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.

Has never let me down except for having to re set the battery once and a while.

I use this phone for Cell Use and tethering for email! Since I am in a remote area the 3 G is my only option for email. I do use the photo ability once and a while, however not often.

Frankly I do not use the phone to it's maximum capability and rely on a portable computer tethered to it !

Exceeded my expectation

Having been a BB user for many years, moving to an android was not easy to make. I was hesitant and unwilling at first. The Samsung Galaxy S made that decision a little easier to make.

I was surprised to find a better phone that could do a lot more than what I was used to with my BB! This one's a keeper!

Outstanding Phone

This is my 5th data based phone i have owned, it will be my last brand i need to own. I have tried alot of other manufacturers before i settled on the Galaxy series, I had numerious problems with all the other brands but have yet to have ANY problems with this new phone.

I have had it now for over 2yrs and have never had any issues. I find this phone reliable, easy to use with a great interface and functional set-up. I can honestly say i will stick with the Galaxy series from now on, It is amost time for me to upgrade and am looking forward to the Galaxy S4 or next generation. Looking forward to many more years of enjoyment.

My first smartphone and what a great choice. Does more than I expected.

This phone has all the features I have required to date. Plays apps without issue and is easy to carry with me wherever I go. The screen is bright and large.

Keeps me in touch and up to date. It will be a challenge deciding what to replace it with.
