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.

Good Phone, but Waterproofing compromised - Also extra batteries not available.

PROS: * It's been a good phone. * It has survived a couple of falls intact. * The battery last longer than the Battery on my old Galaxy II. CONS: *The mini USB port cover has warn out and won't remain in place - presumable because it has to be removed every day or two to recharge the phone.

This means the phone is no longer waterproof. * Spare batteries are not available - not that I can find anyway and I've been looking for a long time. so don't loose or damage the battery. * 1 GB of internal memory is not enough. * Only two stars for value because after just 6 months the waterproofing is compromised. I haven't used the ear jack but the cover on that doesn't look any better than the one on the USB port so wear would certainly be an issue for those that use it. More importantly I don't think the phone would be waterproof if the ear jack is in use - so no listening to music while running or walking or trekking in the rain and stay away from rivers and lakes etc. SUGGESTION: For a phone that is marketed as weatherproof and waterproof to 1 meter, the USB port cover is a bit cheap. More durable plugs are essential for phones of this type. It would be better to have external contacts and a recharger with pins and clamp to hold it in place while the phone charges - something like that used by some Suunto watches would do the job. The clamp and pins could even be provided on one end of USB/mini USB adaptor to keep recharging options open.

Great phone for outdoorsman but not as waterproof as i want it to be...

Some screws are placed very stupidy - beneath sealing rubber so water can break in the battery compartment, as happened in my case...Othervise very good GPS/GLONASS receiver!!!

Tough, cool and fun

I purchased this phone over a month ago(Red edition) and it continuously shocks me, it is rugged and withstands everything I've thrown at it so far,the storage isn't that bad and is expandable(it's 4gb by the way).

Thanks Samsung, amazing phone and highly recommended.
