Battery Draining after water damage

I dropped my iPhone in the toilet. Only the bottom half was exposed to water for a brief moment. At first the phone worked fine, no issues. About 1 hour later the screen was flickering lines/colors. Eventually, the phone shut off (this was due to the phone needing to be charged even prior to the incident).

I stupidly plugged the phone in when I got home to charge to see if it would still work. Phone would turn on however, only when plugged it. When phone did turn on after being plugged in I was unable able to get service..the phone just said "searching"

I then shut phone off and placed in a bag of rice for a day and a half. After this period of time the phone turned on and was back to almost normal.

The only issue I have with it now is that the battery drains quicker than normal. It will still last a good 6 hours or so. I also noticed that it will discharge when I shut it off. It no longer will stay charged through the night. Before I was able to charge my phone and the battery would last a full day. Now before bed it will say 100% charged, I wake up about 8-10 hours later and it will be at 10-20% or dead

I ordered a new battery out of desperation. Any other suggestions? I plan on cleaning out the phone with alcohol once I get my kit in the mail to open it up. I just hope it's not too late

I too have encountered the same problem. My little brother spilled water on my phone. I've come to notice that the battery lasts a normal amount of time when using it.

cathrynkeller, the first step I recommend is that you stop using it all together for now. The more you try to start it and to use it, the more you can damage. You definitely want to clean it properly. Use this guide to get it cleaned. It is written for a 3G but applies to your phone as well. Next thing to do is to replace the battery after that, reassemble and re-evaluate. Hope this helps, good luck.

Follow this guide to disassemble the phone and remove the logic board. Wipe/immerse the major components with 90%+ Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Let the parts sit out for 48 hours (possibly in front of a fan, if available), or longer so that they can thoroughly dry. Reassemble the device and test it. This should help ensure that it has a longer lifespan and prevents further corrosion down the line.
