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.

Rugged phone but sluggish and buggy O/S and performance

Example: while playing a puny game (tetris) I recieved a call and the phone froze up. The main problem with this phone is lack of RAM (316mb) and internal memory (165mb is just stupid!).

Without any apps runing, this phone takes 225Mb RAM out of 316Mb. With harldy any installed apps, this phone takes 120Mb out of the "available" 165Mb. Surfing the internet via Wifi or 3G is sloooooowwww. Google maps is painfully slow. Forget Facebook. I have only 2 or 3 apps downloaded to this phone (FB, Tetris, Zedge) and they can't be installed on the SD card... And now the bugs have started: bad reception, missied calls, often takes 10 seconds after a button press to actually call someone. When I go in the basement, still 1-2 bars reception, I will miss the call and not get notified before hours later; on top of this I have to reboot the phone because it won't perform outgoing calls after having lost reception...

I would not recommend this phone!

The Samsung Galaxy Rugby | Red and Black is literally the most problematic phone I have ever owned. The memory on it is virtually non-existent and the "added storage" option does not aid this issue as you cannot physically transfer files to the memory card.

Because of this, there are constant battles with Text memory being full that will make it so the phone will not receive any additional messages. On top of this issue, there is also an issue with the processing speed resulting in a 10 minute wait for YouTube videos to load. Trying to go online is basically a joke all in itself. Whether you're a beginner, or an expert with smartphones doesn't matter. The only way you should purchase this phone is if you'd like to be ripping your hair out.
