Monitor and Extend Battery Life on Galaxy Tab E

Does your battery always seem to drain quickly, but can't figure out why? We’ve got the answer for you. There's a way to monitor and extend the battery life on your Galaxy Tab E. Follow along to find out how to get the most from your battery power.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Monitor Battery Usage

Want to know just how much battery you’re using? You can view the estimated battery life based on how much you’ve used over the past week, and closely monitor how much battery your apps are eating up.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select Battery.

  3. To view your battery usage, touch BATTERY USAGE.

  4. On this page, you can see the estimated battery life and breakdown of how much battery is being consumed by recently used apps.

Screen Timeout

Sometimes your tablet just needs to take a timeout. Just kidding, but you can shorten your tablet’s screen timeout to save battery life. Read on to learn how to set screen timeout.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select Screen timeout.
