    very good price

    • +5

      It's AUD.

      • It's will check out with USD, they tell you that when you click add to cart.

    • +3

      It's actually 28.5 USD = ~37.8-38 AUD

      • That is most likely the spot rate. If checking out with PayPal, expect to pay about 3-4% more than the that.

        • +25

          Anyone using PayPal's currency conversion should hand in their ozbargain membership immediately!

          • @miarn: whats the better way…credit card?

            • @franco cozzo: Any card that doesn't charge international transaction fees and has a relatively good exchange rate.

            • +4

              @franco cozzo: Credit card without currency conversion fees for OS purchases and Master card currency rates.

            @miarn: I used paypal and selected USD as the currency. Got charged 38.11 by my bank

  • +5

    $39.70 AUD with Paypal and free shipping - still a good price…

    • +4

      You can choose to pay in USD in paypal.

      • +8

        This. Guys, don't use PayPal's rip-off exchange rates. Pay in USD and use a credit card that has no foreign currency exchange fees. There's plenty of them out there, e.g. 28 Degrees MasterCard.

        • +5

          Orange Everyday account debit cards from ING have no foreign currency exchange fees too. As long as you meet the criteria (5 card transactions and $1,000 deposit per month if I remember correctly) you're good to go without fees.

          Only once have I been short changed by using my bank's exchange rate where PayPal's was better. Definitely an anomaly, that one.

          citibank plus. no hassle in meeting any criteria.

    Purchased because its on ozbargain, not because I need it

    • +28

      I saw your comment and did the same because i follow smart people

      • +5

        i was feeling a bit dumb for buying this that i wont need to use very often but now im feeling smart too :)

        • +9

          I was feeling smart for not buying this because I won't need to use very often but now I'm feeling dumb :(

      • +1

        canceled my order for this and ordered the 2 in 1 vac blower for the almost double the blowing power 33000 RPM vs. 60000 RPM now i feel like a real genius :)

      • Don't forget to buy some GME

  • +1

    Price is actually $28.50 USD. Worked out to $38.11 AUD with ING.

  • +3

    How are these compared to compressed cans, in terms of the strengtht of the air coming out?

    • +3

      They are pretty good - the nozzle isn't as fine of course but they generate a bit of pressure….just bought a 2nd one…

    • +27

      Surprisingly good. Battery lasts a long time as well. Mine also doubles as a cat chaser when I need to get work done from home

    • So the air pressure should be alot more than a hairdryer ?

  • +6

    Bought because why not

  • Ordered one hoping it’s powerful enough

  • Thanks OP, been waiting on a deal for a while. Even better than the unobtainable deal posted last week

  • "Buy now, cry later", or in my case, "buy again now, cry later".

    Because more than one is never enough (specially at this price) &/or family.

    • Families that blow together stay together.

      Cause we're family.

    Purchased to replace hairdryer

  • +23

    Man, lock down has been so expensive for me. Already completed two credit card minimum spends for bonus points.

  • Glad I didn't buy a datavac or whatever would've cost way more.

  • How does it compare to the model that sucks in terms of blowing power anyone know

  • Nice. Thanks OP. Picked up the upgraded duster/vacuum model for $66 delivered! Bargain!

    • Considered it as well but the blower hasn't been upgraded, nor the battery (vs other brand versions).

      Correction : almost double the rpm!

      • can you clarify? @bargainshooter

        I bought the upgraded version also but before I saw this comment. Is it not as strong as the non vacuum version?

    • Damn it, because of you I got the upgraded one too. And the basic one as well….

  • +3

    Does this filter the air so that it is clean enough for blowing dust from things like camera sensors? Or will it just blow dust onto the sensor?

  • +2

    I have one of these. Its decent. I mostly use it to flare up my bbq coals though!

  • looks like a popular product, what is used for mostly?

    • +61

      Occasional quick blow job around the house.

      • +2

        Great! this will keep the wife happy.

        • -1

          Because this item can do the job on her behalf? :)

          • @b0b0: So she won't keep getting headaches.

  • +1

    Any good for cleaning Lego?

  • +6

    Is this the right product to clean computer hardware/electronics?

    • +5

      Bingo!

      • +3

        Thank you

  • +1

    Does it work well for car air filter cleaning purpose?

    • Can't see why not, just don't hold it too close in order to not tear the filter.

      • Is it strong enough to get all the dirt stuck on the air filter out? I have been thinking changing it on every service is totally waste of money.

    • +4

      yeah its quite handy, I've used it for that purpose. As well as using it to start/blow my charcoal bbqs. half yearly PC dusting of course

  • +1

    Do they have a battery strength gauge on them? I will only use it once in a blue moon and like to store batteries I don't use at 40-50%.

    • +1

      No, just an indicator light when charging.

  • +7

    Non-replaceable battery? So when the battery dies you have to throw it out?

    • +1

      Hmm that might be a deal breaker

    • Not easily like early 2000's mobiles, but it might be possible to replace, only issue might be sealing the unit back up.

  • +2

    How well does this go for general dusting around the house because I can't be bothered moving ornaments?

    • +5

      they have a handheld vacuum unit that probably is better suited for that use

  • +4

    Bought my daily unnecessary OZB purchase and it's only 9am…

    • +1

      "Wiinnnnniiiiinnnngggggggg" - Charlie Sheen style!

      • $$$$$ Hookers and suitcases of blow vs a handheld airduster?!

  • Buy now… think about how to use it later

    • +1

      "This is the way"

  • Trying to figure out why I was charged US$29.36, when it showing as US$28.50 on their site…

    Paid directly, instead of through PayPal with no foreign exchange fee card.

  • Tried to purchase but got an error message saying couldn't ship to Australia. Anyone else have this issue?

    • Yup, having the same issue

      • Everyone all of a sudden are having the same problem, looks like OZB scared off the Americans when they realised postage was going to make this promotion a non profitable exercise.

    • Same got the same error

  • I am getting the error - This order can’t be shipped to your location. Contact the store for more information.
    I live in VIC. Is it just me or somebody else?

  • Can't ship to Australia?

  • They removed Australia, most other countries are there

  • How are you guys managing to check out? There's literally no option for Australia in the shipping details section.

  • says cannot ship to australia?

  • Should I get this, or spend the big bucks on a MetroVac?

  • +1

    Doesn't ship to Australia for me. For some reason Australia isn't in the drop down box at checkout

    • +5

      Looks like they updated to not ship to AU.

      The item you added doesn’t ship to your location. Remove it to check out, or contact the store.
