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.
