  • Make Your iPhone Waterproof With Liquipel Coating


    A company named Liquipel is claiming that it can make our smartphone water resistant by bonding it inside and out with a “nano” coating which repels water. It sounds too good to be true but it seems like this company is the real deal. While not meant for deep sea diving, it’s the perfect solution for those who are clumsy or prone to partying too hard.

    Some of you are probably already sold on the idea and are probably wondering how to get your iPhone coated. For now, you’ll have to send your device off to Liquipel for a few days for them to coat it. The good news here is that the company is seeking to work directly with manufacturers to integrate their coating before you buy a phone in which case, you’d buy a water resistant phone automatically. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple licensing or acquiring this technology and implementing it as soon as possible though. I am curious to see how this would pan out though for the general public interested in signing a contract with a carrier for their iPhone. Buying a waterproof iPhone from AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon sounds like it could be a very successful idea.

    Although the coating won’t help those of you who drop your iPhones onto hard surfaces, it’ll definitely prevent spills and splashes from causing harm to your device. As of right now, the Liquipel coating will set you back $59 and a 1-2 day turnaround for the coating to be applied. For those of you who don’t own an iPhone and are also interested in getting your device coated, it might be good to know that the iPhone isn’t the only smartphone supported.

    Last but not least, for those of you who are skeptical about the effectiveness of the coating, check out the video below:



    If you still aren’t a believer, you can check out a whole slew of videos on Liquipel’s YouTube channel.

    Are any of you going to be sending in your iPhone to get coated? Share any thoughts and opinions below!

      You should not own an iphone. Or at least stop putting in in your shirt pocket.

      Haha, very unfortunate. Your friend might consider putting his next iPhone away before doing any dishes.

      I have heard of people whose iPhones (or phones) broke after a long run in the rain (with the phone in some pocket of course), but I can never image how it could get that wet under those circumstances.
