    every battery needs some type of maintenance and this is what i suggest for all Li Ion batteries of any kind.

    yes all batteries will eventually fail but it is not a just cause to completely ignore them.
    What research have you seen on this that indicates lithium ion batteries need cycling the first when new. While with NiCad and Nickel Metal Hydride batteries, this was the recommendatoin, it is not the case with Li-Ion. None of the instructions I have seen for Li-ion batteries suggest cycling.

    JCG3 see my post #5 and #8 and check out http://www.batteryuniversity.com
    Not sure what research you're referring to but as Rcbjr says, there is no supporting evidence
    behind cycling lithium ion batteries and it is supported in the articles linked in my posts.

    Re: Do the BB's actually charge to 100%?

    Hey not that I'm taking either side but I've order at least 3 extended life batteries from SEDIO and I believe they run LI's and they advise at least 2 to 3 full cycles at the beginning of battery in order to get the full potential....
    Not sure if this is correct however, they DO make batteries

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I have seen the same thing on all my batteries from Seidio. I have even done this with the OEM battery that came with my first Pearl and now get 2 full days from all my batteries.

    Re: Do the BB's actually charge to 100%?

    I usually did that, but after reading this, I'm not so sure anymore. I usually let it go to 25%, out of the whole cycling myth, and because I have limited power ports and am too lazy to plug the BB charger in. It runs for 2, 3 days on a full charge, and I use it for email, IM, and listening to mp3s over Stereo Bluetooth when between classes. Its amazing how fast it charges though, from the wall outlet. It can be at 25% when I sleep, and the next morning, I just plug it in when I wake up, brush teeth, get changed, etc, and it will be at 100% before I leave.

    Re: Do the BB's actually charge to 100%?

    see yall i am not to far off and that link is linked to one battery company i have read more than one website and dozens of directions for different devices leading me to my above conclusion. i am sorry if i am the out spoken one but i have brought back many a battery (LiIon) from most certain death by this practice.

    trust me if you want to or dont i really dont care but i will say what i know. both from research and experience.

    Re: Do the BB's actually charge to 100%?

    So recently i learned from another stacker that Sedio no longer advises cycling the battery prior to regular usage.
    Again, I'm not inferring anything just leaving it open for thought and wanted to make sure that my information is accurate.
