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.

There’s no stopping this cleaning machine

There’s no stopping this cleaning machine
An open doorway would stop most cleaning robots in their tracks — but it won’t hold up the NaviBot S. When the unit encounters a doorsill, its Smooth Climbing Wheel enables increased leverage and allows unhampered movement across thresholds, over cords, or over any other obstacles on the floor, up to 1.5cm thick.

It sweeps up even more in its path

It sweeps up even more in its path
The NaviBot S is designed to clean your floors better and in less time than ever before. It has a 200mm wide brush that’s an impressive 25% wider than on previous models. This allows pickup of crumbs, pet hair, and dust with fewer sweeping paths resulting in a faster, more efficient overall cleaning performance.

Daily or weekly - set its schedule to suit yours

Daily or weekly - set its schedule to suit yours
Schedule your cleaning for convenience and time saving! Set the NaviBot S to vacuum when you’re at work, out shopping, or spending an afternoon with the family. Just enter the time and day — it’s that simple. You can program a weekly schedule or, if you want to alternate floors, a daily one. Now you’ll know your home is getting cleaned even when you’re not there.

It quietly goes about its way

It quietly goes about its way
While the NaviBot S is vacuuming, you can chat on the phone, read a book or watch television — in the same room! The NaviBot S features Samsung’s Air Path Technology, which reduces irritating noise and makes it one of the quietest vacuum cleaners around.
Faster and smoother motion for better cleaning

Faster and smoother motion for better cleaning

Faster acceleration. Tighter turns. Not a racecar, but the NaviBot S. Not only does it run circles around other cleaning robots, it features the Visionary Mapping™ System. With twelve sensors, two CPU chips, and an onboard camera, the NaviBot S charts the most efficient route around your house. And when its battery starts to run low, it returns to its docking station to recharge, then races back to pick up cleaning where it left off.
Its slim design fits under furniture and cleans hard-to-reach areas

Its slim design fits under furniture and cleans hard-to-reach areas

With its sleek, sophisticated design, you won’t mind having the NaviBot S cleaning robot plainly in view. But at only 80mm thick, it’s also intended to work out of sight — under couches, beds and other areas you typically have trouble reaching. Without compromising on power, the NaviBot S is 11% slimmer than its predecessor, allowing it to easily manoeuvre and clean under furniture - and to excel in performance as well as appearance.
Its Dust Awareness Sensor gives you on-the-spot cleaning

Its Dust Awareness Sensor gives you on-the-spot cleaning

The NaviBot S features an optical sensor that can actually see and react to dust. When it reaches a heavily-soiled area and senses there is more dust, crumbs or pet hair than can be cleaned in one pass, it shifts modes and performs a more concentrated clean until the area is dirt-free. Also, the NaviBot S automatically transitions from hardwood floors to carpeting, to ensure optimal cleaning on every surface.
Virtual Guard™

Virtual Guard™

Virtual Guard™ prevents the NaviBot-S from entering a vulnerable area — where there’s a crawling baby, a dog’s water bowl, or a precious antique vase perched on an end table. Just the push of a button sets up a virtual fence that the NaviBot-S won’t cross, protecting the space.
Cliff Sensor

Cliff Sensor

There’s no need to block off your staircase to prevent the NaviBot-S from tumbling down. The cleaning robot has three Cliff Sensors that can detect the edges of steps and other deep areas, so it steers away from potential falls -- preventing damage to itself or breakage in your home.
