Battery ActInformation on the Battery Act (in accordance with EU Directive 2006/66/EC of 6 September 2006)
Instructions Pertaining § 18 Battery Act (BattG) of the German law
As our shipments may contain standard batteries as well as rechargeable batteries, we are obliged by the Battery Act (BattG) to draw your attention to the following:
Both batteries and rechargeable batteries must not be disposed of in domestic waste, instead you are legally responsible for the return of used and rechargeable batteries to ensure their proper disposal. Used batteries may contain harmful substances which, if not properly stored or disposed of, can damage the environment or your health. Batteries also contain important raw materials such as iron, zinc, manganese or nickel which can be recycled. You can dispose of used batteries at a municipal collection point or in local shops free of charge. As a distributor of batteries, we are also obligated to take back used batteries matching those we currently or have previously carried in our product range. Old batteries meeting the aforementioned requirements can therefore also be handed over free of charge to the following collection points or sent to us.
Our postal address is as follows:
Caseking GmbH, Logistikcenter, Gaußstr. 1, 10589 Berlin, Deutschland
Our shop is located at the same address in Berlin-Charlottenburg, and you can also hand in the aforementioned batteries and accumulators during opening hours (Mo - Fr 10:00 to 20:00).
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out waste bin. This symbol indicates that batteries must not be placed in household waste.
Batteries that exceed the legal limits in accordance with § 17 Abs. 3 BattG and contain more than 0.0005 mass percent mercury, more than 0.002 mass percent cadmium or more than 0.004 mass percent lead also have the chemical designations of the respective metals - in this case "Hg" stands for mercury, "Cd" for cadmium and "Pb" for lead.
