    Seems to be the same thing, but with a static strap.

    It has a ground pin (which the normal version does not) and the accessories use conducting plastic;
    but I think the normal version is probably OK

    I have heard horror stories about dry gas generating enough static to destroy chips.

    The worst is when there is particulate matter in the air (there are lightening strikes in volcano plumes),
    and it might be argued that the very dust one is blowing off might generate static. Vehicles in sandstorms
    can get charged up.

    Planes have static dischargers

    Compare against the cost of 'compressed air' ($4 a can)

    It is not actually air but 1,1-Difluoroethane (a non CFC refrigerant)
