Amazing what a bit of lateral thinking can do.

Clearly very popular with over 2 million views.

Re: What to do with old laptop(s) ? ?

By the time my laptops become "unusable", they literally are unusable, dead, broken, worn out, etc., about the most I use the leftovers from their dead corpses is the battery cells, turning them into what I nickname "lithium bombs" (because the way I wire & tape them together maked them look a bit suspect!!!), the most recent of which being made from two Samsung netbook battery packs that had reached a "Nope! Not charging any more" state, cells are fine though, but I've assembled them into a nice box with charge inputs, a voltage display, and some DC outputs (not quite finished wiring those in), and it should have a pretty decent capacity for 12v applications... 😁
