Compressed air may generate static so use with care!

I've been using an air compressor for many years to blow dust out of computers/TV sets/Amplifiers etc without any problem.

The compressor in your post has a very small air tank (receiver) and will only be able to deliver short puffs of air. I use one with a 6 litre receiver and that is a bit small really for continuous bursts - 24 litres would be better. However, the 6 litre one has served me well. Make sure you get an oil free compressor, you dont want to be blasting an oily film everywhere

You can get a dedicated air dusting nozzle attachment, something like this......Extended Air Duster Gun|Air Hose Accessories|Air Line Fittings

It's not a small tank, it hasn't got a tank...

yes - but see if you can get irreversible ones - they don'tspray liquid when horizontal/upside down which is good :)

I also use baby wipes -don't laugh-one ofthe best inventions for de-dusting things ever - as they don'ttend to split up/break up - just give them a wring out first to remove any excess liquid

useful on internal surfaces, heatsinks, brilliant cleaning fins of fans etc etc (not PCBs lol)
