All Kyocera devices are Japan Made. Our phones come with a Standard 2-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty.

Kyocera phones aren’t just built tough, they’re engineered tough to meet IP6X, IPX5 and IPX8 for dust, water spray and immersion in water*, up to 30 minutes at a depth of 6.5 feet.

Kyocera ultra-rugged devices can also be washed and disinfected using mild dish cleaner, alcohol (70% solution) or cleaning wipes. Please follow the instructions found here. Note: If your phone still retains some moisture, audio quality and speaker performance may be affected. Dry your phone completely before using it again.

Water Immersion*IEC 60529 Ed, 2.2 b:2013 + cor.1:2013 + cor.2.2015IPX8: Unit immersed at 6.5 feet (2 meters) depth for 30 minutes
Water SprayIEC 60529 Ed, 2.2 b:2013 + cor.1:2013 + cor.2.2015IPX5: Operating unit sprayed for 3 minutes with a 3.3 gallon (12.5L) per minute, 8.2 ft (2.5 meters) from unit
DustIEC 60529 Ed, 2.2 b:2013 + cor.1:2013 + cor.2.2015IP6X: Unit exposed to heavy dust for 8 hours

The information found on this page describes our standard testing and procedures. Please check each device for specifications and ratings as these may differ.

*Phone should be dried as quickly as possible when wet. To ensure that phone is waterproof, make sure all of the port covers are properly sealed, including the charger/data port, audio jack and card slot covers, with no foreign objects obstructing the seals.

What is an IP Code?

IP codes are shorthand for International Protection Marking IEC Standard 60529. Quite often you will hear IP referred to as Ingress Protection. It is created by the International Electrotechnical Commission (the IEC). The IEC is an international body made up of members from 60 countries and helps set and maintain standards that are used globally. The standard itself provides classification and rating of the degree of protection provided against intrusion, dust, water and accidental contact by electrical enclosures and mechanical casings. Its aim is to provide more detailed definitions on the level of protection a piece of equipment has, rather than relying on terms such as ‘waterproof’ or ‘splash proof’.

How are IP Codes Written?

IP Codes should always be expressed in the following way, for example: IP68

A breakdown of the code is as follows:

IP – the IP indication is mandatory; this states that the following digits are part of an IP code.

6 – The first digit indicates solid particle protection; there are a range of numbers that can be used here.

8 – The second digit indicates liquid ingress protection; again, there are a range of figures that can be
used here.

Example: Looking at the example above with a code of IP68 we can ascertain that it is both dust tight and
suitable for complete immersion.

What Do the Different Numbers Mean?

First Digit- Solids
LEVELObject size protected againstEffective against
0Not protectedNo protection against contact and ingress of objects.
1>50mmAny large surface of the body, such as the back of the hand, but no protection against deliberate
contact with a body part.
2>12.5mmFingers or similar objects.
3>2.5mmTools, thick wires, etc.
4>1mmMost wires, screws, etc.
5Dust ProtectedIngress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to
interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment; complete protection against contact.
6Dust TightNo ingress of dust; complete protection against contact.
Second Digit- Liquids

Protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against harmful ingress of water.

LEVELObject size protected againstEffective against
0Not protected-
1Dripping waterDripping water (vertically falling drops) shall have no harmful effect.
2Dripping water when tilted up to 15°Vertically dripping water shall have no harmful effect when the
enclosure is tilted at an angle up to 15° from its normal position.
3Spraying waterWater falling as a spray at any angle up to 60° from the vertical shall have no harmful
4Splashing waterWater splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect.
5Water jetsWater projected by a nozzle (6.3mm) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful
6Powerful water jetsWater projected in powerful jets (12.5mm nozzle) against the enclosure from any
direction shall have no harmful effects.
7Immersion up to 1mIngress of water in harmful quantity shall not be possible when the enclosure is
immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure and time  (up to 1 m of submersion).
8Immersion beyond 1mThe equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions which
shall be specified by the manufacturer. Normally, this will mean that the  equipment is hermetically
sealed. However, with certain types of equipment, it can mean that water can enter but only in such a manner
that it produces no harmful effects.
