Laptopbatteryone RoHS Certified
(Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
The Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment; commonly referred to as the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive or RoHS was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union. The RoHS directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and become law in each member state. This directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic e-waste.
Examples of product components containing restricted substances
RoHS restricted substances have been used in a broad array of consumer electronics products. Examples of leaded components include:
- paints and pigments
- PVC (vinyl) cables as a stabilizer (e.g. power cords, USB cables)
- printed circuit board finishes, leads, internal and external interconnects
- glass in television and photographic products (e.g. CRT television screens and camera lenses)
- metal parts
- lamps and bulbs
All Laptop Battery One batteries are free of lead, mercury, cadmium, PBBs, PBDE and are RoHS certified (RoHS is often referred to as the lead-free directive). This means the battery you purchase from us is manufactured without the use of dangerous and harmful chemicals. RoHS is often referred to as the lead-free directive, but it restricts the use of the following six substances:
- Lead (Pb)
- Mercury (Hg)
- Cadmium (Cd)
- Hexavalent chromium (Cr6+)
- Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
- Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)
(Note: PBB and PBDE are flame retardants used in several plastics
