New reports find the average lifespan of a flat panel TV to be 10 years

tvsA U.K. based non-profit group called WRAP conducted a study on 400 flat panel TVs that measured their life span. They also measured average laptop life spans in this study. Flat panel TVs lasted an average of 10 years, while laptops came in at a close second at 9.6 years. This information is crucial to calculate, as recyclers must be able to prepare for the estimated 470 million flat panel TVs to enter the E-waste stream. Some of these TVs are being closely monitored by this group because they contain mercury from cold cathode fluorescent lamps. According to WRAP the industry could potentially face challenges with this type of material.
