How do I Insert or Remove the battery cover and battery from my mobile device?

Follow the steps below to insert or remove the battery cover and battery from your device.

Charging a Battery

• Use only Samsung-approved batteries and chargers.
• Using other accessories may void your warranty.

  • You must fully charge the battery before using your mobile device for the first time. A discharged battery can fully recharge in approximately four hours.

  • Your device is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery. A USB Cable and Charging Head are included with your device for charging your battery.

  • Although you can use the phone while the battery is charging, doing so will require additional charging time.
