    My wife's iPhone 5 went for a swim the other day. I thought we got lucky as it seemed to work fine, but now when it is plugged in to charge, the battery barely moves. It might get to 10% after an hour.
    I am wondering if the battery is the problem, or I also read it could be the charging circuit?
    Anyone have an opinion based on experience?

    Thanks,

    I would agree that is probably the charging circuit that has gone. Have you tried putting it in rice overnight?

    No, not yet. I was going to before it seemed like it was working fine.
    I'll give it a try.

    Thanks,
