    Default Should I completely drain the battery?

    I vaguely remember reading somewhere that completely draining the battery on first use will help extend battery life. Anyone planning on doing this?

    I saw on another forum that this doesn't matter with the Li-On battery in the Evo. Is this correct? I hope it is, I always forget to do this!

    with newer batteries this is not necessary. Li-on batteries dont need to be drained fully before use.

    I don't know the correct answer to this but I will probably do it. I figure I will be playing on it so much that I will probably completely drain the battery anyways.

    This is correct.. Li-Ion batteries don't have a memory like some of the other ones, so you can't really 'condition' it.

    Don't store it in a hot place and try not to store it at 100% charge, those are the biggest reasons that batteries die early.
