    Which vacuums are ESD safe?

    Is it correct that any battery operated vacuum cleaner is safe to clean the inside of the case and motherboard?

    The fact its battery powered means its probably more likely to build up static as there is no ground.

    Stick with compressed air. I acctually use compressed butane as i have loads of it...

    Thanks for the replies.
    I have always used compressed air before but thought a vacuum cleaner is a one of purchase especially if you have a few PC's to do!

    I use compressed air too! I really wouldn't want to use a vacuum cleaner of any sort! Knowing my luck, something would come loose and I would suck it up!

    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.
