REVIEW – I stopped buying canned air for dusting because at $5 to $10 per can, it just didn’t make sense. I have an air compressor in the garage, and a small rubber bulb for dusting small things like camera parts. I think the iDOO electric compressed air duster and vacuum might fit nicely in between the two extremes.

What is it?

Design and features

The iDOO Electric Compressed Air Duster and Vacuum resembles a miniature hair dryer, without the cord.

One of the tips that comes in the box is a rubber extension, which is handy if you don’t want to bang into things.

The metal cone that came attached screws off and can be replaced with a narrow, plastic tip to concentrate air flow.

Flip the iDOO Electric Compressed Air Duster and Vacuum around and you’ve got a handheld vacuum. Note that the instructions state the screw in cone on the left shouldn’t be attached during vacuuming.iDOO electric duster vac 11

There is a reusable filter cone inside. Instructions suggest rinsing this out with water to clean.

A USB-C charging cable comes in the box. I’m always glad to see USB-C for charging!

The charging port is found on the handle. There are three blue LEDs that serve as a battery level indicator.

If you press and hold the button, the iDOO Electric Compressed Air Duster and Vacuum spins up to full and continues to blow until you release the trigger.

You can also double-click the button and the duster starts in “low”. One blue LED lights up. Click again for medium (two LEDs) and again for high (three LEDs). Click again to stop.

I decided to compare the performance of the iDOO against a rubber bulb and a can of air against some uncooked rice.

The can of compressed air was powerful and instant. The iDOO duster takes a few moments to come up to speed. The narrow attachment didn’t blow with as much force, but was more focused.

Finally, I attached the vacuum bits and set out to suck up some rice.

The iDOO did pretty well, although the dust chamber fills up pretty quick.

What I like

  • Compact (5 inches tall)
  • USB-C charging
  • Doubles as a vacuum

What I’d change

  • The battery is not replaceable

Final thoughts

If you can’t be bothered to buy new cans of compressed air, the iDOO Electric Compressed Air Duster and Vacuum is a nice alternative. No more empty cans added to landfills!

  2. I also stopped using canned air to clean computers. My solution was to buy a hair dryer with a “cool” setting on it. $18 and my problem was solved.

  3. I checked on Amazon and ran a Fakespot analysis on the customer reviews. Fakespot flagged the product as an “F”. Not good.

  4. Can’t speak for this specific model/brand, however I purchased a ~$70 knock-off about 5 years ago. It doesn’t suck (no vacuum function hehe). However I use the thing at least ONCE a week where I would normally use a can of air. In the 5ish years I’ve had one i’m sure it’s paid for itself several times over by now. The battery is starting to show it’s age tho and I only get about 15 minutes of use between charges now. This isn’t a major issue considering I tend to use it only in 20-60 second bursts.

    If you use Canned air often I would definitely look into something like this. I am intrigued by the vacuum option on this tho.
