Here is the way I see it. If it is overpriced, people won’t buy it. I know a lot of Motorsports associations use Stop-Fyre extinguishers. I bought some several years back. I keep them in the shop and in my combine. I have seen the mess that the chemical extinguishers do. I heard a story about a guy not too far from me, that had a Stop-Fyre mounted to his skid steer. He walked into his shop one morning and the skid steer was burnt up. Come to find out, the skid steer developed a short and caught fire. The heat from the fire melted the top of the Stop-Fyre off and put the fire out. Nothing else in the shop was damaged. I have heard of insurance companies paying to re-charge the Stop-Fyres because they saved the insurance company a bunch of money. Water extinguishers work fine for certain fires, but I didn’t think water was supposed to work on electrical fires.
