In Topic: Strobe Problems and the Battery Compartment.

I don't think I have ever washed or rinsed the inner cap of the strobe and I am sure I never have lubed the connectors. Theoretically these should never get wet in any way so never need cleaning. The contacts do occasionally get compressed too much and might need a slight bend to get them back to making contact.

I know the battery compartment of the Inon strobes have o-ring seals, but I flooded one and the whole strobe head was full of water, I suspect that the battery compartment got a real high pressure event that allowed a leak past the seal. In any case, I agree that the major strobe guys have mostly figured this stuff out.

Yeah and cold California salt water with white eneloops also make gas. Not clear though that they continue to work.

I don't suspect that the Nauticam housing is in very wide distribution yet. And it is not clear that it is so much better than the EM1-II
