  • Charging the battery

    Charge the battery before using it for the first time or when it has been unused for extended periods.

    Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables. Unapproved chargers or cables can cause the battery to explode or damage the device.

    • When the battery power is low, the battery icon appears empty.
    • If the battery is completely discharged, the device cannot be turned on immediately when the charger is connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a few minutes before turning on the device.
    • If you use multiple apps at once, network apps, or apps that need a connection to another device, the battery will drain quickly. To avoid disconnecting from the network or losing power during a data transfer, always use these apps after fully charging the battery.
    • Using a power source other than the USB power adaptor, such as a computer, may result in a slower charging speed due to a lower electric current.

    Connect the USB cable to the USB power adaptor, and then plug the end of the USB cable into the multipurpose jack.

    Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.

    • The device can be used while it is charging, but it may take longer to fully charge the battery.
    • If the device receives an unstable power supply while charging, the touchscreen may not function. If this happens, unplug the charger from the device.
    • While charging, the device and the charger may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the device’s lifespan or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the charger may stop charging.
    • If the device is not charging properly, take the device and the charger to a Samsung Service Centre.

    After fully charging, disconnect the device from the charger. First unplug the charger from the device, and then unplug it from the electric socket.

    To save energy, unplug the charger when not in use. The charger does not have a power switch, so you must unplug the charger from the electric socket when not in use to avoid wasting power. The charger should remain close to the electric socket and easily accessible while charging.

    Your device provides various options that help you conserve battery power.
