How do emags hold up in the rain?

I know, dumb question, but I'm 90 percent sure it'll be raining tomorrow. How do emags / ptp microemags hold up in the rain? Should I worry or just wing it?


Thanks.

You might want to exercise caution, considering there are no more boards.

Ah.

*Looks at caulking gun randomly nearby quizzically.*

On a serious note I have no intention of putting it in puddles, I'm just more worried about having it out for 6 hours in good rain. Don't know what to do.

Those emag batteries are kind of large to be taunting them with water. 18 volts and a lot of capacity. You're supposed to break out a mechanical mag.

You do keep a mech mag don't you?

Holy **** on the sfl. Though if I dropped any marker into a lake, I wouldn't leave it there overnight. :P

And Dukie, should've thought of that. Then again, I kinda did the whole on off pin trick, and without a level 10 I chop paint when I go in mech mode.

Luckily though, I had no problems with rain, since the rain stopped!

And, if you are really worried about the board, then you can coat it with clear fingernail polish. Just make sure you dont get it in the connectors or buttons. Works on on the boards that I used to have.

The fact that there are no more boards make me wonder how many people would be interested in a new drop-in-replacement board and what they would be willing to pay.
