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:

  • 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.

This phone cannot make a cup of coffee.

This phone is fantastic. My mum is 79 and was having trouble seeing her phone so I bought her a Note. She adores it. So far she has watched tv in theiplayer in bed.

Listened to the music snd watched movies I loaded on it for her. Downloaded and played countless free games. She facebooks and skypes family and films and photo's too. Connecting on word games has been wonderful as She can always find someone to connect with day or night. Calling is so easy for her with one touch widget. A godsend in emergencies. No tech talk, just a simple review on the simplicity of use and the diversity of this wonderful phone.

This is a great phone/mini tablet

I have used this phone since July last year and I am extremely impressed with its performance. It only took a short while to get used to the size butits versatility far out weighs this.

It is very good for surfing the web and playing the odd game [I'm not a gamer]. it would be nice if we could upgrade to Jelly Bean as the Note 2 was introduced just after I got my Note. I would have no hesitation in recommending this phone.

Device that impressed me most of all!

Typing my review right from the device! Great phablet, intuitive and different! Just 4 stars for the performance, but it does a great job, considering it is a device from 2011! It can almost match all the quad cores, with newer chipsets! Would recommend it to anyone, the best buy I have ever made!
