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 samsung ultrabook is great but has some down fulls

bought my ultrabook to use for university but it won't connect to the university server as it is running microsoft system. I have to send all my workto my fathers computer by e-mail and then send it to uni from there,which defeats the object.

CHROME OS is an experiment..

choose wisely, it is not 100 percent, I get errors dns errors on my network. No fixes have been applied. I am patient and have good hopes. I hope itgets fixed.

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.
