Notes on the Battery Act
The following information is aimed at those who use batteries or products with built-in devices and who no longer sell them in the form they are delivered to (end users):
- Take-back of used batteries free of charge
Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obliged to return used batteries so that proper disposal can be guaranteed. You can dispose of used batteries at a municipal collection point or in local stores. As a distributor of batteries, we are obliged to take back used batteries, whereby our obligation to take back batteries is limited to used batteries of the type that we have or have had as new batteries in our range, as well as the amount that end users usually get rid of. You can therefore either send used batteries back to us with sufficient postage or return them free of charge to our shipping warehouse at the following address:

- Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed out garbage can (see below). This symbol indicates that batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. Contaminated batteries are specially marked with chemical symbols. For batteries that contain more than 0.0005 percent mercury, more than 0.002 percent cadmium or more than 0.004 percent lead, there is the chemical name of the pollutant used under the garbage can symbol - "Cd" stands for cadmium, "Pb "stands for lead, and" Hg "for mercury.
You have the option of reviewing this information again in the accompanying documents of the goods shipment or in the manufacturer's operating instructions.
