Charge the Battery

Tips on charging your battery.

  1. Use the Original charger to maintain optimal battery performance over the life of your device.
    Note: The battery comes partially charged. When new, a fully discharged battery requires approximately 50 minutes to charge to 50% and 119 minutes to charge to 100%. You can use the device while charging. Battery life and charge cycles vary by use and settings.
