needing direct online purchase link for an OEM battery recharger for a Samsung tablet (Model GT-P5113)

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

            I have a Samsung android or tablet (Model GT-P5113) which has a battery that fails to recharge.  After careful testing of the re-charger with a technician on the phone, we found the voltage output of 5v was normal.  However, the amperage output of it was only .44A.  It requires an amperage output of 2.0A to recharge the battery.  The technician informed me that I will need to purchase the OEM re-charger for this tablet because no other re-charger will work for it.  He said I can order it at samsungparts.com site which brings me to this question.  In order to gain reassurance of purchasing the correct one, could someone provide a direct online purchase link for the OEM re-charger needed?  

             In closing, I look forward to hearing back from everyone regarding this request.  

             Thank you

             George

Hello

          I am not sure if this will be needed in the search, but, the tablet is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 device.  Sorry for omitting this earlier.  

           Thank you

There are a number of places that sell chargers, not all of the them Samsung. The site below claims to be an authorized Samsung supplier and I suggest you start here.

See if this will work for you.

Hello

           I apologize for not explaining this up front, but, I noticed the last link was not within the US region.  Could  you provide an Amazon link for this same item which sells within the US?

           Thank you

Hello John

             When I utilized your recommended link of http://www.samsungparts.com/Products/Parts_and_Accessories/GT-P5113TSRXAR/Default.aspx, I noticed several on the page.  Which one should I purchase given the needs of my situation?

              Thank you

It looks like it is this one:

http://www.samsungparts.com/Products/Parts_and_Accessories/PID-GH82-06506A.aspx?model=GT-P5113TSRXAR   and is specified for your model.

It is pricey for an AC adapter.
GMartinAuthor Commented:
Hello

           Thank you so much John.  There is no doubt this is the one.   Unfortunately, I was not expecting to pay that much for an AC adapter which brings me to a follow up question.  Seeing that we know the voltage output requirement of the AC adapter needs to be 5v and the amperage output of it is 2 amps,  could I possibly purchase a less pricey one which can substitute for the expensive OEM one at samsungparts.com?   Rahul provided an Amazon link to one, but, it is not within the US.   It seems logical and reasonable this alternative should work just as long as it is outputting the necessary voltage and amperage.

OEM parts are often pricey. If you try a substitute, you have to take the risk on the part or ask for a money back guarantee.

Hello John

            I was afraid of that.  In your own honest opinion, should I consider just simply replacing the Samsung tablet?  If I am not mistaken, most tablets like this one are generally $100 and even less depending upon promotions and special sales.  It seems like this might be the best option especially if the re charger comes with the new tablet.

           What are your thoughts on that option?

           Thanks

           George
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Replacing the tablet is possibly the most cost effective over the long haul because you are starting from a newer base. I assume a new one will come with a proper charger.
GMartinAuthor Commented:
Hi John

            With respect to cost, would would be the expected price range for a tablet?

             Thanks

             George

I see Samsung tablets from $200 for a Tab 4 (Cdn $) up to over $500 (Cdn $) for a Tab Pro. You need to be guided by your own needs a pocketbook.

Hello

            Just as an update to this situation, I need to add something else found wrong with this tablet.  As I understand it, the table can either be powered via a USB connection to another working device like a desktop, laptop, etc. or powered by its regular AC adapter which does not power or recharge the batter.  Since it can  not be powered by the USB chord or interface with another device, I have to assume there is probably more wrong with it than originally thought.

It may be better, as you suggested, to start with a new tablet.

Hello and Good Evening

           While in Walmart earlier today, I noticed a USB to power outlet connector.  One end of the cable had both, a micro-USB connector and a standard USB connector (dual on the same chord) and the other end simply plugs into a power outlet.  As I was looking at this accessory, I began wondering how I might be able to tie this into my situation for troubleshooting purposes.  What I am getting at is simply this.  Is it possible or feasible to at least power up the Samsung android or tablet (Model GT-P5113) using a USB to power outlet connector?  Incidentally, I know the Samsung technician told me this table requires 5v and 2amps to recharge the battery.  However, I am wondering if 1amp would be sufficient to simply power it on.  The reason I ask is because it noticed the USB to power outlet connector can output up to 1amp.  

            In closing, I apologize for so many follow up questions  I simply want to try out some troubleshooting strategies before attempting to replace the entire device.  If it indeed powers up from the USB to power outlet connector, then, it would make sense the battery itself might just need replacing in addition to the recharger.  Both would be ruled out given this hypothetical scenario.

            What are your thoughts about these ideas and possibilities?

             Thanks

             George

For any charger to charge any rechargeable battery, half as many amps as required is generally insufficient to charge the battery. That is almost where you started from here.

I trust this helps.

Hello John

            Even though 1amp would be insufficient to recharge the battery, I am wondering if it would be sufficient enough to at least power on the tablet.  I am just trying to get a clue in terms of what is really wrong with it.

            Thanks

You are back at "take you own risk" in trying it out. I don't know whether that would work or not. You will have to try to see if it will power it up.

If you are going to try to fix the tablet, you may wish to start a question more directly related to that.

The Samsung site shows no photo. Surely they are not charging $168.00 for this:

Input Voltage Range: AC 100V - 240V / Rapid Power: 5V 2A / Brand-new / Extra long 6.5 ft cord

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

             I do have an update from last night.  While still connected using the old re-charger which outputs 5v but only .44amps, I did notice the battery trying to recharge on the screen.  However, the screen would fade away after a few seconds.  Just out of curiosity, I pressed the power button again and noticed it was still charging the battery which led me to a couple of hunches,  First, the AC re-charger is obviously not outputting the necessary amps as indicated by the fading out on the screen in addition to the test ran much earlier which indicated the re-charger outputting .44amps when 2.0amps is required.  Secondly, I do not think this is a battery issue either because I do see attempts made by the weak re-charger to fully charge it.  

             With respect to the next step, I have decided to go with Nick's suggestion.  Using the link of http://www.amazon.com/Gt-p1010-cw16arb-Gt-p1010cw16arb-Gt-p5113-ts16arb-Gt-p5113ts16arb-Gt-p5113t-svxar/dp/B00947LCZW I went ahead and ordered it last night.  This was a tough call though because John certainly answered my question too with the supplied link of http://www.samsungparts.com/Products/Parts_and_Accessories/PID-GH82-06506A.aspx?model=GT-P5113TSRXAR   When making an online purchase, I have to go along with price too in the grand scheme of things.   The suggested re-charger indicated within Nick's Amazon link is certainly much more affordable and within the price range of what I would expect to pay for one.   I know I am taking a gamble here, but, I am confident the amazon link given by Nick will prove to be the solution needed in this given situation.  The re-charger is scheduled to arrive April 7.  Once it is here, I will post the outcome.  

                Thanks again everybody for your help.

                George

George,
In many cases generic parts can be just as good as OEM. I'm sure the one you get will work for you. Thanks.
GMartinAuthor Commented:
Hello Nick,

            Yes, I am in agreement with your point.  Seeing that I know the required voltage and amperage output of the AC re-charger for the tablet, it seems reasonable to believe or conclude that simply getting one that matches those technical specifications (rather it be generic or OEM) should be sufficient.
