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.

A must for LED TV

Most of the models of Samsung TV do not come with an inbuilt camera.. like 6800 that I own. This accessory is a must have if you want to make Skype calls sitting at the luxury of your couch.

You can see the other party big size on the TV screen and it is so much fun. The picture quality is great too! I would recommend this to any one who wants to make Skype calls!

Good accesorry to the smart TV

This was freebie included with my purchase of f5500 series TV and I must say it works like a charm. it adds function to my smart TV like Skype videocalling and Motion Gesture control.

Setup was easy, you just plug it in to the designated USB port and start using it. Resolution and picture quality is good.

Gesture Control - what is this?

It is great to talk to my family overseas from the TV in our living room but my wife and I are distracted by the way the camera zooms in and out thenselects one of us to the exclusion of the other.

Can we control this beast or does it have a mind of its own?

Mediocre camera, but it works with Samsung TVs

First off, this camera is WAY overpriced for what you get. But if you want to Skype with your TV or use the motion controls you don't really have anychoice do you? So here's the harsh reality - the Samsung TV is not a computer.

If it were, you could get a MUCH better camera for less $$$. I searched and searched and this one was the only model actually available for purchase. Pros: It works! Easy setup It works! I've been using to Skype with family around the country Wide angle lens Privacy cover Cons: weak microphones mediocre picture quality no settings to adjust mic sensitivity If you've got your couch set up at a good viewing distance for a 46" or larger set, the microphones built into this camera are barely going to pick up your voice unless you shout. When we Skype with our family, we have to move within 4 feet of the TV if we want to be heard. I wish there was a more competitive market for TV compatible cameras, because there would almost certainly be better options available if there were. But, this camera does work.
