One of the main reasons that a smartphone fails is by getting water damage. Once water seeps into the mobile device there’s a very high chance that it will short out the circuitry making it unusable. This is where Liquipel comes in. The company uses its WaterSafe nanocoating technology to safeguard your device from water damage.
Over at the MWC, Liquipel has just announced that they will be making Liquipel 2.0 available around the world by adding licenses to 8 new territories. This will expand their global presence and make it more accessible to people who want to use their product. The 9 new territories are Japan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Russia, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Namibia and South Africa.
Liquipel is one of those products that is amazing yet hasn’t caught on in a big way yet. It offers three levels of protection for your device. Level I protects your device from light water contact such as accidental coffee spills. Level II protects your device from quick water contact such as accidental drops to the sink or toilet. Level III protection is the highest level of protection that safeguards your device from heavy water contact such as a sudden drop to the pool or from heavy rain.
In the United States it would cost $60 to protect a Galaxy Nexus device from accidental spills or splashes. The process is that the customer will have to send their device to the company and they return it to you with the Liquipel technology already installed.
According to Danny McPhail, head of product development and co-founder of Liquipel, “We are thrilled to be able to bring the benefits of Liquipel 2.0 super-hydrophobic nanotechnology to the global market and to have our new licensees offer the latest advancements in super-hydrophobic nanotechnology. The release and application of 2.0 technology to global markets illustrates our commitment to researching, developing and marketing the best products available to consumers.”
