Battery information

Note according to battery law

Since our shipments may contain batteries and rechargeable batteries, we are required by the Battery Act (BattG) to inform you of the following:

Batteries and rechargeable batteries may not be disposed of in household waste, but you are legally obliged to return used batteries and rechargeable batteries. Used batteries may contain harmful substances that can damage the environment or your health if not stored or disposed of properly. However, batteries also contain important raw materials such as iron, zinc, manganese or nickel and can be recycled. You can return the batteries after use either to us or in the immediate vicinity (eg in stores or municipal collection points) free of charge. The return of batteries to retail outlets is limited to the usual quantities for end consumers and to those used batteries that the distributor carries or has carried as new batteries in its product range.

The sign with the crossed out garbage can means that you are not allowed to dispose batteries and accumulators in the household garbage. Below this sign you will also find the following symbols with the following meaning:

Pb: Battery contains lead
Cd: Battery contains cadmium
Hg: Battery contains mercury
