    Question says it all. How often do you charge and do you/should you wait until it dies out before charging?

    Battery life on this tablet so far has been nothing short of awesome. I usually only need to charge it every other day when it gets to around 5-10%.


    Now if only smartphones could get battery life like this

    I agree but a 7000 mAh battery would make the GS3 pretty thick. I keep mine charged when not in use mainly out of habit more then necessity. Battery life is quite good especially on Sundays watching the NFL.

    I haven't used my tablet as much as I expected I would. That doesn't mean it isn't useful or can't do what I need it to do, but I use it for school and other meetings that require note taking. I use it for the occassional web browsing, and some games (NBA JAM). But I only need to charge mine about once a week. The battery life is amazing.

    I typically get about 7-9 hours each charge.

    WOW you really use yours lol

    I have had the tablet since 9/25 including that day to fully charge it today is my 3rd time and only because of the update i want it at full charge for it. I would say a full charge gets me 3 days. My wife has yet to use it so i'm sure when she does we will get less battery life.

    I charge it about once a week but I don't use it consistently everyday, some days it stays off.
    It is great battery life but I remember less drain on my original ipad when I used to use that for taking notes during a class.
    Definitely better than the Asus tf300 I had for about two weeks.

    I use mine everyday for reading, doing Bible study, taking notes, etc. I sometime play videos and music. I think I use it about 4 hours a day in which I charge it once every 2 days. Keep in mind that my battery never falls below 20% between charge. I bet I could get a few extra hours before each if I wanted to but I rather not since I use it often.

    How long does it take your tablet to charge with the original charger? Both my brother and I let the tablet charge ovetnight while it's switched off and in the morning sometimes it's still 80% charged or 99%, it never went up to a 100%. Is this normal?

    Not sure what kind of tablet you have but most require a larger voltage adapter. Make sure you are using the one that came with your device. If you are just plugging in to your phone adapter it will take much longer to charge.

    I've occasionally had mine go from 100% to 99% the second it's unplugged from being charged. I don't think it's a big deal. If you only turn off your screen, rather than a full power off, and have a game or something still running in the background, that may delay the charging. I've noticed that if I leave a game on pause, turn off the screen to charge it, it takes a very long time to reach full charge. I've gotten in the habit of doing a power off and overnight charge about every two days. I estimate I use my Note about 3 or 4 hrs a day, sometimes more on the weekends.

    I get 10 to 12 hours of use after charging. Turn it completely off when charging, and close apps using black button, not home button.

    I have the Galaxy Note 10.1 and yes to charge it I use the original charger that was in the package. I leave it to charge overnight, something like 10 hours. Is this normal?

    If it's not fully charged by morning then I would say you have a problem. You may want to try to drain it down until it turns off then recharge it again. Sometimes the battery needs to reset. You can also download a battery calibration app. It helps to reset the battery.

    Okay so it was able to charge after 4 hours? Or it drained in 4 hours?

    4 hours to charge it would be normal. But definitely run the calibration app after its at 100%

    I just got my note 10.1, what is the best way you recommend to root? Saw some forums and some users complained about s pen not working after the root.

    Do you wait until it dies or half way down? I just want to know because I usually do it half way but just in case you do it all the way down to 0%.

    Personally I wouldn't get it all the way down just in case you need to go some place, and if you let it die you will not have it to take with you if you're phone dies, and you need to call somebody to help you do something that you need to do.
