Anyone got one of these ?

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01G1Z0RF0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Ive ordered one to try and keep my pc clean as it seams to pick up dust fast, i think it be better than wasting money on those air cans.

I have one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/UNIVERSAL-VACUUM-CLEANER-MICRO-TOOL/dp/B006MVR2X4/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_79_lp_tr_... .  Its a lot less expensive because it's just a series of attachments for a regular vacuum cleaner.  It seems to work well enough.  The main problem is keeping all the bits together.

I use a pair of lips on a pipe attached to my lungs, it works but in the opposite way. Cheesy

Don't breath in by mistake, @Mook!

Ah well that’s the problem with my approach @ReedRichards if you’re doing a sweep of the keyboard your first breath out is OK, but then you need to take another, and of course you inhale what you’ve loosened off in the first breath, so it’s not the best solution if the truth be told.

Of course if the device is really dusty you can end up coughing and spluttering which totally undoes what you're trying to do!

Re: Anyone got one of these ?

I was contemplating buying the item (or similar) in the OP of this thread and saved it in my Amazon shopping list.  It then occurred to me that I would also like to buy a garage-type air compressor for occasional use, so I figured taking the price of the item in question off the price of a compressor would be a tidy saving.

I'm thinking you'd need to ensure you used a filter in the airline to prevent blowing traces of compressor oil into your electronic devices.

I use my domestic vacuum cleaner with a couple of different supplied nozzles.

My keyboard goes in the sink with warm water and washing up liquid. Scrubs up a treat.

I picked up a super USB powered miniature vacuum & attachments from Poundland.

Can't remember how much I paid for it 😁
