Air Duster 'can of air' 750ml instore at Poundland



Checked in my local poundland at Gateshead and found this on sale.

Here's the info from the label on the can:
A safe & convenient way to remove dust & debris from inside inaccessible areas

Ideal for printer, keyboard, CPU, copiers, fax etc.

Environmentally friendly - 100% ozone friendly

Operates even when inverted.
Variable spray intensity
Contains propane & butane (propellant)

SHOP STOCK WARNING: I've just checked with my local Metrocentre store and they've got no more stock. Seems it was an odd batch they got in. Everyone please ring your local store first before going or it might be a wasted trip. The manageress of the Gateshead store who I spoke to today said there was a chance they might get more stock in but couldn't say when and that it was best to keep asking just in case...I suppose it was just too good a deal, they must have flown off the shelves...

I'm sorry but this is ridiculous!
Whatever happened to sucking the dust out with a hoover attatchment surely more effective than blowing it further in!
I wouldnt waste a pound on it when i can do it for free!

Hoovers create massive amounts of electrstatic energy, the nylon bristles on the end of the hoover attachment direct that energy and discharge onto any conductive element they touch/come close to.

Taking that into account, you can probably see why the air duster is a better way of doing things.

In the IT industry, cleaning PC components using a hoover really is a case of showing the men from the boys :)

All bow down to the PC repair God ... We are not worthy! We are not worthy!

Back in the real world, any PC engineer / enthusiast worth his salt knows that an air duster is an invaluable tool for cleaning a PC, especially when dealing with heat sinks and/or hard to access areas that a hoover (even the strongest Dyson) cannoy cope with.

Personally, I think this is a stunning deal as Maplins / PC World charge £6-£7 for a can. Top find.

nice price, i wouldn't pay more then £1 for what is just AIR

normally its a rip off at places like MAplins

but for a quid, defo a bargain.

Why not just take the PC into the shower with you?
#12
Would this be safe to use on the graphics card fan? as mine is very small and I would have thought a blast of air could damage it?:?:?:?
Computer illiterate Thanks Robert
#13
also good for fixing dints on your car.

find a uncreased dint, put hair dryer on, blowing medium heat for about 5 mins onto the dint, not too close though. Turn air can upside down and spray dint for a few seconds until dint is covered. The dint will turn to ice and as it contracts your dint will pop out. It does work as tried myself but paid £6 for air.

Top tip have a couple of dints will try.

I've never heard of this sort of thing!! :?

and.......I'm not really any the wiser as reading the previous posts on this thread you all seem to have divided views over it!

Yup. You could use this. Just make sure you give the can a quick blast into the air first to disperse any vapour that's built up. Then give the video a card fan a blast and watch the dust and XXXX fly out :)

You won't be able to do the dent popping trick with this particualr can, as it is "Invertable"

Normal canned air will spray out very cold liquid propellant when sprayed upside down, which is great for making things very cold fast, but not so good for cleaning dust from your PC.

Its also dangerous to spray this on your skin, it doesn't take long to get frost burns.

The can in this thread will spray the same jet of air either way up.

Indeed, anyone that uses a hoover in a PC needs shooting....
#22
What i tend to do is set the hoover running close to the case but not touching, then blow the dust towards it, that way it doesn't fill the room with dust!

a natural bristle paint brush is good for removing hard to shift clumps.

Don't use a nylon brush, the static might cook something expensive.
#23
Hi,

Although I can't deny this seems like a bargin, after reading this article titled: [COLOR="Blue"]Adolescents have died huffing from cans of Dust-Off brand compressed air [/COLOR] http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/dustoff.asp

I just like to ask those who purchase dust off please ensure you keep it out of reach of children and teenages.
#24
Let me set this debate to rest.

The whole point of using an air duster is to remove dust from inaccessible areas. Examples of which :

- Underneath your keyboard keys (unless you want to prop out every key .. Good luck in remembering where to put them back!)
- Inside your PSU (Don't disassemble your PSU, you might get a nasty shock from stored energy)
- Underneath your motherboard
- ON your motherboard (Please, don't go sweeping your delicate transistors & capacitors with a great big brush!)
- around your RAM modules (Don't brush as this creates static which will kill RAM)

The only thing a hoover is good for is cleaning the dust off your case.

I rest my case.
#25
Oh .. and the air in a can is NOT oxygen, so breathing it in continuously will most likely suffocate you.
#26
That youtube vid was faked. No one's been able to replicate it.
#27
hoovers create masses amount of ESD can damage componants, plus some dust gets stuck in places you won't get ur 5" round hover nose in!
#28
great price will have a look at ours voted hot thx

Then you can just wash and go :p

I used a soft natural bristle brush to carefully clean inside my PC last week but still managed to fry the RAM even though I was nowhere near it ,so a vacuum cleaner is definitely a no no.

Since found out that 3V of static can kill a RAM stick, you can transfer this tiny amount from your fingers or a brush.
Tip I was given when working inside PC case is to leave PC plugged in but with the power turned OFF, the wire will act as an earth, plus keep touching the case to discharge static as you are working.

I'll be using canned air from now on, great find, heat added.

Brilliant deal, very good for people like my self (IT Field engineer) that service PCs for business onsite.
#31
Very good deal, the price of this stuff from Maplins or anywhere else is just crazy.
#32

Killed my mini dv camcorder on a VERY dust dune buggy trek on holiday.
Used an air duster and a cleaning tape and it's good as new!!! Top find for a pound!!!
#36
Excellant find... voted hot. :thumbsup:

Unfortunately I'm not allowed to use it on my keyboard as the last time I turned it over and shook it so much stuff fell out it was henceforth designated a (SSSI) Site of Special Scientific Interest by Defra. :whistling:
#37
None in Watford. :x
#38
Good deal !!!
#39
