PHONEDRS Phone Drying Technology

moisture on mobile phone


Moisture is consistently one of the top 5 leading causes of damage to cell phone electronics and can cause intermittent to catastrophic failures. Moisture, even in the form of water vapor, finds its way into the smallest areas of cell phone electronics, causing corrosion. Condensation resulting from moving between cold and warm areas is also an issue. Sweat is one more form of moisture, with additional corrosive effects from the salt element. And last, but not least, is the fact that many cell phones are accidentally immersed in water. Even today’s ‘waterproof’ phones are not immune to these problems.


Heat and moving air are the two primary elements of drying. Heat is needed to break the surface tension of water molecules and release them from the product. Airflow is important to move the water molecules out of small environments. PHONEDRS incorporates both heat and airflow to remove water molecules during our six-hour drying process to help to improve your phone’s performance. One important note is that cell phones contain lithium-ion batteries, which do not tolerate high heat. Most battery manufacturers recommend that the batteries should not be exposed to temperatures over 100°F. PHONEDRS uses precisely-controlled circuitry to ensure that the heat is sufficient to enable the drying process while not becoming an issue for the lithium-ion batteries in the phone.


The patented drying process used in the PHONEDRS can remove 20 drops of moisture per each drying cycle. (Not sure how much that is? Just visualize a typical 16 oz water bottle cap about one-third full). This helps to reduce costly repairs (studies done with audio products have shown that our drying process reduces the need for repair by 2/3) and aids in improving the fidelity of the audio in your phone through the simple act of drying each night.

*For phones that are totally immersed in water, this product MAY help in drying them out. There is no guarantee on that front. For these cases, specific instructions must be followed, which can be found here.
