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.

Better Than Advertised

Samsung advertises a 6 hour battery life for this machine. That´s what I get if I use it at max brightness. At 50% brightness, which in my opinion isjust fine, it´s closer to 7:30.

Pages load really fast. Even Youtube is relatively fast.

A really great product for the price.

My only gripe with the machine is the plastic body scratches REALLY easily,I took it out of the box and put it on to the table only to find a massivescratch appear on the underside when I picked it up.

It also slows up a bit when multi tasking (ei, watching a movie in one window, and browsing in another) but that's not really a big deal since it isn't sold as a POWER machine. It does what it is supposed to GREAT, I love Chrome OS and use it more than my iPad, it helps me view the Internet the way it is supposed to be viewed, another plus is I don't have to worry about getting viruses either.

I have the lot, Mac Air, Windows 8, even an Ubuntu laptop, Ipad, Galaxy SIII, the whole kit. This is the best yet.

I collect new technology, use it in the real world, day to day, swapping devices every few weeks or so. This is the best so far. Google\Samsung keepthem coming please.

While I saw a prototype unit a couple of years ago at Google, earlier versions of Chromebooks have passed me by. Rather different to a PC notebook and also different from a Google Tablet a Chromebook is a category of its own.

Samsung Chromebook Series 3 Review

Google's Chromebooks received a lukewarm reception on release last year. Can Samsung's refreshed model bring the concept to the boil?

Samsung Chromebook (XE303C12, Wi-Fi)

Buying a budget-priced computing device is a whole lot more complicated than it used to be, especially if you need one with an actual, physical keyboard. Low-cost netbooks are on the outs in favor of tablets like the Google Nexus 7 by Asus and...
