Aquapac for the PRS 700

Today I received my Aquapac small Whanganui. At first I thought it was to small for my reader, since I had a hard time trying to get the reader in the pack.
The pack kinda sucked itself to the reader and I had no chance to shuff it down in the bag.

So I called Aquapac and asked them, what to do. They gave me a great little hint, what to do with a new Aquapac. It is indeed so, that the pack is very sticky in the inside when it it new.

So you just have to wrap a sheet of paper around the reader and put it with the help of the paper into the Aquapac. It's a piece of cake than. The reader goes extremly easy into the pack. Than remove the paper and close the pack.

Works great, but you still will have a hard time in the beginning to get the reader back out of the pack. Guess after a few times, it will work out just fine.

The Aquapac itself is a very nice device. Looks and feels well build and safe. I wanted one for reading at the beach or in the bathtup. I guess I will not proof, if it is realy waterproofed though

I shot some pics so that you can see what I mean:

I was just talking about how I wanted one too ( jacuzzi too...)

Is the plastic stiff? Is the screen as responsive to touch with the pac on?

It works just fine through the pac. No problems to use the buttons under the screen or the touchscreen function or flipping pages with the finger.

The plastic is not stiff, eventhough it is pretty thik material. It is only a little hard to switch the reader on, when it is in the pack or to switch on the light. It is possible, but it will take a little afford. So it's easier to switch it on befor you close the pack.

I think you've got to take the dive so to say and submerge the 700 to see what happens. Inquiring minds want to know

It would be good for those rainy days, I like to just throw my umbrella in my bag when I hop on the train but if I have my reader then I have to hold it and have it drip on my shoes, with one of those I wouldn't have to worry about the aqua-damage

Maybe it would be also a good solution for the dust spot problem some have. I still cannot find one under my display.

I have bought other brands of aqua pacs for electronics before and with the ones I have purchased the aqua pac manufacturers guarantee covers any damaged electronics. I would double check your coverage before trying anything to scuba like.

I recently purchased a waterproof case from The Waterproof Store (a division of ROC Gear, Inc.) - Small Multi-Purpose #DPC-69 $12.95 to use on my vacation to a beach resort. I wanted to protect my reader from water, sand, etc. It worked great - fits great, doesn't affect visibility and didn't affect the touchscreen for page turning. I was really satisfied with it. Fyi, the case shipped with UPS within 1 business day with a tracking number and I received it in 3 business days for a $5.99 s/h fee. Customer Service was also really responsive in helping me select the right case for the Sony.

Just another alternative for anyone interested.

Many thanks

When I want to soak I vacuum seal my reader. If it got even a tiny pinhole too small for a water droplet it would break the vacuum seal and would be able to tell by the cover becoming loose or movable. And.... I tested it by fully immersing it. Passed! Dry as a bone!
