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.

Great camera for taking photos on safaris

A fellow tourist who was on a safari with me in South AFrica had this camera and most of us on the safari jeep spotted the wild animals, especially the lions, much better on her camera that by simple eyesight.

I knew then that I had to have this same camera. On my way back to Europe I found it in the duty free store at Amsterdam airport. I didn t even bother to check the price, but went right ahead and purchased it. That was in November 2013 and I have taken thousands of digital photos since then. The camera catches everyone´s eye and all are impressed by the quality of the photos, the excellent 21x zoom and all the other features. My only complaint is that the photos I send from the camera by gmail never seem to reach their destinations and I still have not figured out why. I am still discovering uses of this fantastic camera. I carry it with me constantly, as I never know when a great shot can be taken and this camera takes far better photos than my Sansung Grand Neo phone (but both products merit an A***!!)
