While there are many reports of laptop fires these days, very few people posses a weapon capable of fighting such a fire. The Laptop Fire Extinguisher is a device resembling traditional kitchen fire extinguishers, except it is a Class D copper powder fire extinguisher capable of extinguishing lithium ion battery fires.

       Only if you equip the extinguisher with a wi-fi ready video transmitter that is heat activated so I can watch it burn at just the right temp.

       I prefer the idea of incorporating a waffle-griddle into the keyboard framework... but I'll bun this... Hmm, toasted buns...   

       Hmmm... toasted cheese sandwiches :d

       I had a fire on my laptop once, but lo and behold when I stood up, my laptop was gone! Turns out I had a slight rash from Ivy. That's the last time I let Ivy sit on my lap.

       What would be more useful, is a small CO2 or Halon cylinder (I'm talking 2" long or so) that discharges automatically into the battery area of the laptop if it detects a fire. Think race car fire systems, just scaled down.

       As the battery is unsalvageable anyways, why not just eject and let blow?

       Ouch! That sounds like it hurt!

       I had a fire too, it was on my bed. I detached it from the electricity and it extinguished. But last year we had a whole family burnt alive caused by a laptop on one of the kids beds catching on fire. See link.
