An IP44 rating verifies that the product has been tested and proven to have effective protection against solid objects larger than 1 mm, such as tools and small wires, as well as against splash water from any angle. In other words, your Dometic CFX3 compressor cool box and the PLB 40 portable power pack are splash-proof and therefore fit for the rigours of outdoor use.
