How long do I charge my Z2 when I get it for the very first time on Tuesday? Do I keep it on there for 24 hours? And how long should I discharge it for? Till it's empty? Want to make the most out of my battery in the long run.

The manual states 30 minutes charging before first use. The battery is Li-Ion so no need to care about how you use it.

From my experience only leaving Li-Ion battery for long time discharged might get you in trouble.

To be honest there are many different opinions on this, and i dont believe in single 1 of them lol. I had many smartphones till now, and never did these fullcharge or discharge thingies, and never had worse battery life than it should be. But thats just my opinion. Oh and i read somewhere that its actually bad to completely discharge, as it may shorten its lifetime over time.

I agree with that statement.

So do you think I should only charge it for one hour and that's it? When should I put it on charger again? 10%?

It doesn't matter. Battery is pretty modern and not like the old phones. Charge how you like. Even when you fullcharge you can leave the charger in because it stops charging at 100%.

I charged mine for about 2 hours before powering it on to make sure it was 100% full, lithium ion batteries are not designed to be fully discharged then recharged, doing that just makes the battery life worse.
