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.

The phone to look at is amazing but the downside is the battery is absolutely rubbish a full charge only just manages 10 hours without use. Even overnight with no apps running the battery falls 15-20%.

Not happy with it at all and the contract is until 2016 :-(

Good Phone

Got this phone last week and I am a fan of Samsung phones. Good speed and good picture quality (although not HD). My only grip with Samsung phones isthe lack of software updates.

Samsung are very slow with these although there are current rumours that Android 4.4 is currently being rolled out, I expect it to be a few moths before its out for the s4 mini. All in all I'd give the phone a 7.5 out of 10.

Returned this phone next day

Very nice phone with lots of features. On the first day of ownership the phone froze several times, switched itself off and then back on again only to repeat the off on procedure several times before it started to work again.

About half an hour later it repeated this procedure. By the next day when it had frozen and switch itself off and on several times I returned the phone and exchanged it for a Nokia.
