Wet battery compartment??

Has anyone had an issue with the battery compartment being wet when you remove the batteries? I have 4 Roku’s. So far the 2 that needed batteries replaced have had wet battery compartments. The remotes just sit in the sofa or bar when not in use. No liquids are near them. If it were battery acid that is usually crusty when they leak. These are clear like water. I can’t for the life of me figure out why these remotes are wet inside. #remote #wetbatteries

Hi @MeliP,

Thanks for the post.

It's possible that moisture could have entered the battery compartment of your Roku device. To prevent this from happening in the future, make sure to keep the device in a dry and cool place. You may also want to inspect the batteries for any signs of leakage or corrosion.

We hope it helps!

Warm Regards,

Same here. Original supplied batteries leak less than 3 months after purchase
