    It may be too late it there was still moisture in the unit when you plugged it in but I would blow it out with compressed air and put it in a Rubbermaid container with rice for a few days.

    <<... I drained it and let it air out 24 hours before using...>>

    ...Rice not withstanding, it may take several days for your adapter to dry out. If it was just water, the likelihood that your adapter will start working again should be pretty good.

    Try leaving the adapter in a sunny location (or in a car in the sun) for a day or so and then try it...

    Yeah I hate that I plugged it in, but it was clean water so...I've revived phones that have been through worse. I think I'll try the hot car today heh

    A bag of rice is the best for sucking out the moist deep inside the adapter.

    I do use all those gestures in W8.1 to get at all Modern UI stuff. Also may be minority of 1 but love the Charms bar and will miss it when I go to 10. Stupid thing to kill: baby w/bathwater IMO.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002KDSXTA?This is better, but $28, ok for a $600 cell phone. A power cable, not so much maybe. Good to own though for multiple uses/insurance ;)

    I rolled back to 8.1. It's way snappier than 10 on the i3 SP3, at least from my experience thus far.

    Definitely not my experience on the i5. Everything from boot-up to shutdown (including starting programs, firefox responsiveness, inking in onenote, etc.) is snappier in 10.
