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.

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!

Perfect for anyone on the Go.

The Samsung Chromebook is perfect for anyone on the go, having used a traditional laptop and tablets the Chromebook is the only device that can be used daily as a replacement for my Windows laptop.

The best features are the near instant boot up (beat that Windows) and always on connectivity using the built-in SIM card, meaning I can work anywhere, anytime. I was so impressed with Chrome that only a week after purchase I trasnfered my buisness email to Google Apps and the intigration is seemless and perfect when working with the Chromebook. I fully recomend this for anyone on the go who wants the benefits of a traditional laptop without the restrictions of a Windows machine.

Makes traditional PCs redundant in 99% of use cases

I've used one for a month now and I hate having to use my Windows-based laptops now. Where the Chromebook is fast, light and elegant, my Windows laptops are heavy, sluggish, unresponsive and deeply frustrating.

The main hurdle facing prospective purchasers is the idea of life without local applications. Using a Chromebook shows you that this hurdle is an illusion - unless you have a highly specialised use case, you simply won't miss anything. Instead, you'll gain an extremely fast, responsive and stable interface to a device that is light and lasts all day on a single battery charge. I expected this to be a novel science experiment that would, in time, be relegated to some younger relative with less demanding computing needs. Instead, I now look for ways to migrate all of my activities to the Chromebook and away from my Windows laptops.
