They call it a reverse Molotov cocktail, nomenclature I find very slick, and thereby reason enough to invest in a throwable fire extinguisher. Plus, although I'm normally more one to fan the flames, I also recognize that ladies love a hero, so putting fires out every now and then might not be such a bad gig either. And I'm sure this Japanese squelcher will come in particularly handy on the 4th of July when every jackhole and his cousin Darryl is going to get completely trashed and then start setting off fireworks from a sodie can.

The Satto 119 Eco throwable fire extinguisher is a grenade of flame eradication whose results are almost immediate. Breakable plastic, which poses no risk to the thrower or standers by, comprises its container composition and a solution of 500ml of ammonium phosphate dibasic and ammonium bicarbonate awaits the chance to suffocate fires inside. The liquid has an extinguishing capacity that is 10 times that of water, while remaining nontoxic and safe for use even by the very young and the very old. Whether or not the very stupid can handle it remains in debate.

Satto 119 Eco containers suffice for combating small fires in their early stages that burn on combustible materials. They WILL NOT put out burning oil, open fires, or flames in advanced stages. Also, since the plastic ampoule containing the extinguisher's cocktail was built to break, knocking it over, dropping it, or pretend smashing it against your forehead will probably effect a chain of events similar to throwing it.

Chuck-it firefighter-in-a-bottle shelf life is 5 years.
