Dispose of used batteries
1. Gratuitous return of used batteries
Batteries should not be disposed off via the household bin collection. Legally, everybody is liable to return the batteries to guarantee a professional recycling process. One can return these via a communal collection point or return them to the resellers/ traders. Also we as a supplier of batteries with our equipment are firmly bound to do so, limited to the batteries that we use and sell with our range of products:

2. Meaning of the different battery symbols
Generally speaking any batteries are marked with a crossed out rubbish bin ( see below ). This symbol indicates that batteries do not belong into the household waste bin. Batteries which contain more than 0.0005% Mercury, more than 0.002% Cadmium or more than 0.004% Lead show the chemical signs for these 3 different heavy metals. Definitions: Hg for Mercury, Cd for Cadmium and Pb for Lead.
