How To Fix Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Battery Drain Issue [Manage Battery]

Contrary to what many owners believe, there were no reported glitches on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 that drains the battery faster after a few months of usage. Some users, however, started complaining about the device’s battery usage. According to them, it would now take just a few hours of usage and they would be required to recharge their tablet. This article will also address one of the emails we received from our readers. Read on as it might just be the article you were looking for to fix the problem you’re currently experiencing.
Problem: Hi, my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is seems to be eating the battery faster than before. When I bought it a couple of months ago, I could use it for almost 24 hours before I would be required to recharge it. Today, however, I couldn’t even use it for 12 hours. Is there any problem with my tablet?

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, being a tablet, is expected to eat more power than smartphones. That is why Samsung has given it 7000mAh battery that could power it up to 15 hours of straight multimedia usage or up to 2000 hours in standby mode. The point is, it comes with a bigger battery pack and aside from a few inconsistencies in the software that could help drain the battery, users are expected to manage battery usage.

There was no reported bug or glitch that drains battery faster on the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, so we couldn’t wait for an update to fix drain issue because there is nothing to fix. Some developers, however, said that there are always some inconsistencies between the software and the hardware that could “contribute” to making the battery drain faster. They could be rectified update after update but in reality, those inconsistencies consume battery less than the email app in your tablet.

In this post, we would want to point out some tips on how to conserve battery in your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1:
  •  Tap on Recent Apps icon to display the list of apps that are still running in the background.
  •   Swipe left or right to close any application. It would be better to close all of them to maximize battery.
  •  Turn Off Bluetooth if not in use. Your tablet will keep finding any Bluetooth available so it eats up battery too.
  •  Turn Off Wi-Fi if not in use. It eats up more battery than Bluetooth. Thus, if you don’t want to connect to the internet, it’s better you turn it off.
  •  Turn all volumes down.
  •   Set the tablet to lock itself sooner. The screen eats up more battery than you think.
  •  Do everything you can think of that would help minimize battery use.
Being a user, you balance your battery conservation measures with usability. If you are one of the people who are always waiting for messages or have to check online from time to time, then Wi-Fi should be kept on most of the times.


I just ran into this problem after 1 year of use with good battery life. II have shut off everything and there are no background apps open and the problem still occurs. I wonder if the techies could really identify and then fix the problem rather than just blaming the end user's use as the root of the problem.


There is a real problem with Samsung devices. The only solution I have found is here:

Even if you can't find the "Low Battery Dump" option, just accessing to the Partition,and getting cleared the cache will help a lot. The cell standby went down from 45% which was the total shown, to only an 11%.Great isn't it?!!!
