The NOCQUA battery was designed to take a beating and keep you powered regardless of what you throw at it (or it at!). The internal cells and circuitry are cased in a thick layer of silicone to make it safe against bumps, drops, and crashes while also keeping water out. The connection features a thumbscrew to prevent accidental unplugging and to keep pressure on the rubber o-ring (gasket) between the male and female connections. This allows for the ports to be submerged without any water leaking in. All in all, treat your NOCQUA battery just as any other piece of gear but when it comes down to it, there’s no need to be scared to put it through the paces.
