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.

Out of Box Failure

I was looking forward to enhanced performance by adding the SEK-1000 to my UN65ES8000 LED/LCD TV but was bitterly disappointed to find that the TV would not recognize the device.

I tried reinstalling it a couple of times and gave up after the third try. The SEK-1000 is now being returned as dead on arrival for a full refund.

This is the Year 2015

Where is the upgrade for the TV's SMART EVOLUTION Samsung is way behind in this product. I have the S 7500 and still no upgrade. This TV was supposed to keep up with newer TV's guess they didn't say that they keep up but only a year behind on everything.

Easy to installed tricky to set up with my ES8000 tv.

Evolution kit seemed easy enough to install, but once I did my tv would not connect via wifi. Luckily I have my router next to my tv and was able tohard wire via a ethernet cable.

I tried reseting tv, unplugging power, restarting setup process, and none would allow the tv to connect via wifi. Overall the Smart tv functions work smoother and quicker. It also has a newer look to the Smart hub. Kit included a new remote that's a bit small for my big hands, I wish it was an inch or two longer and a bit wider.

Great way to update

I bought the evolution kit for my 2012 TV and I was worried it was going to be a waste of money. I would say no to that answer after having it for 6months.

I noticed a better picture, the new remote is a ton better if you use the voice controls and its faster with the apps to. I think these kits are a great idea to keep the TV's fresh and last a little longer. If you don't use the internet features or voice/motion stuff then I would pass it up, otherwise go for it.
