Laundered No 11.

Somerthing interesting happened today ..I was unloading the washing machine and noticed one of my No 11's was sitting in the bottom of the tub.. it musta slipped out of my shirt pocket earlier.. anyway I took it all apart, dried and blew it all off pulled the tape off the lipo and cleaned up the terminals then put other tape back and recharged it for abut 30 minutes but the RED LED did not come ON but .. and the AMBER would not either with NO Chip in the cam.. so I figured it was gone Pulled the micro SD chip and tried it on a good card reader .. it too was dead.. so it looked like a total loss but an hour later I glanced over and saw AMBER blinking cause I had left it charging .. and I put in a different chip, and I'll be darned if it doesn't work... but not with the orig $50 CL 10 microSD... that is still bad.. the chip looks FAR more waterproof than the camera but did not like the 30 minute sumberged jostle in HOT water..
