Offering the same kind of functionality as iFixit's Thirsty Bag, the EVAP Wet Electronics Rescue Pouch ($20) from Kensington is made to help dry out your iPhone or iPod if it ends up getting wet. In the event that you do drop your device in a pool or lake, the idea is that you can put it into the bag, which contains a drying agent the company says is 700% more effective at removing moisture than rice. A humidity indicator will show you, after six to 24 hours, when it's ready to be removed. Of course, there are no guarantees that the bag will keep your phone from being fried, but it has a better chance at restoring a waterlogged device to normal than nothing at all.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
