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.
My fascination for computers started with the C64. Since then, I’ve put everything that comes my way in terms of hardware through its paces. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and the first PC with an 8088 CPU, my list of projects has grown increasingly longer. For more than 20 years now I have also turned my hobby into my profession and have been active in the mobile section of Notebookcheck since 2021. Before that, I worked as a hardware editor for IDG Media (tecChannel.de) and VNU Business Publications (PC professional), among others.

I completed my master's degree in translation at the University of Vienna a few years ago and have been working as a translator for English, German and French ever since. I first started translating for Notebookcheck in 2017 and have learned more about computers than I ever imagined, and I have even become the person my family turns to for advice when it comes to consumer electronics. Other than that I also focus on everything connected to sustainability and renewable energy.
