Based on the proliferation of Liquipel ads appearing in the google ads of this forum (yes I know google ads are targeted), I decided that this information could help XDA'ers save themselves from being conned. Australian Choice just announced their 2012 Shonky Awards and Liquipel came in as number 3. As a result, "Based on CHOICE testing that showed the manufacturer’s claims are false, NSW Fair Trading has issued a substantiation notice under the Australian Consumer Law that requires Liquipel to justify the advertised claims."

The Choice article can be seen here.

Interesting... considering Popular Science gave them an award for 2012 for awesomeness.

Not that strange really.
One has no reason to be impartial, the other's reputation relies on it. I know who I'll believe.

The Choice testing is just as "shonky". They should have consulted with a university first. As for the company and their product. Often times, management, promotion and PR are at odds with the science department.

Liquipel


Liquipel is the shiznit. I got Liquipel on my phone back in June and itís saved it from getting destroyed at least three times. I even dropped it in a bubbling jacuzzi and it survived. Iíve been a believer ever since. You canít tell anything has been done to it at all which is kinda a trip, but it comes back all clean in a nice metal container with a microfiber pouch. All in all Iíd say its worth the $59. You no longer have to worry about losing a phone over a spilled drink or a little rain. Makes you feel special

Is there anyone else having positive results with liquipel? Because I am seriously considering sending my phone off to have it done.
