    My Samsung Galaxy 6S decided to take a spin in the washing machine. After 36 hours in a bowl of rice with a fan blowing on it, then charging it it amazingly powered up and seemed to be fully restored. However, I now notice that my battery drains incredibly fast. Within 10 minutes of removing the charger it drops to 95%. Within an hour with no use to 90% and with minimal use (checking emails for 10 minutes) it drops to about 85%. By mid-day with no additional use it is at 50%. The phone is already on battery saving mode, I don't have it roaming for a wi-fi signal or location, and other apps that I don't need aren't running.

    Is there any hope of restoring battery life or is it doomed?

    I ran a Droid Maxx through the washer and after towel drying I placed it on the dashboard of my car on a sunny day with windows up and let it bake for about 6 hours and never had a problem with it however, no way of knowing if that will fix your battery issue. Hopefully you have insurance......

    Welcome to Android Central! Water damage can be unpredictable, and hopefully it's only a battery issue for you. If the problem gets worse, you may have to bring it to a repair shop to replace the battery.
