Goods are imported from China via bonded warehouses based in Switzerland or Macedonia. No goods come via any EU country or via the Channel Islands. Goods are directly imported by customers from outside of the EU. For the avoidance of doubt, you (the customer) are and will remain the importer of all goods ordered by you and shipped to you.
The prices payable for goods as set out in the web site are exclusive of VAT and shipping/handling costs. Consignments imported by individuals to the UK of a value of £14.99 or under are relieved from import VAT and duties under current legislation. For goods priced at £15.00 and above imported by you into the UK you will be accountable for payment of vat and any duty on your import. For purchases by UK businesses, no evidence of payment of UK import VAT can be provided.Non-UK deliveries
If you are ordering goods for delivery outside of the UK, please note that your consignment may be subject to import VAT, duties and taxes, which are levied once the goods reach the country of destination. Most European Union member states allow goods valued at below €22.00 to be covered by the Items of Negligible Value Relief (INVR). However, EU member states reserve the right not to exercise this exemption and therefore we cannot guarantee this relief will always be available to you. Any such charges levied in relation to customs clearance must be borne by you. It is accepted by you that Duragadget Europe LTD has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. Duragadget Europe Limited recommends that you check with your local customs officials or post office for more information regarding importation taxes / duties that may be applicable to your on-line order. You will be the importer of the goods and responsible for any import VAT and duty that may be borne. In addition, any charges for import clearance will be borne by you, the customer.General
Please note that when shipping goods from Macedonia or from Zurich, Switzerland, cross border shipments may be subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. In respect of all goods dispatched to you to an address outside of Switzerland or Macdeonia, you are deemed to be the importer of the goods and must therefore comply with all the laws and regulations of the country into which the goods are being delivered.
For Christmas Deliveries, we recommend that you order by the 10th December. We will endeavour to dispatch all in stock orders within 24 hours, however we cannot guarantee delivery on or before the 24th December as the post may be delayed in your area.

In this page you can find all the information you need about recycling electrical or electronic equipment.
All Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) placed onto the market from January 2, 2007 must be marked with this symbol to indicate that it is covered by the WEEE Directive, the provisions of which require that producers or manufacturers of EEE become liable to pay for take-back treatment and recycling of end of life equipment (WEEE):
What is the WEEE Directive?
The production of electrical and electronic equipment is one of the fastest growing domains of manufacturing in the western world, and with broad consumer take-up of products in this area, there is also a mounting issue of waste. In June 2000, the European Commission put forward proposals to address this issue, and in December 2002, these were passed as the EU Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Directive. Such proposals were updated in the WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU.
For the UK, the WEEE Regulations were laid before Parliament on December 12, 2006. The main requirements and obligations on producers and distributors of Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) came into effect from July 1, 2007.
The major provisions of the WEEE Directive are:
- All manufacturers (or anyone else selling a product on the market in the EU) are liable to pay for take-back, treatment and recycling of end-of-life equipment
- Improve re-use/recycling of WEEE
- Ensure the separate collection of WEEE
- Inform the public about their role in dealing with WEEE
What are Duragadget's obligations according to the WEEE Directive?
As a distributor of EEE, Duragagdet Europe Limited must facilitate the take-back of household WEEE from UK consumers and has decided to fulfil its obligations in this area by joining the Government approved "Distributor Take-Back scheme" (DTS) set up by Valpak.
By joining the Valpak scheme, Duragadget is contributing to the establishment of a network of Designated Collection Facilities (DCF) where consumers may dispose of their WEEE free of charge for recycling and treatment in an ecologically sound manner.
In this way Duragadget can ensure that WEEE is disposed of by customers in a way that optimizes its re-use and recycling. The recycling and treatment of WEEE itself is part of the producer's obligation under the WEEE Directive. As a consequence of our membership of the Valpak scheme Duragadget will not accept returns of household WEEE itself and cannot accept WEEE returns for recycling, neither do we make arrangements for its collection.How does Duragadget ensure safe disposal of my WEEE?
Duragadget has decided to join the Distributor Take-Back scheme (DTS) commissioned by the British Retail Consortium. This scheme is run by Valpak who are officially approved by the Government. As part of this scheme we ask that you take your old piece of equipment to a designated collection facility (DCF) run by Valpak in your area. An online search facility to help you identify a DCF near you is available on the following website:
Are there any other ways of disposing of my old electronic equipment?<
If your old piece of electronic equipment is still in a good working condition or could be repaired for further use, please consider donating it to a charitable organisation or by giving it to someone else in need. By extending the lifetime of your old equipment you are also contributing to the efficient use of resources and avoiding additional waste.
Please note that from July 1, 2007, it'll be possible for you to dispose of your WEEE and ensure that it is recycled.
EEE may contain hazardous substances, which if exposed, may have a serious detrimental effect on the environment and human health. That is why all WEEE that you volunteer for recycling will be specifically collected and treated by designated local waste facility centres and by licensed WEEE compliance schemes. By ensuring that you dispose of your old electrical and electronic equipment according to the new WEEE legislation, you are helping to preserve our natural resources and protect human health.
Which products fall under the legislation and how do I recognise them?
The consumer will need to bring their used equipment to a waste facility centre, or to a distributor when buying new equipment, or to charity.
The WEEE directive divides Electronic and Electrical Equipment into ten categories:
- Category 1 - Large household appliances (fridges, cookers, microwaves, washing machines, etc.)
- Category 2 - Small household appliances (vacuum cleaners, clocks, toasters, etc.)

- Category 7 - Toys, leisure and sports equipment (electric trains, games consoles, exercise machines, etc.)
- Category 8 - Medical devices (analysers, dialysis machines, medical freezers, etc.)
- Category 9 - Monitoring and control equipment (smoke detectors, thermostats, scales, etc.)
- Category 10 - Automatic dispensers (hot drinks machines, sweet and chocolate bar dispensers, cash machines, etc.)
