    Is this legit? I've been searching around at the reviews on youtube but they are only from the company themselves, none from actual customers. I'm interested in getting it done, but there is so much controversy over its usability.:(

    Even liquipel itself warns that once a device has gone through its process, is STILL not guaranteed to be water proof or even water resistant. Most of the time it does a good job, but it's not perfect. And if your phone dies after the liquipel process is done, liquipel doesn't warrant or insure the phone. You're still on your own.

    Other than this, the process is legit. Its some kind of chemical vapor process that deposits a coating on device internals. The Droid Bionic is supposed to have a similar coating but direct from Motorola. If done right, what they do MAY reduce the chance of your phone suffering damage through water immersion.

    Just be aware that since apple isn't doing the process, this definitely voids the warranty.

    So we could say that it relates to Motorola's "Spill Resistant" coating? Liability was also an issue for me. I'm very care with my iPhone, I use an Otterbox Defender. What if an employee of Liquipel drops the device? no one is liable?

    If their employee drops it they prob will say you gave it to them like that.

    Thats what I'm reading, or interpreting when I read their policies. Has anyone tried this let? I've been searching everywhere on the web and no one seems to have reviewed Liquipel. Maybe I'll just wait, seeing that the product is still very new, and its probably not in mainstream knowledge yet.

    http://www.neverwet.com/ Just wait a few months for them to release their aerosol cans, can do it yourself for probably under $50.

    I will be doing almost every electronic I own, not to mention shoes, and shirts and hats and sunglasses. That **** makes rain x look like playskool!

    this wouldn't be recommended...it doesn't seem to be designed for portable electronics, and getting it to work would require opening the device yourself. Spraying it on the outside isn't enough...the companies that do this waterproofing do so in a vacuum with the device opened professionally, and components have to be removed so that everything can get coated on all sides by the spray.It would be very difficult if not impossible to do at home
