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.

Amazing Performance and Great Looking even when it turned Off

Did the research. Opened the box. Read the directions. Hung it on the wall after about an hour of labor installing the bracket using the adapters forcurved TV’s which are included.

Looks great on or off. Picture is only surpassed by 4K. Couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

My Samsung UN55H8000

This is perfect TV. The image quality is great and the features are exceptional. My only request would be that Samsung supplies a manual remote in addition to the smart remote.

Smart remote takes some effort to get used to and for a senior citizen may not be the most user friendly. It requires a very steady hand to operate!. After doing extensive study to choose a once a lifetime TV. I am very glad the I chose this model.
