Hypothetically, they tell you to charge it because if the battery is too low and you turn on the device, you will damage the battery. I just plug it in, give it a min, and turn it on.
But i you just charge it without turning on or anything the sucker could be half charged meaning you are ruining the battery straight away by overcharging.
Always just turn on first see wot charge it has, Ive never recieved a new phone with NO charge in the battery. Run it dead, THEN give it good 10 - 16 hours charge (however long you can bear to wait!)

I've been using this for about a month now, very very happy with it.
I don't think the 2200mah rating is accurate but from dead it gives 60% so probably only 1000mah or so really but it is so so useful or the price, quality is nice I got in black though cos you know these cheaper finishes will pick up marks badly especially in white.
Just wanted to add this battery case also has a kickstand by the camera - Its not too sturdy because it obviously needs to be central with a device of this size, but it works to a fashion. Another really nice thing is there is some sort of audio duct to the front because sound is coming from both rear and a small grill on the front bottom right.
