You’ll see int he video that over the weekend I put it through a durability test through water, concrete, nails, wood, threw it about 10 feet into an oil tank and capped it all off with a run through a table saw. So it can certainly handle a great deal. TELUS is giving one off these away through their “So you think you’ve had a tough day” contest.
