Gotta dry it COMPLETELY prior to use. If the Battery was in a device, the odds are that the Batt and Device are shot.

Drop a cell in the toilet. YANK the Battery IMMEDIATELY, dry with hairdryer on low for a coupla hours...........

Usually works out just fine!

Water does NOT damage circuitry. Electrons across improper paths does!

It needs to thoroughly dry out before you can evaluate.

I had a similar thing happen to a DeWalt battery, but it was 85 degrees out, so I left it in direct sun for the day, took it home, let it acclimate to room temperature and it charged.

Oddly, and perhaps related, I dunno, it died about 2-3 months later.
