    Default Bought a different charger now my tablet is taking to long to charge

    I bought myself a Samsung Galaxy tab 2 10.1 but it didn't come with a charger.
    I have been charging it with the charger from my tab 2 7.0, but now that I sold it I bought a different charger for my 10.1 and now its taking long to charge is it because its not Samsung or because the volts don't configure the capacity of my table?... I don't know what to do and the place were I bought the charger wont give me the money back... only an exchange..

    Buy one made for your tablet?

    It's probably the voltage or maybe it's a defective charger

    yeah I was thinking about that...
    I borrowed my friends charger because we have the same one and it charged faster.
    Im thinking that its both the charger and voltage..

    You probably bought one that only outputs 1 amp. Needs to be either 2 or 2.1 amps.

    Yea, just look at the tiny print on the charger - it's the amps (or mili-amps, mA) that you're looking at, not volts they will all have the same voltage output. Just remember that 1000mA = 1 amp, etc. Sometimes it's in amps, sometimes in mA.

    Almost any charger will work, but the lower mA ones will just charge slower, as you found out. Sometimes the slowness is not a big deal, sometimes it is. For me, it really doesn't matter because I almost always charge over night, so I just use any generic USB-type charger I have in the house.

    Find out what mA an OEM charger has and just find any generic charger that matches that or gets close. I.E. if the OEM charger is 2 amps (2000 mA), 1.8 amps (1800 mA) will probably be satisfactory, probably even 1.5 amps. It's all a matter of what you need.

    I certainly wouldn't bother buying a "brand name" charger if a similar generic, $5 is available.

    I have a Galaxy 3 tablet and it takes FOREVER to charge even with the charger that came with it. It was down to about 30% this morning, and It just finished charging about 3.5 hours later! I will try powering it completely off before charging next time to see if that makes a difference.

    I'm in the same boat, I just got a Galaxy 3 Tablet w/o a charger and have about a zillion old phone chargers laying around that are .55 & .7 amps and they barely turned the tablet on after an hour of charging. The good news: I live close to a Value Village that have a bucket load of chargers. So thanks for letting me know to look for a 2 amp.
