Arduboy in the washer? [SOLVED] 🍚

In fact this one is actually a bit thicker than the one you find inside the Arduboy.
Packs more juice? :sunny:
Ultra-thin means 5mm and powerbank on Taobao…
Ugh. (I hate that place, but sometimes you also get really good stuff.)

I didn’t even use rice, I just left it out to dry and it worked perfectly

The good thing about the arduboy is its simplicity. There really isn’t very much in the way of circuitry so there’s less to go wrong. A modern smart phone in the wash on the other hand is very likely (but not guaranteed) to die.

And if you need to change a component, it’s not very hard and not expensive.

Such was the fate of my dad’s last phone …

Can we all take a moment of silence for CDR_Xavier dad’s phone …

No need for that. He was looking for a replacement anyway.
Just remind me to bring my extra drone battery and stuff to the school on Dec 31.
But my recorder (rather modern, with 2GB on board flash and a rather powerful processor for doing music and LCD and blah blah) survived the accident.
