If you’ve ever wondered how long does it take to charge a new Tablet for the first time ? Either because you recently acquired one or because you are curious. Here we will tell you everything you need to know about this topic, so that you get the most out of your Tablet’s battery.
When buying a new device, in this case a Tablet. The question always arises as to whether we should let it fully charge and whether it is necessary to leave many connected. Currently there is a wide variety of models, but most already incorporate a fast charger. With which you will not have to wait many hours to use your device again.
For how long should we charge our Tablet for the first time?
When we buy a new device, it usually always needs to be charged in order to use it. Because they almost always come flat or with a very low battery. In the case of modern Tablets, they have a lithium cell as a battery, similar to the one incorporated in current phones.
This technology is extremely innovative, because it does not have the limitations that existed with previous versions. Being able to be used for much longer, here you will not have to worry about giving it special attention when charging, and you will only have to be aware of when it is already charged to avoid overcharging.
Everything will depend on the model you have , but in case you are not very clear about this, you can charge it for at least 5 hours the first time, after that you can use it without problems. After this time you should turn on your device and start using it normally.
If for some reason, you find that the battery lasts very little, you can recharge it for a few more hours. If this is prolonged, the battery may be broken or has come with a factory defect, for this you can check the condition or the charge cycles of your battery , to make sure of this problem.
How to extend the life of my Tablet?
When charging our device it is important to take into account several factors. On the one hand we have the time to leave it charging, depending on which charger you use, it will be more or less time. The important thing in these cases is to ensure that it does not exceed 90% when loading.
This is what it does is help prevent the battery from exceeding its charge limits and causing device errors. An overcharged battery is just as bad as a fully discharged one. If we take this into account, we can considerably increase the useful life of our terminal.
Another factor is whether or not we use generic chargers, since these do not have a certification, we cannot be sure if it does its job correctly. In these cases it is better to buy an original charger of the brand that we are using. In addition, if we usually charge our cell phone at night , an original charger can give us much more confidence that our Tablet will not be damaged.
Using non-recommended chargers can lead to device errors. Depending on the brand, some usually show an error message and others may not charge the battery directly. This is implemented to prevent the device from suffering some kind of damage, due to being exposed to voltages that are not adequate.
How do I know when my Tablet has reached 90% charge?
If your device is new, it will most likely not indicate the percentage of the battery, so it can be difficult to deduce how much it is missing to be able to disconnect it.
This is something that is solved in a simple way, and you will only have to make a few configurations to your device. As a first step you must go to the settings menu. This applies to any type of Tablet, from here you can use the search bar to minimize the effort.
You will only have to write the word ‘battery’, by doing so you will see that you will get the direct access that takes you to the information about it. You must tap on it and then look for a section that says ‘show percentage’.
As we are in the battery menu, when activating this option we will see in number how much our battery has left. This is all we have to configure, once this is done we will have no problem knowing when to disconnect our Tablet from the power.
