So Apple’s stance on water damage vs. warranties has become a little grey as of late, but that doesn’t mean you should be any less cautious about getting your iPhone or iPod wet. It’s still a sensitive piece of electronics that just doesn’t play well with H20. And water’s not the only hazard. I don’t know how many times I’ve troubleshooted an iPhone with a malfunctioning headphone port that was resolved by just fishing out a piece of pocket lint trapped in there.

So while they’re maybe a bit excessive, these iCorkz look like a sure fire way to keep moisture and other crud out of your iDevice. Made from premium grade high-polymer silicone and organic polyurethane the iCorkz come in two versions for protecting the dock connector and headphone port, and are “precision uni-die molded for a perfect fit with no unsightly mold lines.” At $9.95 + $4 shipping they’re not exactly cheap, but if you’re really worried about those moisture sensors voiding your warranty, I guess you can look at it as a little extra bit of insurance.
