USB Mini Computer Vaccume, retail $ ()

The primary purpose of this product isn't to produce light, but since it has an LED light built in, I figured "what the H-E-Double-Bendy-Straws".

This is a miniature "dustbuster"-type vacumn cleaner designed to be used on and around your computer; it is bagless, and is powered right from the USB port found on most desktop pee-cees and many laptops.

Not only is it a vacume, it also has a white LED light built-in; you can activate this light without running the vaccuum itself.

To use this nifty little gadget, plug it into any free USB port on your desktop or laptop computer. The USB hook-up is such that it only taps into the +5 volt power connection; your computer will NOT launch a pop-up window telling you that it found a new USB device.

On the back of the vacumn, there is a large slide switch. Slide it to the right until it clicks once to turn the white LED on.

Slide it to the right some more (until it clicks again) to activate the motor.

(Use it to clean keyboards, your computer's ventilation slots, etc.)

It is supposed to come with a rubber attachment to clean between keys on keyboards, however, that attachment was not found when I received the vacumn.

Slide the switch all the way to the left to turn the motor and light off; it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to unplug it from your computer at this point either.

To empty it when necessary, grasp the rear portion of the vacume with one hand and the front portion with the other, and give a gentle counterclockwise twist so that the two halves rotate approximately 1/5th of a turn. The two halves should now easily come apart.

Empty the front portion into a garbage can; gently tap it against the inner edge of the garbage can if necessary.

Look at the black filter cap on the inside surface of the rear part of the vaccuummnne; use this cleaner's own brush on it to clean it over a garbage can if it looks dirty.

Fit the two halves of the vacum's body together; remembering how they were oriented when they came apart, and give a gentle clockwise twist of approximately 1/5th of a turn until they no longer rotate.

Your USB Mini Computer Vaccume is now ready to be put back to work - or be put away if you don't need it right away.

The USB Mini Computer Vaccume is powered from the USB port in your computer and does not use batteries of any type; therefore, I do not have to tell you which part to remove, gently place on the floor, and then shove under the couch with your foot so that the hungry, hungry carpet beetles think it's something yummy for their insect tummies and then rather emphatically tell you not to do that - to just set it aside instead.

This is a miniature vacume cleaner designed to be used on & around your computer, not a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused, so I won't try to drown it in the toliet tank, bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a patio, let my housemate's citty kats or my parent's dog's ghost piddle on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on it, use a large claw hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannoņata, drop it down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or perform other indecencies on this product that flashlights might have to have performed on them.

So this section of the web page about the USB Mini Computer Vacume will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Actually, since it was a Christmas gift from a loved one, these tests would not have been performed regardless of what type of product it was.

Product was given to me by my sister in Washington state as a Christmas present on 12-03-08.
Because it was a gift from a family member, the "" icon will be placed next to its listings on this website, indicating that possibly damaging and even potentially destructive tests will not be performed on it.

* Teachers (K-12 and college professors) and other educators please note:
The word "vacuum" was *INTENTIONALLY* misspelled on this web page; please do not call me to the rug about my spelling, or - heaven forbid - call "thuh spelinn poleese" on me - that simply isn't necessary.
