Default Batteries got wet...what to do...

So I left my batteries outside after flying today and my wife decides to turn on the sprinklers when she got home...Long story short, my batteries got soaked for about 15 minutes while the sprinklers ran...

Question is, are my batteries history? If they are, what's the safest way to get rid of a Lipo? What should I do? Thanks guys!

They are completely water proof. I left some older packs out side for 8 months.. under 5 months of deep snow.. then a spring of rain.. then I finally got around to tossing them.. I measured the voltage.. they were still at storage level.

Send them to me, I'll PM you my address. And change your call sign to "WannaBe3DButCannotBecauseHaveNoBatteries" .

Seriously, as Slyster said probably nothing's wrong with them. I dropped one in the pool last summer accidentally fully charged, fished it out, dried it on the sun for a few minutes and put it back into the heli.

Ops, I don't think you'll send them to me after all...
