After doing some computer work on low powered computers I decided to look into some older electronic equipment, like old mobile phones, tablet devices and MP3 players (iPods or other players).
Well a the old phones generally work, and can be charged, so the batteries are not quite dead. I will keep two or three for spares, and an older iPhone (32GB) can still be used as an MP3 player. The others are give-aways, as they are old and not very useful for Internet purposes.
Two of the old tablets remained on the boot screen, and I could not recover functions after a few hours. I discard them, and will probably give them to someone who wants to try getting them running. Probably a corrupted system, but I could not restore it, after a search on the Net.
Other old and very slow tablets will likely be given away, if someone wants to play with them, newer ones will probably be set up for different purposes, e.g. a picture viewer, or monitoring often visited websites.
