            This is a weird tool. Yes, everything is built into one tool and it cleans fine, but the graphite section you're supposed to use to clean your lenses is a bit awkward and I'm not really sure how to use it. The top comes completely off but also flips open. It's hard to describe

            Clarification on graphite

                First of all, I have bought 6-in-1 kit from other place, but from picture seen here, blower is the same.
                It doesnt whistle like some generic are, so its safe to use it pretty much everywhere. Blower tip itself could be bit longer so you can really move it in close enough to the CMOS in body (not too close anyway), and thats a flaw on this blower. It has different hole from intaking(had to change this word due profanity filter)air in, so it will not intake air and dust from your lenses or body and then just blow them back out which is good thing.

                Now as of polishing tip. I see LOADS of flame and comments "some dust is present on cleaning tip and i dont want to mess my lens with it".
                That "dust" is graphite. It is NON abrasive element when used in Earth environment. It is often used as lubricant (well with other components of course) as well. Im saying this because in vacuum or environments where there is no humidity at all it will act as abrasive. So unless you are taking your Vanguard blower into space to take picture of Moon, that graphite will do just fine. For sure better than scratching your lenses with your fingernails trying to remove that spots that will never wear off.
                So, clean large dust with brush, blow small ones with blower and polish/remove speckels with polishing tip, and clean lense with cleaning cloth.

                      This product is nice and compact. It can fit in my smaller bag and works well. The only downside is that you have to remove the brush tip in order to use the air pump. Other than that it works very well.

                      A little big to carry with you in a bag, but has it all in one piece: brush, blower, cleaner and and a pholishing sponge. And it's retractable!! very handy!!!

                      Comments about Vanguard PLC Air Blower, Brush and Polishing Tip:

                      It is an all in one tool for cleaning lens. It is 6 ¾ inches long and fits into the camera bag, but not a shirt pocket. I found awkward to use and the cleaning tip uses a polishing powder. The lens brush can be used as is by pulling back its cover to expose the bristles. To use the blower, it needs to be removed (unthreaded) from the brush. For most cleanings, I remove the brush and use it by hand and use the blower and then the brush. It is a small blower and is best used with the brush to remove larger dust and grit. The other end of the tool is the polishing tip. It is removed by pulling its cover off the blower body. Extra graphite? is in the tip of its cover. The brush or the micro cloth is need it remove the polish from the lens. I am not sure how I feel about using an abrasive on the lens, so I don't expect to use it often. (I really like the Lenspen and its dry cleaning tip. Its brush is larger.) The micro cloth is a good weight and size, 11 ½ inches square.
