Using the right charing practices can help ensure that your tablet's battery lasts and lasts for years to come. Follow these practices to charge your battery properly and safely:

  • Only use Samsung supplied USB/charging cables and avoid third-party accessories.
  • Ensure the USB/charging cable is connected securely and is not being blocked by your tablet's cover or case.
  • Use the outlet on your wall instead of your computer for best results.
  • Disconnect your tablet from the USB/charging cable once the battery is fully charged.
