    As the title says. How long do you need to charge a Lumia 640 the 1st time to format the battery?

    Does it even need it? I always read online that nowadays you don't need formatting, other people say that you still need, or that it's simply faster to do it once.

    So how is it ?

    Nothing specifically about it as far as I've read it. It's not touched upon at all :-/

    No special procedures are needed, although some people may claim there is. Just charge the battery as often and for as long as you need to. Whatever you do, the battery will easily out last the time you'll have your phone.

    Modern Li-po batteries do not need a run in. Just charge it up and don't worry about it. Battery power is like the gas in your car. You fill it up and use as required. You drive for 10 hours solid it will be empty. You drive for a couple of hours a day it will see out most of the week. Too many people on here think a phone has weak battery life if it doesn't last 2 days with almost constant intensive use. Truth is most phones manage between 6-10 screen on hours depending on what's also running on idle. I get over a day on my old 820 which has a tiny battery...I am fairly sure I could empty it in 6 hours if I tried though.
