Here’s what Redux can do: by combining heat and pressure, it can safely evaporate any and all liquid that’s trapped in your phone. Liquid that, if met with electricity, would have fried your phone. That’s the key point, here: the moisture isn’t the bad part – it’s the electricity and moisture together that cook your phone. Fortunately, there are a few steps you should follow in order to ensure a successful revive.
It’s fairly simple. Bring your device in to a Redux location and the technicians will do the rest. They’ll place your soggy device in the Redux machine and, over the course of an hour or so, it evaporates the liquid inside your phone.
Please note that while Redux is completely awesome, there are things it can’t fix – for example, if your device got banged up during its surprise bath and it messed with any of the internal hardware, there’s not a whole lot Redux (or anyone) can do. Same goes for plugging in your phone – there’s a chance you fried it.
But that doesn’t mean you should give up hope.
Let’s start with the most important point: if you’ve plugged in your phone or sustained other damage, Redux might not be able to resurrect your device. In that case, you only pay a $10 diagnostic fee.
When there’s a successful revive (yay!) you’re looking at $50 for a basic phone and $90 for a smartphone, along with the original $10 diagnostic fee.
For the rightfully cautious and/or exceptionally clumsy, there’s at $29.99 membership that covers up to two revives on your device over the course of two years. Considering most phone insurance doesn’t include compensation for water damage, that’s quite a deal.
If it’s electronic and it fits inside a Redux machine (10 7/8” x 8 1/8” x 4 3/8”), they’ve got you covered.
We’re all human. Phones get wet. Redux saves those phones. Learn more about how Redux can save your device by checking out the Redux website for a location close to you.
