Gear 360: Can I charge the device whilst recording?

Last modified : Sep 03. 2018
Gear 360

The Samsung Gear 360 cannot be charged while recording a video, using the time lapse feature, or using the viewfinder remotely on the connected mobile device. This is so the device can write better images/videos and maintain system stability. 


While charging, the Samsung Gear 360 and the charger may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the Samsung Gear 360’s lifespan or performance. If the battery temperature rises above a certain level, battery charging will be stopped. 


Note: Using a power source other than the charger, such as a computer, may result in a slower charging speed due to a lower electric current. Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables.
