Dtek60 - Just unboxed- does it need to be charged overnight before first use

Views: 737 Replies: 9
In the past when you bought a new phone the instructions were to charge it for 16-24 hours. I've just purchased a Dtek60, does this thumb rule still apply to modern phone batteries?

You should probably keep it plugged in because initial setup takes a bit of battery, and you'll want to play with it a lot,
But don't worry, go for it. As long as you keep your battery topped up when you can, you'll be fine.

You're probably going to be doing a lot of updating, so it won't hurt to keep it on charge while you're doing that, but there is no need to charge it for 16-24 hours.

I think it's good practice to fully charge a new device before using it. Just my opinion , however.

The electricity the manufacturer puts in the battery is special startup electricity. Best to charge it with regular electricity.

I always thought it was 8-12 hours Maybe when our devices had NiCad or NiMh batteries, but it's not an issue with the Li-ion batteries that most current devices use.
