Default Question re: e-tank

If I have a piece that will need to go back into the e-tank tomorrow (hubby does not want to leave it going over night), should I take it out, rinse, and dry it in the oven a bit?

What would be the consequence of leaving it in the solution, but not plugged in?

Just wondering which is the best way to go.

Thanks for your help!
Deb

I just unplug the charger and leave them hanging in the tank. Nothing detrimental happens as far as I can tell.

I'll second Kevin. Just leave it in the tank.

Oops! Disregard that last message.... I meant to say I will unplug it and leave it in the tank =)

Thanks again!

I have read discussions that indicate you should not leave the charger clamps connected if you leave the piece hanging in the electrolyte. Unwanted things apparently can happen.

Will disconnect the charger clamps, to be safe.

Thanks!

I would think the worst that would happen would be a little rust...which the tank will remove once you fire it up again.
