List of known issues related to the tablet crashing
Samsung Galaxy Tab A shutting off
One known issue that only affects the Tab A version is the tablet powering off due to a weak battery. When the telemetry is drawing power if the sounds come on with a weak battery it draws too much power and shuts off. The fix is to turn the volume down or upgrade to the new tablet.
To prevent overheating due to the environment, try to avoid direct sunlight. We experienced that in shadowed areas this type of overheating does not happen. To save battery life and prevent power loss try to keep the screen turned off and the telemetry unplugged when not using the system.
