Sealed micro USB connectors are waterproof

Sealed micro USB connectors from JST provide a space saving, low profile interface connection for cellular phone and mobile equipment conforming to the Micro-USB standard with a IPX7 sealing rating, making them watertight for 30minutes to a depth of 1.0m).

Waterproof performance is via a gasket and cured resin. The low profile height of only 3.4mm is achieved by having the rubber seal directly around the shell. The rugged construction includes a laser welded joint around the shell that provides strength against wrenching.

The SMT connectors are RoHS compliant. Rated at 30V AC/DC and available in five circuits, the signal contacts are rated at 1A AC/DC. When applying power, the signal lines are rated 0.5A AC/DC and the power contacts are rated at 1.8A AC/DC. Operating temperature is -30 to +85 degree C, including temperature rise when applying an electrical current. The PCB mounted contacts are made of copper alloy, nickel under plating and gold plating. The housings are UL94V-0, thermoplastic resin. The shell is stainless steel, nickel base, tin plated and the shell cover is cooper alloy, nickel base, tin plated.
