Galaxy Tab E: How can I Monitor Battery Usage on my Samsung Galaxy Tab E?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Battery Usage

Your device has built-in battery management that lets you view and monitor which applications and features use the most battery power.

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

View Battery Status

1. From the Home screen, touch Apps Icon_Apps_8_1.png > Settings Icon_Settings_2_1.png > Battery Icon_Settings_Battery.png .

2. The Battery screen displays the percentage of battery power remaining and how long you might expect that power to last. It also displays the processes that have been using the battery power since the last Full charge and the percent used by each.


Note: Screen display may vary by user usage. 

3. Scroll to and touch a process or application to view its Use details.


4. Touch FORCE STOP to end the application.


Best Practices for Battery Charging

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

    • Verify that you are using the supplied Samsung USB/charging cable and not third-party accessories.
    • Ensure the USB/charging cable is connected securely and is not being blocked by a cover or case.
    • Make sure 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.
    • Disconnect the device from the USB/charging cable when the battery is fully charged.
