First Alert AF400 Tundra Fire Extinguishing Aerosol Spray Review
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent discharge time and area
The discharge time of the Tundra is 32 seconds, which is two-four times longer than that of regular extinguishers, making it ideal for quickly fighting common household fires. It also comprises a wide-spray nozzle that can spray a greater surface area and thus give you greater control in extinguishing a fire. It's recommended to use the product about 3 to 4 feet away from the fire.
Pro Fights all types of small fires
This fire extinguishing spray can be used to put out small A, B, and C class fires. Such fires could involve paper, fabric, wood, cooking oils, electrical appliances, and equipment.
Pro Minimizes damage to your property
The Tundra spray contains a biodegradable formula that won't damage appliances, equipment, or countertop surfaces following its use. And if you do have to use the product, you simply need to wipe it away with a damp cloth, making post-blaze clean-up much less of a fuss.
Pro Highly portable
This aerosol spray is so light and compact that it can be transported easily from one place to another. As such, it's ideal for the kitchen, garage, boat, RV, and even for travel.
Pro Lightweight and easy to use
Tundra comes in a light aerosol can that is easy to hold, carry, and use. It can be stored in cabinets and drawers, next to the fireplace, underneath the sink, or anywhere else you think you might need it. What's more, it's much less intimidating to utilize than a heavy, traditional fire extinguisher, particularly for those who may lack physical strength.
A two-pack of Tundra is only $25.
Con Lacks pressure gauge
There is no pressure gauge on the Tundra can, meaning you can't check its pressure status.
Once the Tundra fire extinguisher has been used up or expired, you’ll need to buy a new one.
Con Use of aerosol extinguishers discouraged by experts
Generally-speaking, experts warn against the use of aerosol extinguishers, advising that they only be used as a supplement to regular fire extinguishers and not as a replacement.
