Returning of old Batteries

Battery Act (BattG)
The sale of all offered articles is expressly without batteries.
The bureaucratic effort for "putting batteries into circulation" is disproportionate, which is why we have decided to take this step.
To your understanding: There must be a monthly report, how many batteries were sold. Even if no batteries were sold.
If this report is forgotten, or not done in time, you will be fined 15€.
The effort is not justified for an average of 3 batteries sold per year.
Therefore devices with batteries (e.g. Scopes with illuminated reticle) are sold expressly WITHOUT batteries !

We ask for understanding.
