Recycling Samsung Laptop Batteries

The average laptop rechargeable battery will last anywhere from two to four years. The amount of time that a Samsung laptop battery lasts will depend on the use and care of both the machine and the batteries. There are some ways that you can extend the life of your battery. It always helps to not run programs that you do not need. Many laptop users do not think about the amount of windows that they have open, but are not using, and how this takes away from the lifespan of the battery. Defragging your laptop on a regular basis also helps as does cleaning the battery with a cotton swab and a dab of rubbing alcohol on the area of connection. However, even if you do extend it life somewhat, there will come a day when it simply cannot be charged any longer. It is at this time that all laptop users are urged to be responsible and recycle and not to toss the battery out in the trash.

When a battery is tossed in the trash, it creates hazardous material. When recycled, it is used to create other things, most commonly components from old batteries can be used to create new ones. When a produce is made from recycled materials that already exist, it always saves energy costs in comparison to manufacturing something from scratch.

Recycling Samsung laptop batteries is very easy and will not take up a lot of time. In return, you are playing an important role to keep the Earth clean. While it is tempting to just toss that battery in the trash, almost just as easy is to bring it to a recycling facilities.

To make it easy for the average consumer to recycle, many facilities have been set up as places where you can drop off your battery and they take care of the rest. Most of the time, these drop off centers are located in easy accessible places such as your local post office, book store, food store and other.

This is a nationwide plan called Call2Recycle. This program is helping hundreds of thousands of people lend a hand to keep environment clean by recycling their Samsung laptop batteries in the easiest way possible. Since this program has been incorporated, more than forty million pounds of batteries have been recycled.

There is over fifty thousand drop off locations globally. The objective is to put together drop off center which will be as simple and easy as feasible. If you are not sure if there is such a place close to where you are, a quick search on the web will be able to let you know where you can go, and often you will find that it is along one of your normal routes when running errands. Alternatively, your local city hall or other such local government should be able to present you with a list of places.

    Wow I was hoping to find useful data on laptop batteries in this blog, that means discharge curves under various conditions and things like: why does a laptop battery need 7 connectors? What is the energy density and cycle life of the laptop batteries found in major brands?

    Advertising gimmicky solar chargers with statements like “will keep your most power hungry device juiced” is disingenuous, really… a 10w panel will do that?!? no it won’t. This looks like an environmentalist blog masquerading as a laptop battery blog.

    You can recycle your entire laptop computer as well. Companies like Gazelle will pay you to send them your used electronics. They turn around and resell it or recycle it, depending on its value. It’s a great way to keep your laptops and such out of the landfills.
