Because some people simply can’t afford to be separated from their smartphones, it’s imperative the cherished devices be screened from the elements. So here comes Liquipel, an awful mash of the words ‘liquid’ and ‘repel’ that’s also the name of a fascinating company over in California. a substance that keeps the smartphone dry in the wettest conditions. How does it work?
That’s the tricky part. See, Liquipel are a company who’ve devised a method to ‘coat’ smartphones with a special substance that protects them from moisture. Keep in mind that by ‘coat’ is mean every little square surface of the phone. The problem is, you have tos end them the device and pay $59 for the service.
There’s a catch too. Liquipel guarantees that their method can protect your phone, but it’s not effective enough to make it 100% water proof and totally protected enough for immersion. So no, better scratch that dream of scuba diving with your iPhone.
