    It was discussed on here before, i believe. It just takes away the corrosion. But yes, i think you shouldn't go around dunking it but rather have it just in case. I think it works. Pretty cool.

    It is a scam. A member on here paid them with fake details and the payment was "successful" and they gave him the all clear to send his iPhone away to them. They also are using distilled water in their vids. Fake

    How is using distilled water any safer that regular water?

    How could you possibly waterproof phone with all the holes that go to the guts?

    because it will not make the components corrode as it is pure water. I believe a member here made a video on it. I hope the chime in

    Ok, maybe diminish corrosion in humid climates and even possibly seal the joints between steel and glass, but consider the microphone jacks - the speakers /w tiny holes in the mesh and the huge charging / multifunction port.
    This would stop up the air needed to transmit vibrations to the microphones.
    I'm pretty sure (conjecture) Apple used stainless type steel to minimize corrosion and there is NO WAY that the phone can be waterproofed without turning it into a brick. AND they want 59 hard earned bucks AND send my phone to them (for how long?)
    Spoof people. You can buy a real waterproof case for less money - that is actually waterproof.
    Their words on their site "Waterproof"
    Again IMHO: NoWay

    If it sounds too good to be true. It usually is. If this was possible Apple would have done it ages ago .

    It costs around $60 USD. You cannot apply it yourself, you have to send it to Liquipel and it will take 1 - 2 days.

    It looks great. They also say that this protection method might soon be applied to phones during manufacturing for extra protection.

    Oops! I rarely ever check the homepage since the forum is what's bookmarked for me. Sorry about that.

    Like all the contests you win, you 'fixed' it Jack. Hahaha joking of course! But the web site does work now and I have to agree with you that I'm not firmly convinced yet either.
