    I have a set of what look like identical front lights to those on my commuter/utility bike. Havent done anything to them and they still work after a couple of years of all weather riding.

    Theres a rubber o ring seal under the battery compartment lid .

    You could apply vaseline to the threads.

    Vaseline or lanoline, even more waterproof.

    I mean, if you need something water proof over water resistant then I'd suggest looking for diving torches :angel:

    Vaseline around the seals and cling film over the whole light (apart from the lens)

    Clingfilm works. Just change it when it gets tatty.
