What is a refurbished tablet?

Refurbished tablets are pre-owned devices that have been tested, restored, cleaned and passed an intensive quality check. Generally, they are as good as new tablets, and they are sold at great discounts.

Tablets’ entrance into the technology market was a revolution. They are the perfect medium for users. Compared with laptops, tablets are more portable and usually more interactive. While still being bigger and often more practical to use than a smartphone. Moreover, the best-refurbished tablets are the ideal portable devices for work and leisure. Tablets are small enough for travelling with ease, yet large enough to comfortably web browse or view documents.

Why buy a second-hand tablet?

Refurbished tablets might be the perfect choice for those who care about the environment. Making new technology needs more chemicals from the urban mines. On the other hand, electronic waste is very varied in nature and is often mixed with other types of waste. Their composition varies from little part to another and this is very harmful to the land and the environment. By choosing refurbished products, the need for making new ones reduces, and less amount of e-waste and toxins enter the natural cycle.

Moreover, buying a refurbished tablet is a great way to save money because you are buying something you really want at a lower price. A refurbished tablet costs less than a new one, but you are still getting a quality product in perfect working order.

Remember when you go secondhand shopping, look for products that are “refurbished” or “certified pre-owned.” It means they are like new (inspected and restored to their original condition). In most cases, these are products that are returned exactly after selling. This does not mean the item was damaged; there could have been a minor defect or scar. Sometimes, the device was not even used after the package was opened.

Points you need to consider before buying second-hand or refurbished tablets:

Physical properties: Look at the physical properties of the tablet, and what the weight and dimensions are. Are you looking for something that is ultra-portable or something that is big and durable?

Technical specifications: Check out the technical specifications; decide what storage is right for you, and if having HD graphics is important.

Data options: There are tablets that run on just Wi-Fi, while others can run both Wi-Fi and cellular data. Remember you have to pay more for the cellular-enabled models, as well as paying monthly for the cellular carrier data charges, but this gives you the freedom to use your device online, wherever you are, without having to find Wi-Fi.

Price: It is important to compare the price of the refurbished items with their original retail price. Once you have done this, you can better determine whether buying a specific tablet refurbished is worth saving the money. 

Battery: No Matter What, the battery will eventually die after about 3 to 5 years. Running your new tech is going to be hard without power. That’s why it is important to verify that the refurbished tablet you are getting actually comes with a battery. Batteries can be expensive, and so some consumers try to find models that do not come with batteries.

Warranty: Depending on where you get it from, your refurbished item may or may not have some kind of warranty. Faircado recommends you buy refurbished tablets that come with a warranty, because if the refurbisher is confident in offering a warranty, then you can be confident that the product is of good quality.
