Salt Water all the products classified under waterproof are NOT salt waterproof (marine proof). Products will need to be cleaned by fresh water after using. Manufacturer warranty/guarantee would not cover salt water damage/corrosion.

Replaceable battery products (including rechargeable products) – weatherproof/waterproof is only guaranteed when the product is in perfect sealed condition. Product warranty is not valid when not installing the battery back to the product properly – if you didn’t screw the cover back on properly (gap between covers), weather seal is moved/damaged when replacing battery, recharging port is not covered/closed properly etc.
