I prefere a CO2 extinguisher for two ( OK almost 3 reasons):

you probably have to stand save with any type of extinguisher, bear in
mind that you might built up a connection between you and HV parts of the
circiut, so you should really have a chance to turn the thing of before
trying to put the fire out.
The only really bad choice is probably a water extinguisher ;-)
Its allway a good idea to ahve one at hand. I do, but I believe most coilers
don't. You may only start a fire oncy in your coiling time, but its good to
know you have an extinguisher at hand that time ;-) as you probably don't
get a second chance.
The bad thing is, since I run around with that thing, my parents are much
more afraid of what I'm doing ;-)
geetz and save coiling!
