How long should i charge my new phone for before use?

    Getting a new phone tomorrow(Nokia). Will it make any difference to the battery life on the amount of time charged for?

    Untill it says full, or like the old wife tales of 24 hours?



    The new class of batteries don't actually need that first charge to be 10-12hrs, etc. Usually the instruction manual will tell you how long to charge the battery for on the first occasion, just follow wot the manufacturer says......

    I asked this a while, I was told the new batteries don't need the silly long charge, so just charge it till its full and away you go

    I don't think I've let a battery charge for more than a few seconds before turning a new phone or laptop on for the first time. I'm a nerd, shiny new toys excite me way too much for me to wait for them. It doesn't seem to cause any damage, so I guess it's okay.


    Until it's charged.
