Does your electronic gadget claim that it’s Water resistant?
If so it carries an IP rating – What is IP? IP means – International Protection it is all about protecting the inside of your phone from the outside.
Most of our 21st century phones have an IP rating of IP67 & IP68 …….. Water & Dust resistant (probably not as resistant as we think) WHAT?!?
The first number (6) stands for keeping solids out and a 6 means not even dust can go in.
The second number (7) or (8) stands for water proofing, if it has a 7 it should be able to survive between 15cm and a 1m for 30minutes if it has an 8 should be able to survive up to 3m of water.
The good news: these days, a lot of our devices mainly mobiles are at least water-resistant.
The bad news: they’re probably not as resistant as you think.
But it is best to keep your electronics as dry as possible…… but if you and your business work on a construction site or work around water and dust, give us a call and we can help you find the perfect ruggedized phone such as ones provided by CAT.
