I've resealed potato chip bags and lettuce bags. I haven't tried a regular zip lock bag though. I'm pretty new to the 'sucky bag thing' as we call it in our house!!

You should be able to seal it. K4NT has buttons similar to the PRS700, in my other picture. The K2 had the whole alphabet, a joystick and worst of all, page turn & Home buttons on the side. Those were the ones that I made it impossible.

I bet you it would. If I could make mine slower, or more sensitive, the K2 may have been sealable.

Although the Sony 700 worked great, the short battery life meant I had to reseal it every day, so I only sealed it when I really needed to. The PPW's battery lasts so long, it's awesome that I can do it once, and it lasts for over a month!

I use the trendy digital
I use this one too and really like it. I bought it for my K3 (in summer 2011, I think). I read in the pool, sitting on a step or floating on a raft. I've also used it in the bathtub. Today I tried it with my KPW (just folded back the cover and put it in the bag). The screen worked fine. Easy to switch the page, make highlights, lookup words, even bought a book while in the pool.

I was in Target recently and was surprised to see that they were selling waterproof bags to use with digital gadgets in their electronics section.
