A Cheap Guide to Dealing with a Wet Laptop Explosion

Water damage is a nightmare for any laptop owner since it can occur in the most unexpected situations.  In this article, we'll discuss what happens to a wet laptop and how to replace it on a budget.


When liquid penetrates a laptop, it can short circuit the fragile electrical components. Water or other conductive liquids can cause a catastrophic surge of electricity, burning and even exploding the battery or power supply. 


What can you do to minimize explosion risk?


  • Power Down: Unplug the laptop to prevent additional harm. If feasible, remove the battery to turn off the power.


  • Dry It Out: Gently pat the laptop dry with a soft cloth, be careful not to move or tilt the device, as may spread the liquid.


  • Can you put your laptop in a bag of rice? This will suck the liquid away from the electrics and could save your computer and your hard work.


Buying a new laptop when you're already tight on cash can be a stressful experience. If you find yourself in a similar situation, think about the following options:


  • Consider purchasing a refurbished laptop from a trusted vendor or manufacturer. Second-hand electronics are an affordable option to brand-new ones because they are typically repaired to like-new condition and come with warranties.


  • Check if any usable components may be salvaged for a trade-in or sale if your broken laptop is beyond repair. The money you sold the component for can be used to buy a cheaper laptop or a used one. 


  • Several stores offer financing plans that break the whole cost down into monthly payments if you don’t have the capacity to pay in full in one transaction.


The loss of a laptop due to water damage is devastating and has dire implications, such as an explosion. Yet, if you act quickly and implement the aforementioned measures, you may be able to save your laptop from total destruction. If you find yourself in a position where you need to replace your laptop, it's important to do so in the most financially responsible way possible.
