NeverWet Spray Claims to Make Smartphones More Water Resistant

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.
