NeverWet Spray Claims to Make Smartphones More Water Resistant


By Phi Tran Comment

Electronics and water make a sad mix, but it doesn’t have to be. Now, everything you own can be more water resistant with a coat of¬†NeverWet. The solution is a hydrophobic spray that imitates the Lotus Effect – a micro textured surface that encourages beading of water to maintain cleanliness of the white lotus leaves.¬†Evidently, NeverWet’s nanotech spray also works on smart phones. In the video below, the demonstration shows a NeverWet iPhone staying functional when submerged in water for about 30 minutes. However, I would not try this because I am a klutz and I would certainly do something wrong and kill an innocent phone.

NeverWet is a Rustoleum product for consumers that comes in two cans, a base coat and a finishing top coat. You can find it at Home Depot or other DIY stores.
