How do I charge the battery and view the battery power for my Galaxy Tab A?
Your device is powered by a rechargeable, standard Li-Ion battery. A Wall/USB Charger (charging head and USB cable) is included with the device for charging the battery from any standard outlet.
The battery comes partially charged. A fully discharged battery requires up to four hours of charge time. You can use the device while charging.
Important: Use only Samsung-approved charging devices and batteries. Samsung accessories are designed to maximize battery life. Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty and may cause damage.
Charge the Battery
Important: Failure to unplug the wall charger before you remove the battery can cause damage to the device.
When to Charge the Battery
When the battery is weak and only a few minutes of operation remain, the device sounds a warning tone at regular intervals.
In this condition, your device conserves its remaining battery power by dimming the screen.
When the battery level becomes too low, the device automatically turns off.
► For a quick check of your battery level, view the battery charge indicator located in the upperright corner of your device’s display. A solid color ( ) indicates a full charge.
You can also choose to display a percentage value. Viewing a percentage value can provide a better idea of the remaining charge on the battery.
