The IRS allows you to deduct the Fair Market Value (FMV) of the device at the time of donation on Line 17 of Form 1040 Schedule A. If you have multiple donated devices that collectively total greater than $500, you additionally need to complete and attach Form 8283 to Form 1040. Note that electronics must be in "good" condition to qualify for the deduction.
