    Several of my USB flash drives have gone through the wash, and still work.They were not advertised as being waterproof. I wonder what's special about this one.

    Generally speaking the difference is "supposed" to be that a waterproof flash drive can't get water inside at all, that both the plug and casing are sealed water tight, while water can get into a non-sealed drive then may or may not be a problem.

    If it dries out before the next use it isn't a problem. If the water happens to deposit just in corners or the PCB is pretty clean from the factory, again it usually isn't a problem.

    The problem comes in when the water dissolves traces of water soluble flux left behind on the PCB and then this acidic solution dissolves metal component leads forming conductive bridges which can remain even after all the water has evaporated.

    Although factories do rinse off the flux, they seem to use recycled water or at least an insufficient amount to the extent that many computer component PCBs do still have some residual flux on them... looks sort of hazy white colored.

    Customers report this model is fairly slow, even by USB2 flash drive standards.
