If your phone just died, it isn't the end of the world. You can charge it back to full power in no time by using the Adaptive Fast Charger. This chargers comes with your phone, and it provides an extremely fast charging time.

Important: Use only charging devices and batteries approved by Samsung. Samsung accessories are designed for your phone and to maximize battery life. Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty and cause damage.

When you plug in a fast charger, your phone automatically turns Fast cable charging on. This feature should be on by default, here's how to turn it on manually:

From Settings, swipe to and tap Device care. Tap Battery and then tap More Options. Tap Settings, and then tap the slider next to Fast cable charging.

Charging the phone

Before you start charging, make sure you are using the correct charger for your phone. When you're ready, all it takes is three easy steps to get your phone charging at top speed.

Insert the USB cable into the USB port on your phone. Make sure the USB cable is connected to the charging adaptor, and then plug the adaptor into a standard outlet. For the fastest charging time, plug the charger directly into an outlet. Plugging the USB cable into a computer or another device will lengthen the charging time.

When your phone is done charging, unplug the charger from the phone and the adaptor from the wall.

If the Adaptive Fast Charger doesn't work, request service.
