It is estimated that over 30% of UK phones are being damaged in this way. Dropping down the toilet is high on the list, as is spilling a drink or leaving the phone in a pocket for accidental washing. And teenagers are a high risk group - hardly surprising when you think how much time our kids spend texting, surfing the net and rushing around – especially when they all go back to school.
Rescuetec inventor Phil Harvey said: “I‘ve lost count of the number of phones I’ve replaced for my teenagers. It’s not just the cost but the inconvenience of losing all your contacts, diary dates and those precious photographs you’d meant to back up but never got round to.
“So when phones get water damaged it can be catastrophic and like many, I’d tried homemade solutions like the good old bag of rice and a hair dryer, which incidentally can make things a whole lot worse. Enough was enough and the Rescuetec concept was born - a vacuum pack of highly absorbent scientific compounds which extract every last drop of moisture out of damaged phones.”
Rescuetec has undergone stringent laboratory tests and has also been proven to work on other personal electronic devices and cameras leaving them bone dry even after prolonged submersion in water.
Eminent scientist John Waddicor, who has a PhD in Adsorption Chemistry, explained: “After 15 years of working in humidity control, mostly in the very exacting pharmaceutical industry, there was a eureka moment when we realised the potential to apply this technical excellence to the increasing problem of water damaged phones.
“The Rescuetec pack consists of three essential elements - the high barrier multilayer foil pouch; an extremely powerful desiccant (moisture adsorber) and the humidity indicating system - all of which are state-of-the art in their own right. Combining these elements delivers a powerful, yet cost effective, product which provides an unequalled solution to regenerating electronic devices with have failed due to exposure to moisture or other aqueous liquids.”
Launched last month, early sales are far exceeding expectations with after-the-event Google searches currently dominating, but the smart money is on those people who have the foresight to keep a Rescuetec pack in the car or at home just in case of a liquid-based accident.
“It’s a bit like those stain removers we have under the sink,” added Phil Harvey. “We hope we’ll never need them but we probably will and at £14.99 better safe than sorry!”
