Waterproof, Water-Resistant and Washable Peripherals

By November 30, 2012

Follow me on:

My 6-year-old son is always a little curious when I'm reviewing a new device. Of course, he likes it best when I involve him in some way, but sometimes it's just fun watching Mom dunk an expensive-looking device into a tub of water. I'll admit that the water tests are also one of my favorites to do because mixing water and electronics are usually two things you don't ever, ever want to do. (And most of these are just too big to dump in a bowl of rice to fix.)

Over the summer, the Computer Peripherals site tested a wealth of devices that boast the ability to withstand water in one way or another. Here is a list of some of the best ones found from that time (and in the past) whether they're waterproof, water-resistant or washable. Not sure of the difference? That's covered too in this list.
