Now, a minicooker that saves water-damaged cell phones

By Nairita Das

New York, Aug 11 (ANI): Dropped your cell phone into the toilet? No problem. Heat it in the new mini cooker called 'Dryer Box' - which saves your phone from going kaput.

Manufactured by a Japanese gadget company, the minicooker costs 1,000 yen (about 12 dollars).

If they fail to rescue the device after 30 minutes, there's no charge.

If they do hit the United States, they are bound to cause a rage.

"Me and phones don't get along too well," The New York Daily News quoted Paolo Glaude, a 21-year-old student from Harlem, as saying.

His BlackBerry was once saved after a dousing but was never the same again.

"If it's water damage, you have to pay for a whole new phone sometimes - but sometimes you have to lie," he said.

In the meantime, dropping their dripping-wet phone into a bag of ice to absorb the moisture seems like the only idea. (ANI)
