Maintaining Water and
Dust Resistance
Charge the Battery
Your device is powered by a rechargeable, standard
Li-Ion battery. A USB charger (charging head and
USB cable) is included with the device for charging
the battery from any standard outlet.
Note: Water-resistant and dustproof based on
IP68 rating, which tests submersion up to 5.0 feet
for up to 30 minutes.
The battery comes partially charged. A fully
discharged battery requires up to four hours of
charge time. You can use the device while charging.
This device is rated IP68 using the Ingress
Protection rating system.
Your device has been tested in a controlled
environment and shown to be water and dust
resistant in certain circumstances (meets
requirements of classification IP68 as described
by the international standard IEC 60529 - Degrees
of Protection provided by Enclosures [IP Code];
test conditions: 15‑35°C, 86‑106 kPa, 5.0 feet, for
30 minutes). Despite this classification, your device
is not impervious to water damage in any situation. It
is important that all compartments are closed tightly.
Note: It is recommended you fully charge the battery
before using your device for the first time.
Note: For fastest charging times, use the Adaptive
Fast Charging charger that came with your device.
This charger provides faster charging only when
connected to devices that support Adaptive Fast
Charging.
Caution: Use only charging devices and batteries
approved by Samsung™. Samsung accessories
are designed to maximize battery life. Using other
accessories may invalidate your warranty and may
cause damage.
Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the
device.
•Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly
with a clean, soft cloth.
1. Insert the USB cable into the USB charger/
Accessory port.
•Do not expose the device to salt water or ionized
water, or to water over 5.0 feet deep for more
than 30 minutes. If your device is exposed to
fresh water, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft
cloth. If the device is exposed to any liquid other
than fresh water, rinse the device with fresh water
immediately and dry it thoroughly with a clean,
soft cloth. Failure to rinse the device in fresh water
and dry it as instructed may cause the device to
suffer from operability or cosmetic issues.
•Do not expose the device to water at high
pressure, such as ocean waves or a waterfall.
•If the device is dropped or receives an impact,
2. Connect the USB cable to the charging head,
and then plug the charging head into a standard
outlet.
•The touchscreen and other features may not work
3. Unplug the charging head from the outlet and
remove the USB cable from the device when
charging is complete.
