    Hi,

    How would you guys clean the S-Pen duct on your devices? I have the Note 5 for over 2 weeks now and i have recognized that a bit of dust gets caught in the duct where the clicky part of the s-pen is everytime.
    I guess that's because the s-pen doesn't seal the duct 100%. I tried cleaning the duct with a q-tip but I guess over time I will push more and more dust inside with this method.
    Or should I just leave the duct alone?

    Thx

    I think i qtip is a bad idea because it can catch on the sensor. The cotton easily catches on stuff and can either clog or build up around the sensor.

    As far a cleaning i don't know, ive never cleaned it on any of the notes I've had.

    Maybe a can of air would be best, but someone else can tell tou better than I

    As the previous reply says, just use canned air. Every two weeks I do it. Along with my ps3, tv, and the power inverter in the truck. It only takes a minute but it saves the life of your devices.

    Ok thanks for the suggestion, didnt think about these air dusters

    The thing is... is it safe to use these air dusters for the s-pen duct? Usually they are called Air Dusters but contain high doses of propane and so on. I guess these chemicals can't really evaporate from inside the duct once sprayed in there...

    Spray on a low volume and hold well away from the port to minimize condensation.
