The language barrier has unfortunately prevented me from digging up any useful information on how this Sat 119 throwable firefighting pack actually works. As you can see in the video below it’s an easily breakable container filled with a blue chemical liquid that’s quite effective at extinguishing fires in plywood shanties. I’m assuming it creates a chemical reaction of some sort that absorbs enough oxygen in the immediate vicinity to simply suffocate the flames, but if that’s really how it works, as a human who’s also dependent on O2 I’d be leery of being anywhere near it after it was thrown.
Available from Rakuten for ~$70 (¥6,090) which also appears to include two condiment packs of the same chemical substance for dealing with smaller, localized kitchen fires.
