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.

Why do my Samsung Phones only last 14 months??

This is my second phone in the last 2 and a half years. My first Samsung was Galaxy SII and that one broke within 13 months, speakers stopped working, so I could not here incoming text, phone calls or voices.

Now this phone broke, it froze and just wouldn't work again and it is a Samung Note II. I have several Samsung products including TVs and Home Theatres, but since this incident I will no longer purchase any more products. They break right after the warranty is over so it has been 1500.00 in just over 2 years. I use to be very loyal and would recommend the brand to anyone and everyone. But now I am just disappointed. Quality needs to be better, I wish I didn't feel this way and maybe they were just duds of a phone, but two in a row sure can ruin a reputation without any support back from the Manufacturer.

I'm still learning to use the phone

I find some things awkward when browsing the internet. There is no back arrow and closing windows ia not vy easy. The Google voice input is not veryintuitive but I guess its a learning thing.

It seems like a lot of work to have to refer to a 167 page book to use it.
