The best choice of extinguisher for the home, a van or small commercial vehicle is the 2kg ABC Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher in the Firechief XTR range. It is a highly versatile Class A, B and C fire-fighting extinguisher and so can deal with electrical hazards, flammable liquids and gases, general wood/paper fires. These are strongly recommended for the home due to their small size yet versatile at fighting fires. These are popular within truck cabs and public transport vehicles such as buses and trains.
They have lots of positives to their uses and the only negatives with dry powders is that they are very messy when used and can give poor visibility due to the particles within the air and can hinder your escape. They can also cause breathing difficulties in those who suffer from respiratory diseases such as asthma and bronchitis.
British Standard 5306 recently updated their recommendations suggesting to only install dry powder extinguishers inside a building if deemed absolutely necessary by a fire risk assessment.
