Finding a keyboard vacuum cleaner that’s small enough to work the tiny crevices between your keys but still provides substantial suction can be a chore.

Especially when that cleaning gel and compressed air duster simply aren’t cutting it.

I thought I was alone in this quest for the best mini vacuum for my keyboard and other electronic devices until publishing my article “Gifts for freelancers: 27 gift ideas the entrepreneur in your life will love.”

In that article, I also included a link to my all-time favorite cordless desk vacuum. And to date, it has been by far and beyond the best seller from that list.

So, I also decided to double down and create a ranked list of the best keyboard vacuums – ideal for use on PC keyboard, laptop, electronic devices, or even your car!

Each item on this list boasts its own unique set of features, at a variety of price points.

Without further ado, here’s my list of the best computer vacuums ranked.

color coral vacuum

1. ColorCoral Cordless Vacuum Dust Cleaner – $25.99 

And if it’s powerful suction you’re after, this cordless vacuum by ColorCoral is the cream of the crop. 

It’s an Amazon’s Choice pick with over 200 four and five-star reviews. It features a 60W motor with a washable HEPA filter and is capable of vacuuming up bugs, hair, crumbs, beans and small pieces of metal.

It’s also cordless with a rechargeable battery (by USB cable). 

Plus, it’s multi-use. It comes with two attachments – a soft-bristled brush nozzle and a flat nozzle – which are great for clearing everything from rugged surfaces to upholstery.

This little sucker (pun intended) can even be used for detailing work on your car or furniture, easily tackling any nooks and crannies you put in its path. 

Dirt and crumbs, you’re officially on notice.

The easyob vacuum

2. EASYOB Keyboard Cleaner & Mini Portable Handheld Cordless Vacuum – $22.20

I also love this EASYOB portable handheld cordless device.

Featuring a 50W motor (stronger than some full-sized dust busters), this small handheld vacuum can deliver some serious suction. 

It can easily tackle a multitude of tiny particles including dust, paper scraps, crumbs, pet hair, food debris, ash and even small gravel.

It’s USB rechargeable, features a HEPA filter, and comes with two interchangeable vacuum nozzles for hard-to-reach places. 

The battery life isn’t phenomenal – it only lasts up to 40 minutes of continuous use on a full charge. But as long as you’re only using it on small spaces like your desk, office or car, I can’t imagine you need more than 40 minutes of continuous use anyway.

It’s also not quite as compact or as attractive as some of our other picks, but this Amazon’s Choice is a great option for those who care more about power than looks. 

Plus it retails for less than $23. 

odistar vacuum in orange

3. ODISTAR Charging Cordless Desktop Vacuum – $15.98

I bought this little vacuum for my husband because it represents the best of both worlds.

It’s sleek, just powerful enough to handle small messes.

It also has nearly 7,000 5-star reviews on Amazon.

Featuring 360-degree rotation, this mini vacuum comes in your choice of white and orange and provides up to 400 minutes of cleaning time per charge. It also boasts 9,000 RPMS of suction. 

And here’s the best part, it retails for less than $16. 

I love the fact that I don’t feel like I have to unplug and hide this little mini-keyboard vacuum when it’s not in use. It blends in perfectly with my other electronics and just feels easier to maneuver.

In my opinion, if you’re looking for a mid-range computer vacuum cleaner that can handle small messes with decent suction, this is a winner.

4. Tihoo Mini Handheld Cordless Desk Vacuum – $19.99

This little cordless desk vacuum is similar to the last but deserves its own honorable mention. It is a tiny bit more expensive price than the last one. But it packs a surprising 12,000 RPMS of suction and even works on upholstered surfaces. 

It, too, has a removable bottom half for each cleaning and is powered by two AA batteries. 

It’s also portable measuring in at just 3.9″x 3.9″x 3.9″ inches and weighs less than 8 ounces.

It’s also a favorite in its category with over 1000 mostly favorable reviews on Amazon. But most verified buyers warn that it struggles with pet fur and needs to be cleaned out frequently. 

lady bug vacuum

5. Mini Cordless Tabletop Crumb Sweeping Lady Bug – $10.99

This cute little lightweight cordless vacuum is the smallest USB mini vacuum on the list. It measures just 4.1 x 3.1 x 2.8 inches.

It’s also the most affordable.

And at the time of this writing, it’s an Amazon’s Choice pick. It has nearly 9,000 four and five-star reviews and retails for less than $11. 

It’s completely wireless and runs on two AA batteries making it ideal for travel. And it has a detachable bottom for fast and easy cleanup.

It’s built for removing crumbs, small debris and ash in the home, car or office. And it comes with a 1-year warranty.

But be aware – as one might expect for a battery-powered vac of this size, its suction is weaker than the others on our list. However, if you’re looking for something you can easily throw in a glove box or backpack while on the go, this is a great contender.

Do you own any of the above-mentioned mini vacuum cleaners? I would love to hear your personal review in the comments below. And don’t forget to connect with me on social media.
