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.

The best camera I've ever owned!

I bought this camera to take on a road trip across America filming a TV series. The pictures have been amazing and the practicality of the phone enables me to use it as a tablet, upload snaps straight to the internet and keep on top of all my emails etc.

I love the onboard editing suites too. Everyone I've traveled with has commented on how amazing the camera is. I can't recommend it enough!

The envy of everyone who sees it!

Awesome camera! Vivid pictures, great zoom, connectivity is easy and quick and the display is large and beautiful. The on the spot editing gives youso many choices to create so many different effects.

The HD video aspects are no different.

Good Camera but tricky in other areas

Given me as a Chrictmas present. Awesome capabilities, but simply a very good camera. The other features, whilst very wideranging bring with them difficulties in handling or accessing.

The Touch screen size makes for an awesome viewfinder and the 21x Optical Zoom is a real treat. Used as a datascreen it taxes my Old eyes. I've losy count of the number of times I've inadvertently opened another App when all I'm trying to do is hold the device. Pity that the Flash isn't built in, rather than a pop-up facility via a side button. Looks very vulnerable when popped out? Thing that really confuses is that as soon as you turn it on, for ANY purpose, the telescopic lens shoots out. Great if you want the Camera function but for anything else can tend to disturb your grip. Overall a great Camera and very useful as a Tablet substitute, but perhaps a bit too far ?
