Reviving Your Device: How Long Does it Take to Recharge Your Tablet?

ChargingOne of the most important selling points of a tablet is its battery life - these devices are only valuable as long as they have power. As tablets continue to become more widely utilized in healthcare, key features such as battery life are being evaluated with a more critical eye. These devices need to be readily available to meet the various needs of both clinical staff and patients. An inadequate battery life can result in wasted man hours and unhappy patients.

While the longevity of a battery is often the focus of many product reviews and evaluations, there is still the question of what happens after the battery runs out. How long does it take to recharge your tablet back to 100%? 

For many in the medical field, these elements of battery life are a major concern. With the growth of EMR and valuable healthcare apps, tablets have become an essential clinical tool. Being able to get your device up and running quickly is just as important as how long the battery lasts. 

Below is a breakdown of recharge times for 13 of the most popular tablets on the market today.
