What is IPX-8 Standard

What is water resistant according to IPX-8 standard?
Many flashlights declare IPX-8 waterproof.
What does that mean?

Knivesandtools.fr response:
IPX is a water resistance standard. IPX-8 stands for: can be kept under water according to the manufacturer’s specifications. This is why the IPX-8 statement shall be accompanied by an indication of the depth and duration. However, many manufacturers forget to mention it.
Usually this means something like ‘water resistant up to 2 meters depth for 30 minutes’. Anyway, this is the explanation that gives Fenix.
But this does not mean that the flashlights that are called ‘water resistant to IPX-8 standard’ are made to be used underwater.
They are waterproof, for if they accidentally fall into the water and are being dry immediately. These measurements are made with the new flashlights and a part that is loose, slightly damaged or a little wear can affect water resistance quickly.
If you want a waterproof lamp that can be really used underwater, buy a dive light. If you want a lamp that must withstand water, but should be used above the water, while a lamp that is waterproof to IPX-8 standard is an excellent choice.
