ReAir is a small refillable
version of compressed air
(by Read Right) designed to be refillable via hand pump, air compressor
, or a small specialized
air compressor (by Read Right, of course). The whole idea is that it uses plain honest air
) and is refillable
, instead of disposable
cans that contain who knows what. The 5 oz. cans should be discarded after a hundred uses though, due to moisture
buildup in the can (accroding to R R).
The idea sounds neat
enough but the cans cost about $8 apiece, and the specialized compressor costs some $60+. For that price, you could get a big air tank
and a set of nozzles
that would last forever and you could refill at Quiktrip
. We actually did this at a computer shop I worked at. The little cans will store up to one hundred pounds of pressure, but it usually isn't enough to blow out a very dusty system without a refill or three halfway through.
My advice: Save up for a nice air compressor.
