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.

Great way to update

I bought the evolution kit for my 2012 TV and I was worried it was going to be a waste of money. I would say no to that answer after having it for 6months.

I noticed a better picture, the new remote is a ton better if you use the voice controls and its faster with the apps to. I think these kits are a great idea to keep the TV's fresh and last a little longer. If you don't use the internet features or voice/motion stuff then I would pass it up, otherwise go for it.

    New from old - extends the real life of your TV!

    Want a new TV without the cost? The evolution kit is the way forward! simple to install, runs through all the additional updates it requires on it'sown, finished within 20 minutes very, very simple.

    You are met with the improved Smart Hub, a whole suite of improved functions, a better picture quality - especially if there is a lot of motion and a much faster response. All in all a wise investment,

    First Evolution Kit a welcomed upgrade for current 2012 TV Owners

    I purchased the evolution module for a PNE60E8000 to upgrade the CPU, Memory, Smart TV interface. The installation went well with two exceptions. Ittook some time to use a credit card to remove the cover of the new universal remote.

    When installing the dongle cable for the Ethernet adapter it’s best to install the cable on the kit before installing the kit on the TV. The dongle is on the bottom side of the kit and it’s difficult to install after the kit is attached to the TV. The programming of the setup went smoothly without any issues. It did take some time to download the current Firmware/Updates to the kit. When you use a function for the first time it may download additional updates. I was surprised to see you can now control the cable box with the 2013 universal remote this is a nice feature. Also you can control the cable box from the original TV 2012 remote (not the 2012 universal one) and the optional Samsung external keyboard. The integration with the new keyboard is tighter and welcomed. The updated web browser is also welcomed. The white 2012 arrow was replaced with a blue arrow with the evolution kit. You can now see the arrow from a distance from the screen and using the optional external keyboard is now more useful and I will now use the TV for more surfing as a result of the evolution kit. The only issue I have is I cannot figure out how to log-in to the Pandora app. When I start the app I am never given a change to log-in and I receive the message invalid log-in and or password. The price should be lower if Samsung would wants to upgrade every time a new Evolution Kit comes out (yearly?).
