How to waterproof your iPhone 6, Android, or any other smartphone with this cheap aLOKSAK plastic bag

How to waterproof your iPhone 6, Android, or any other smartphone with this cheap aLOKSAK plastic bag
If you’ve ever searched for a decent waterproof case for your smartphone, you’ve probably stumbled upon some hundred dollar plus cases that do a good job, but that often look ridiculously large and that you’d probably never use after that few outdoor days. Why waste so much money then?

The aLOKSAK is a cheap and simple way to waterproof any device - be it a phone or a tablet. The advantages of the aLOKSAK are obvious: it’s light and easy to carry with you, and it fits all sizes and formats.

The aLOKSAK could then be used for things like underwater photography, as you get full access to the touchscreen of your phone, and if you’re trying to read in the swimming pool without risking to ruin your gadget, it’s a nice option.

Finally, the aLOKSAK is disposable and comes in batches (you can have three packs for around $8 for smaller sizes). If you need something to waterproof your device, without feeling the need to shell hundreds of dollars for a waterproof case, that might just be your option.

problem with those is that some are too thick and the touchscreen doesn't work properly on your inputs.

Did you just write an entire article about putting a phone into a plastic bag?...

I think we just read an article about a "special" plastic bag can waterproof your phone.

What about fogging like many bags get under water. Heat from the phone and cool water.

I hear they are going to take this to the next level with their new product: iNUTSAK.

LOL, a hefty/ziplock back will work just as well. Someone went to too much trouble to "design" this. Sounds like the old NASA program that spent millions, to develop an ink pen that would work in zero gravity. They showed it at some science thingy and someone asked a soviet astronaut what he thought about such breakthrough technology and they responded "we just use pencil"...

This is just a much more expensive Ziploc bag. They're cheaper and will do the job just as well...
