    After trying to find an answer elsewhere I decided to sign up here as you guys and gals seem to know ALOT about the Note 10.1

    How long should I charge the device the first time?
    Also
    Can I turn it on and play while it is receiving it's first charge.

    Thanks for you help.

    I couldn't help myself - I turned it on right away and it was about 1/2 charged.

    You CAN use it while it is charging, but the cable is pretty short.

    I didn't do anything special re: charging; I just charged it up to 100% and plugged it in again a few days later when it told me it was down to about 20%. I get 2-3 days on it with moderate use throughout the day. (I've had it since October). The only big battery drain I've really seen was while traveling - watching 3+ hours of videos nonstop on a plane dropped my battery to about 50%. I leave the WiFi on all the time. LOVE LOVE LOVE this device! Hope you will too!
