I use DeoxIT part number D100L-25C. Its a dropper bottle with a fine
capilary out the cap. I think its enough to last a lifetime of full time
servicing because a connector or switch contact really only needs about
a quarter drop of the stuff. I don't like the spray stuff soaking up
insulation around switch contacts.
