I would be very surprised if there’s enough liquid in that to drown an ant never mind the phone.

Good grief do NOT get a case with liquid in it. It’s not water. It’s some noxious solution. My daughter insisted on one for her iPhone 7 Plus, glittery stars not ducks. Damn thing cracked and leaked in a cup holder in my truck. Needed hazmat gear to clean it up. I exaggerate, but it really smelled like toxic crap.

I don’t think anything with toxic liquid would be allowed in the US, we do have regulatory agencies that check this.

Smelled like it though. And occasionally dodgy stuff gets through, like the situation has been with some blood pressure medication manufactured having a carcinogen contaminant.

We also have regulatory agencies to inspect restaurants. Have you ever seen Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen nightmares?

That’s all besides the point anyway. Even if this stuff is safe enough to use as eye drops, the cases do break and the liquid does leak out (Amazon reviews bear this out though the merchants know how to bury those reviews. And it’s at best unpleasant to clean up and at worst it irritates the eyes and nose as well.

Why not!? They allow all that poison fragrance crap in EVERYTHING! Even my food packaging REEKS of that nasty, noxious laundry fragrance chemical crap they are using these day!
