More than two thirds of people are holding onto old tech including smartphones, laptops and watches that could be cashed in to help pay for energy bills. The average British household has up to 60 unused items with a potential trade-in value of as much as £7,750.

As the cost of living crisis continues to leave people out of pocket, new research by OKdo technology has found that many people have smartphones, tablets and smartwatches tucked away in cupboards, attics and basements which they could turn into cash.

While people will get more for their old technology if it’s working, it doesn’t lose its value entirely if it needs repairing.
