I was shooting at Lake Michigan this weekend and forgot I had my extra battery in my pocket and it got soaked. I dried it out and it appears okay. Should I risk putting in in my 1DX?
JA: What's the make/model of your camera? How old is it? What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: its a LP-E4N
JA: Anything else you want the camera expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Its a LP-E4N battery

Hi there and welcome

It will not cause any issues with the 1DX if it has been dried out completely, though of course the battery has a good chance it has shorted out and stopped working.

Though let me know how it functions please.
