In my experience, NOTHING is waterproof. Water resistant to varying degrees, yes. However, in order to attach an external power supply, you have to remove the (waterproof) door and install something aftermarket, which renders the camera NOT water-resistant.

I'm looking at an aftermarket aluminum case for the camera that has an external power supply cable built into a "door" that screws into place with an O ring, that supposedly retains the waterproof rating of the camera. Of course, since it's aftermarket, should it fail, the damage to the camera would not be covered. Why GoPro doesn't come up with an accessory for this purpose is beyond me.
