    I had that same red x with the charger. It means the charger cable is bad. I called Samsung and they sent a replacement. They new one works fine.

    I've had that same issue with a cable I purchased but all was fine after it was replaced. Speaking of charging the Note, 2014: Although my battery life has been pretty good, when I do need to charge my tablet, it takes several hours to fully charge & it seems like forever if I'm using the tablet while its charging. Anyone else experiencing this?? Also, if anyone has any suggestions for a good name wall charger (adaptor) possibly one with a higher Amp for a quicker charge, I'd like to know what your using. Thanks guys (&gals!)

    If its the WiFi version, it will take around 5H to charge and if you using it while charging. It will take much longer and wont help if using others charger.
    Input is controlled by the device, so it wont get fried or damage the circuits and using ex. 3 amp. It dont charge the tablet at 3amp, all depends on the limit input of the device and also on the cable quality. So far I found the best charging cable (only for charging and no data) is able to output max around 1700mah and if using a 3amp charger. Output from charger will still be 1700mah max and its limit by the cable.
    Samsung usb cable that comes along with the tablet, is able to output around max 1700mah and somehow Samsung made the data working too.

    I plug my Tab in at 10pm at 22% and when I unplug it at 6am it's only at 58%. What seems to be the problem?

    There might be some app draining the battery. Check the battery in the settings menu at 6am (after the night charging) to see what's using it.

    I think I found the culprit. Exchange Services (Microsoft mail) was eating a lot of battery. I changed it from "push" to "check every 5 minutes" and the problem went away. Also, battery lasts a lot longer now. Last I looked I still had 74% after 5 hours.

    I had an issue with battery draining fast on my 2014 and long charge times then I shut off GPS, multi screen, etc. turned screen down to 40% and now get 10+ hours and to charge it faster, turn the tablet Off while charging. Twice as fast charging compared to just in sleep mode.

    I don't often get the problem with the red cross, but my charging just shuts off after a few minutes, particularly if I put it in standby mode. The lightning bolt just disappears. To date I haven't tried the included plug because it is a Hong Kong plug and I didn't want to bother with adapters, but I am using a 12W iPad charger, which is ample for the device, since it needs about 10.2W. It doesn't matter if I use the very short included cable or a long, thick (heavy duty, low resistance) micro-USB cable. I never had this problem with my nexus devices.

    I charge mine turned off. Usually at night when calling it a night. Charges up fine.

    I charge mine at night but while on. Not only do I use it as an alarm clock (one of several) but I use it to listen to music from my catalog while trying to get to sleep. By the time I wake up, it's at 100%.

    I like to use the USB wall charger from an iPad actually you can buy them from best buy and it puts out more and will charge faster.

    You are noticed, that the original Powercharger is about 5,3V and 2A? If you use a standard 5V Charger it take long time to charge or does´t work if the ampere is to less.
    I wanted to buy a solar-charger but it seems to be a problem.
