Just get a very concentrated alcohol (ethanol) – not the one diluted with water.

Using your mouth, blow air vigorously over the charging port of your phone. When you feel the lining of the interior part of the port is damp and does not contain water. 

Get a cotton wool, open the container of the highly concentrated alcohol (ethanol), and soak up a bit of it using the wool.

Then hold up your mobile phone exposing the charging port. Squeeze into it about 3 drops of the highly concentrated alcohol (ethanol) from the cotton wool. Let it evaporate gradually before a blowing standing fan.

After a while, check your port and confirm the magic by plugging  in your charger, there will be no moisture warning appearing this time if you followed the procedure properly.

How to Get Water Out Of Phone Charging Port Using Rice

It is a natural phenomenon that some food substances tend to be hygroscopic. Most people are aware that certain food items when left in the open for sometimes do change colour and get spoilt after absorbing moisture from the air over a period of time.

For example, food items like dry cassava flakes, and rice do absorb moisture from the air over time. 

Furthermore, that is why it is imperative to routinely sun these food items (sun dry them) periodically if they are for storage or hoarding business.

However, we would use this knowledge about the hygroscopic nature of food substances to our advantage in getting water out of charging port.

What to do: Just look for a bag of dry rice grains, and bury your entire phone into it. Leave it in there overnight, and in the morning, the water trapped will have disappeared. All thanks to the moisture absorbing nature of rice grains.

NB: Make sure the rice grains have big sizes surpassing the aligning spaces within the port. If not, some particles might get trapped.

Use an electric fan or a hand fan to create an artificial wind and concentrate it on the charging port area of your mobile device. It will help dry the water faster because wind causes fast evaporation of water present in the port by carrying away the resulting vapour when moving.
