Drying Box Saves Water-Damaged Phones

Drying Box Saves Water-Damaged Phones

DryBox pulls the moisture out of wet devices in about 25 minutes.

Use a vacuum cleaner, put it in a bag of uncooked rice, lay it on absorbent towels or napkins–these are just some of the supposed solutions to saving a water-damaged cellular phone. Texas-based¬†DryBox Rescue proposes a different fix–stick the wet phone inside their patent-pending drying chamber.

DryBox uses a patent-pending chamber that ‘rapidly removes moisture at the molecular level from small electronic devices.’ The drying process takes just under half an hour and the company claims an 80% success rate when it comes to saving water-damaged phones.

Currently, the DryBox locations are in San Antonio and Austin in Texas, but the brand is open for stores to become authorized dealers or partners.
