Samsung Note 9 was promoted as waterproof. But not the pen. Little did I know, neither should be put under running water.

Even holding the phone upright under water, there’s capillary action taking place with the S Pen that’s quite snug in it’s place and the water will ride up into the S Pen holder.

Soon the S Pen was no longer functioning well as hovering over the screen, clicks the screen.

I almost bought a new S Pen when I thought, maybe I could dry the S Pen. But how?

I placed it over a distiller which generates a lot of heat for over 4 hours. And viola, the pen works and lives another day.
