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.

Not at all Happy

Ive had this phone now for a good 6 months. Ive found that it drops calls. It hangs consistently when using apps like FB or email. It won't delete the emails from the server.

It periodically says no network card found then resets itself looking for service and when I press dial, it dials another number. Not the number I pressed dial for. All in all not impressed.

Problems began 1 day after warranty expired

Served the purpose very well. Quite disappointed to discover hands free requires "data" connection. 1 day after warranty expired phone began discharging battery even when phone turned off.

Turned it off for the night and next morning battery is so dead it almost won't recharge. Now I must leave it plugged in all the time so it isn't much of a "mobile" phone now. Originally bought car window mount which won't fit any other phone so I am stuck with this albatross. Also had to buy a bluetooth ear piece as maximum volume is quite poor. Also dims itself then I can't see the screen outdoors (not even to find and adjust brightness control). Also occasionally does weird things but seems to fix those itself.
