So I’ve spent the last few months using several liquid screen protectors and here’s the bottom line: Liquid screen protectors are not a complete replacement for traditional screen protectors. With all that being said, liquid screen protectors are pretty cool. I’ve come to this conclusion after using three different brands of liquid screen protectors on a variety of devices. The questions I personally had about liquid screen protectors and will answer in this video include: 00:01:36 - What are liquid screen protectors exactly? 00:02:58 - Can you really re-add the oleophobic coating back to your device? 00:06:12 - Does it add to the scratch resistance of the device? 00:08:05 - Will it fill in cracks? 00:09:26 - Does it really make the screen tougher? 00:11:07 - Can you use it with other screen protectors? 00:11:30 - How well does it work with a waterproof case? And after I go through all that, I’ll tell you whether or not I would actually recommend using a liquid screen protector (00:11:44). Like what I do? Help me out by getting your stuff through my Amazon links! Doesn't have to be what I link to, you just need to use my link! See how much liquid screen protectors are on Amazon! Amazon US: https://mreh.ca/2KXW9jl Amazon CA: https://mreh.ca/2J1oOlT Amazon UK: https://mreh.ca/2KX2C10 Amazon DE: https://mreh.ca/2KWAGY0 **What are liquid screen protectors exactly? How do they work?** Liquid screen protectors start off as liquid glass. The base compound that’s used in every liquid screen protector that I’ve come across is Silicone Dioxide. Every product I used had the liquid screen protector in a wipe form and takes a couple of days to dry completely. **Can you really re-add the oleophobic coating back to your device?** I stripped 1/2 my iPhone X with a Magic Eraser and added a liquid screen protector to that stripped side. I performed a water droplet test on both sides of the iPhone and the side with the stock coating out performed the liquid screen protector side. The only thing I noticed throughout this process is that the screens on my older devices definitely felt smoother. **Does it add to the scratch resistance of the device?** It does but unlike regular screen protectors, you can't take it off after it gets damaged. The damage is going to look permanent which isn't great. **Will it fill in cracks or scratches?** I was really hoping that it would. It doesn’t. I applied a liquid screen protector to a cracked screen protector to see if it would fill in the cracks and it didn't. For scratches, I wiped my beat up Apple Watch Series 3 with a liquid screen protector and the giant gash across the front of the device didn’t look any better. Or worse. **Does it really make the screen tougher?** In short, yes it does. I took three identical screen protectors and applied a liquid screen protector to one of them. I used the first two screen protectors to determine what height they would break by dropping a 200g ball on them. It was between 9-10 inches. The screen protector with the liquid screen protector applied broke at 16 inches! **Can you use it with a screen protector on top?** Yes you can! Since it’s just glass on top of your smartphone screen, there’s no reason why you can’t add another layer of glass on your screen. Or plastic, depending on what type of protection your are looking for. **Can you use it with a waterproof case?** This is the only type of screen protector that would work well in any waterproof case since it doesn’t add any thickness to the device. From my perspective, it’s going to work with any waterproof case out there. **So would I actually recommend using a liquid screen protector?** In short? Not by itself on a smartphone. I think it's a good accessory if you're REALLY paranoid about your screen breaking and you use it with other accessories. Our smartphones go through a lot of wear and tear so the tiny bit of protection the product will offer won't be enough. However, I'm not as against using liquid screen protectors on tablets. The screen on my iPad feels like new and since I don't take my iPad much, having the tiny bit of extra protection isn't a bad thing. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to stay in the loop!

Flying saucers, hyper-drive technology, instant orgasm pills; there are many technologies which conspiracy theorists claim exist behind a shroud of government or corporate secrecy, except the last one, that's something I just want to exist. Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com Humans have enjoyed running over squirrels and doing drive by's in autonomous motor vehicles for more than a Century now, and we've had electricity for even longer, but it's only in the last few years we've seen these two things come together in a commercially viable manner, with the release of vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf and Elon Musk's Tesla Model S. The dangers of smoking have been known by cigarette companies for decades now, but at first, this information was withheld from the public or downplayed in seriousness in order to protect their profits. Strange Mysteries knows its audience, and we're well aware that a good portion of the folks watching us are baked like a potato right now, so let's take that doobie out of your mouth and examine it, to find out why people might want to prevent the use of cannabis and hemp based products so fiercely. TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, and not totally excellent nipple stimulator, as I personally hoped. In the days before mobile phones and digital cameras made sweet sweet love to form the smartphone, humans were forced to use film cameras to take their selfies and wiener shots, and these had to be processed down at the chemist, the photo store or your creepy uncle's darkroom. As the world seeks to free itself from the bondage of fossil fuel reliance, many different energy sources have been explored, have failed, and have been consigned to the realms of science fiction history. The most controversial entry on this list is undoubtedly this one; the possible suppression of free energy technology developed by Nikola Tesla over a hundred years ago.

So the iPhone 8 and X now support 7.5 W Qi-charging. Which is 2.5 W’s higher than before. Which is awesome right? From all the tests that I did, 7.5W Qi-charging isn’t great. Why? Because the charge times for the 7.5W charger sits here when compared against all the other ways to charge your iPhone. In the next few minutes, I’ll show you what I discovered when I compared charge rates against: - A 5W Spigen Qi-Charger - A regular 5W Apple iPhone Charger - A 29W MacBook Charger - A 87W MacBook Pro Charger - and a slew of other fast chargers All the details below! The Anker 7.5W Qi-Charger is the best one I've used to date. Get now on Amazon! Get the Anker PowerWave 7.5W on Amazon! Amazon US: https://mreh.ca/2uYk7HQ Amazon CA: https://mreh.ca/2uSf3Vl Amazon UK: https://mreh.ca/2H4tH0p Amazon DE: https://mreh.ca/2GYattx With 7.5 W charging, Apple turned on that feature in iOS 11.2. When the iPhone X and 8 were announced, they were only capable of being charged using 5W which is the bare minimum is quite slow. Now we’ve known about the 7.5 W charging since launch as well so if you went and bought a Qi-charger that isn’t 7.5 W capable, well, that just sucks. So how much better is the 7.5 W charging over the normal 5 W charger? To answer this question, I ran several discharge cycles between my favourite 5W Qi-charger, the Spigen F300W and the a 7.5W Anker PowerWave charger. There’s a design feature with these two products that make it stand out over the others. I’ll elaborate after I talk about the charge rate differences. It took almost 15000 seconds for the Spigen Qi-charger to bring my iPhone X from 10% to 100%. It took this Anker 7.5 W only 10500 seconds. These numbers makes sense to me as the 7.5 W is 150% of 5W. But let that sink in, it took over 4 hours for the Spigen charger to bring my iPhone X to 100% and almost 3 hours for the Anker charger. The only time in my day to day life where I can leave my iPhone in one location for 3-4 hours at a time is when I sleep. For me, it’s almost impossible for me to get a decent charge during the day and I work mostly from home. So how does 7.5 W charger compare against the standard charger that comes with the iPhone? Well, from my tests, the was almost no difference. There was a 6 min difference between my tests which seems insignificant when you consider that it still takes 3 hours to charge for both chargers. So let that sink in, the $70 dollar, 7.5W charger will charge at the same rate as the charger that comes with the device. On top of this annoyance is the fact that Qi-wireless charging isn’t as wireless as we all think as your device still needs to be physically touching the charger. So how does the 7.5 W Qi-charging compare against the fastest way to charge your iPhone which is to use a laptop charger. With the 29W charger, it only takes 2 hours to charge the iPhone X from 10% which is a full hour shorter than the 7.5 W charger. If you’re looking for a better way to charge your iPhone, consider taking the $70 dollars you’d spend on the Qi-charger and buy yourself a 29W MacBook charger. The fast charging feature from 0-50 is handy. Going back to my lunch example, in 30 minutes, I can get approx. 50% charged on my device. So that would bring me close to 60% which would last me past supper for the day. You’ll need to get a USB-3 to Lightning cable as well and if you’re wondering, the charge time between the Apple cable and ESR cable I used in this video was negligible which is nice. Unlike some of the other lightning cables I’ve used in previous videos. If you think those $10 dollar cables at the gas station are a good deal, watch that video. So how about the 87W charger. Is it the fastest of the bunch? It isn’t. It’s actually charges at the same rate as the 29W charger despite having more than double the potential wattage. This may seem odd but these higher Wattage chargers are based on the USB-PD specification which allows the device to pull in the maximum power it can handle. At the end of the day, for Qi-charging to be a decent alternative, it’s needs to be faster. Much much faster because the money you’d spend on a charger would better be spent on getting a higher wattage laptop charger ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to stay in the loop!

Should you get Whoosh! Diamond Defense for your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch? Find out in our Whoosh! Diamond Defense Review!
In short, I’d get Whoosh Diamond Defense if I wanted the maximum amount of protection for my device, on top of a case and a normal screen protector. Liquid screen protectors aren’t a stand alone product when it comes to screen protection.
Honestly, the only upside is the fact that you can add tiny extra bit of protection to all your devices by slathering Whoosh Diamond Defense across everything.

At Mobile Reviews Eh, Monty and I base all our reviews on actual usage. This video isn’t sponsored by Whoosh so that means I get to tell you the truth! One of the things I wanted to find out with this product is whether or not it can fill in cracks or scratches.
From my understanding, every liquid screen protector is generally the same. It’s made from Silicone Dioxide or SiO2. It’s liquid glass. You’re basically adding a thin layer of glass to your existing glass.
Installation of the Diamond Defense is quite simple. First you clean your device by rubbing it down with an alcohol wipe. Then you apply the screen protector by using the wet wipe found in the package called Nano liquid. Once you’ve covered your device with the fluid from the wet wipe, you wait a few minutes for it to dry and then buff your screen with the included microfibre cloth. You can do this as many times as you want. The wet wipe installation is why they say it fits ALL smart phones. According to Whoosh, their product doesn’t result in bubbles either. This might have been a big deal a few years ago but the adhesives on modern screen protectors are quite good at being bubble free.
Now Whoosh doesn’t tell you this but liquid screen protectors will take between 24-48 hours to fully cure.
Now the footage that you’re seeing right now is my attempt at trying to see if a liquid screen protector would lessen the cracks this iPhone X incurred. I couldn’t see a noticeable difference after the screen protector was applied. I believe at this moment of capturing this video clip, I was thinking Whoosh could have given me an actual wet wipe and I wouldn’t know any difference.
How about scratches? Here’s my Apple Watch Series 3 after applying the Diamond Defense and the giant gash across the front is still quite giant.
Now one of the selling features of the Diamond Defense is it’s claim that it provides superior scratch resistance. Now logically, if the wet wipe did come with liquid glass, I am technically adding another layer of glass to my device which would be extra scratch protection.
BUT here’s the thing. Diamond Defense basically fuses with the existing glass. You can’t take it off. So if you manage to scratch that thin layer of glass, it’s going to look like you’ve permanently damaged your smartphone’s screen.
Which is probably why Whoosh! has a disclaimer on the back that claims it doesn’t make your 100% scratch proof. Superior scratch resistance that isn’t 100% scratch proof.
Whoosh also placed this sticker on my box saying that it makes screens up to 15x stronger. I was unable to test that claim as I didn’t have the foresight to do what I did to the Crystal Tech Nano 2.0 liquid screen protector so if you want to see how much strong 15-30 molecules of glass is, check out that review video.
The last thing I will say is that Whoosh! doesn’t market the supposedly oleophobic properties of their liquid screen protector which is odd since Spigen and CrystalTech does. Good on them because I’m not sure liquid screen protectors actually add back the oleophobic coating to any smart phone.
