Charging from the case battery
If your Galaxy Buds case is charged, you can simply place your buds inside (ensuring that the charging contacts are touching), close the case lid and they will automatically begin pulling power from the case. This will continue until the buds are fully charged, or the case battery runs out of power.
Charging from the mains/external power source
If your case battery has no charge left, or if you just want to top up the battery when near a power outlet, you can plug in the USB charging cable. You can charge the case battery with or without the Buds inside. If the earbuds are inside when the case is plugged in, both will be charged simultaneously.
You can also charge your Galaxy Buds using a Qi-enabled wireless charging pad, including the Wireless Powershare feature available on some Samsung devices.
Checking the charge status
When you connect the earbuds and the charger case, the LED indicators flash different colours to indicate the current battery level.
- Green: Fully charged or above 60% battery.
- Yellow: Between 30 and 60% battery.
- Red: Charging or below 30% battery.
- Flashing Red: Charging error. Reconnect the case and earbuds.
You can also check the battery level in the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone. Open the Galaxy Wearable app to view the battery percentage for the earbuds and charging case. When the battery is low, a notification will display on your phone.
