    My nexus 5 took a dip recently into a puddle during some pretty heavy rains here in Chicago over the weekend. The charging port isn't working anymore and actually after drying it off for a while I plugged in the charger that night it got really hot and now the port will not charge at all. Anyone know a good US source of replacement parts? Replacing the charging port seems fairly simple but I don't know where to find the part from a reputable source. I checked out ETrade Supply but of course being in Hong Kong shipping is almost as much for the part itself! Thanks in advanced.
