Waterproof smartphones are all the rage right now, a trend which Sony brought to the mainstream with the release of its Xperia Z handset, and other big names followed suit, such as Samsung, with the release of the Galaxy S5. But the big question in everyone’s mind is: is it possible to add waterproofing credentials to your existing smartphone without busting your bank? Well, yes, it’s possible, and it will cost you only 30 bucks!
A new do-it-yourself nano spray, which comes from a manufacturer called Impervious, is all you need to add waterproofing credentials to your iPhone or Android device. The company also boasts, that apart from waterproofing, it will also make your device scratch resistant, and will give it an IPX7 rating, which means that it will survive in a depth of 1 meter of water (or 3 feet), for up to 30 minutes, which isn’t a bad deal at all.
At this point, there are two options which Impervious is currently offering. The first one, which is a simple neigh-on solution, is a $30 kit (shipped), which you can apply yourself on your iPhone or Android smartphone and will add basic water resistance to the device, protecting it from simple water spills or light rain. The second option, which will cost $10 more than the first one, is applied outside as well as inside of the device, and takes things a little further by adding complete waterproofing credentials.
Keep one thing in mind, the 1 meter (for up to 30 minutes) option is the expensive one of the two, so you have to spend 10 bucks more if you want to protect your device completely from any sort of every day liquid. And if you’re asking us, we’d go for the $40 option, after all, those extra 10 bucks means a load of protection in our books.
The Impervious kit is not just limited to smartphones, the company is also offering solutions for tablets as well, and the iPad and a range of other Android tablets are covered. The price varies between $35 and $40.
