I last purchased one of these Fellowes Air dusters about 6 months ago, as my previous one had run out, and my laptop was starting to look dusty, and dirty again, especially in between the keys, and around the edge of the screen.
I got it from my local PC World, where I paid about £6 for it.
These air dusters are basically a pressurised aerosol can which is packed full of pure compressed air or inert gas. The 350 ml can is yellow in colour, with a red plastic cap, and it has a plastic nozzle at the top, which can be pressed down to eject the compressed air. Also included with the can is a red plastic straw which can be inserted into the nozzle to help to aim the air into a precise area such as between the keys of a PC or laptop keyboard.
The beauty with these little air dusters is that they are invertible, meaning that the can will also spray out the air, even if it is turned upside down (when trying to reach difficult areas), as the air dusters are fully invertible.
The main purpose of these air dusters is that they can be used for the removal of dust and other airborne contamination from very delicate or difficult to reach areas of electrical and electronic equipment.
The air comes out of the can with a quite powerful force, which is plenty to shift any dust or light contamination from pretty much wherever you like. The only slight consideration when using these air dusters is that if the can is shaken quite violently while spraying the air, then there is a danger of some small ice cold liquid contents coming from the nozzle, mixed into the air stream, which is VERY cold, and can cause frostbite if sprayed onto skin, according to the warning on the can.
Along with using my Air duster for cleaning out my keyboard, computer screen, inside the printer, and the TV screen surface, I have also found it very useful for blowing away cobwebs in the corners of the roof, or in between kitchen cupboards and units.
It also comes in handy for just simply dusting off surfaces, without the need for getting the polish and a cloth out (although it does only move the dust onto another area or onto the floor).
I also use it to clean around the little buttons and knobs on various remote controls around the house, along with my car radio, and dashboard.
As mentioned above, I did buy my current can about 6 months ago, and I would estimate that the can is still about half full, meaning that a can of this does last quite a while.
The power of the spray does begin to fade a little as the can becomes quite empty, until it just eventually stops coming out altogether once the can is completely empty.
As the can is pressurised, it should not be exposed to temperatures exceeding 50°C, and should not be pierced or burnt, and it should not be sprayed onto a naked flame.
The contents of the can are 100% ozone friendly, and HFC free.
Thanks for reading.

Cleaning the more difficult places: Fellowes Invertible Air Duster
Fellowes is a known brand for cleaning your computer, laptop or other devices like your printer. You have the wipes and brushes to clean the surface of the keyboard and making sure your screen is clean. I really enjoy the brand as it may not be the cheapest one out there, is definitely a brand I trust. In a cleaning frenzy I bought not only the wipes but also a Fellowes invertible air duster to make sure my laptop would be super clean.
The Fellowes Invertible Air Duster comes in a yellow can and on top you find a red plastic straw. The can contains pressurised air and should remove all dust, debris from your keyboard and other electronically equipment. The surface is normally easily to clean but this air duster is designed to clean the interior within for example under the keys of the keyboard. I use this air duster to clean my keyboard but also the inside of the printer which I normally can't reach.
The straw of the can makes it very easy to reach all the difficult places and is very easy to use. The air dust is quiet strong and it sprays out pressurised air and it actually removes the dust and more important the light debris from under the keyboard. It does work and normally I can't get the debris removed because it's almost impossible to reach.
I almost have this Fellowes Invertible Air Duster for over a year now and I hardly use it anymore. I think in the beginning I liked the idea and the laptop was dirty so the product was very handy to use. Since then I used the product maybe once or twice but that's not so much a negative thing. My laptop just doesn't get that dirty so I don't really need to use it that often. When it gets then it's very handy. You can get this air dust for around 8 pounds which is a reasonable price and will last you for quite a while. It just really depends on how dirty you are.
Thank you for reading my review :-)
I must admit that I dont put a dust cover on any of my computer equiptment so I must also admit that it does get dusty.
Now normally I would just get a duster and dust but, a lot of times after I have dusted something has gone wrong and it is usually my fault!
So I have decided not to dust it.
Having decided that I could not let the dust pile sky high before someone done something about it.
This is where Fellowes invertible Air Duster comes in.
It comes in a an aerosol spray. It is about 8 or 9 inches high. On the top it has a long red plastic straw like nozzle.
The can is full of just compressed air.
Press down on the nozzle and air comes out through the straw and you can aim it exactly where you want and aim for the dust to go exactly where you want and not into any of the parts. You press in short sharp bursts.
This is especially useful for cleaning the dust out of the inside of computers where you would be surprised how much dust collects there.
It is great also for the keyboard in between all the keys.
Do not spray on wires though as this is extremely flammable.
If you buy this in PC World it can be about £7 but you can find the same item in some Tesco stores, not all, for £3.45 which is a lot cheaper.
