Default Fire extinguisher

What are you using for hand held fire extinguishers? I have a single older Halon 2.5 lb handheld strapped to the roll bar. I want to add a 2nd as I don’t think a single discharge would last very long. I see Halotron is now available and some others products that don’t immediately list the chemical agent. I have no first-hand experience with any of them. I want to have something useful.

Cheers!

Never heard of it before. Literally had to Google it. https://www.elementfire.com/
50 sec discharge for $80 100 sec discharge for $120. Good for all classifications. Thank you! Looks promising.
Just need to fabricate a way to securely mount it within reach.

I spoke with one of the owners, Paul, and was extremely impressed with the performance of the product. They presented at SEMA and had a lot of interest. They are working on agreements to be available through various dealers we all know and depend on. Due to this they are not keen on the idea of a group buy but given their pricing it is hardly necessary. They are also working on FIA and SFI certifications and inclusion in the Porsche Tequipment catalog.

All products are immediately available through their website, free shipping! Not even a hazardous materials surcharge.
Check out their FAQ page, no maintenance and no effective expiration.

Thanks for the follow up info. Also if you want a little Porsche 'Celebrity Endorsement' today Jeff Zwart posted on his Instagram that he is an Element user in his classic Porsches: https://www.instagram.com/zwart/?hl=en

Pretty cool

I ordered the same today.
Paul sent me his direct contact information and said he would be glad to speak to anyone that has questions or or could offer suggestions on any events that would give him the opportunity to help promote the product.
