Charging new battery

\015 How much time to charge a new battery?\015

Answers :

That completely depends on the battery, my normal battery charging routine on new laptops is i allow the laptop to completely die and then i charge for 24 hours and then let completely die without charging and then charge for 24 hours. repeat this 4 or 5 times. This should give you the best battery life.
\015\012Charge time is normally a few hours for laptops tho.
\015\012for L ion batterys it is recommended you start a charge between 15% and 20% life remaining.
\015\012Hope this answered your question
\015\012Have a great day!
Usually 8 hours.
\015\012for first charge.
\015\012on a brand new battery
