Liquipel: Protect Your Device From Water

Liquipel Liquipel is a nano technology that is applied to devices to act as a liquid repellant. It treats both the inside and outside of the device. This is done without having to take the device apart. Liquipel is applied at the shop and it bonds at a molecular level. The nano coating is 1,000x thinner than a human hair. Since the application is done without having to disassemble the device the warranty is not effected.

The Liquipel newest product is Liquipel 2.0 which was developed to help repeal salt water. Salt water even in the air can corrode a device over time. Many people who live near the ocean in places like Florida were asking for something that would help repeal salt water and Liquipel came up with Liquipel 2.0.

At this time all the work has to be done in shop, so you have to send the device in. They are working on a 4x4x4 unit that can go into retail locations, so the user doesn’t have to ship the device out. It is $59.95 to treat a phone and $89.95 for a tablet. If it fits into the machine they can treat it.

Waterproof Your Gear With Liquipel

Liquipel LogoNanotech waterproof coatings have been quite the fashion at CES this year but Liquipel‘s offering is a little bit different. Todd and Steve learn more from Kevin Bacon of Liquipel.

Liquipel have developed a nanotechnology-based liquid-repelling coating for electronic devices that makes the device waterproof for short periods of immersion. This sounds pretty much like ever other waterproofing technology on the market…except Liquipel can waterproof gadgets you already own. Woah!

For only $59, you can send Liquipel a phone or mp3 player and they will waterproof it for you. At the moment there’s a restricted list of devices that Liquipel will coat but the list includes some Apple, Motorola, Samsung and HTC devices. The list of approved devices will expand over time and if you have a particular need, you can get in touch with them.

Watch the video if you want to see an Apple iPhone get dunked in water!
