Metro Vacuum ED500 DataVac Electric Duster

Are you fed up of wasting money on canned air?.

If you need a powerful Air duster tool that never runs out of puff! no matter how much you need to use it, Look no further.

You could save yourself heap's of money by using this tool instead of buying canned airtime and time again. This electric duster easily blows away dust and debris which settles into the vents and fan cover's of Computer's, Laptop's ,Games Console's, Keyboard's,External HDDs, e.t.c., This Air Duster is also very good at removing the dust that can settle behind radiator's,Panel heaters, cupboard's and shelving e.t.c.

Metro DataVac ED500 Vacuum - Electric Duster

The DataVac ED500 electronic duster is a much greener way to Dust and clean, and a much safer, more cost-effective alternative to canned air.It can literally blast dust, debris and dirt, from your expensive computer's, Keyboard's,amplifier's and other electronic equipment, this ensures maximum efficiency and good temperature's.The DataVac ED500 can also be used for many other uses's around the home or workshop, such as dusting Book's, Blinds,Plants,Shelving, Radiators, air-vent's and filter's e.t.c., The DataVac ED500 electronic duster is also great for auto detailing work for those hard to get to areas.

Although it's called a metro vacuum, it doesn't actually suck up anything, it blows a very powerful stream of air through the various attached nozzle's.

It can be quite noisy due to the powerful 500 watt motor, which becomes more apparent when you constrict the flow of air for more precise cleaning or detailing work, but the unit gets less noisy when less air flow is required,

In my opinion, it's about the same noise level of a regular household Vacuum.

It can also become quite warm after prolonged use, This is due to the powerful motor housed inside the unit.

The Metro Vacuum ED500 has a removable dust filter on the bottom of the unit which pulls right out for easy cleaning, The Metro Vacuum ED500 also has about 10 ft of cable attached.

Reviews and Comments

The metro datavac electric duster 500, comes with many attachments and puts out a very powerful/consistent stream of air. Not like the expensive cans of air which loose power in a few short minutes of use and then the can become's cold , this Electric Duster blows the air hard for as long as you need it to.

You will not believe how much dust comes out of whatever you may be cleaning.

This Vacuum Duster is made mostly out of a heavy metal and has a plastic handle and soft plastic attachments. There is also a small foam filter on the bottom of the duster to prevent any air-born dust from getting recirculated as you use it. The power cord is a good 10 ft in length and made of a decent gauge wire.

Metro Datavac Electric Duster ed500 Far More Powerful

Than Canned Air

I have found that its also great for dusting off other things around the house, including, blinds, books in a book shelf e.t.c. this is so much better than using the canned air , and more powerful, with no waste.

I do recommend giving it a rest now and then. as it does get quite warm.

I'll be trying it out on the interior of my car before getting it washed.

This little duster is far more powerful than canned air, and over time will save you money (and help the environment of course),I used it to clean my PC's, works great. and you don't have to worry about running out like when using canned air. I Can imagine lots of other uses for it as well, dust gets everywhere and lack of air flow will surely kill your expensive electronics.

Surprisingly powerful for its size, I used it to clean out my keyboards, dust off potted house plants (be very careful with those), and much more.

The only negative downside that I can say about it is that it is quite loud, but I would say, No worse than a household vacuum cleaner. it's much More effective than canned air and it is also much safer to use than canned air.

I highly recommend this product.
