Water damaged, Plugged in it shows the dead battery screen but shows like 40%+ but won't turn on?

I dropped my HTC Desire 610 in the toilet (clean water luckily) and put it in rice and left it for 2 days, tried to charge it and it came up with the dead battery screen (yay! Screen is working!) but now won't turn on. The dead battery screen is showing 47% now but after a while the screen goes off and won't turn back on, unless I unplug it and plug it back in, then it goes dead battery for a few seconds before showing the %. Is it dead? Or am I just impatient? Any help? I prised the back off to dry the battery, but haven't removed it as it's held in with wires :/ I really don't want to have to claim off my insurance if I don't have to! Any views?
