    Today we're taking an old myth, that putting your phone in rice will remove water, and comparing it to another water extraction process- a vacuum chamber. Is one better than the other, and does a vacuum chamber even work?

    12. Shadowreaper50

      It helps if you take the battery out guys. I also put it in the rice and I put it on the dash of my car. The sun will heat up my car and that seems to help take the moisture out. I've saved 3 phones like this. Admittedly none of them were this walmart super phone, but they were saved.

    13. Josh Collazo

      If u drop your phone in water turn the oven on at 200 wrap your phone in a towel or shirt and put it on top of the stove for about 20 minutes with the battery out and it will work 100%i have done it before

    14. Bradley Whais

      This might be more inefficient than heat...

    15. Nathan Navarro

      Thats the phone i watched this on

    16. Random Shenanigans

      They should investigate why warm air drys faster than cold

    17. #gemeinde4ever

      Best way I’ve thought to save a wet phone is, silica packets. Those little “do not eat” packets that come with shoes and such, collect them in a zip-lock bag. Seems to work the best, without any residue that rice may leave. I’m sure you can also order the packets if you don’t wanna wait to collect several.

      I'd like to see this again, but put drying salts in the bottom.

    26. art_ and_lee

      Could you cook food in a vacuum chamber.

    27. Jonn

      It's not the rice, it's the anti-stick coating on the rice. Also, you needed a third phone as a control experiment.

    28. Wyvrenne MacDaniels

      Can you boil ramen noodles with a vacuum

    29. 정진배

      3:55 check the backround 😢😭😢😭😢😭😢😭😢

    30. Aidan Glendenning

      Why eat rice?

    31. Harsh Dinani


    32. Medroff

      Was that Phil Swift on the fridge?😂😂😂

    33. TheLoneCabbage

      If you get your phone wet, absolutely do not start pressing buttons to see if it's okay. Take the battery out, clean off any excess water, and let it dry completely before checking it.

    34. Bio Wolf

      You guys should try making Mac and cheese in the vacuum chamber.

    35. Davidtay YT

      can vacuum chamber make popcorn? and what will happend if you put meat in vacuum chamber??

    36. sonal patel

    39. Joseph Hull

    40. TheFrostDrake

      Why not just put a wet phone in front of a dehumidifier

    41. Karl S. Kruse

      lol i have tcl phone

    42. Danielle Cantrell

      For some reason I’m loving their intro diversity. Anyone else notice their intros aren’t always the same or am I not watching them in order? 😂

    43. pepon from space

      What I learned from this video: Walmart phones arnt that bad in quality

    44. Maui Islander

      You have to fully submerge your phone in the rice in order for your phone to functionally work properly



    46. secretagb

      So just a heads up, the first step after discovery of a phone or other electronic device falling in water or becoming heavily splashed etc, is to remove the battery!!! I cannot stress enough that power should be removed from the device ASAP. Then you can proceed with efforts to dry out the innards.

    47. clean beat

      Can you make rice in a vacuum chamber?

    48. STRS

      I answer before I even watch the video and say that, No rice is not the best option but it is the fastest, always accessible and cheapest for anyone that doesn't have the tools and know how to save his phone. Thus it is the best first action!

    49. Rachelle Moore

      can you heat up glass

    50. SpyerSecol 001

      Stick the phone in the microwave for 5 minutes. All dry now...... :(

    51. Cam Nely

      Me and my dad made that same claw, but with cardboard. An the syringes leaked... but it still worked!

    52. Tristin Church

      If the water is boiling in a vacuum chamber, does that mean its hot?

    53. Brett

      How about a wet phone in the freeze dryer?

    54. Madison Sims

      Try freeze drying makeup plez

    55. Zxc cxZ

      Put it on rice by days not minutes

    56. Randy DePuy

      Crystal Kittie litter
