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.

SURVIVED BEING ON DROPPED OUT OF A WINDOW ON THE MOTORWAY!

I was a passenger in a car taking a photo on the motorway, thought id get a clearer a view with the window down as I turned to press the window down,the wind took my phone out of the window at 60/70MPH!! we pulled over on a hard shoulder and thankfully, it wasnt busy so my partner ran up the motorway and got my phone which was in two parts, the case and the phone its self&#59; minus the battery! The only damage to the phone was a scuff on the corner of the case and no battery!! Couldnt believe it! no scratches, or dents! Soo happy with this phone, i could have upgraded to the S5 because there was no more actives in the store however, I really want to have the Active.

so i just brought another battery for it and it still works perfectly:)

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active review

Like the standard Samsung Galaxy S4, the S4 Active packs a 5-inch, Full HD display and a ridiculously powerful quad-core chip. Better yet, it's fully waterproof, meaning you never need fear taking a call in the rain. If you've ever wanted to take your...

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is a water-resistant version of the Galaxy S4, but does it make a better purchase than its brother?
