it be great if it worked when I needed It's possible that I might suffer a cardiac arrest during the fire, so I'll update the review if anything happens to me
