Many an expensive gadget has been cut down in its prime by an accidental soaking. Liquipel, based in Santa Ana, California, can prevent such accidents by coating your device with a thin, invisible, water-repellent coating.
For $59, you can mail your device to the company, and Liquipel will put it in a vacuum chamber and deposit an extremely thin layer of its proprietary material onto the device. The coating even gets inside the headphone socket, but it is electrically conductive enough to allow the device to function normally. A treated gadget can last about half an hour in a meter of water.
