Wet cellphone? DryBox may be able to help
Last Updated: 15:36 September 19, 2013
DryBox set up a table Wednesday at the Disaster Assistance Center, 1250 South Hover Road in Longmont at the Twin Peaks Mall and is offering the service daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
If you or someone you know has suffered flood damage and has a wet cellphone, DryBox representatives will try to save it along with all the contacts, pictures and data on it.
DryBox Ventures' managing partner David Knaumann and David Marchiori, inventor of the DryBox, are in Longmont, providing the service.
Knaumann said the patent-pending drying chamber that came on the market about two months ago removes moisture in 25 minutes and has an 85 percent success rate of fixing devices that have been wet for 24 to 36 hours. He said the rescue rate is 40 percent to 50 percent for devices that have been wet a few days longer.
The assistance center is at 1250 South Hover Road.
