Product of the Week
Bheestie Bags are revolutionary devices that can actually save small electronics from water and moisture damage. Whether itís an accidental spill on your phone, camera or iPod; or the device was used outdoors with moisture in the air- this is a solution that any hiker, fisher, runner, cyclist, snowboarder/skier, etc., should have on hand. Here's how Bheestie Bags work, simply remove the battery from the electronic device (if applicable), and drop the device in the Bheestie Bag, zip and seal. It can be done overnight, or immediately after an 'accident' or daily for preventative measures. It contains powerful water absorbing beads that physically bond and removing the water, proven to be much more successful than any home remedy. The bag can last up to a year for everyday use or less if used for extreme soaking. www.Bheestie.com
