There are a plethora of tutorials on how to remove water out of your phone if you drop it in water by accident, but there aren’t many that are specific to the phone charging port.
I thought we’d offer these techniques in the hopes that they’ll come in handy the next time you need to remove water from your phone’s charging port. Whether you have an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, these suggestions will help you.
Note: We recommend that you double-check that the water hasn’t penetrated your device, since turning it on and attempting to charge it while it has water in the panel might cause severe harm, including the panel is fully roasted.
How to Get Water Out Of Phone Charging Port Using Wool
Using cotton wool or an absorbent cloth to get water out of a phone’s charging port is one option. Turn your phone off so the pin doesn’t cause electrical bridges >> wrap cotton wool or a small piece of absorbent clothing around a toothpick, pin, or needle (make sure it’s small enough to fit into the space in the charging port) >> and gently move it around, drying the port >> you’ll want to leave your phone turned off for some time so air gets into the port before turning it on.
How to Get Water Out Of Phone Charging Port with Rice
Rice is known to help phones dry rapidly, and we’re confident that it will work for your charging port. If you’ve already tried wool and your phone is still giving you the wetness warning, try putting it in dry rice overnight. It is always effective.
Note that putting your gadget in rice should be done with caution. Small rice particles can damage your phone, so make sure no particles enter it once the water drains from the charging port.
How to Get Water Out Of Phone Charging Port with a Fan
A standing fan is a terrific source of air that is more powerful and steady. A fan is concentrated, the air is dry, and it is consistent, so all sections of the charging port dry faster than if it were left to dry on the dining table. It is really more effective to place your Android or iPhone in front of a fan after cleaning it with cotton wool or a dry cloth.
How to Get Water Out Of Phone Charging Port with a Vacuum Hose
This is again another excellent choice. Because the water in the charging ports isn’t enough to harm the machine, you can get away with sucking the water out with a vacuum hose. It works like a charm.
What To and Not To Do When Your Phone Gets Into Water
If your phone or a part of it becomes wet, or if you get soaked in the rain and water gets into the charging port, speakers, mouthpiece, battery, or other elements of your phone, here’s what to do and what not to do.
Turn Phone OFF Immediately
If you suspect water has entered your phone, switch it off as quickly as possible. Water is a great conductor of electricity, and while the current going from your battery into your phone is relatively harmless, the water in the panel is capable of causing significant damage to your phone. Before resuming the device, you should switch it off and leave it off until you’re positive the panel is completely dry.
Rinse in Fresh Water
If you think water has gotten into your phone, switch it off right away. While the voltage travelling from your battery to your phone is mild, the water in the panel is powerful enough to inflict significant damage to your phone. Before resuming the device, you should turn it off and leave it turned off until you’re 100% sure the panel is dry.
It’s not a good idea to plug your phone into a power source while it’s still wet, and for a while after you’ve gotten the water out of the charging port. Because moisture takes time to dry, try not to leave the phone plugged in for at least 5 hours. Even after this period has passed, if your smartphone has a wireless charging capability, we recommend utilising it until your phone is fully functional.
Too Much Heat Is Bad
Yes, a little warmth around your phone will help it dry quickly after being submerged in liquid, but be careful how much heat your phone is exposed to. While leaving your phone in the sun shouldn’t harm it, placing it too close to an electric bulb or a fireplace could. In fact, leaving your phone in a well-ventilated place is ideal for most liquid droplets.
Disable Moisture Notification
This is just for Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, S9, S9+, or S10 users who are convinced that their charging ports are dry but still receive a moisture notification. Other Android smartphones should have something similar.
Go to Settings >> select Battery Usage >> scroll down to Recent Battery Usage >> find and tap on Android System >> tap on Force Stop (you will get a warning that it could cause system problems). Turning it OFF did away with the “Detecting Moisture” notification that was making it impossible to charge my device.
Don’t Try Blowing the Water Out with Your Mouth
Many of us would try to blow the water out of the phone charging port if we were wondering how to remove water out of a phone charging port, however blowing into your smartphone charging port often pushes the water to travel deeper into the charging port, making it more difficult to dry.
