Power saving modes on your Galaxy tablet

Battery usage screen on Tab S6

When you're using apps or playing games on your tablet, its battery can deplete fast. But if you use the preloaded Power saving modes and charge it properly, your tablet's battery will last much longer. Now you can finish that final episode without a cliffhanger.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and model.

Monitor battery usage

Your battery seems to be draining faster than usual, and you're wondering what you're doing differently. No worries, you can view your battery usage.

Navigate to Settings, and then tap Device care. Tap Battery, and then tap Battery usage. Your estimated past and predicted usage battery usage will be displayed. The estimated amount of remaining battery will also be displayed.

Power saving modes

Sometimes you need to make it through only one hour with a low battery, and other times, you need to make it through the whole day. You can choose between two Power saving modes that can help extend your battery life at critical times.

Navigate to Settings tap Device care, and then tap Battery. Tap Power mode and then select your desired power mode.

Battery basics

Using the right charging 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 not being blocked by your tablet's cover or case.

  • Use the outlet on your wall instead of your computer or other devices for the best results.

  • Disconnect your tablet from the USB/charging cable once the battery is fully charged.
