Battery corrossion tip!!

Like many others ive read about, my hero 6 leaked water inside the compartment and caused corrossion on the battery and inside the compartment. It was completely dead. After researching i took a cotton swab and pure white vinegar and gently wiped away the corrossion completely.. wah la! She is back up and running! You should buy a new battery to be safe but they arent expensive.
