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.

Chromebook by Google

The Google Chromebook is all it says it is, however there are many programs that are not compatible with Google's operating system on the Chromebook.Also the keyboard doesn't have a back-light.

Just get one!

I debated with myself do I try one of these or stick with Windows. I am glad I took the plunge. The first thing you notice is the speed. After usingthis, windows seems so slow.

It boots in seconds, is the easiest laptop you will ever set up and runs at light speed. Forget all the hype about "it won't run MS Office" or other windows programs. If like me, you work out how much time you actually spend "not" browsing, you realise that you don't really need them anyway. Google docs and sheets takes care of the office, cloud print means you can print off just about anything, you can view photo's and listen to music offline, and choose from thousands of apps to make your laptop do just about anything. I use this as my main PC now because I couldn't stand the drop in speed of anything else. Don't just think about one of these, Just get one!

Pretty good for almost all everyday jobs

Chromebook is exactly what I needed for 95% of my everyday non-work stuff. Full sized keyboard, responsive track-pad. Fast. Boots up in less than 6 secs.

Good sound & battery life.
