Best Practices For Battery Charging

The following guidelines can help you charge your battery properly and safely:

    • Verify that you are using the Samsung USB/charging cable and wall charger included with your device, and not third-party accessories.

    • Ensure the USB/charging cable is connected securely and is not being blocked by a cover or case.

    • Check whether a battery or charging indicator appears on the device's display when the USB/charging cable is plugged in.

    • Charge using a wall outlet, not a computer, for best results.

    • When the battery is fully charged, disconnect the device from the USB/charging cable.
