Thanks, but carrying a few spare batteries is far more efficient than the solar charging kit.
Yes, the battery is user-removable; that's why the tablet is on my short list for a mapping aid for this summer. I'm about to order it but seem unable to locate spare batteries.
I'm not driving and could be a several days away from power at a time. Worst case is I could use a pre-charged powerbank to recharge the Tab, but at lower efficiency (and extra weight) and the whole point of the user replaceable battery is to do that.
If I can't locate spares I might have to look at something else that I know I can buy batteries for.
Not good practice replying to oneself, but...
I'm getting closer to making a purchase; I really need to get something sorted. Does Samsung not make spare batteries for this tablet? Every advert and review for it goes on about being able to replace the battery and have spares. If that's not so because batteries cannot be obtained, it's a very poor show by Samsung.
@LordFox: I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble locating spare batteries for the Galaxy Tab Active 3. In this instance please check out the retailers listed below, as they deal in genuine Samsung parts and accessories. If you're unable to find what you're looking for, please contact the retailers directly to enquire about ordering the battery.
Thank you Andrew.
One of those doesn't list it, one says discontinued and the third is out of stock of both battery types. That one says "usually dispatched within ten days" which isn't really confidence inspiring when it is shown as no stock to begin with.
Please could you confirm that the following two batteries are suitable for the Galaxy Tab Acctive 3? The site that lists them with no stock just says, "Samsung" with no details.
