Basics
2 After fully charging, disconnect the device from the charger. First unplug the charger
from the device, and then unplug it from the electric socket.
To save energy, unplug the charger when not in use. The charger does not have a
power switch, so you must unplug the charger from the electric socket when not in
use to avoid wasting power. The charger should remain close to the electric socket
and easily accessible while charging.
Viewing the remaining charging time
While charging, open the Home screen and tap Apps → Settings → Battery.
The actual charging time may vary depending on the status of your device and the
charging conditions. The remaining charging time may not be displayed when you
charge the device in very cold or very hot conditions.

Basics
Battery charging tips and precautions
• When the battery power is low, the battery icon appears empty.
• If the battery is completely discharged, the device cannot be turned on immediately
when the charger is connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a few minutes
before turning on the device.
• If you use multiple apps at once, network apps, or apps that need a connection to
another device, the battery will drain quickly. To avoid disconnecting from the network
or losing power during a data transfer, always use these apps after fully charging the
battery.
• The device can be used while it is charging, but it may take longer to fully charge the
battery.
• If the device receives an unstable power supply while charging, the touchscreen may not
function. If this happens, unplug the charger from the device.
• While charging, the device and the charger may heat up. This is normal and should not
affect the device’s lifespan or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the
charger may stop charging.
• If the device is not charging properly, take the device and the charger to a Samsung
Service Centre.
Power saving mode
Save the battery power by limiting the device’s functions.
On the Home screen, tap Apps → Settings → Battery → Power saving mode, and then tap
the switch to activate it.
To automatically activate power saving mode when the remaining battery power reaches the
preset level, tap Start power saving and select an option.
