Blowers to clean keyboards/computers/laptops - What do you suggest?

I was considering getting one of these guys as a more cost-effective way of cleaning vs. compressed air cans. Has anyone used these items and can comment on it?

the first three are definitely way OVER KILL those are usually to blow snow or leaves outside. you might end up blowing the whole pc component rather than just dust Face With Tears Of Joy

yeah but it is too big to effectively get into every nooks and crannies of PC components. such as keyboards

This is what I use for cleaning computers etc with a 'regular' air compressor. (Pic 1)
Attached a microfilter to reduce debris like air (wet) vapours and other particles. (Pic 2)

My Datavac travels around my friends and family before it comes back to me for regular cleaning. Works great for PC, vaccum filters, air purifier filters, keyboards, fan filters.


Very well made, thick cable, please use this outdoors only.

The original ED-500 was designed to be an alternative for compressed air. It even includes attachments to clean your keyboard etc. Extra long power cord, this is perfect for cleaning your computer

I got one 14 years ago and it was only 60$, prices have spiked since then
+1 for Datavac, this is every PC enthusiasts' must have and almost every PC tech reviewer on YouTube has one. It's still going for $100 at Canada Computers, yes a price increase but not significantly.
