    After my next charge, it only reached 95%. Sent tablet back to Amazon today.

    I may get the same model again. It doesn't seem this is a widespread problem. Also considering the Tab S 8.4.

    Glad to hear it didn't turn into a major problem. Assuming it's software, hopefully an update will resolve it 100%.

    Thanks!
    Hey. I think I spoke too early. Mine didn't charge fully yesterday. I charged i overnight and it only went until 95%. I didn't remove the plug for another 4 hours ad it's still 95%. Not sure what the problem is but I think I need to visit a Samsung store.

    I've found that mine will charge fully now of I turn it off to charge. Just to make sure it's at 100 I unplug it first and then plug it back in and make sure it still says 100 before turning it on. Still very annoying.

    What will help is turning WIFI, GPS, Bluetooth antennas off for the night. Remember most apps are running n trying to do upgrades at night which is why your battery is lower.

    Due to this charging issue I had returned my Tab Pro 8.4 to amazon. They were awesome, they took it back without the original packaging and refunded my money before the package even got there.

    I decided to get the same model again. Charges to 100% every time. I recommend returning your device if you're having this issue or getting it repaired under warranty. This seems to be a rare defect.

    I was having similar problems and, based on preliminary tests, my problem appears to be related to power saving mode. I have no problem getting to 100% charge if power saving mode is turned OFF, but if power saving mode is turned on I can charge for six hours and the level only changes from, e.g., 74% to 87%. My charging level also seems to drop faster when power saving mode is turned on. Basically, power saving mode seems to be doing the reverse of what its name implies.

    I wonder if your problem was related to power saving mode, and wonder whether others have similar problems with power saving mode.

    What solved my issue was using my Tablet down to around 10-12% remaining, and then fully charging it. Haven't had any issues since I did this weeks ago.

    My charging issue came back again yesterday. Went 10 days charging fine. Then back to not hitting 100%. Sigh.

    This happened only the first time I tried to charge my tab. The battery indicated not charging so I rebooted the tab and tried again. Second time worked and I haven't had an issue since.

    hi everyone, I'm new here. Have been using this model since mid-April. Loved my phone but the charging problem is annoying me so much.
    Initially the charging was fast and good. I love the 2A output that charges up the phone fast. But subsequently, it started charging like a snail. I thought it was problem with my charger so I bought an OEM 2A output charger. It went back to working fine for about a month, and problem came back again.
    I have experimented with different power socket, and now have resorted to switching off the phone to charge while I sleep. Then again, it doesn't get to a 100% charge after my 8h of sleep.

    Even then the other issue I have is that the power is draining too fast.

    I've tried the vol+home+power reset. Now I'm going to back up all my data and do a factory reset. And be more selective with the apps I install.

    Anyone has success after a factory reset?

    Are you talking about the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 or a different device? Phone? Or is it the model that has sim card?

    yes, it's samsung galaxy tab pro 8.4.
    sent the phone to the service centre. they only replaced my charger & cable, and upgraded the software (from the original that came with the factory reset.
    not very useful. i'm not convinced.

    I have the same problem. Tried the usual tricks; run down the battery to 4%, reboot, etc.. none work. It will charge fine for a cycle or 2, then do the stall charging issue.

    i'm convinced it's a battery problem. mine drains a little too fast as well.
    let me use it till the end of this week cos i am coordinating an important event and can't do without a phone. then i shall go back and ask them to look at it again.
    Guess what... when I was at the service center, both the customers on my left & right of my counter were also having charging issues with their Samsung phones.

    The tab pro is a tablet not a phone.

    My tab pro SM-T325 is a tablet phone.
    There's only a fine line between a tablet and a phone. Most of them use the same hardware, probably a different battery capacity. We install the same apps on our phone and tablet too.

    I'm having a similar problem. My Samsung GTP 8.4 doesn't seem to charge unless I use the come-with cable and charger! That's not right, is it? I used a 2A charger. The battery icon had a red X in it, and in battery settings it said "not charging". Then I tried the come-with charger and one of my micro-USB cables and it STILL didn't work. I thought part of the appeal of Android tablets is that you don't need a proprietary charging setup - just enough amps. What's the deal?

    Update: My problem was fixed after I sent it in to check. They claimed that there was no problem with the phone but replaced my charger. Since then I never used the original charger but some of those OEM multi-usb charger that gives at least 2A output. Works fine.

    However, I do get the not charging cross when I connect one of my power bank to my phone. No idea why.

    Hello guys, my tab pro 8.4 seems had battery issue which I am not sure but I find out it was much much slow to recharge then mobile of samsung or HTC one. And one strange thing is last night I plug in to recharge so this morning was 100% before I went out then I back home it was 46%, I feel that is really NOT normal. ( I turn off all the functions e.g. wifi, screen rotation ...and so on). I google how to save the power and most of the asnwers I also know just turn off the apps which you do not use brablabla but what is the real solution for this samsung tab pro battery issue which I really do not want to change the new battery by myself. p.s. I also check the software update situation , it said is last version already. So I really do not know anymore how to solve this recharge slow(very slow) and power dead soon issues. HELP !!!

    I have the same problem with my SM-T325 , i've tried everything on forums : reset, hard reset( vol menu button power button) nothing works !

    Ps: I'm using genuine 2A white charger and even tried with Asus Nexus 7 charger 2A( ridiculously is that it works better than with the genuine samsung, the white one needs 5 unplug/plugs, with Asus Black charger only 3 unplug/plugs )

    I had another interesting experience with this tablet.... it charged 100% without notice that the battery is full(I saw this tiny little detail -battery full icon- ensures that it is really charged) restarted it to verify something and shock !!! the value dropped to 62% and the charging sequence stopped ...and even if it shows "charging" while I'm typing these lines, it dropped to 59% ). pff !!!

    PPS: The white charger works fine on my Galaxy S4 and i've installed an app that shows me the amperage during charging and it floats around 340 mAh - 600mAh - 990mAh - 3xx mAh and so on....(with both chargers - maybe it's a battery problem... but it's weird cuz if i manage to charge it completely, i do have a very good battery life )

    Welcome to Android Central! You're better off posting your question here: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Offhand, I'd guess your battery is failing. Try a new one.

    I have been charging all day and it won't move past 30%. AND my tablet charger has to be raised a bit to show the lightning bolt in the battery image. I tried the reboot I read elsewhere (push Volume Up, Home and then Power) and I'm trying again....That seemed to move it up 1% so far. Please HELP! I love my tablet and don't want it to die. Can you help me also with the charger issue? What is going on...all at one time!
