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 product is such a good phone!

I really love this phone ive just got it and im in love! The camera is amazing&i just really love it

London - Gender: - Age:
Lightweight with more then enough features

Now three years yet I haven't lost love for this phone. My children likes S4 but for me S2 with FM radio is essential.

East Coast - Gender: - Age:
Galaxy S2

Have now owned it for over 2 years, not a single failure, runs just as good as the day I bought it. Very satisfied with post purchase soft ware upgrades

- Gender: - Age:
Good hardware, Bad software

Ever since I bought my S2 mobile I had more problems then it worked. When I got it with Android 4.0.1 it was crashing for no aparent reason. Later Ihave upgraded to Android 4.

0.3 it stopped crashing but Bluetooth stack was crashing when connected to BT devices. Android 4.0.4 corrected the BT stack and it worked properly for once. (which proves the hardware is fine) Android 4.1.2 was rolled out and my phone is back to crashes for no reason. Also some Apps got unstable when used offline (AccuWeather and SCalendar) which crashed TouchWiz (Samsung skining process). To fix the problem I had to factory reset the device but backup and restore application (Samsung Kies) did not backup purchased applications (lost the purchase information) :-( . I have expected more.
