The vender provided instructions state that for the first few days you must let the battery drain completely then plug the phone to the charger. The vender also states that the battery is Lithium-ion.
I found the following info online, Google "Condition your new cell phone's battery" and inform yourself >>>
"The only time you should ever intentionally fully discharge a Li-ion battery is if your phone is not properly reading the battery. In other words, if you go from 100% -> 90% in ten minutes but go from 90% -> 80% in one hour with the same amount of usage, that means your phone is not reading the battery output evenly. If this is the case, then fully discharging your battery once and then recharging it can fix the issue of your phone not reading the battery properly. Take note, however, this full discharge/recharge won't increase your battery life -- it will only ensure your phone reads the battery properly.
People often confuse Li-ion and NiCad batteries and try to condition Li-ion batteries by charging/discharging them 4-6 times. Trying to condition a Li-ion battery like it is a NiCad battery (i.e. charging/discharging the Li-ion battery 4-6 times) hurts the Li-ion battery more than helps it. So, be sure to condition your new cell phone's battery, but be sure to condition it properly. Otherwise, you may be doing more harm than good. If you are not sure what type of battery you have, read the labels on the battery - they will always say whether the battery is Lithium-ion or Nickel-cadmium."
so should we, or not, Try to condition this battery? if so, it leads me to believe this battery is "not" truly a Lithium-ion Battery. If it is a Lithium-ion Battery, why does the VENDER provided instructions state charging/discharging them 4-6 times?
