    How long should I charge my battery for first time? Manual only states normal charge times but from what I've heard the first charge should be really long. Does anyone know if this is true and if so how long?

    Lithium Ion batteries have no memory so doesn't matter how you charge it. It doesn't need an initial charge and doesn't need to discharge.

    You may find your first charge takes a couple of hours.
