    Recently, there has been quite a few posts regarding hot tubbing with your phone, dropping it in the toilet and running it through a washing cycle.
    Here is a $14.50 investment which could save you hundreds down the road.​

    When Electronics Get Dunked - it needs full rescue within minutes.
    Electronics when made are Baked.
    Only G-Forced bake process - fully functional within 2 hours.

    Letting electronics sit soaked for days - Insane.
    Circuit boards under microscope would show corrosion path at every soldered joint.
    All resistors to diodes would take on new values - or shorted.

    Electronics like MBP 13" $3000.00 laptops - the battery is not removable.
    Full G-forced recovery of full submersion has to take place within minutes.

    The insane Rice paddy in a bowl nonsense - now beads?
    Right. We'd have ended up with $3K of worthless billet Aluminum.

    Now the dunked Coke in the keys trick- to plating electronics.
    Stick in down into beads/rice - to form a new epoxy?
    It's needs full emersion flush - G-forced heat recovery.
    Best of Luck -

    I didn't understand a lot of this post; there seemed to be a lot of sentence fragments and jargon. What is "G-Forced" bake process? And what has $3,000 laptops got to do with it?

    I mentioned this before but it's on an older thread and no sense in trying to dig it up.

    If your phone goes swimming the keys to successful recovery are first, if possible to remove the battery. The minute electronics can be quickly and irreversibly damaged by the high current and voltage from the battery traveling along shorts in the circuitry caused by common water sources.

    Water, which is a conductor (except for the most pure water such as distilled or deionized), creates paths for the battery's full voltage and current to travel and can enable such high voltages and currents to pass through highly sensitive components and integrated circuits at levels which can melt the microscopic traces and wires in them.

    The second, and perhaps equally important piece of advice is to get all the water out of the device as quickly and completely as possible. This is where a trick I created works wonders to speed up the process. Take an old tube sock and slide the phone onto it positioned so the bottom edge of the phone is in the toe of the sock and it's vertical in the sock.

    Next, either go outside or in an area of your home with plenty of clearance around you and high ceilings and begin swinging the sock around in circles as fast as you can and for as long as you can. The centrifugal force created by swinging the sock in a large circle fast will cause the water in the device to "spin out". This, if done before you place the device into a rice or another desiccant such as the beads mentioned, will make the phone nearly completely dry and leave only the remaining surface moisture inside for the desiccant to remove. This speeds up the drying process significantly, cutting drying time by a wide margin, and could be the difference between a full recovery and a partial or complete failure.

    I agree that the sentences are less sentences and more bullet points. To decipher, see my answers above under each line.

    From my point of view, what he's said is both highly technical, and also very accurate and valuable information, but like most highly technical, engineer types, they have some level of difficulty bringing it down to the level of the layperson to understand. Fortunately for me (and you), I have the knack for both the highly technical and the layperson explanation so this should help (hopefully).

    His post was a good one and I for one am glad to have him as a member. I will try to be there to assist in translation when I can.

    The staff of DF will not be held liable if you happen to let that sock go while swinging.

    a. MBP right out of the box = $3k & Wk later under water.
    Fully rescued & using right now.
    Baked = Electric heater, forced air right at it overnight in closed space at roughly 200F while laptop is open & sitting on edge at angle on padded material to make any water go to the bottom corners.

    G'-factor - Any action max applied to force water out - w/o loosing grip.
    Till not one more drop of water exits.
    One could modify a custom rack - on spin cycle of washing machine.

    Not Rocket Science, but lobby was only option at Holiday Inn.

    Pretty much validates all my explanations. The G-force thing is my sock idea.

    Ever try to dry one dripping wet cotton sock in the dryer on cold air only? Good luck 3 days later.

    Agreed. The sock is just to force out the bulk of water, then the rest of your explanation would follow.
