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.

Easy to use right out of the box

Simple and easy to use. Took it to France, Spain and Italy. Worked perfect and took great video and still pictures. Even took some great shots in a fast moving train.

For its size it is a great tool for taking pictures.

A simple versitile camcorder

One of my smartest investments. I needed a small easy to use camcorder I could trust to be ready when I was. The image stability is so important in asmall cam to get those great shots.

And when necessary I can switch the cam from one hand to the other to keep getting the best angle on my subject. I love this little guy it really works.

The Q10 is a budget camcorder which is designed to be held in either hand - unlike most designs, which are impossible to use left-handed. The hand strap is just a thick rubbery band with an adjustable sliding buckle; it's very neat and when retracted...
