    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?

    7. art_ and_lee

      Could you cook food in a vacuum chamber.

    8. 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.

    9. Wyvrenne MacDaniels

      Can you boil ramen noodles with a vacuum

    10. 정진배

    13. Medroff

      Was that Phil Swift on the fridge?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    14. 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.

    15. Bio Wolf

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

    16. Davidtay YT

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

    19. Shreeshree 345

    21. TheFrostDrake

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

    22. Karl S. Kruse

    23. 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? πŸ˜‚

    24. pepon from space

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

    25. Maui Islander

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

    26. BILLY BOB JOE

      I HAVE BOTH OF THOSE KITS

    27. 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.

    28. clean beat

      Can you make rice in a vacuum chamber?

    29. 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!

    30. Rachelle Moore

      can you heat up glass

    31. SpyerSecol 001

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

    32. Cam Nely

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

    33. Tristin Church

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

    34. Brett

      How about a wet phone in the freeze dryer?

    35. Madison Sims

      Try freeze drying makeup plez

    36. Zxc cxZ

      Put it on rice by days not minutes

    37. Randy DePuy

      Crystal Kittie litter

    38. David Ortiz

      Could you cook pasta inside of a vacuum chamber because it boils water!!

    39. Steve Alex

      Calli: HOORAY we broke stuff Techrax: hold my broken iphones

    40. Laxmi Prasad Maharjan

      Who saw Calli sneaking rice...?😁

    41. Alpha Omega

    42. Stigs stupid cousin

      the point with rice is, it attract some asian and he'll fix your damaged phone.. so you need to left it a whole night, or the asian wont come.

    43. Mwisha Ludack

      Rice will always work better, and you know it.

    44. shop10

      Can you COOK Pasta in a vacuum chamber? (with water)

    45. TheGamer 1360

      plz can you do edible fire thxs

    46. Valkyrie

      If I was trying to save the phone I would use them both as a rice chamber

    47. Artimus Protensor

      I used to dry my socks in the microwave when I was in a hurry. That ended when I caught a pair on fire.

    48. Smackydafrog

      I want to know what phone it is that managed to survive the water. I want you to test its durability too... I need a cheap replacement for my wifes phone.

    49. Silverpr

      That's crazy

    50. Pikarill

      I have the Tinker, Eureka, and Doodle crates from KiwiCo. I must say, they are great.

    52. Ryan Munson

      "it's about room temp" "65 degrees"- me, an Australian, *chokes on drink* w h a t "Fahrenheit" o h

    53. Daniel Nies

      I’ve heard salt is also meant to help dry out a wet phone. Supposedly it’s based on the fact that salt attracts water and it has been used to dry meats and also used in ancient embalming practices.

    54. Reverse360

      Can you use a vacuum to make a vacuum chamber

    55. Lee Davis

      What if you had water just above its freezing point and then put it in a vacuum chamber to measure what pressure the nearly frozen water would start boiling at?

    56. Randomaker

      I have that EXACT SAME phone as those 2 cheap ones XD

    57. Coloring With D

      Love this video. What about silica beads vs rice and vacuum chamber? Thank you for sharing 🌞🌞🌞

    58. Meg Smith

      Callie smashing things and using fire on everything is me. And i love it. She’s living my dream.

    59. Alex Higgins

    60. Soplesz

      I havent watched the vid. I think that shredded toilet paper would do best
