    While buying a waterproof gadget, check the IP code. These codes signify the degree of protection a gadget provides against dust, water and minor accidents-like phone falling from your hand on a hard surface. For instance a gadget graded IPx7 means it’s water resistant for 1 metre depth for 30 minutes. IPx8 means 2 metre depth for one hour. Bear in mind that there are no hyphens or spacing in a code. A genuine code will always read as IPx6 and never IP x6 or IPx-6.
