Why doesn't my Samsung Galaxy Tab charge when it's connected to computer?

Last Update date : 2015.01.07



You cannot charge your Galaxy Tab through a data cable connection to a computer, as you might for a smartphone, because tablet batteries require more power to charge than can be provided through a computer's USB socket. 


Please charge your tablet with the main charger supplied with it.
