Review 1 for Kidde Pro Line Tri-class Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher 10lbs KID 466204
Date:October 21, 2012
A good choice
Pros: works on all fire sources
Cons: a bit heavy and very messy
Model Number: 466204
"A 10 lb extinguisher is large enough for most commercial as well as residential applications.
ABC ratings make it appropriate to use on all fires but will make a huge mess that must be cleaned up immediately.
Contradicting an earlier review, CO2 is only recommended in something like a computer room as it won't damage electronic components. It's not great for an engine fire as the CO2 clears almost immediately and flammable liquids will reignite instantly.
And yes, dry chemical will mix with flammable liquids and keep them from re-ignition... CO2 will not. While CO2 will work on class A (paper, wood, cardboard) fires it does tend to blow things around quite a bit and can actually spread a fire around if not used carefully."

Review 2 for Kidde Pro Line Tri-class Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher 10lbs KID 466204
Date:March 24, 2011
Failed on car fire
Pros: better than nothing.
Cons: co2 better: will cool down whatever is burning, dc won't cool down hot zones, dc makes a horrible mess whereas co2 won't.
"CO2 type is better on most fires.
Dry Chem. (DC) will not keep fire extinguished, such as gasoline fire under the hood of your car.
DC does NOT cool down heated metals from fire.
Static amount of leaked gasoline kept reigniting from engine heat, even after 2 of these DC extinguishers were exhausted."
