    The problem is that when the water boiled away it left some particles in the circuits which probably damaged the usb charger connector
    if that happened you have nothing to do :\

    Some L535 experienced a few minutes under water and worked fine for a life-time
    it all depends on the fall

    Wait what?
    dried overnight and in morning worked fine
    You should have left it to dry 3+ days... would have been better if you had put it out on the sun over the day, instead of soaking it in rice over the night
