The Mythbusters detonated one using incendiary bullets. The explosion was not that large but the flames were substantial. My initial thoughts would be equivalent to a frag grenade plus a double or triple radius Malatov cocktail.

In the US they are very common. Gas stations, convenience, hardware and grocery stores all may sell them.
