Hi DavinaTa

The main reasons that powder extinguishers are no longer recommended is that they reduce visibility and can affect your breathing. Whenever I talk baout powder extinguishers i liken it to exploding 2kg of talcum powder in a room and then trying to find your way out. It gets in your eyes, mouth, nose and will never be fully cleaned up.

The latest 'one-for-all' type of extinguisher is the dry water mist fire extinguisher http://www.safelincs.co.uk/e-series-water-mist-fire-extinguishers/

The UltraFire dry water mist extinguishers can be used on virtually all types of fire and if used on an actual fire they de-ionised water evaporated completely, leaving no residue whatsoever.

Hope this helps.
