Liquipel Claims New Formula Better at Protecting Gadgets

Liquipel this week announced version 2.0 of its water-proofing solution. Liquipel first debuted at CES 2012, and it is back this year with a new formula that it says is 100 times more effective than the original formula. Liquipel is based on nanotechnology and is applied to devices using a controlled mist (phones need to be sent to Liquipel's facility in order for it to be applied). The material gets inside the device, covers the internal components, and protects them from the problems caused by contact with water and other liquids. Liquipel says the new formula equates to an IPX7 rating, meaning it can withstand submersion in water for up to 30 minutes. The company is so confident in its new formula that is is offering a warranty for customers whose Liquipel-protected devices suffer liquid damage. Pricing for Liquipel starts at $59.

100 times more effective?

So, if the new formula is 100 times more effective and protects for 30 minutes, the old formula protected for 30 second?

Everybody likes to say this new product is ONE HUNDRED TIMES BETTER!!! Very, very doubtful. I would't get anything like this "applied" to my phone until they work their formula out and finalize it.

Very useful

Great being able to coat the internal parts to such a degree. I have used many phones in high moisture environments and sooner or later they get effected.

(phones need to be sent to Liquipel's facility in order for it to be applied).>>How long until the phone comes back usually?
