Underwriters Laboratories (UL) classifies and rates fire extinguishers on their ability to put out various types and sizes of fires (see chart below). Using a given fire type and size as a benchmark, UL tests an extinguisher and assigns a numerical rating before the letter classification to denote the size of a given type of fire that an extinguisher can put out. For example, a 5B:C fire extinguisher has 2.5 times the firefighting capacity against a flammable liquid and/or electrical fire as a 2B:C extinguisher. (Note: "C" class fire extinguishers do not carry a numeric rating. the presence of the letter "C" simply indicates that the extinguishing agent is non-conductive.)
