Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro: XL battery ensures record battery life
Unpacking the 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Active Tab, you might be surprised by the apparent lightness of the device. This is because the battery is separate and must be installed by the user - which is very quick and does not require any tools. In total, the rugged tablet weighs 653 grams, which makes it fairly heavy. The very long battery life makes up for that.
The 7600-mAh Lithium-Ion battery provides the Galaxy Tab Active Pro with an almost record-breaking battery life, reaching an impressive 16.5 h runtime during our Wi-Fi test and even beats the factory specification when it comes to displaying videos. Samsung promises 15 hours - we measured 20.5 h.vThe almost 6.5 h we measured under load are equally impressive.
The device accumulates further points for its good features. Samsung has even equipped this device with the digital input pen S Pen - which is fair enough considering the high price for the LTE version ($690). Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi version isn't a lot more affordable at $600.
