The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is an excellent budget-oriented Android tablet ripe with smaller bezels, an included S Pen, great design, and quite a minimalist intuitive UI that grips you from the get-go. However, with an included 7,040 mAH battery – this begs the question, how long does it take to charge the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite?
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite charges from 0 to 100 in 3 hours and 50 minutes using the included 7 W charger. However, if you use a 15 W fast charger, the device will charge in 2 hours and 30 minutes.
In this article, we’re going to go over the charging times of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite!
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite’s Charging Times
The Tab S6 Lite is a budget-oriented tablet. While we’re happy that it does include a charger unlike most premium tablets, the included charger can lead to the tablet charging up really slow at times.
In fact, the 7 W charger can lead to the tablet discharging when you are using it for more demanding tasks. This can be extremely frustrating for those using this tablet completely plugged in. Thankfully, Samsung has implemented 15 W Fast Charging for this particular tablet which can take your charging times down quite significantly.
Here’s a quick look at the charging types present on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022):
|Charging Wattage||Charging Time|
|7 W (Included Charger)||3 hours 50 minutes|
|15 W (Fast Charging)||2 hours 30 minutes|
|30 W (Fast Charging)||2 hours 30 minutes|
As you can see, the charging time on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite retains its maximum efficacy at 15 W. However, you can still use higher wattage chargers which will automatically drop down to 15 W.
Will Fast Charging Damage My Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite?
No, fast charging will not damage your Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. The charging wattage offered on the tablet is one that’s officially recommended by Samsung and is, therefore, completely safe to use.
However, do not charge your tablet in hot environments. This is because charging can generate a lot of heat and coupling that with the hotter environment can lead to your battery being damaged quickly due to excessive warmth.
If you do live in an extremely hot area (40 C / 104 F) we recommend using 7 W charging instead as the heat generated from higher wattage charging and the background temperature may damage your battery quicker.
How to Enable Fast Charging on Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite?
Before you can get the best charging speed on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, you will need to enable fast charging. Here’s how you can do so:
- Open the Settings application on your tablet
- After doing so scroll down to Device Care
- Now, tap on Battery and select Fast Charging
To check whether your device is now charging quicker, open your notification bar and see whether your device says Fast Charging when connected to an outlet. Otherwise, a reboot may be necessary.
The implementation of 15 W charging leads to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite actually being usable in situations where it needs to be constantly plugged in with higher consumption applications being used on it.
And, the included 7 W charger, while not great, does lead to the tablet charging in under 4 hours with a screen time of 10 hours. So, if you don’t use it that much; investing in a fast charger may not be your shtick after all.
I love tech and all about it. I'm interested in finding ways how they can make my life more productive, and I share my knowledge with my blog readers. I'm an iPad Pro, iPhone, MacBook, and Apple Watch user, so I know a thing or two about these devices and try to write helpful content around these topics.
