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.

Just what I needed!

A tool vs a toy, this phone does just what I wanted - especially ease of use and synchronization via Windows 365 and Skydrive. Just the right physical dimensions , it is small enough for my (female) hands and to slip into pocket or purse yet the touchscreen keys seem larger (thus easier to accurately use) than many others.

I always thought that I'd never part from Blackberries, however the temptation to fully integrate with Windows O/S and MS exchange was just too great! My only disappointment - and I hope it is short-lived - is the wait for Windows 8.1. Can't wait to hear that the upgrade is available. Meanwhile, THANK YOU for creating exactly the right product for me!

Best Windows phone out there!

My needs for a smartphone were specific: I wanted the new Windows Phone 8 OS, SD expandable memory slot, removable battery, rear and front facing cameras, dual core, Camera flash, great audio output.

This was the phone for me that met and exceeded all my expectations. I've had it for over a year and never look back! My 5k+ mAh battery lasts 3 days on one charge with just texting and minimal browsing.

The design and features are great but it seems to always have a problem

I was so excited to get my new phone. I love the features and the design. It looks great and I love that I have windows on it. I have only had the phone for about 4 months and it already has problems.

It will not charge, which Is the worst and most annoying issue. I plug it in.... and nothing. I think there needs to be some work done to the current functionality of the phone before it's one that anyone should buy. Many of my friends have the same phone and they are all having issues. Yes some are minor but really there shouldn't be any this early on.
