|The miracle headset|
It started over two years ago when I lost my headset and a good friend of mine (Charlie) had the same kind but did not like the silicon in-ear support. So he gave it to me as a replacement.
Since then I have been using it and never lost it. About 6 months ago my wife told me that my headset made it through the wash and dryer. To my surprise is actually worked without any issue. I was impressed and attributed the save to the fact that the battery might have been dead and that the dryer did the rest.
Well two days ago was a different story. I did the wash, and sure enough, I left my headset in my workout shorts. Now this time it was charged and on. I noticed it out of the wash and tested the on button when it was still wet. Nothing! I finally felt that the laws of physics got the best of this resilient device. In a desperate and last attempt to resuscitate, I decide to plug it in the charger...nothing... what could go wrong at this stage anyway? I felt like a cat trying to revive a dead mouse in hope that I could get a last "byte" out of it. To my surprise, the next morning it was fully charged, and I have been using it without any issues for the last 24 hours.
Luck or impressive engineering? I will try to avoid the charming third time.
