Fast Charging, Long Life
The GTS takes a charge in record time. Starting at zero percent, the 4,900 mAh battery in our 8.4-inch test unit reached 40 percent in about an hour and was fully charged in less than three. Charging is through a microUSB 2.0 cable and 2.0 amp AC adapter. Once fully charged, we unplugged the charger, connected to our Wi-Fi network, cranked the screen brightness to full and started our time-on-battery test. For the first hour, we checked email, downloaded apps, surfed the web and performed other general computing tasks. Then we connected to our Slingbox 500 (pictured). Total time on battery was six hours and eight minutes.
