Default First Battery Charging time?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi ya all!
I am getting the 8900 on Monday (probably) and wanted to ask who much time will I have to charge the battery for the first time?
Until the LED turns Green? Or a couple of hours more, because it is the first charging?
Thank you for your time.

When green, its full. Of course, you can use device while plugged in as well. Its not that sensitive. These batteries do not like to be charged down.

Lithium batteries are not like the old Ni Cads. They don't have a memory and don't need to be exercised/drained to operate better. In fact, discharging one of these new batteries actually hurts it. I always keep mine topped up and have not had any problems at all.

Thank you for your answers.
I understand that I should charge it until the LED indicator turns green, and there's no problem if I leave it any longer plugged in.
