The first time you get a new gadget (whether it be a laptop, smartphone, or tablet), you pop the box open, fully charge it, and go. Does this phrase describe your charging habits? It's easy to plug-n-play when it comes to your tech, but optimizing your battery the first time you use your new gadget will help keep your battery a top performer. How do you do this?

Good news is, you can do this even if your gadgets aren't new to help keep batteries running on all cylinders.
