Re: Should all handsets be water-resistant?

I find it strange that a quick dunk in water sometimes has end of life circumstances for phones. Having been an angler for longer than I care to admit we use bite indicators that are battered by the rain at times and never a issue with water ingress into the electronics.

I feel a conspiracy theory brewing

Rain water is clean to a large extent.

De-ionised/distilled water can be used as collant in direct contact with components. (Well some precautions haha)

It's the rubbish we have in our water added by the water board that creates the ability to conduct electricity.

 

however I'm sure you know that alreadySmiley Happy
