Imagine yourself in the restroom of a restaurant. You are happily taking a leak when you suddenly had the urge to read the posted wall signs usually located eye level on top of a toilet bowl or urinal. As you fish out your glasses in your breast pocket for a better view, your phone suddenly tumbles out and drops directly into the water. Oh No! What do you do? You pull out your Bheestie bag and place your wet phone inside it is what you need to do. A Bheestie bag, which is the a product of a manufacturer called Bheestie and company, is a 7 by 9 inch foil bag that promises to effectively draw out water and moisture from any wet electronics device using a couple hundred little BB-sized white pellets made up of water-absorbing chemicals.
The key to the success of the Bheestie bag are the water absorbing pellets inside the bag that promise to be 700 percent more absorbent than the usual materials used for water and moisture absorption like that of Silica Gel or dry ice. The majority of the BB-sized pellets inside the foil bag are white in color. However, there a few blue ones mixed in that lose or change their color indicating that their water absorbing quality is already diminishing and that a new Bheestie bag should already be purchased.
The 7 by 9 inch size available in the market today is currently the only size that is currently being produced. This limits the types of electronic devices that it can save from their watery grave to that of iPods, iPads, average size tablets and mobile phones. Unfortunately, the current size of the Bheestie bag does not yet allow you to save a wet laptop as it would not be possible to insert one in the bag.
Drying out period
The period of time one needs to seal their wet electronic device inside the bheestie bag differs depending on the amount of water or moisture that you are trying to remove from your equipment. For regular day wetness or moisture like that of accidental splashes or moisture from an iPod being drenched in one’s sweat after a long run in the park, you can just store the device in the bag until the next time you use it like in a few hours. However, for a device that got totally soaked in water a 24 – 72 hour storage time inside the sealed bag is called for.
The Bheestie bag presents yet another great way for us to save our expensive electronics device from wetness or moisture. You may one to keep one handy in your bag for a rainy day.Tags: ipadlaptop
