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.
In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom (J.G.Ballard).
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.
