How many times have you dropped your phone in water or spilled liquid on it? Those “oh sh!#” moments could be gone forever with Liquipel.
Liquipel is a waterproof coating applied to your device using nano technology. The coating is not visible to the human eye and virtually untraceable. It keeps the same look and feel of your device without compromising the performance. Penetrating your entire device, Liquipel coats all vital components, inside and out, providing you with optimal protection against contact with liquid.
My first thought was does it really work? Yes! We had the privilege of getting hands on with this amazing product at CES 2012. Liquipel was by far one of the most innovative products showcased this year, and even I, the most skeptical of our team, was blown away by how well it worked. We were shown a treated iPhone that still worked after being completely submerged in water. In order to show us even further how well Liquipel did its job, we were shown a treated tissue paper versus an untreated one. The treated one actually repelled the water, with the water simply beading up on it and rolling off, while the untreated version soaked the water up and became a soggy mess.
Currently, Liquipel is only available to select devices. The approved list includes:
- iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S
- HTC Evo 4G
- HTC Evo Shift 4G
- HTC MyTouch 4G
- HTC Thunderbolt
- Motorola Droid X/X2
- Samsung Charge
Although there is only a limited amount of devices currently able to be treated, Liquipel states that they are diligently working to expand the list of approved devices, so keep checking back with them.
Currently, Liquipel is only available in the U.S., and they are based in Santa Ana, California. If you reside locally, you may bring in your product to their physical location to be treated. If not, you must send in your device to be treated. Treatment times vary between 1-3 days of receiving your device to as little as 2 hours of receiving your device. Return shipping prices vary as well.
Liquipel has several treatment options on their website, from $59.00-$79.00. They are also currently offering free return ground shipping during their grand opening event.

Overall, Liquipel seems to be a product that will truly change the way our electronic devices are used, and we are excited to see their approved product list grow in the future. This is definitely one product everyone will want to be have access to.
