Reusable Very Easy IPod Drip-proof Bag




I like to listen to music or "Rakugo" Japanese traditional comic story telling in a hot tab.
I used to put my iPod into a plastic bag and secure the top with Sellotape or rubber band not to the iPod get wet, but it is kind of a bother and messy to take out the iPod out of the bag after I get out the bath.
So this idea came to me when I saw a small - almost the size of iPod - plastic zipper bag at a drugstore.
This is a extremely simple to make drip-proof iPod bag.

What you need is:

a small plastic zipper bag
a disposable stereo headphone (drip-proof one is perfect)
hot glue

Step 1: Put IPod Into the Bag

Put your iPod into the zipper bag HEAD FIRST.

Step 2: Insert Plug

Hold the bag firmly pressing the iPod to the inside of the bottom of bag.
Insert the plug of headphone into the jack punching a hole on the bag.

Step 3: Secure the Gap

Using a hotglue gun, fill the gap between the hole on the bag and the plug not the water leaks in.

Step 4: Conratulations!

This is it. Easy, isn't it?
Open the zip and pull out iPod carefully.
You can use it repeatedly until the bag will be torn.

Never ever drop it in the hot tab.
It's all just a drip-proof.

    This is a great and simple idea. One thing I would do is double bag it. I learned from camping, that double bagging saves your sensitive equipment.

    Ah drip not waterproof. Was wondering how you would seal the jack.

    i would use silicone epoxy. it is more flexable so its less likely to spring a leak. pretty sweet idea! i do the same thing with my psp and phone but dont have headphones attached.

    Yes, silicon epoxy will be perfect, but when you have to change the bag -- in the case of the bag has a hole or something -- hot glue is easier to remove. May be if you get a heavy duty bag that lasts much longer, epoxy is the better choice. Thank you!

    Thank you for you advice. If you could find a heavier bag, it's much better. In fact, the cheap bags are tend to torn easily, that's the problem.
