Any interest in older 3-5 megapixel point and shoots?

Recently, for fun, I bought a box lot of 50 digital point and shoots on e-Bay. Working condition unknown, they all came dirty and crammed in a box. Most of them work, and the price per camera comes out to under $2. But the batteries, if you don't have them, can set you back $15-$20 for a charger and battery. It's a whole range of stuff -- Canon, Nikon, Vivitar, Sony, Olympus, Casio, etc. Most are in the 3-5 megapixel range. I've had a lot of fun fooling with them and getting them cleaned and working, but I don't suspect there's much of a market for them. Has anyone noticed any resurgence in interest in these as there has been with other dated tech, or are they destined to be e-waste?
