[Android™ 4.4, KitKat] How do I install the Battery Cover and Battery for my Samsung Galaxy S® 4?

You must fully charge the battery before using your device for the first time. A discharged battery can fully recharge in about four hours.

  • Charging the Battery

    Your device is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. The travel charger used to charge the battery is included with your device. Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.

    Although you can use the device while the battery is charging, doing so will require additional charging time.

  • Installing the Battery

    Note: Make sure the battery is properly installed before turning on the device.

    1. Remove the back cover by inserting a fingernail or pointed object into the slot on the side of your device.
    2. Lift the cover up and away from the device.
    3. Insert the battery into the opening on the back of the device, making sure the contacts align (1). Gently press down to secure the battery (2).
    4. Replace the back cover.
    5. Press along the edge of the back cover until you have a secure seal and it clicks into place.
    6. Plug the USB connector into the charger/accessory jack on the bottom of your device.
    7. Plug the AC adapter into an electrical outlet. It may be necessary to connect the USB cable to the charging head before you can plug it into an electrical outlet. Fully charging a battery may take up to four hours.
