    New DELL Inspiron 7570 Li-ion Battery Initial/ First Charge Time

    Ok, so just about to installed my lovely new Dell laptop battery and according to some threads, the battery only needs 8 hours or so initial charge, according to other websites, I should charge my Li-ion / Lithium-ion for 16 / 24 hours dependant on whether I have fast charging option available ?

    Any thoughts /suggestions as I am inclined to let the battery fully charge and then give it an extra hour at which point the battery is then ready for general (unplugged) use.

    They will stop charging when full and may change to hold charge with very little current.

    Usually I let all devices with battery charge 24h when I use a battery for the first time. There is some conditioning taking place inside (Ni-Cd).

    That all isnt true for Li-Ion accus but wont hurt them and you can be sure it got 100% charge. Cant see any problem to let it on power even a week.

    Many will have it powered most of the time or year. Thats not good on badly built/programed devices but ok for the others. And lithium is best at 3/4 charge for long time storage. You should discharge completely every quater of a year till it switches off by itself to keep full capacity.

    Old school (Ni-Cd) batteries, those were the days ;-)
