Complete dull question, but I have in my mind its about 16 hours for a 1st time charge. Am I right in thinking this?

I know it was always recommended the first charge was ridiculously long, but I don't tend to see that anymore, not sure if it's different now.

no there doesnt seem to be anything stated in the booklet about recommended 1st time charge, may just be best to leave it on all day

The majority of batteries nowadays are lithium-ion batterys and I believe they do not require a long charge in the first instance.

Just charge for as long as the manual says a full charge should take you will not gain anything for leaving it on longer

You also dont have to run the battery down flat before charging as it will make no difference to the life cycle/ability to hold charge of the battery

Yeah, a few years ago it was the first thing in big letters in the instructions for anything with a battery, charge for XX hours before first use. Now I never seem to see that.

Don't suppose it would hurt to give it a good charge anyway.

I got a new laptop for Christmas, the manual said to charge it until the red light went blue, didn't take very long at all.

I had a fujitsu siemens laptop that needed this first charge. I think it was even longer.
