Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Bad design (Rangehood not shielded from microwave)

This our second Samsung Microwave. SMH1816S - the buttons are on the right side and not on the door. Opened the unit to take a close look at the design they look similar to SMH9207.

I already installed it, I prey that it will last a while. If not goodbye to Samsung products. I have already analysed the our first microwave SMH9207 (lasted 2 - years) Why it died? --SE-- Error. Opened the microwave to see what is going on? The oil/dirt got inside microwave circuits. Lots of oil/dirt around the plug connecting door to the main unit. Verdict: This unit is not shielded from oil from Range hood fan exhaust. Oil and smoke gets everywhere killing the unit. It is just matter of time. Fan in good shape (very little noise). It is the unprotected circuit boards that dies on you. Every expensive to service or replace parts. BAD Design. I afraid that my new one will have the same fate.

Vent Fan could be more powerful

I chose this model as it offered a 400 CFM vent capacity at an affordable price. It did not meet my expectations: the 2 vent filters located on underside of microwave measure only 6 " x 6", too small for any effective suction power even on high level 4 mode.
