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.

Not great, lack of updates.

I got this on the 23rd of Dec 2010 and it was a huge disappointment, i stuck with it tho and Samsung went on to dump it and ignore it for the Tab 2,thanks :)

Liverpool UK - Gender: - Age:
The software on this tablet does not let you access some sections of the memory.

I was really pleased with this tablet until recently as I cant now even turn it on and Carphone Warehouse won't help me as I never took out the helpsupport with them.

I have tried to use the Kies software today but the tablet does not even show either on the computer or in the Kies software. For the last few weeks I have been getting messages saying empty personal memory. The internal SD and the external sd cards do not have much on them. So as from today this Samsung Tablet is not worth a carrot.. Samsung I need your help please...

MERTHYR TYDFIL - Gender: - Age:

An excellent tablet. Smooth and easy to use. Wireless connection via WIFI does not stay on for a long time. Keep disconnecting from time to time. Kies software needs a lot of remodeling.

Slow and frustrating to use. Samsung needs to look into this software. It uses a lot of memory and does not sync flawlessly with device. All together I am pleased with my new toy, SAMSUNG TABLET P-1000. Highly recommended. A *************

Swansea, Wales, UK. - Gender: - Age:
Amazing product. I use it for everything. Beats the iPad any day.

This product is amazing. It runs so well, has a mass of options and pretty much does everything I need. I use it at work, at university and for homelife.

I have watched movies on it, entertained the family on long journeys, typed letters and essays, browsed the Internet and read many e-books with it. Its uses are endless, it is slick, high quality, amazing display and a device that always gets people asking questions. I just wish the first question they asked wasn't always "is that an iPad?" One hardcore iPad user spoke to me about how much better their iPad was than my Tab. I demonstrated all the great apps and features to their surprise, then just on cue, I get a telephone call through on it. "Can't do that on an iPad" I proudly said, slipping the Tab into my back pocket while I picked the call up on my bluetooth headset. I love it and thoroughly recommend it; even at a year old.
