    I think it is portable enough but it does weigh 16kg, It does depend on the size of your site, You can plug it in and 'charge' the cylinder with air then move to a location and clean it, and yes the pipe on the spray attachment is long enough to put the compressor on table/floor and clean the projector whilst still attached to the ceiling.

    When i used to work at pc world we had a compressor from Halfords i think was really good, no problems with it, although the ones with tanks are better, due to the fact they are not always really loud, they are slightly more expensive. Plus with a compressor you dont get the freezing cold air coming out if you try to get dust out of a hard to reach corner!

    You've got to love DLP projectors for not needing as much cleaning

    The last lot of tins I got were 5 Star ones at 5 a tin (large tins) with free delivery from Document Express (Jenny on 01616225047).

    @FN-GM: There's different types of spray... you need to make sure that you get the non-flammable stuff - there's several different types!

    We purchased an air compressor from screwfix with a 10 metre hose. Cost us 100. Don't have to worry about the flame thrower effect and its more powerful than a can of air (Plus environmentally friendly too!)

    if you use a compressor you may want a water trap on there aswell so theres no spitting water

    I just googled rechargeable compressor... there appear to be cordless products out there. I don't know how long they would last per charge, but at least you would not trip over the cable
