Keeping a fire extinguisher to hand should be a priority for all caravanners and motorhome owners, and this new handheld model from J&R Fire looks like it should make this much easier to do.

It’s called the PFE-1 Standard and is billed as the world’s smallest fire extinguisher. The CE marked extinguisher is a one-shot device that’s maintenance free and comes with a 10-year guarantee.

Keeping a fire extinguisher to hand should be a priority for all caravanners and motorhome owners, and this new handheld model from J&R Fire looks like it should make this much easier to do.

It’s called the PFE-1 Standard and is billed as the world’s smallest fire extinguisher. The CE marked extinguisher is a one-shot device that’s maintenance free and comes with a 10-year guarantee.

The PFE-1 Standard is safe for use with electrical fires and leaves no residue behind after use, making it ideal for use in a small space where using a larger extinguisher to put out a small fire might make a considerable mess.

Unfortunately, the manufacturer’s appalling web site makes it difficult to obtain specific information about the PFE-1 Standard and we’re still trying to find out about UK availability. Until we do, here’s a video of the fire extinguisher in action to tide you over:
