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.

Excellent ! Fixing The Annoying Camera Button. Do It Yourself Modification :)

I already submitted a review... but this is further to that review. Some people complain about the camera button on the left side flashing pictures all the time on the Samsung Rugby II.

I had no need for that button, so this is what I did. I carefully pried it out of the phone using a very thin object... a very small thin precision screwdriver would work. You will see a protruding plastic "plunger" on the other side of the button that goes into a hole and activates the camera. I cut about half of it off. Then, using a suitable, very strong waterproof glue for rubber and plastics, I put just enough glue to glue it back into place. I uses toothpick to apply the glue carefully, then carefully inserted the button back into place and held it there tight until the glue set. You could also put a small object on it and use elastic bands to hold it in place until the glue sets... Only do this if you can live without the function of that button. But it solved the problem, and I don't miss the use of it. You can still take photos using the on-screen control. You don't lose the use of your camera phone. It's glued solidly back into place, and looks like it was made that way. I did this alteration a year and a half ago. Very happy with it. :) Just be careful doing this modification. You ae willing to accept any risks to the phone doing this. But it worked perfectly for me. :)

The good the bad and the ugly

I work in heavy industrial setting and this phone is perfect for this type of setting. It is very very durable I have dropped it on concrete many times (more than 10) with the only damage being a slight crack on the speaker area.

My 2 year old has also gotten a hold of the phone many a time and any parent will know how hard a 2 year old is on anything. Also there is no way to pocket dial that I have discovered. The battery last me between 4 and 8 days depending on usage. The battery lock is very good for keeping the battery sim card and micro SD disk dry. Even with a few drops in puddles, baby drool, rain, and the odd splash of water there is no water damage. However there are some cons. First is the photo button. The button on is on the side of the phone and is activated whenever it is pushed. I have had my phone for about 8 months and have had almost 900 photos taken, aprox 800 of these are of the inside of my pocket. Also it has a small memory so every 1 to 2 months I am forced to take the battery out of it to reset the memory. Although this is not a big deal it is an annoyance due to the battery lock. If all you want is a simple talk and text phone that will stand up to all your toughest engagements this is the phone for you. If you however want to do anything other than talk and text do not buy this phone. Overall this is a good quality phone but don't expect any bells or whistles.
