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.

The battery comes partially charged. You can use the device while charging.

Charge Using the AC Adapter (Charging Head)

It is recommended you fully charge the battery before using your device for the first time.

Note: For fastest charging times, use the Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger that came with your device. This charger provides faster charging only when connected to devices that support Adaptive Fast Charging.
