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 disposal 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.

Slim bezel, anti-reflective display

Slim bezel, anti-reflective display

The anti-reflective 15.6” HD LED display produces images with the sharpest details and boldest colours. Its matt surface has less mirror effect, so you can use it for longer, even outdoors, without your eyes getting tired. And with a slim bezel that's as thin as a finger it’s also much smaller and lighter to carry.
Anti-fingerprint finish – Quality made to last

Anti-fingerprint finish – Quality made to last

Life on the move is challenging, so notebooks can easily become scratched even after a small amount of use. To protect against the risk of everyday bumps and knocks a robust Samsung Duracase casing, with a special scratch-resistant and anti-fingerprint surface, will keep your notebook looking stylish and like new for longer.

BatteryLife Plus – Anti-aging battery technology

Samsung's intelligent battery charging uses anti-aging technology so the battery keeps 80% of its original capacity for up to 1,000 recharges – that’s up to 3x longer than a typical battery, which is normally just over 300 cycles. Making our batteries more economical and environmentally friendly as fewer batteries need to be replaced over the lifecycle.
