This iPhone 5 Protected by Liquipel 2.0 Nano Coating Goes Swimming [VIDEO]


Last year Liquipel debuted their nano coating, which required customers to send in their devices to be sprayed down entirely, making them fully waterproof enough to be submerged in water.

This year at CES 2013, the company has announced Liquipel 2.0, their next generation nanotechnology, that the company claims is 100 times better than its predecessor:

“Liquipel version 2.0 is a huge advancement for super-hydrophobic nanotechnology,” said Danny McPhail, Liquipel’s Head of Product Development and Co-Founder. He further stated, “The release of 2.0 represents our ongoing R&D commitment to advancing our technology and products. Innovation is the key to our success. Our customers have reconfirmed that the science behind 2.0 places us at the forefront of the industry.”

Liquipel 2.0 is a coating the company claims is microscopic and “forever lasting”, untraceable, and does not affect the integrity of your device. Engadget visited the Liquipel 2.0 booth for a demo of the latest technology which was protecting the following iPhone 5 as it was being dunked into a tank of water.

Liquipel protection ranges from $59-$89, depending on the extras that come with the application and your choice of priority application time.

What do you think? Would you trust your iPhone or iPad to Liquipel and go swimming with it?
