MIJI Rainproof Power Supplies: Rainproof power supplies are mainly used in outdoor environments where there is rain or moisture, ensuring the normal operation of the power supply. However, they cannot be submerged in water for extended periods.

MIJI Waterproof Power Supplies: Waterproof power supplies have higher waterproof performance and can withstand short-term immersion in water without damage. They are mainly used in underwater equipment or devices that require frequent washing.

Differences Between Rainproof and Waterproof Power Supplies:

  1. Waterproof Performance: Rainproof power supplies can only withstand rainwater or light moisture, while waterproof power supplies can handle short-term immersion in water.
  2. Price: Waterproof power supplies have higher waterproof performance, so they are correspondingly more expensive.
  3. Application Scenarios: Rainproof power supplies are mainly used in outdoor environments with rain or moisture, while waterproof power supplies are primarily used in underwater equipment or devices that require frequent washing.

Applications of Rainproof and Waterproof Power Supplies: Based on their characteristics and differences, rainproof and waterproof power supplies have different application scenarios:

  1. Rainproof Power Supplies: Suitable for outdoor events such as concerts, outdoor billboards, outdoor lighting, security monitoring, primarily for short-term rain protection.
  2. Waterproof Power Supplies: Suitable for underwater equipment such as underwater lighting, underwater speakers, underwater sockets, and can also be used for devices that require frequent washing, such as industrial washing machines and medical equipment.

Conclusion: Although rainproof power supplies and waterproof power supplies may seem similar, they have significant differences. Choosing the right power supply equipment can ensure the normal operation of devices and effectively extend their lifespan, providing a better user experience.
