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.

Great phone

This phone has everything you want on there, that should be on a android phone. I don't know why other people say this is bad phone! it is brilliantto me.

The only bad thing about it is sometimes you have to touch an icon twice for it to recognise what you have touched, but that hardly ever happens.

nice but so frustrating

When you make a phone call the screen locks every 5 seconds roughly and you have to keep unlocking while entering the numbers eg when topping up or selecting options.

i googled it and many people have this problem. Screen is so small that when keyboard is on, its so easy to mistype, which is worse when the screen keeps locking. the lock is nothing to do with the time-out security lock which i adjusted to 5 minutes but still no hope. returning the product .
