    It means the light can withstand constant immersion in water.

    Hope this helps.
    IP Explanation and Ratings
    EN 60529 outlines an international classification system for the sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment against the intrusion into the equipment of foreign bodies (i.e. tools, dust, fingers) and moisture. This classification system utilizes the letters "IP" ("Ingress Protection") followed by two or three digits. (A third digit is sometimes used. An "x" is used for one of the digits if there is only one class of protection; i.e. IPX4 which addresses moisture resistance only.)IPX8 protected against submersion 1m+.So yes it is waterproof,but not dive rated.

    The question is for the IPX-8 Standard not for the word Waterproof morón

    IPX8 = Water-Tight Equipment (protected against the effects of submersion; tested to 12 feet/3.6 meters for 24 hours). I asked that same question about the L1T and that's the answer that MattK from Battery Junction gave me.

    Yea, I think that right although with IPX8, the testing conditions really depend on what the manufacturer wants. I was thinking of IPX7

    IPX-8 Standard immersion is 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.

    I find the derogatory remarks on this site disgusting and disappointing. That's why you rarely see me around. I prefer to deal with adults.

    With any website / forum where people post, you're going to find those who are immature.

    Fortunately I find CPF to be 99% very mature and educated people.

    Huh? You dug up a months-old thread to malign this entire forum based on the remarks of someone who's been banned from it?

    Good question from LukeA. I don't know how this ill-natured thread managed to escape being closed before, but I'm closing it now as being dysfunctional beyond any reasonable future expectation of normality - and it is in the wrong sub-forum anyway.

    A new thread on this subject may be opened if someone wishes to do this, but please post it in the correct place.

    I will close this one by remarking that for flashlight purposes, the IPX8 standard is practically meaningless, as it is a static rather than dynamic test.

    It is a totally useless standard of assessment for any equipment that may need to be actually operated underwater.
    Resistance is futile...
