Canned Air

Why is this stuff so expensive? CA$15.93 on Amazon. I don't mean in the "stop being poor sense" but for what it actually is.

Do any of you know if these are a good alternative?

    It's expensive because you live in the us and because none of your country men are capable of making one lol

      Yes, don't know why anyone would buy compressed air when this exists.

    150 bucks buys you a cheap compressor for a lifetime of compressed air if you don't mind the noise

      Oh no heaven forbid you bought the equipment to make and sold it. Why that's impossible.

      Something like this is quite affordable to me. It's probably worth it for everything else I can do with it. I'll consider it.

        Probably want to throw a drier on these they tend to suck up a lot of water. Also make sure you're not blasting the board at 90psi or whatever lol. Cap it at like 40 or 50 psi. But yeah, much better investment especially if you drive.

    I am not going to get an air compressor. If I need one I'll buy one for like a dollar because I'm in fricking Thailand.

    Do you guys not own electric leaf blowers? They move way more air than whatever handheld or can device and the're less than $80 at Home Depot or Lowes.

      I am a Stihl addict, and have a few. Forget electric though, I'll bring my gas (BG 86) one into my room and just blast air out of my fan blades, a bit of exhaust never hurt anyone.

      They also generate a ton of static at the end of the nozzle, don't put one of those close to sky electronics you care about.
      A compressor is a better option.

        Could you wrap the end of the nozzle in aluminum foil and ground that?

    You can refill those with cig lighter gas which is 1/2 or 1/3 the price.
    They're the same thing.

      they're filled with refrigerant not butane or actual air you ninny. either r134 tetrachloroethane, the stuff they've been using in cars for the past 20 years, or r152 dichloroethane which was never officially used in cars but is actually an approved replacement for 134 (and also works excellent in old r12 systems).

        No, some actually do use butane, I've bought one before. None use chlorocarbons though, they are banned by the Montreal protocol. Only fluorocarbons.

          yes I did mean -floroethane not chloro, my b. I've seen butane as a propellant all the time, but never as a straight up duster. seems like a slight fire hazard and I'm sure it being a hydrocarbon some plastics and inks wouldn't do so hot with it.

    All you need is a strong hair dryer with the cold blowing capability. Canned air is only useful for cleaning the CPU cooler.

    Because druggies huff them for a cheap high. The price has risen to reduce the harm from that. If they were sold nearer cost (like a dollar a can) they would be sold out everywhere and there'd be a much bigger problem.

    Because it's literally a can of propane, butane, or some perfluorocarbon.

    In my third world country I can get a 230g can for about $7 and I already think it's expensive af for what it is. I thought it would be cheaper in the first world.
    If you use it often it's definitely better to get a small electric duster, you can find one for the price of about 4 or 5 cans.

      >pay 100 bucks for a one time use
      >compressor air can and does tear caps off boards and causes other damage
      computers just arent engineered to be manhandled
      and when factoring in that compressed air can cool your equipment, and thus cause condensation, it isnt the best idea to begin with
      (if a brush would do, thats what you should be using)

        My mistake, I meant an air duster. Made the dumb "blows compressed air = air compressor" mistake

    Imagine not having an air compressor. You gays probably call a tow truck or something if your tire goes flat.

      I have one to put air in my tires (though in about a decade and a half of driving, I've never had a flat) Is there something like an air-duster sized bottle that has a tire valve on it, that I can fill with my air compressor and then leave in my room for when I need to blow dust out of a heatsink?

    Buy isobutane camping gas, and swap nozzle from a duster.
    Isobutane is $3 or so. It stinks but other than stinky chemical it is same shit they use in some dusters.
