Deionized water but it's harder to find so Distilled water do the job and is very easy to find.

Personally I'd go with distilled as opposed to de-ionized.... Distilling removes impurities while AFAIK all de-ionizing does is affect the charge.... snake oil if you ask me. :)

Water will ionize as soon as it contacts air anyways. Using deionized water would be waste.

Why are you using aurora? It isn't meant to be used for more than a couple of days at the most.

I've heard different from other boards they can last to 6 months
