Did you know.......if you let your Samsung tablet's battery go 100% flat, it will no longer work.
My OH has one, and yes, its not samsung's fault it was not charged up, but if the battery goes totally flat, it will not charge up again....ever. (unless........)

The only 50/50 way of getting it to work is to disconnect its battery, count 3 and connect it back and charge strait away. Its 50/50 because there is no g'tee it will work, and you also have to open it with out damaging it. (I am waiting for the arrival of a spudger to open it / try to open it)

Moral of this story. Always charge your tablet.

This is true for many makes of tablet. There are many that have been sat in warehouses unsold that have died as a result.

I have had Samsung tabs from the first one, never had a issue, just made sure they have a maintenance charge once in a while. I have pulled back tablet batteries from the dead, what it is, Is the charging circuitry will not supply a charge if the cell drops bellow 0.8v - if you remove the battery from the device you can trickle charge at 10-50ma @2-3v with a bench power supply over 5-10 hours this pulls the cell up above the lower threshold - and it will then take a charge via usb

Never leave bare cells unattended put them in a non metallic dish (pyrex, etc) or a li-ion/lipo charging pouch, failing that a fire blanket
