Best Practices For Battery Charging


The following guidelines can help you charge your battery properly and safely:


    • Verify that you are using the Samsung USB/charging cable and wall charger included with your device, and not third-party accessories.

    • Ensure the USB/charging cable is connected securely and is not being blocked by a cover or case.

    • Check whether a battery or charging indicator appears on the device's display when the USB/charging cable is plugged in.

    • Charge using a wall outlet, not a computer, for best results.

    • When the battery is fully charged, disconnect the device from the USB/charging cable.

Turn On Ultra Power Saving Mode


Use Ultra power saving mode to switch your device's screen to grayscale and turn off nonessential applications so you get the maximum battery life.

With Ultra power saving mode turned on, even if you're down to a 10% charge, you can receive calls and texts for up to 24 hours.*

*Based on laboratory testing. Battery power consumption depends on factors such as network configuration, wireless service provider, signal strength, operating temperature, features selected, vibrate mode, backlight settings, browser use, frequency of calls, and voice, data, and applications' usage patterns.
