Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro: XL battery ensures record battery life

The rugged tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro really is something special with its IP68 certification making it immune to dust and water. The exchangeable battery is another special feature that provides the tablet with an extraordinary battery life thanks to its capacity of 7600 mAh.

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.

In 1986, when I had annoyed my parents long enough, they finally bought me a C64 that I had seen at a friend's place - and immediately knew that this was what I wanted. Since then, the fascination for computers has never left me and basically I tinker with everything I can get my hands on. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and a hugely uncool IBM computer with 8088 CPU (and green IBM monochrome monitor!) in the early 90s, the list grew longer and longer. The current projects are called PC, Tablet and Smartphone.
