Wet iPod or cell phone? Bheestie Bag

By March 24, 2012

Follow me on:

Bheestie BagI don't let a little rain stop me from walking, but moisture can wreak havoc on your electronic gadgets. Even if you carry them under a raincoat, they can get steamed from your body moisture. The Bheestie Bag (Compare Prices) can be used daily to dry out your iPod, cell phone, pedometer or other electronics. Just turn off the device and pop it into the bag overnight. The drying beads remove moisture.

What if you dropped your cell phone in a puddle (or, heaven forbid, a toilet?) and now it's soaked and dead? How about the infamous "pedometer in the laundry?" I gave the Bheestie Bag a true test with that one this week as I washed the New Lifestyles NL-2000i pedometer they sent me to review.  I took out the battery and put the pedometer in the Bheestie Bag for 24 to 72 hours.  When I took it out after three days, I put in the battery and it was risen from the dead! Think of the Bheestie Bag as an extra insurance policy against such common accidents.
