The smartphone can take on most modern challenges, but its mortal enemy remains the toilet bowl. Our addiction to texting and the constant need to update our social media status means that our smartphones are in constant danger of being dropped in (best case scenario) a lot of water. I’ve always had a bag of rice ready for such a eventuality but Kensington have gone one step further with the EVAP Wet Electronics Rescue Pouch (which they claim is 700% more effective).

EVAP contains a unique drying agent that removes the moisture from sensitive electronics and prevents damage. Rice has the danger of adding moisture and artifical heat sources can damage your batteries. The EVAP pouch has none of these worries and even tells you when your device is dry and ready to be resucitated.
