So me being the careless guy I am, accidentally spills some water on my phone while it was charging. It wasn't a lot of water and the phone seems okay so far (knocks on wood). I did spill a bit of water on the charger as well and I did dry it off before plugging it back in.

But half a hour later, I smell something burning and realized that the charger as well as the bottom of my phone (where the battery is?) were dangerously hot. I've since unplugged it but my question is, have I done significant damage to my battery?

Battery should be ok, your charging port could be damaged.

Yes, the part the charging port is on is fairly easy to replace. You should get a new charger too.

OK thanks! And just to make sure, this is the right part right?

That's the one. You'll need a few tools too, t5 screwdriver, small Phillips screwdriver and some plastic tool, guitar picks can work well

Right part, but you can get one off eBay for $12 with free shipping (USD, not sure about to Canada though).
