Galaxy Buds - Charging tips and precautions (SM-R170)

From your early morning workout to a late night of studying, you want your earbuds' battery to last as long as you do. We'll give you the inside scoop on battery charging tips to get the most out of your battery, and precautions to prevent damage to your earbuds.

Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or earbuds.

Battery life

While all of the earbuds are built to last all day, charge and play times may vary based on device usage and conditions during use.

Battery life

Galaxy Buds give you up to 13 hours of play time (6 hours of charge in the earbuds and 7 hours in the case). Plus, charging for just 15 minutes will give you up to 1.7 hours of battery life. You can also charge your Galaxy Buds wirelessly.

Reduce battery consumption

Just by making a couple adjustments, you can conserve battery power on your earbuds. That way, they'll last when you really need them.

  • When you are not using the earbuds, keep them in the charged charging case.
  • Change the notification settings from the Galaxy Wearable app on the connected phone.
Battery charging tips and precautions
  • If there is any form of liquid, including sweat, on the charging terminals, corrosion may occur on the terminals. Clean the terminals before charging the battery.
  • 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.
  • While charging, the earbuds and the charging case may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the earbuds’ lifespan or performance. If the battery heats up more than usual, the charger may stop charging.
  • If the earbuds and the charging case are completely discharged, it may take a while for them to start charging.
  • If the earbuds and charging case are not charging properly, visit a local Samsung Service Center with your earbuds and charger.
  • Avoid bending the charger. Doing so may damage or reduce the lifespan of the charger. Never use a damaged charger.
