    It should power up once it's plugged in, and has charged the phone a little. If it doesn't, you have an issue.

    Charge for 10hours? 2 hours should be enough to charge from zero to hundred percent..

    it's best to charge to full and then leave it on charge for 10 hours. after that, drain battery to 20% and charge to full again.
    even on LiOn batteries. AFTER that, charge as you like. LiOn batteries have NO memory effect, like NiCad batteries do.

    8hours charge is the usual time period for new phones.. If your friends phone didn't come with any charge, take it back. All phones are charged ,half charged so consumers can check 😂

    I agree with broar. Every phone I've owned, five now, all bought new, has come with a battery about half-charged.

    Is this 8/10 hours charge thing a hoax or for real? How it affects the battery life? Can someone please explain?

    it's for real. the initial 8/10 hours of charging gets the battery to full capacity. the drain to 20% then a second full charge gets the battery conditioned so that it will last according to what the specs. on the phone are. keep in mind that what the manufacturer states is with NORMAL use and nothing running in the background.

    New doubt - How to charge.

    For eg - When I bought a new Phone I charge phone with these methods which one is correct.

    * New phone didn't turn on & charged 10 Hours.
    * New phone plugged in switched on & start using after all settings set keep the phone aside for 10 hours charging.
    * New Phone have little amount of charge in it may be 18% or something some shop dealers says 1st drain out full charge & then charge 10 Hours.
    * New Phone when plugged in switched on & start using after 100% remove the charger & using. 100% charge in 3 hours only not plugged in to 10 hours.

    These are some of my main doubts.
    My Question Here is Which is the best option ? Or these all wrong tell me your suggestions :-)


    Nokia's product catalogue says it has 50% drain it out fully & charge 100% They says

    " You don't need to charge the battery for a specific length of time, and you can use the phone while it's charging."

    I don't know why they say so?!
    Why they don't say charge for 08 or 10 hours. But Nokia's shop dealers says it. Charge for 8 hrs then use but product catalogue not. Why ?!!

    Help Me Friends

    Thank you all for all previous conversations about 1st startup.

    Batteries are not all the same... The older Lithium Polymer (Li-Po) batteries needed conditioning. Charge for 10 + hours before first use to "train" the battery...

    Then batteries got chips in them and became smart. And now Smart Batteries with Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) don't need conditioning or training. Charge and go. just like the Nokia documents say. The guys at the store are still giving old advice for yesterday's battery.

    Vishnu Dharmapal, did your new phone ever charge and boot up?
