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.

Paired for power and portability.

Paired for power and portability.

The Slim External DVD Writer makes a perfect match for your Samsung netbook. Because netbooks are designed for ultra-mobility, they aren’t typically equipped with Optical Disc Drives, which can potentially make booting from a CD or playing a DVD movie a problem. But with the lightweight, portable Optical Disc Drive in tow, you have the perfect on-the-go, stand-alone.
The most gorgeous 7 colours than ever.

The most gorgeous 7 colours than ever.

Samsung’s Slim External DVD Writer is as colourful as it is powerful. It comes in seven cool and vivid colours so you can reflect your own unique sense of style as well as make a perfect match (or mix and match if you prefer) with your Samsung mini or netbook PC. Whether you’re a traditionalist and take your technology in the usual silver, white or black or have an eye for the bold and beautiful with blue, sky blue, red or pink, the choice is all yours.

Great Samsung Product!

Easy to connect. Worked perfectly with my pc. I also love how portable it is..I've been able to carry it around with my laptop in the same bag with no problems.

Green Bay, WI - Gender: - Age:

Needed an external dvd-writer for my laptop after it's internal one died. This works perfectly. Good write speeds & better read speeds. Hope to see USB 3.

0 type external drives like this to come out eventually. Maybe even be Blu-ray writers then with improved speeds ;).
