I've never understood this reason, and every time you purchase a phone, you are told this (well mostly!)

Charge your phone for at least 14 / 18 / 24 hours before use!

Now why? And why is it important? And if you don't follow this, what are the consequences?

Anyone shed any light or give an opinion?

my opinion: this rule doesn't apply to li-ion batteries... when you buy a new phone the battery is already charged 40-50-60%...

I've heard that it affects battery life in the long run.

However, isnt there a newish type of battery that never loses it's life?

There is a fascinating reason behind all this that I was reading about almost 2 years ago now. There's a fantastic website about batteries that has all the technical information behind the chemicals used and why charging matters etc. etc.
I'll dig up the link for you MattC.

told you so Matt

Charging lithium-ion batteries[SIZE=2] [COLOR=#666633](BU12)[/COLOR]
Lithium-ion is a very clean system and does not need priming as nickel-based batteries do. The 1st charge is no different to the 5th or the 50th charge. Stickers instructing to charge the battery for 8 hours or more for the first time may be a leftover from the nickel battery days. [/SIZE]
