How to charge Samsung Galaxy Buds?

Last Update date : Nov 23. 2020

Before using your Samsung Galaxy Buds for the first time; or when it hasn't been used for an extended period of time, we recommend that you charge the Galaxy Buds fully.

 

The earbuds will power on while charging. When the battery is completely discharged, it needs to be charged for at least 10 minutes before it can start to work.

Check the direction of each earbud, insert them into the corresponding slots, and then connect the charger. The charging case, which has a built-in battery of 252 mAh, is charged along with the earbuds.


You can charge the earbuds by placing them into the charging case without connecting it to an electric socket.
