hi members , i am writing to get a confirm with using my Air Duster that runs on mains power. I had a scare when using it on my Denon Amplifier , thankfully it didn't kill it it was another issue that has been resolved.

so yeah i want to use it on my PC's safely , my PC's have a 3 prong power cable and the Duster
comes with a Anti-Static wrist strap. If i'm correct i plug in my PC to the mains with the 3 prong power cable , and have the PC's power supply switched off and off at the mains outlet. Then connect the Wrist Strap to the PC's Case and then i can use the Duster safely.

if there was to be a Static discharge from the Air Duster it will pass through to the Earth on the 3 prong power cable

is this right ?

chat soon

That sounds fine.

The PC doesn't even need to be plugged in, if there's a leakage path to the duster.

You might still want the wrist strap being on your wrist, if the duster tends to charge you up as well. Or hold a finger to the chassis, that connects you up -- same idea.

Wow you look quite normal for a geek.

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
