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.

The dismal battery life prevents you from enjoying the features of the phone.

I loved the larger size of the phone and found browsing and texting easier as a result. I think the predictive text function is awesome - it makes texting a lot quicker and it is easy to use.

The camer is excellent and produces great quality photos. Unfortunately, the absolutely dismal battery life of this device prevented me from enjoying the other features. The battery typically went from fully charged at 7am to empty at 5pm and as my signal at work is terrible, the phone was not even in use a lot of the time.

Still loving my Samsung Galaxy S4

It has been a year now and still loving my S4. Sure it doesnt have some nice features like finger print lock and its also not easy to locate your mobile, but I am still happy with it as a smartphone.

This product was "born" from the likes & features of the Samsung Galaxy S. Brilliant Smart Phone...

I had the opportunity to use the Samsung Galaxy S, which gave me the creeps since I was used to the traditional QWERTY keypad of the Nokia & Blackberry phones.

After a few days of working with a slide smart phone, I was hooked! The features on the then, slide smartphone were incredible, and moving forward with my choice and experience with the S4, I am loving it (excuse me Mac Donalds)... This phone boasts a whole lot more than just being smart, it takes smart to the next of mobile phone technology. Off course "Android" is my first love - choice and preference for Mobile Phone Devices&#59; I simply love the easy to use menus and navigation, as well as the mobile features in comparison to other smart phones. It is seamlessness with its usability and features are like a mini notebook pc. "I am truly loving it" and look even more forward to my next upgrade, the Galaxy S5!
