This company is called liquipel. They apparently use some sort of chamber and special vapour to waterproof your device. This is the device itself with no case on. They show you tests on their YouTube but I don't' buy it for some reason..

I think that if this was 100% reliable that Apple would already have their finger in that pie. It would be a huge marketing point.

You can check out their website here

Or check out their YouTube Channel here

For some reason the first link is a https:// link that doesn't play nice on my phone. Drop the s and all is well.

http://www.liquipel.com/

Hmmm, 'looks' good but I don't think I would risk it myself. But people were skeptical of the lifeproof case too when it first came out. ?

Well if you read the FAQ section, you'll find out the real deal with this. It's not meant to waterproof your phone so you can purposely get it wet. I knew it was too good to be true. It is a protective costing that basically stops corrosion if your phone might get wet.

Do not panic! Please follow the aftercare instructions(create link to instructions on page) such as drying the device as much as possible, powering down the unit (if it is not an emergency and you do not need to make a call), removing the battery and battery cover if possible and not restarting until it has dried. Please note not to charge your device for 24 hours until it has dried out.
Isn't that what people already do? Oh, and stuff it in a bag of rice.

Distilled water, this guy is probably just scamming people.

EDIT: Payment "successful" with a fake credit card number, fake address and other information, and that it's OK to ship my phone to them.



This site is a complete scam.
