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.

Uncomfortable to wear and very few useful apps

The holes in the band are spaced too far apart, making it impossible to fit to my wrist. No calculator app? Really? Goes back to the store.

The Samsungs Galaxy Gear came with the Galaxy S4 i purchased and i was excited.¨ -Pros -It looks great (I have the jet black version) -Buit qualitywas great and felt great in hand.

-Pretty good battery life -Great to anwser to calls when your phone is not in reach to your hand -Good screen -Cons -Only 15 sec video recording -No internet -Not many apps/games -Couldnt change wallpaper I was kinda sad because there were not many apps or games and there was no WiFi to connect and that meant there were no internet connection :( Then i looked up on internet how to root it and it became an awesone almost full phone in my hand! I could connect to internet with the bluetooth with one of the many features the root included I can now talk with people in skype take 60sec long vidos, acces internet youtube, facebook, instagram etc. i could change my wallpaper and change themes, download any android game i wanted from play store (Gear actually is pretty powerful) and they ran really good for such small device. I wouldnt probably buy it as it is if your not going to root it if you do id absolutely recommend it to anybody! Sory about my bad english i tried my best

Awesome Device and Must Have

Just got a jet black gear and its amazing works great voice command is excellent. A must have item for anyone with Note 3 phone. I use it daily for work and the ability to use it away from my phone is a added bonus.

Colorado - Gender: - Age:
Need more apps

I like the quick read of texts and emails but we need a keyboard or T9 function on the watch for texting and typing. Also having Pandora or Google Music on the Gear would be amazing.

I love the battery life I get out of it. Great watch but could be way more powerful with some more work.
