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.

Finally!

I bought a chrome book simply because I was no longer willing to invest too much money in a laptop that constantly needs repaired. I am absolutely thrilled! Great price and no repairs needed!It is super quick, no more long drawn out updating, gone are the loud leg burning fans, battery life is super long and keeps it's charging power.

It is light, slim and the key board is not mini. I have a feeling the extended warranty was a total waste of money. Finally! all the hassle has gone. Thank you :)

My go-to device for nearly all of my computing needs

Tell someone you have a Chromebook and the typical reaction is "What is a Chromebook?". My Samsung 303 Chromebook has become my go-to device ever since I began using it back in March.

It gets several hours of use every day. It has never failed me in any way. The battery life is terrific, better than any laptop I've used previously. The keyboard is terrific. Sure my Chromebook is largely made of plastic and it doesn't have a fancy metal body but so what. It's always ready to use and even if I do run the battery completely down a few minutes of charging will quickly give me an extra half-hour of use. My Chromebook has even survived a fall from a metre and a half, although there is certainly no claim in the specs that prompted me to check that; it was an accident. And even if it had been damaged it wouldn't overly concern me. Everything I create on the Chromebook is stored "in the cloud" so it's not as if I'd have lost any data. With my Chromebook I've not had to spend a single minute applying an update or a patch, and I've spent not a second installing or managing security software. That's the Chromebook way. Unpack your purchase, hit the power switch and a few seconds later you are working. That's it. No need to power it off when you are finished. Close the lid. When you need to use it next it will be ready within ten seconds after you open the lid. The Samsung 303 Chromebook is a fairly spartan device. Oh, did I mention that it runs in complete silence? There's no need for a fan. As for performance, don't let anyone tell you that you need a better processor or more RAM. I'm writing this review while having 42 tabs open. If what you do most with your time on a computer is Internet-based then the 303 is an inexpensive device that will get the job done for you.
