Two issues with compressed air in particular: getting liquid from the can on the sensor or cover leaving residue or cooling the sensor or cover to the point of cracking. In addition, some express fear of damage from excessive velocity of the canned air. The Hurricane canless air system eliminates these concerns. Sold at B&H and elsewhere.

I think this one is supposed to be better:

It's no good on the road, as it's not battery powered and is too large.

Yes, but, it actually provides good airflow, unlike the other. Read the reviews here:

Compared to the reviews for the Metro Vacuum, here:

I recommend the Hurricane unit, which has greater airflow than the standard models. A unit that is not reasonably small and usable on the road is essentially useless except at home. No doubt the 500 watt motor produces airflow, but if you can't take on the road, what use is it?

I do all of my cleaning at home, not on the road.
