No, that's not phonetic
Some battery packs aren't really waterproofed very effectively, so a good plastic dip is in order. This is after 3 coats in Plasti Dip. Seems like decent stuff.
Are there different types of dip or just one? I think I might try this.tscheezy said:Some battery packs aren't really waterproofed very effectively, so a good plastic dip is in order. This is after 3 coats in Plasti Dip. Seems like decent stuff.
That's the stuff I used. I got it at Lowe's in the paint section. It was in the rack with the spray paints. You slowly lower the battery pack down into the can of liquid, then slowly (over the course of about 15-20 seconds) lift the battery back out. Hang it up for about 45 minutes, and then repeat.gmcttr said:
Well the liquid plastic, while it is a liquid, is a very viscus liquid (think molasses) that will not penetrate the very small gap at the top and bottom of the battery pack. Waters viscosity on the other hand is almost nil, so it will slip through tiny cracks and openings to short out electronics.schlim said:I need to waterproof a few batteries and came across this thread. So even though the batteries are susceptible to water, completely submerging them into liquid plastic won't hurt them?
Do I need to seal anything up on the pack first before dunking them? Seems odd, but worth a shot so long as the results are good.
