Founded by Reuben Zielinski and Joel Trusty in Indianapolis in 2013, Redux uses a patented technique to remove moisture from personal electronic devices with a vacuum drying process that reduces the evaporating point of water so that all moisture is removed quickly, completely and at a safe temperature. Redux provides a real-time measure of moisture removed during the drying process and reports the total amount upon completion. Nearly 2.2 million customers have prepaid subscriptions to Redux drying services to protect their devices and data against water damage. This technique has been effectively used for wet cell phones, hearing instruments, cameras, tablets, MP3 players and other devices.
