No mention of volume.

if 2x 400ml then deal
if 2x200ml then no deal.

if they are the twin packs i bought for £10 last time these should be 400ml about £4 a can seems alright. But the larger emtec cans i bought were much better value but thats expired, heat added.

I bought some from Tesco last week and I think it was £3.49 ...I thought that was pricey ..To be honest it was as it was my graphics drivers messed up due to windows 7 ..causing the fan to whir at full speed ..

I looked on-line but can't find it listed ..I bought in store ..It was not on offer.

Not a great price... for just £1.60 more you can get a 4 pack from Amazon: amazon.co.uk/Sta…8-1

I used to buy these because they were funny to spray people with if you turn the can upside down lol (don't try this at home). However, I don't any more because I think they're just way too expensive for what you get. My dad is a bit of a photography anorak and he has something called a 'blower' for his equipment which is basically a small rubber thing that you squeeze and air comes out of a nozzel on it (I know this sounds bad, just stick with me), you can get them on ebay if you search for 'camera blower' for about 50p, and they are ideal for any application I have ever used them in place of a can of air such as cleaning out a computer, much cheaper and re-usable.

Anyone know of a cheap air compressor suitable for just blowing air like this? Like a hobbiest one?
I can't imagine a manual blower would be strong enough to blow certain areas effectively.
Que lame blowing joke...

there are mini compressors used for airbrushing etc. but still around £50.

If I get a filthy computer in for repair I take it to the garage and use my main compressor with a blower gun , holding the cooling fans or they'll end up in orbit !

An airbrush compressor might be suitable, and also relatively compact. Ideally you'd want an oil-free ( diaphragm ) one, maybe something like one of these everythingairbrush.com/aca…tml or amazon.co.uk/Spr…-16

costco sell a pack of 4 (300ml) for approx £10, been a while since i needed any as i stocked up.

Yeah, I've done that a couple of times with friends kit, but it's a pain to drive down there and as I'm not doing it myself I always feel I've missed a spot.

Ohhh...those £50 look interesting. Might look into that at some point, would be great to have an unlimited supply of air!
For now I'll just got a 4 pack for a tenner off amazon though :thumbsup:

Look up this little item: Black & Decker VH780

It acts as a blower as well as a vac, we use a similar one in a computer shop as a blower only and it works a treat. Just hold any fan blades before blowing, or you will spin them out of existance. Nice warm dry air from output after about 40 seconds of running.

Remember all normal compressors run the risk of oil or water residue in their air stream.

Hmm, I notice that so called "air" duster is described as "Compressed Gas Flammable", so presumably it is 4 cans of butane which is why it is much cheaper than compressed air. I've always avoided using butane based dusters because apart from the flammability issue, I thought butane was a solvent which could attack some plastics etc.

Oxygen is a gas and highly flammable. In fact it's explosive in higher concentrations. So that warning doesn't tell you much about what's in the cans.

Oxygen is not flammable. In a fire O2 is not the fuel, it's the oxidant, and anyway compressed air is still 80% nitrogen.
