    Does My BB Need To Breathe?

    Advertisement



    ok really dumb question, but do BB's need air. I know some electronics need airflow or else they overheat... what im getting at is that im going on a trip with some friends this weekend, and i know well be swimming, fishing, playin sum random other games, and a whole lotta pranking. So its gonna be humid, sweaty, watery and anything else you can think of, so i was jus gonna plastic wrap my pearl before i go. Will this do any harm?

    Thanks in advance, The Coyote

    If I was going camping I would use a food saver and vaccum seal it! There would be no way my BB would come anywhere close to the water.

    Be careful about the water damage indicator, some people say it's easily accessed so I would be very careful. Other than that GOOD LUCK! GOD SPEED!

    hey coyote a ziploc bag is a better idea we use them all the time on the boat, when we have to anchor and swim into the beach for cocktails

    RE ZIP LOCK - Reddog has a good point - I have read that a high moisture level may turn the water indicator inside the phone which would void your waranty! Be careful!

    ZIPLOC ALL THE WAY! My device survived Songkran in Bangkok http://www.thailandlife.com/songkran/index.php using a trusty ol' Ziploc for three days and nights straight, To those of you unfamiliar with Thailand and Thai culture I included a link that will tell you more about Songkran.
