    Hi all,

    I've come to realize that the Note 10.1 has a battery reconditioning cycle. Every so often the device will take a long time to charge - even if it is connected to a power point. You will need to turn the tablet OFF completely and let it charge for about 12-14 hours. If you leave it on the device will not charge. It will not charge via the PC in this condition.

    Douvie.

    That sounds like a bad (or wrong) charger or a bad, (or wrong), cable. It shouldn't take that long even on.

    During the "recycling stage" it can take that long. In fact, all my android devices (2 tablets and 2 smartphones) have done this on one or two occasions. Besides it can't be the charger or cable, or on the other hand the device beause I performed a few fault-finding procedures to check all three.

    All rechargeable batteries need to be "cycled" on occasions, even UPS batteries, to extend the serviceable life of the battery. And it appears that most Android devices have this feature built in.
