...I usually just open the box, plug it in to start charging, and turn the sucker on! I see no reasonably important reason to wait for 100% charge on first time use and have never seen evidence to support it does any good (or not doing so is bad).
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.
