Charge Your Galaxy TabPro S

Charge the battery before using it for the first time or when it has been unused for extended period of time.

Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables. Samsung accessories are designed to maximize battery life. Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty and may cause damage.

Charging the Battery

Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.

  1. Connect the USB cable to the USB power adapter.

       

       

  2. Then plug the end of the USB cable into the USB charger/Accessory port.

       

       

  3. Plug the USB power adapter into an electric socket.

       

  4. After fully charging, disconnect the device from the charger. First unplug the charger from the device, and then unplug it from the electric socket.

    Failure to unplug the wall charger before you remove the battery can cause damage to the device.

Viewing the Remaining Charging Time

  1. While charging, select Start from the taskbar.

       

       

  2. Select Settings.

       

       

  3. Select Settings.

       

       

  4. Select Battery Saver.

       

       

  5. View Battery level (charging) & Estimated time to full charge.

    The actual charging time may vary depending on the status of your device and the charging conditions. The remaining charging time may not display when you charge the device in very cold or very hot conditions.

Reducing the Battery consumption

Your device provides various options that help you conserve battery power.

  • When you are not using the device, switch to sleep mode by pressing the Power key.

       

  • Activate battery saver mode.

       

  • Close unnecessary apps.

       

  • Deactivate the Bluetooth feature when not in use.

       

  • Deactivate the Wi-Fi feature when not in use.

       

  • Deactivate auto-syncing of apps.

       

  • Decrease the backlight time.

       

  • Decrease the screen brightness.

Battery Charging Tips and Precautions

  • When the battery power is low, the battery icon appears empty.

       

  • If the battery is completely discharged, the device cannot be turned on immediately when the charger is connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a few minutes before turning on the device.

       

  • If you use multiple apps at once, network apps, or apps that need a connection to another device, the battery will drain quickly. To avoid losing power during a data transfer, always use these apps after fully charging the battery.

       

  • Using a power source other than the USB power adapter, such as a computer, may result in a slower charging speed due to a lower electric current.

       

  • The device can be used while it is charging, but it may take longer to fully charge the battery.

       

  • If the device receives an unstable power supply while charging, the touchscreen may not function. If this happens, unplug the charger from the device.

       

  • While charging, the device and the charger may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the device’s lifespan or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the charger may stop charging.

       

  • If the device is not charging properly, take the device and the charger to a Samsung Service Center.

Battery Saver

Save the battery power by limiting the device’s functions.

  1. On the taskbar, select Start.

       

       

  2. Select Settings.

       

       

  3. Select System.

       

       

  4. Select Battery saver.

       

       

  5. Then select the On/Off switch under Battery saver.
    • To automatically activate battery saver mode when the remaining battery power reaches the preset level, select Battery saver settings and select an option.
