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.

It's like a feature bonanza!

The best thing about this camera is that it's so fun to take pictures! If what you're looking for is a fun, friendly camera to help with your sociable lifestyle, then this is definitely the camera for you - it's so compact, lightweight, straightforward, yet very much able to take high quality images that are definitely worth sharing.

It's great to use when it's dark, too, so it's ideal for going out. I got this for Christmas, but I already have a DSLR, so for me, it was great to play around with features and the display at the front is fantastic! It's much easier to use when going out and it is just generally great. The downsides for me are that it's slow at taking the pictures and processing them and the battery life isn't that great. But that's it! And for a point-and-shoot, I'd say it's the best out right now! (Jan 2013) What a fabulous present :)

Brilliant Camera

Got this camera for Christmas and it is brilliant. The picture quality is great and it contains loads of features (My favorite feature is where I cantake a picture on my camera from my iPod!) It is very easy to setup and from what I have seen so far it also has a great battery life.

Brilliant camera, highly recommended, a must buy.
