    I think used can also be translated as DE USO depending on the context, of course.

    Hi Sandra,
    I agree because can be a context of selling used stuff by example "used cars"
    would be "autos/carros usados".The same in this case:
    Used Light Bulbs:ampolletas/bombillas usadas
    Used Electronics: material electrónico usado
    Used Mercury Devices: Dispositivos de mercurio usado
    Used Batteries: Baterías/pilas usadas
    That is different when I say: "the used light bulbs in this house were blue":
    "las ampolletas utilizadas en esta casa eran azules".
    And:"For sale used light bulbs"--> "se venden ampolletas usadas"

    Regards
    Mario

    Here in Argentina we say "lamparita" instead of "bombilla".

    I would say "dispositivos de mercurio", although, aren't these also batteries?
