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.

My First Tablet - A Winner

I am age 67 and not very tech savvy. But the super-helpful young woman at the Samsung desk at Best Buy took her time to get me started and answer myquestions.

She transferred all my apps and settings from my Samsung smartphone. I love all features of the tablet. And it has been pretty easy to figure out many of the features on my own. I don't do any gaming or movies and the battery life between charges is outstanding. Very satisfied with the tablet. Would gladly recommend.

Stopped charging and now I have a brick

It all went well for 3 monthe then, all of a sudden, the battery charging went crazy, regardless of the charger used: it tells you that is 45% charged and in a few minutes it reports 100%; ofcourse, as soon as you try to use it the battery is back to 45% and draining fast.

Or it will not charge at all. Or if plugged, even if in airplane mode and being used only for reading offline, the battery goes down or, if lucky, remains the same, without ever charging. And then, sometimes, depending on my luck, it charges, but the number shown is never to be trusted: it can go down in 2 or 3 minutes from 100 to 50%. All in all, I am very disappointed.

This is a great product

My husband gave it to me as anniversary gift and I love it ( my husband too). It is very useful specially when I am traveling and have to wait for long periods of time without nothing to do.

I get my e-mails, watch TV, read my books and listen my favorite music. I think it is a wonderful tool for people that do not need to pay for an internet connection and works everywhere Wi-Fi is available. Thanks Samsung for this great product.
