What is a fire extinguisher life expectancy?

Non-rechargeable fire extinguishers generally have a 6 year life expectancy. Keep in mind life expectancy depends on a number of factors. A fire extinguisher should be tested weekly according to the user’s manual. As long as the pointer is in the green area or the pin indicator pops back up when pushed, the extinguisher is properly pressurized and ready to use.
