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.

A Closer Look

  • Everything looks super-sharp, no matter the source.

    Through a UHD up-scaling process, the UHD picture engine converts Full HD, HD and lower resolution sources to nearly-UHD clarity.

    A Closer Look
  • Stay in touch.

    A built-in camera pops up for easy Skype™ sessions with family and friends, or for controlling your TV with gestures. When it's not in use, the camera stays hidden to keep the beautiful, clean curve of your TV.

    A Closer Look
  • With its screen floating above a metal plate, this TV frames whatever you're watching so beautifully, it's as if nothing else exists.

    A Closer Look
  • It's like you're there.

    With ultra-high-definition sharpness, colour accuracy and picture clarity, absolutely nothing comes between you and the most mind-blowingly vivid viewing experience.

    A Closer Look
  • The screen is uniformly curved.

    The screen is curved at just the right angle to provide the optimal viewing distance in your living room.
