STORY TELLER: LATRELL JENNINGS.
A YouTuber by the name of Latrell Jennings (me, the story teller) has took it upon himself to make a YouTube video where he puts his phone in a tub full of cold water while it's charging. Of course, this is a very dangerous move I made that nobody, and I mean NOBODY should do at home, but this is to show you what'll actually happen. Well how did it go? You may be asking... If you are listening on the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, or any other device with Alexa, visit the article on the TrendNation website to continue reading.
If you are currently reading this on the TrendNation website, the video is right above to view. But if you are currently listening on the Amazon Alexa device or reading with the TrendNation app, visit this story on the website. Anyways... the results definitely weren't as expected...
Surprisingly, nothing happened. Absolutely nothing. No shock, no electrocution, no reaction, nothing. Absolutely nothing.
I honestly thought something would happen, but electricity and water played nicely this time. While this phone is water resistant (and it wouldn't make a difference anyways) it's not water resistant as soon as the charging port is open and exposed to water. It gets damaged, just like any other non-water resistant phone.
At the end of the video, you can see that once the phone stayed in the water with the ports opened, it was done for after some fast forwarding. It's no longer a water resistant phone.
Keep in mind about charging it underwater though... If you watched the video, you probably heard I said it was "some cheap Chinese charger" (which it was) and the fact that it was really blew my mind. How could it be so? Say it ain't so.
Nothing on YouTube really covered this topic, so I said... Why not? (Besides the risk of badly injuring myself)
