    Question Wet iPod Touch almost recovered, but...
    I put my iPod Touch through the wash last Friday. When I found it, I did NOT touch the power button; instead, I dried it in a food dehydrator overnight, and then buried it in rice for a day.

    Now, it seems tantalizingly close to being fully recovered. When I connect it to my computer or to an iPod charger, nothing happens. However, if I connect it to my slightly higher-powered iPad charger, it resets (Apple screen) and then starts up. The screen displays a 3/4 battery charge, and says that it's charging. When I slide to unlock, everything works.

    However, no matter how long I leave it connected, the battery still displays a 3/4 charge. And, the instant I disconnect the iPod from my iPad charger, it dies completely again. It won't mount in iTunes, and it won't start unless I reconnect it to the iPad charger.

    Question: is it worth it to replace the battery? Would a completely ruined battery cause the symptoms I describe? Or, is the damage more extensive?

    I'd love to hear some opinions!

    A bad battery could cause those symptoms but it may also be the charging circuitry itself that's not working. It's probably best to take it to your local Apple store and turn it around for a refurbished model. I'm not sure what the cost will be so be sure to ask ahead of time.
