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.

wow

Thats all I can say the Samsung galxy tab has it all, and I have seen and used some tablets. I decided to get the larger one of the two, and im gladI did.

The screen is crystle clear, nice and bright. The unit itself feels nice and solid, thans to the face facing speakers the sound is great. The operating system is easy to use, and there is no end of apps and games to download. Its a great priced tablet and worth every penny. Plug in some head phones an you can experience even better sound, great for watching movies or playing music. I for one cannot find any bad points when it comes to this tablet. I would say that it is the best on the market.

So much better than an iPad

Its great and does everything I need of a tablet (unlike the iPad which I have now given to my son). I like it that its operating system is the sameas my phone.

The mini sd card is useful. If charging could be via the same mini USB as a phone then it would be perfect.

Excellent... but...

great tablet, light, easy to use, as fast as needed, and lots of good features... BUT...that Samsung connector needs special plugs for everything. Amini USB and HDMI would make it perfect.

Many cheaper tablets (and this is FAR from the cheapest) manage this..why not Samsung?
