Nitecore has been iterating on its BlowerBaby digital digital camera sensor blower because it first got here to market final spring and the brand new BlowerBaby 21 is designed to maintain the identical blowing energy however make it simpler and quicker to make use of.
The corporate was the first to launch an electronic camera blower final yr and adopted it up with a sequel in the BlowerBaby 2 (BB2) just six months later. Immediately it has launched the BB21, a follow-up that’s based mostly on the BB2 however focuses on making the entire system easier with out compromising sheer blowing power.
The BB21 maintains a 33.6-watt high-power brushless motor discovered within the BB2 (which is 51% extra energy than the primary era blower) that sends air via an optimized air duct and impeller that Nitecore says reduces wind resistance whereas additionally bettering energy. The result’s a handheld blower that has 2.7kPa of mud removing wind strain, which is greater than a traditional squeeze-blower that has 1.5kPa of wind strain. Additionally it is extra constant than a typical blower, which has to pause to tug air again in earlier than it could actually expel once more.
A traditional blower maxes out at about 21.7 miles per hour of wind velocity whereas the BB2 and BB21 attain 49.7 miles per hour.
The place the BB21 begins to separate itself from the BB2 is in how it’s used. Nitecore diminished or modified a few of the modes and reconfigured it to function with just one button, making it simpler to begin and cease. Mainly, Nitecore decided that the dial management on the BB2 was too sophisticated and pointless for a product with such a easy goal, so it did away with that and changed it with a a lot easier two-button interface.
One button modifications amongst three blowing modes: turbo (for essentially the most the BB21 may give), optical (which is for cleansing a digital camera sensor), and silent (which has lower than 55 decibels of noise). The BB21 additionally retains the power to magnetically connect brushes and a fast launch system that hides that presently connected brush contained in the physique of the blower. The BB2 has an LED mild on the tip that the BB21 doesn’t have, nevertheless.
Maybe the most important change between the BB2 and BB21 is Nitecore swapped out the aluminum alloy physique casing of the BB2 for a totally plastic physique on the BB21, which reduces the burden from 210 grams to 204 grams. The BB21 remains to be charged through USB-C.
The BlowerBaby 21 is out there beginning right this moment for $69.95, a $20 worth discount in comparison with the BB2.
