Come on guys, don't be so hard on WG. These are some really nice fire extinguishers, these are for people who like to collect nice things like ancient Greek statues or ancient Italian paintings. But I guess these fire extinguishers would sell better in the U.S.A., since you can sell anything in the states, any old item, as we can see on the "Pawn Stars" or whatever the show's name is on the National Geographic or History Channel or whatever.

Terrible idea and here is why:

 

You are selling these fire extinguishers on a game related forum so you are selling this to gamers, right?

Gamers generally have pretty expensive (and sensitive) electrical equipment in their computer and some machines cost 1600 EUR+ You with me so far?

Having a dry powder fire extinguisher (the cheapest kind) is absolutely terrible when used on computers because it corrodes the components not affected by the fire.

 

Computers need CO2 fire extinguishers that do not corrode equipment. Dry powder or foam extinguishers are not suitable for use on computers despite of what the marketing department tells you.

Dry powder extinguishers are also know as ABC extinguishers, because they are capable of putting out class A (regular solid combustibles such as wood plastic), class B (liquid fuel fires such as gasoline), and class C fires (electrical fires). Typically, you avoid using powder extinguishers on electronics because the electronics will be destroyed, but the fire will be put out. If you only intended to have one extinguisher, this should be it. CO2 extinguishers are good for class B and C fires. A CO2 extinguisher is not rated for regular fires, which is probably the type of fire that you will get in a normal residence. CO2 however, will not wreck your computer. CO2 extinguishers are often kept in rooms with computers and other electrical devices.

Carbon Dioxide Extinguisher

CO2 Fire Extinguishers  
Best For
Live electrical equipment, although it allows re-ignition of hot plastics. Now mainly used on large computer servers, although care has to be taken not to asphyxiate people when using the extinguisher in small server rooms.

I nearly pissed on me while reading this!

Why the Foch would I buy a fire extinguisher? Why? LoL!

 

And 99 euros... why don't you sell it with 32k gold and we get the extinguisher for free...

And 99 euros... sending cost included? Cause this weight quite a lot I guess?

 

Oh, I had a good laugh! A really good one! At least the only and first positive think you gave me this year...

Hi. My name is Marcus and I have a fire extinguisher containing halon that I stole from the army. I know that it is not okay but I feel no regret. Good talk.

Fire extinguishers are generally red for a reason, easily to identify, they contrast with the surroundings and make them more visible under low light conditions.

These are a cool looking novelty items, but fire extinguishers are clearly not novelty items.

HEY WG, what about some solid home fire safety advice from a professional about home fire safety for computer users. That alone would justify trying to sell overpriced gimic fire extinguishers and you just may save a life AND a paying customer and +1 for your reputation.

There is an opportunity here to be seen to be doing something good and worthwhile.
