Ive been saving up the batteries i take off the Motherboards for a very long time now. Will Boardsort ever start buying those or can anyone let me know who does buy them?

Boardsort does not; and probably won’t in the future.
You can google sell watch batteries
But for me I just tape them up and dump them at the hardware store drop bin now.

The issue is transport.
There are many dozens of hundreds of buyers. But the lithium is federally regulated. It must ship ground period, now.
So you’re looking at parcel post or Fedex business ground. Etc. Where the transit times are up in the month range. And they’re not inexpensive to ship.
If you put the effort in you /could/ make money from them but it’s more trouble than I’m willing to deal with personally.

I'm still new to this whole e-scrapping thing. I had watched a video on taking apart a tv. (I was interested in the speakers.) Well the video suggested that I could sell the circuit boards, so I grabbed them while I was at it. Well, I did an internet search looking for places to sell circuit boards. I e-mailed several companies. Well there is one company that actually sent me a payout list that includes Silver Oxide Batteries - Watch at $29.33/lb. I personally wasn't interested in this company, because you had to have a certain number of pounds of an item before they would buy them. I'm not sure if I can post their name or not, because they are one of boardsort.com competitors. If lost says I can post their contact info, I will post their e-mail address. I guess I am just trying to say they do exist.

Motherboard batteries are not silver oxide. They are dry cell lithium. Market value today is a few pennies each in bulk properly taped.


Flyers, don’t post your own accessibility here. You know there’s spammers lurking.
Last thing you want is to end up with your phone on one of those lists. I speak from experience.
They drive you into the ground with their calling.
