At last year's CES, Liquipel introduced the world to a hugely innovative solution to protect our phones and tablets from water, among many others. Their product, Liquipel 1.0, was a treatment process in which the phone would be coated with chemicals that bond to the device and repel water. The remarkable part was they were trying to develop a scratch resistant coating when they stumbled upon this technology. Since that time, the company has moved from its home in southern California to South East Asia in the Fall of 2012. However, at this year's CES Liquipel has returned and they have come back with an even better and more efficient product to offer their customers.
Liquipel 2.0 is the upgraded solution, which can protect your device longer and more effectively. For example, a product coated with the solution will keep your phone safe in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. At their display in Las Vegas they also had a demonstration which allowed people to drop an iPhone 5 coated with Liquipel into a cylinder with 2 feet of water. According to the company, their extensive testing has shown the new treatment to be up to 100 times more effective than the 1.0 version, all while maintaining its functionality and RF sensitivity.
Co-founder and head of product development, Danny McPhail stated, “Liquipel version 2.0 is a huge advancement for super-hydrophobic nanotechnology. 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 will be upgrading all its treatments to version 2.0 through a web based service, but they state partners and customers outside the U.S. may have to wait a short period before they can get the upgraded treatment. In addition, Liquipel is also looking to offer the treatment to vendors or shops. They are offering a 4ft X 4ft “Liquipod” for company's that would like to offer the treatment. There is one good question that has been circulating around though, would coating your phone in the nearly invisible solution void any warranties? Company representatives commented they have not yet had any warranty problems. However, they are offering their own device warranties. There is a good chance many new devices will soon begin to come produced with the treatment already applied.
