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.

Most cost

Easy to set up, connects easily. Ideal for those who want a tool to work, is not to play. Better cost/benefit.

Worst phone have ever had

Battery runs down so quickly. On a call you get cut off if you move your head.

Avoid

I replaced an ageing smartphone for this one ... wish I hadn't. Very, very poor product - it's obviously designed for children - if you are over 12 years old, and know what a smart phone should do, then avoid this.

Internet very slow (on the rare occasions you actually get connected). Strange ring tones. In fact, the whole phone is strange, seems like it was designed in the 80's.

So Slow,disappointing performance

never having had an android i was quite looking forward to recieving it...yes its designed ok & appears solid with alot of stuff going on ..But my god its frustratingly slow & slugish.

.i'm sure previous models of the ace are a bit more lively...i could go on..but what for? ah well it'll do untill an upgrade.
