    Some old electronics are worth buying and others aren't.

    The reason (which you seem to have) and the condition of the item(s) to be bought
    affect the real value of any used equipment.


    If it works right and reliably, that's very different from being in "not working but repairable" condition.
    Repairs can be costly --- in some cases two or three times what the item will be worth once it has been made functional.

    If it's any worse than that, you should buy it only if you know you can use it as a source of parts for other units,
    which means you are already capable of doing repairs on that type of thing.


    So, you have to decide for yourself about any such acquisition.

  • Can i get arrested for throwing rechargable batteries or something rechargable in the trash?

    Best answer: We don't know how many you're talking about and we don't know where you are.

    Can you? Yes - especially it it means LOTS of batteries (hundreds or thousands).

    If it is one or two, not likely. The right thing to do is properly dispose of them... electronics waste or battery recycle.

  • RFID Reader for Apartment?

    I will be moving into an apartment with 3 people and the bedrooms are not locked. I wanted to add a RFID reader to my bedroom door, is there something that exists that does not require lots of wiring ? Maybe a battery powered electric strike unit or something? Or do you have a better idea.

  • What is more dangerous to electric appliances?ex:if a device is rated for 12v 2A input,what causes the device to fail?120v or 20A current?

    Best answer: Voltage. The device will only draw the current it requires, so if connected to a supply which is capable of supplying 20A it will still only draw up to a maximum of 2A. Similarly, if using the 2A supply it does not mean the device draws 2A. It just means that it never draws more than 2A so that’s all the supply... show more
    Best answer: Voltage. The device will only draw the current it requires, so if connected to a supply which is capable of supplying 20A it will still only draw up to a maximum of 2A.

    Similarly, if using the 2A supply it does not mean the device draws 2A. It just means that it never draws more than 2A so that’s all the supply has to be built to provide.

    But the voltage is the killer as that is fixed. Send 120v through a 12v circuit and the device will instantly overheat and whichever part of the circuit is weakest will melt or explode first.

  • Why did my batteries burn out so fast?

    Best answer: Several points: Some cells are bad when new. This is a lot more common than people realize. The more cells, the greater the chance that one will be a dud.

    Best answer: Several points:


    Some cells are bad when new.
    This is a lot more common than people realize.

    The more cells, the greater the chance that one will be a dud.


    The light could have a defect that allows current to flow when it is "off".
    This should be covered by the warranty.


    Swinging the light around should have No effect on cell life,
    but if you do it a lot and with considerable strength,
    who knows what result it could produce?



    Mag Instrument is a decent company, but I have given up on buying their products new.
    They cost too much for the problems caused by their design faults, particularly in switches.

    Sometimes a good deal can be found in an odd location,
    such as the 2 D cell LED light I bought for $2.92 at a thrift shop.
