Samsung Gear VR - Using the Charger

Caution Use only Samsung-approved USB cables and 2 Amp power adapters.

Note To lessen battery drain, you can connect the charger to the charging port on the bottom of the Gear VR.

If the Gear VR is used while the charger is connected

  • In normal use situations the Gear VR is powered by the charger and does not use the mobile device's battery.
  • In high power demand situations (in excess of 1.5 Amp) the Gear VR uses both power sources.

If the Gear VR is disconnected from the charger while in use

  • The image on the screen may be briefly inactive.
  • The screen recalibrates and the Gear VR may not recognize head movements.

If the Gear VR is not used while the charger is connected

  • The mobile device battery is charged.

Charging accessories may be purchased from any Verizon Wireless retail store or at the online store.
