Geek Out: Do You Charge Your Gadgets Before Your First Use?

I finally invested in the Clarisonic device that Bella has been raving about and rushed home to try it, only to find the instructions suggest charging the device for 24 hours before its first use. It was the ultimate luxury gadget letdown — all I wanted to do was test it, and I had to wait patiently.

Most battery experts claim you can prolong battery life by charging them fully before their inaugural use. It makes sense, but it's not always feasible (or fun!) to wait. Do you fully charge your gadgets before your first use?

I always do. I'd rather have a longer life span than play around with it for 20 minutes.

Yeah I do. Though the wait always kills my excitement. But how true is it really?

to be honest, i'm not overly patient with things, so i don't always charge them if i don't have to. i feel like i waited so long to get something, and then if i have to wait even longer to use it and play around - then it's a buzz kill. i really do feel your pain there!

LOL jessie, that's what I thought too :P I usually use up the little bit of juice it comes with first then charge it over night - I can't help myself.

I had to, every shop that sold rechangeable electronic always said something like that... change for at least 1 day first before using it.. I still don't know why.. is it really matters if we don't charge that long?

I LOVE my Clairsonic. And I was as upset as you are when I had to wait a whole 24 hours to play with it! I do charge if the instructions tell me I *must*. Sigh...

Yep - I always charge them first

I only charge when there's no juice in it. Most of the time, there's juice so I don't charge them until I'm done playing with them.

Yeah, I'm too anxious to wait! I'm not tech-savvy, so I never would have known that it could have any effects on its performance, either.

Only if there's no juice at all

I always do, even though it's difficult not to start using them right away! :nerdgirl:

No, I would be severely depressed if I wasn't able to open and play around with a gadget straight out of the box if even for just a few minutes. There should be like a law or something for that!

I do, even though at times it kills me! I still don't know what that thing is. Going to google now.
