No need to be absolutely gutted about losing your iPhone to water, as California-based company has a solution to permanently waterproof your iPhone, or any smartphone for that matter, forever.
Liquipel’s technology is here to save your iPhone from accidental water damages. The company has demonstrated their supreme chemical coating technology that serves as an invisible armor which permanently protects your cell phone from any form of liquid medium.
And there’s no need to dress your iPhone with a case, as Liquipel has its own coating technology that shields your devices for a price. Sounds too good to be true? To prove the point, Liquipel has put up several demonstration videos on their website.
Here is one of them — an iPhone 4S battling against the tide of water:
The site states that there are currently 11 different kinds of smartphones — Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS 4 and 4S; HTC Evo 4G, Shift 4G, MyTouch 4G and Thunderbolt; Samsung Charge; Motorola Droid X and X2 — that can be treated with this magical shield for $59.
According to Liquipel’s website:
It is not visible to the human eye, virtually undetectable and Liquipel will not compromise the look, feel, and performance of your electronics. Liquipel penetrates the entire device as a whole, including all of the vital components inside and out to provide optimal protection against accidental contact with liquids.
So what does this mean?
You can potentially turn your iPhone or any smartphone into an underwater camera. You can shower with your iPhone every day, finally. And probably get out of submarine and camp out underneath the sea for a day or two — okay, that’s too much, but you get the point.
However, the downside of this chemical coating is its price. While it is certainly not very expensive, but shelling out $59 can be a bit too much to ask for, especially if your smartphone is not entirely in mint condition.
Probably you can buy any of the waterproof iPhone cases available at Amazon, that is not only cheap but also gives a sturdy look and feel when you hold the smartphone in your hands.
Also, for $59, you won’t get a screenguard-like sheet to be applied on your iPhone. You have to send your device off to Liquipel and have them apply this coating on your phone. This can probably take a day or two.
We can’t confirm the veracity of Liquipel’s coating technology, but stealing from the first glance of the video, this product is probably the only game in town that can protect your smartphone, like, forever.
