Today we're taking an old myth, that putting your phone in rice will remove water, and comparing it to another water extraction process- a vacuum chamber. Is one better than the other, and does a vacuum chamber even work?

What happens if you put a sealed bottle of water in a vacume chamber? Or a empty bottle with the cap glued on?

👍👍Rice worked for me before on a old Nokia. The bag or container has to be sealed to draw water into the rice I thought. Other wise u r drying the entire room? I think

With rice I've always left my electronics in it for about 24hrs and it has never failed, Im unsure how long you left it in the rice for this video but I'll assume 15mins as you did with the vacuum chamber

For the rice bit, aren't you supposed to take the battery out if the phone allows? The idea is that the rice absorbs the residual water. It's not gonna absorb any water that's inside the phone if the rice isn't at least sort of in the phone. I'm sure the vacuum chamber is still gonna be better for obvious reasons but the rice would have worked better if done, ya know. Correctly.

HannibalVexor Il y a 3 mois
i honestly used to love these shows but now, you seem to be throwing in things just to bulk up the content, i mean you tested the rice for 15 mins?Doesnt matter how hygroscopic something is. its not going to draw out water from a tight, compact space in that time and all you've done is make people believe rice doesnt work. where in fact it does work and is probably the best thing most normal people have to hand.

I used to manage a cell phone repair store, rice does absolutely nothing to a wet phone. Any electronics needs to be ultrasonicallly cleaned in order to remove corrosion.

It helps if you take the battery out guys. I also put it in the rice and I put it on the dash of my car. The sun will heat up my car and that seems to help take the moisture out. I've saved 3 phones like this. Admittedly none of them were this walmart super phone, but they were saved.

If u drop your phone in water turn the oven on at 200 wrap your phone in a towel or shirt and put it on top of the stove for about 20 minutes with the battery out and it will work 100%i have done it before

Best way I’ve thought to save a wet phone is, silica packets. Those little “do not eat” packets that come with shoes and such, collect them in a zip-lock bag. Seems to work the best, without any residue that rice may leave. I’m sure you can also order the packets if you don’t wanna wait to collect several.
