Dropped my meter (Next One) into the toilet. Got it out (a bit yuck but not the worst yuck if you know what I mean) within 10 seconds, rinsed it off and it had a reading but it was way low. Hit it with compressed air from my shop air, for a while. Tested it again and it still works. QUESTION: has anyone dropped their Next One into water and had it work ok for the next few months? I called Ascencia (sp?) and they documented what happened. At this time, since it is working, they declined to replace the meter now but promised they will if it fails in the future. I’m fine with that as I have backups.
FYI: The “first” I am referring to is a first time of dropping any electronics including a bg meter that is something I’ve used since the mid 1990’s. It could have been worse–like dropping my cell into the toilet, or my pump. I have no backups for either of them.
